Publisher's Description

Follow Father Tim and Cynthia on their journey to research his Kavanagh ancestry in the Irish countryside.
 
Vacation—the very word has been foreign to Episcopal priest Tim Kavanagh. Now retired from tending his flock in the village of Mitford, he is making good on a promise to show his wife, Cynthia, the charming land of his Irish ancestors. But after arriving at a Lough Arrow fishing lodge in the midst of a torrential downpour, the charm disappears.

They find their holiday upended by an intruder, a treasured painting is stolen from the lodge, and a family conflict dating back nearly a century turns even more bitter. As three generations struggle to find deliverance from the crucifying power of secrets, Tim and Cynthia stumble upon a faded journal that might just explain the crime—and offer a chance at redemption.


From the Hardcover edition.

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."

    I found this book somewhat difficult to read and not as good as Karon's other books in this series

    This review was written for In the Company of Others, Father Tim Series #2.
    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.
