Item Description...
2000 GOLD MEDALLION WINNER In A New Song, Mitford's longtime Episcopal priest, Father Tim, retires. However, new challenges and adventures await when he agrees to serve as interim minister of a small church on Whitecap Island. He and his wife, Cynthia, soon find that Whitecap has its own unforgettable characters: a church organist with a mysterious past, a lovelorn bachelor placing personal ads, a mother battling paralyzing depression. They also find that Mitford is never far away when circumstances "back home" keep their phone ringing off the hook. In this fifth novel of the beloved series, fans old and new will discover that a trip to Mitford and Whitecap is twice as good for the soul.

More About Jan Karon

Jan Karon Born Janice Meredith Wilson in 1937, Jan Karon was raised on a farm near Lenoir, North Carolina. Karon knew at a very early age that she wanted to be a writer. She penned her first novel when she was just 10 years old, the same year she won a shirt-story contest organized by the local highschool.

Karon married as a teenager and hand a daughter, Candace. At 18, Karon began working as a receptionist for a Charlotte, N.C. advertising agency. She advanced in the company after leaving samples of her writing on the desk of her boss, who eventually noticed her talent. Karon went on to have a highly successful career in the field, winning awards for ad agencies from Charlotte to San Francisco. In time, she became a creative vice president at the high-profile McKinney & Silver, in Raleigh. Wile there she won the prestigious Stephen Kelly Award, with which the Magazine Publishers of America honor the year's best print campaign.

During her hears in advertising, Karon kept alive her childhood ambition to be an author. At the age of 50 she left her career in advertising and moved to Blowing Rock, North Carolina, to pursue that dream. After struggling - and failing - to get a novel underway, Karon awoke one night with a mental image of an Episcopal priest walking down a village street. She grew curious about him, and started writing. Soon, Karon was publishing weekly installments about Father Tim in her local newspaper, the The Blowing Rocket, which saw its circulation double as a result. "It certainly worked for Mr. Dickens", says Karon.

The Father Tim stories became Karon's first Mitford novel, At Home in Mitford. The book has since been nominated three times for an ABBY (American Booksellers Book Of the Year Award), which honors titles that bookstore owners most enjoy recommending to customers. The fourth Mitford novel, A New Song, won both the Christy and Gold Medallion awards for outstanding contemporary fiction in 2000. A Common Life, In This Mountain, and Shepherd's Abiding have also won Gold Medallion awards. Out to Canaan was the first Mitford novel to hit the New York Times bestseller list, subsequent novels have debuted on the New York Times list, often landing the #1 spot.

Karon says her character-driven work seeks to give readers a large, extended family they can call their own.

Jan Karon currently resides in Blowing Rock, in the state of North Carolina. Jan Karon was born in 1937.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Typical !  May 2, 2008
Typical for Karon, this book seems to force me to go to the store and buy the next one.Unfortunately, I read much faster than she writes.
Beloved Mitford Series  Nov 8, 2007
Most wonderful fiction series I've read in many years! I love Jan Karon's Mitford Season, and can't wait until the next ones come out. The characters have become so real to me, I feel like I've known them all my life. I am an avid reader and truly dread coming to the end of each of these books. It's hard to find good Christian fiction, which are loved even by those who do not usually read Christian literature, but these fit the bill! I give them for gifts to many.
9 Book Series  Oct 28, 2007
Did not want to end this series of 9 books! So delighted to know author has more stories to come with same main character!
A New Song (The Mitfored Years, #5)  Aug 7, 2007
The entire Mitford series experience can be compared to receiving a warm, loving embrace from your most treasured friend! The pages welcome you into an interesting, pleasant world, where solid Christian values are forefront and modern-day filth and profanity are refreshingly absent! The reader will come to love and care about Father Tim, Dooley, all the towns' people - even busybody Emma! Each book in the series welcomes you into the world of Mitford and invites you to stay as long as you can, with hospitality true to it's southern roots! I wish I lived in Mitford!
A wrong move  May 12, 2007
Father Tim's move out of Mitford was an unfortunate event for both him and Ms. Mitford. Somehow the little island on North Carolina's Outer Banks just doesn't have the same quality of air. In addition, there are a couple of other sub plots that I find less than convincing.

Near Father Tim's island residence is the mansion of a recluse who plays a mean organ and who suffers from tourette's syndrome, an incurable mental problem that is embarrassing to him. He has all sorts of tics and blurts out words he doesn't really mean. People with this problem often blurt obscenities, but not in a Karon book. My problem is that after Father Tim prays for him a few times, the recluse is able to leave his house, come to Father Tim's church, and start playing the organ there. It just isn't that simple. If it were, all those who suffer from tourette's could be cured by prayer and before Christmas.

The second problem is with the woman who rented Father Tim's Mitford house while he is away. She is ostensibly a piano teacher, but she has ulterior motives for settling in Mitford. Through an outrageous set of circumstances she accomplishes her mission--I won't give it away, even if it is a silly flaw. Coincidences happen in real life and in fiction, but there are limits, especially in fiction. Charles Dickens' novels are full of coincidences that make a reader groan, but that was the fashion in many Victorian novels. Current literature has gone past that--or should have gone past it.

I realize that a good many readers are addicted to this series, and I can easily understand why. It is a pleasanter world that Father Tim occupies, one with rather facile solutions to minor problems. It is a place where people are generally nice and there are no garbage cans. It is Pleasantville, the colorized version. Alas, Mitford does not exist.
