Product Description

Father Tim Kavanagh once again returns to his home in Mitford after five hectic years of retirement in the land of his Irish ancestors. While glad to be back, he feels something is still missing from his life: a pulpit.

For years now, Father Tim believed he had some answers, but now he just has questions. How can he possibly help Dooley's younger brother, Sammy, make it through the fallout of a disastrous childhood? Could doing a good deed for the town bookstore be the best thing for his befuddled spirit? And who is riding through town in a limo? Not Edith Mallory.

Then, when an editorial appears in the weekly Muse it poses the question that sets the whole town out looking for answers: Does Mitford still take care of its own?

Publisher's Description

From the author of the Mitford books including Come Rain or Come Shine:

Welcome back home to Mitford. We’ve been waiting for you…


After five hectic years of retirement from Lord’s Chapel, Father Tim Kavanagh returns with his wife, Cynthia, from the land of his Irish ancestors. While he’s glad to be at home in Mitford, something is definitely missing from his life: a pulpit. But when he’s offered one, he decides he doesn’t want it.

For years, he believed he had a few answers. Now he has questions. How can he possibly help Dooley’s younger brother, Sammy, make it through the fallout of a disasterous childhood? Could doing a good deed for the town bookstore be the best thing for his befuddled spirit? And who was riding through town in a limo? Not Edith Mallory.

Then an editorial in the weekly Muse poses a question that sets the whole town looking for answers: Does Mitford still take care of its own?

Now sit back, relax, and discover why USA Today says Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good "hits the sweet spot at the intersection of your heart and your funny bone."

    I liked the book and loved the series. It had been so long since I read the Mitford series that I had to concentrate on getting back into it. It was an o.k. read. I was glad she continued the series but it has been my least favorite of the books.

    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.

    Have read all of the Mitford series and have enjoyed them all and this one is no exception. Feel as if I'm home again in Mitford and catching up with old friends. Good relaxing read.

    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.
