Publisher's Description

Another stirring page-turner about Father Tim—this time set in County Sligo—from the bestselling author of At Home in Mitford, Somebody Safe with Somebody Good, and other books in the Mitford Series

Jan Karon's new Father Tim series, launched with her New York Times bestselling Home to Holly Springs, thrilled legions of Mitford devotees, and also attracted a whole new set of readers. "Lovely," said USA Today. "Rejoice!" said The Washington Post.

In this second installment in the series, Father Tim and Cynthia arrive in the west of Ireland, intent on researching his Kavanagh ancestry from the comfort of a charming fishing lodge. The charm, however, is broken entirely when Cynthia startles a burglar and sprains her already-injured ankle. Then a cherished and valuable painting is stolen from the lodge owners, and Cynthia's pain pales in comparison to the wound at the center of this bitterly estranged Irish family.

In the Company of Others is a moving testament to the desperate struggle to hide the truth at any cost and the powerful need to confess. Of all her winning novels, Jan Karon says this "dark-haired child" is her favorite.

    This book was another totally different reading experience about Father Tim and Cynthia. Not much about Mitford, other than Emma Newland's emails which I thoroughly enjoyed. Ms. Karon's wit and sense of humour are what kept me going throughout all the Mitford series. Her love of animals is so evident and her wisdom in dealing with children has just shone through them all. However, this book brought many new characters to light and the incredible amount of detail, whether about scenery or people, made it seem like you were there. I enjoyed following the Doctor's journal and was glad that they visited the graves of people mentioned in it. It is sometimes hard to remember that these are works of fiction, they seem so real. I loved the local scenery and the vernacular of the people we met. I do appreciate the fact that she gives so much appreciation to those who have helped her in her research and writing. We know that any book is a team effort but she is so willing to share the credit. Great book and worth re-reading, time and again.

    not an easy put down, pick up frequently kind of book to delve into. Read it because the first Father Tim was a good book.

    Father Tim Series Continues with a Trip to Ireland, the Past

    By Lauren Yarger

    Father Tim Kavanagh and his wife Cynthia take a long-anticipated trip to the land of Tim's ancestors in Ireland, but hopes of spending a relaxing vacation reading poetry and scripture while catching up with relatives soon are dashed by an injury, an art theft and discoveries in an old journal in Jan Karon's latest, "In the Company of Others" (Penguin Group, 2010).

    Readers of Karon's Mitford series books won't be surprised that Tim finds himself immersed in the lives of the people at the quaint lodge where they stay. There's an ancient rivalry, a love that can't be and a bunch of folks who need help reaching out to each other - all right up the alley of the retired Episcopal priest. When Cynthia sprains an ankle and is confined to her bed, Tim has even more time to befriend the townsfolks and help solve the art theft.

    This second in the "Father Tim" series following the successful Mitford series (so-called for the quaint North Carolina town and its inhabitants who come alive in 10 books) has a high calling: to somehow link Father Tim's Mitford past with his new phase of life. The first Father Tim book was excellent, taking the priest, on his own thanks to Cynthia's convenient wayward ankle (it's a break in this one), to his boyhood home in Mississippi where a lot of questions that persisted about Tim and his childhood are answered. It is completely satisfying.

    "In the Company of Others" is the first book with Father Tim out on his own, coming to grips with retirement, and the people of County Sligo village become his new "parishioners." We are introduced to all of the folks involved in the present events and intrigue in and near the lodge, discover the characters and intrigue that used to be around the lodge through long passages from the doctor's old journal and keeep up to date with Mitford through phone calls from son Dooley and emails from Tim's former secretary, Esther. It's a lot of people and situations to absorb, so this book probably isn't a good place to jump in to Tim's life. Start in Mitford.

    The lives of the present and past Irish folks is interesting, but they don't hold a candle to what Tim experiences. I suspect Mitford fans would have been happy to sit with the Kavanaughs in their room gazing out on the countryside while Cynthia painted and Tim read from one of his favorite books of poetry because reading Karon's insights into people, life and God is like spending quality time with an old and trusted friend. Sans a mystery and other people, there wouldn't have been much of a novel for other readers, though..

    Probably the most satisfying subplot involves Tim's reaching out to a lonely, bitter old woman who, spurned by love, makes everyone around her miserable. In typical fashion, we walk along with Tim as he refuses to give in to her moods, won't be discouraged by the defensive wall she has built around herself and consistently offers her friendship to tell her that God and forgiveness are the only way to let go of the past and restore joy in her life.

    Readers had a three-year wait inbetween "Home to Holly Springs" and "In the Company of Others." Here's hoping we'll be treated to the next installment soon.
