Father Timothy kavanagh has been asked to "come up higher" more than once. He did, after all, raise a thrown-away boy, adopt a dog the size of a Buick, and recite his wedding vows at the tender age of sixtysomething. But he's never been asked to do the impossible. While farm-sitting with Cynthia outside Mitford, the retired Episcopal priest is charged with the revival of Holy Trinity, a mountain church tha's been closed for forty years. His bishop's further mandate : "Get it up and running, ASAP!" Fortunately, like Daniel, he's been given an angel (albeit one with an unlikely talent for barbering). Though challenged and often doubtful, Father Tim's soul lifts up as he gathers the flock that dwells "above the clouds."
