Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Father Tim and Cynthia have been at home in Mitford for three years since returning from Whitecap Island.

In the little town that's home-away-from-home to millions of readers, life hums along as usual. Dooley looks toward his career as a vet; Joe Ivey and Fancy Skinner fight a haircut price war that takes no prisoners; and Percy steps out on a limb with a risky new menu item at the Main Street Grill.

Though Father Tim dislikes change, he dislikes retirement even more. As he and Cynthia gear up for a year-long ministry across the state line, a series of events sends shock waves through his faith-and the whole town of Mitford.

In her seventh novel in the bestselling Mitford Years series, Jan Karon delivers surprises of every kind, including the return of the man in the attic and an ending that no one in Mitford will ever forget.

Review:

"Although this offering is permeated with Karon's trademark charm, the plot isn't all sweetness and light....There are plenty of fireworks...in this absorbing family drama." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Following the sweet trifle of A Common Life, Karon serves up heartier fare in [this] latest installment....Karon always manages to avoid sentimentality by realistically depicting life's challenges....Loyal fans will eat up the newest Mitford, and readers who may have been growing weary of Father Tim will find refreshment here." Mary Ellen Quinn, Booklist (starred review)

Synopsis:

In her seventh novel in the bestselling Mitford Years series, Jan Karon delivers surprises of every kind, including the return of the man in the attic and an ending that no one in Mitford will ever forget.
