Another Mitford Lover1 Stars Out Of 5To Be Where You AreDecember 10, 2017Another Mitford LoverQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I wholeheartedly agree with the review of To Be Where You Are by "The Avid Reader" from Dunedin, FL. As much as I have always loved reading Jan Karon's Mitford series, I was very disappointed in this latest novel. As The Avid Reader pointed out it was extremely difficult to follow what character Ms. Karon was writing about since the characters changed consistently and many times without being identified sometimes even for several chapters. There were actually times I did not even know who she was writing about. I found the constant changing from one character to another very confusing. I also agree that Ms. Karen should have focused on the main characters of Father Tim, Cynthia, Dooley and Lace. The chapters regarding those characters were delightful as usual.

Father Tim is surprised when he receives a call that Esther Bolick has passed away. He is asked to return to Lords Chapel to give her eulogy. Dooley and Lacy Kavanagh have an unexpected expense when the pipes burst at Kavanagh Animal Wellness Clinic. Lacy has an opportunity to earn the money needed, but it would mean going away for a couple of months. Would it hinder the completion of Jack Tylers adoption? Life is always busy and full in Mitford. Come along for a visit and catch up with all your favorite characters.
Let me start by saying I have been a fan of the Mitford series since the beginning. But I have noticed a difference in Jan Karons writing style in the last two books. To Be Where You Are is my least favorite book in this series. It was all over the places. I wish Ms. Karon had kept the focus of the story on Father Tim, Cynthia, Dooley, and Lacy. Every other chapter was on a different character. You would just settle in to one persons story and it would change to someone else. You then have to figure out which character it has jumped to and remember what happened to them five or so chapters ago. You just start to figure it out, then its a new chapter and you have to start all over again. It lacked the flow that was present in the earlier books in the series. It was just about impossible to keep track of all the various characters and what was happening to each of them. I do not recommend reading this book as a standalone. You need to read the books in order. My rating for To Be Where You Are is 3 out of 5 stars (it was okay). This story failed to capture and hold my attention.

Was introduced to Mitford by my mother-in-law a few years ago and have enjoyed reading the series. Can relate in so many ways. Found myself laughing out loud at some of the situations.
Michelle5 Stars Out Of 5Mitford, Years Later, Just as You RememberedOctober 24, 2017MichelleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5To Be Where You Are by Jan Karon brings readers back to the delightful town of Mitford. The same cast of characters is much more advanced in age, but no less quirky and lovable. For longtime fans of the Mitford series, this book will feel like coming home. And you will not be disappointed! Although years have passed for the characters, or for the reader since having first read the series, you will be able to quickly pick up on the characters lives. I was delighted to find the characters and their lives to be developed in a manner so consistent with their personalities. I highly recommend this book to all Mitford fans and to anyone who enjoys lovable characters and small town charm. I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
