    Just finished A New Song, with Father Tim meeting a man in the dark street. Which book continues this story? Or are we left with a cliff hanger?

    Can someone tell me which book Buck and Pauline get together, and is that the same one where Buck and Father Tim find Sammy. I thought I’d read all the books in order but I must have missed this one.

      I’m just enjoying a re read of the series. They find Sammy in “In This Mountain”. But I’m not sure if Buck and Pauline got together in New Song. Didn’t they fly to White Cap to have Fr. Tim marry them?i

    I am now on my 9th book in the Mitford Series. I can’t wait to read them and look forward to the next. Am homebound and this is made possible by my dear friend Joan who goes to the library every week for me. I’m doubly blessed.

    What is the time line for the period of the setting of the Mitford books?

      If you mean in what era are they set, it’s never specified, but it is the present at the time of the writing. So the first ones are in the 1990s of so, and they advance from there.
