Father Tim Kavanagh has been asked to "come up higher" more than once. But he's never been asked to do the impossible--until now. The retired Episcopal priest takes on the revival of a mountain church that's been closed for forty years. Meanwhile, in Mitford, he's sent on a hunt for hidden treasure, and two beloved friends are called to come up higher. As Father Tim finds, there are still plenty of heartfelt surprises, dear friends old and new, and the most important lesson of all: It's never too late.
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."
Janus Tuttle5 Stars Out Of 5Still loving this seriesApril 25, 2011Janus TuttleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In my review of Shephers Abiding, I mentioned I have not read In This Mountain as of today. I am on book no. 6 at present and I actually hate to see this series end!!!!! I have the entire seires of nine books. I am already giving it a high rating because I just know it will as wonderful as the others have been. The characters are delightful , Dooley, the boy Father Tim takes into his life and home, I simply love. It is too bad that we all cannot have the wonderful love life that Father Tim is experiencing at age 62!!!!!!!!! Just wonderful and delightful. If I ever have another cat, I am going to name the cat Dooley, I love that boy so much!!!!!!!!! Very, very, good reading!!!!
