Product Description

Enter the world of Jan Karon's writing and you'll soon see why everyone yearns to be At Home in Mitford --everyone except Father Tim, the local rector, who suddenly is not entirely sure. A dog the size of a Buick has followed him home and intends to stay there. A hostile boy is left in his care. But on the upside, an attractive new neighbor is stirring feelings he hasn't felt in years.

Author Bio

Jan Karon, born Janice Meredith Wilson in the foothills of North Carolina, was named after the title of a popular novel, Janice Meredith.

Jan wrote her first novel at the age of ten. "The manuscript was written on Blue Horse notebook paper, and was, for good reason, kept hidden from my sister. When she found it, she discovered the one curse word I had, with pounding heart, included in someone's speech. For Pete's sake, hadn't Rhett Butler used that very same word and gotten away with it? After my grandmother's exceedingly focused reproof, I've written books without cussin' ever since."

Several years ago, Karon left a successful career in advertising to move to the mountain village of Blowing Rock, North Carolina, and write books. "I stepped out on faith to follow my lifelong dream of being an author," she says. "I made real sacrifices and took big risks. But living, it seems to me, is largely about risk."

Enthusiastic booksellers across the country have introduced readers of all ages to Karon's heartwarming books. At Home in Mitford, Karon's first book in the Mitford series, was nominated for an ABBY by the American Booksellers Association in 1996 and again in 1997. Bookstore owner, Shirley Sprinkle, says, "The Mitford Books have been our all-time fiction bestsellers since we went in business twenty-five years ago. We've sold 10,000 of Jan's books and don't see any end to the Mitford phenomenon."

    This review was written for At Home in Mitford: The Mitford Series .
    Every now and then one comes across a story that is so good in the telling, you almost feel like you can see every scene, feel the emotions, hear the sounds and even your tongue salivates at the foods mentioned. The lives of Father Tim, Cynthia, Dooley and the rest is a wonderful read. Every book. So if you are looking to get away from the stress of life for a while ride along with Jan Karon's wonderful story of a small town and it's cast of characters.

    The simple life, oh how we all long for it, in Mitford you will find it. Jan Karon writes with a style similiar to James Herriot in his "All Creatures Great and Small" series. Jan also weaves her Christian faith throughtout the book in a way which is relevant to her reader. Put the kettle on, make some tea, sit down in a cozy chair and become acquainted with the people who live in Mitford.You'll be glad you did.

    I am nearly finished with the Mitford Series, and I will cry when it is finished. They are the very best books I have ever enjoyed. I will do the Father Tim series, which I have previewed. The characters in these books have become like family and best friends. I have giggled out loud, laughed and even cried with the people. I will have to re-read them soon, as they add so much pleasure and spiritual blessings to my life! I wish Jan Karon could continue them on and on!! My sincere thanks to her!!

    I ordered for my 90-year-old mother-in-law because I knew she would appreciate the values expressed and the humor. Finding good reading for an older person can be very, very difficult. I count the Mitford series as a real winner.
