Product Description

After five hectic years of retirement from Lord's Chapel, Father Tim Kavanaugh returns with his wife, Cynthia from a so-called pleasure trip to the land of his Irish ancestors.

While he is glad to be at home in Mitford, something is definitely missing: a pulpit. But when he's offered one, he decides he doesn't want it. Maybe he lost his passion.

His adopted son, Dooley, wrestles with his own passion--for the beautiful and gifted Lace Turner--and his vision to become a successful country vet. Dooley's brother Sammy, still enraged by his mother's abandonment, destroys one of Father Tim's prized possessions. And Hope Murphy, owner of Happy Endings Bookstore, struggles with the potential loss of her unborn child and her hard-won business.

All this as Wanda's Feel Good Cafi opens, a romance catches fire through an Internet word game, their former mayor hatches a reelection campaign to throw the bums out, and the weekly Muse poses a probing inquiry: Does Mitford still take care of its own?

Millions of fans will applaud the chance to spend time, once more, in the often comic and utterly human presence of Jan Karon's characters. Indeed, they have never been more sympathetic, bighearted, and engaging.

Endorsements

"Loyal fans of Karon's Mitford novels and Father Tim will be delighted once again to spend time in this quintessential American village with its leading citizen and his colorful coterie of friends, family, and dependent souls." - Booklist

"After a long hiatus, Karon has returned with a novel that offers something for those who believe and those who do not. All the beloved quirky characters are here, the past is neatly summarized and the future, full of hope." - Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Jan Karon's Mitford novels

At Home in Mitford

"For readers yearning for a cozy read, the town created by Karon's fine descriptive style has much to recommend it." - Publishers Weekly

"[In her first book] Jan Karon has peopled Mitford with kind, funny thoughtful men, women and children...[and] creates a soothing, attractive place to be. This isn't a journey but a destination...I hope this is the beginning of a series and that Karon will write many more." - The Denver Post

"The charm of Jan Karon's At Home in Mitford lies in her accounts of ordinary events, the very essence of life, and of neighbors who care for one another...[it] helps us believe that such people and places still exist." - Roanoke Times and World-News

"At Home in Mitford is highly recommended." - Library Journal

A Light in the Window

"Jan Karon offers an antidote for big-city blues. Devotees of gentle fiction will lose themselves in Karon's books, fall in love with Mitford, and desire never to emerge." - Rocky Mountain News

These High, Green Hills

"Karon blends humor with sorrow and grants her characters a healthy dose of heavenly grace to face life's challenges." - Library Journal

"Karon sinks a hook in the reader and gently tugs, propelling the plot on a very sweet journey." - Indianapolis Star

"Karon tilts an appreciative ear to mountain-wry with and vernacular....These High, Green Hills is everything that, in the wee hours of the night, you like a book to be, warm-hearted and funny, with a hero marked by the profound inner strength it takes for him to be naive with his eyes open." - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"There is something about Karon's writing style which suits it to rocking chairs on the front porch on warm evenings....These High, Green Hills is the best [Mitford book yet]. That's high praise indeed." - Morganton News Herald

Out to Canaan

"Jan Karon reflects contemporary culture more fully than almost any other living novelist." - Los Angeles Times

"The faster and more impersonal the world becomes, the more we need a Mitford." - Cleveland Plain Dealer

"After you've spent time in Mitford, you'll never want to come back." - Chicago Tribune

    Don't get me wrong, It's an OK read. I'm a huge fan of Jan Karon. I even grew up in the Blowing Rock area of which these books are centered. I also dream of being there while reading BUT..... I just kept reading this one thinking, surely it will get better. It never did. I was disappointed.

    Felt like I would have missed something if I hadn't finished the series but it didn't keep my interest as much as previous books did. Did tie up a lot of loose ends but left me wondering about the brother.
