Item Description...
For the first time in mass-market paperback?the book that brought America's readers to Mitford.

It's easy to feel at home in Mitford. In these high, green hills, the air is pure, the village is charming, and the people are generally lovable. Yet, Father Tim, the bachelor rector, wants something more. Enter a dog the size of a sofa who moves in and won't go away. Add an attractive neighbor who begins wearing a path through the hedge. Now, stir in a lovable but unloved boy, a mystifying jewel theft, and a secret that's sixty years old. Suddenly, Father Tim gets more than he bargained for. And readers get a rich comedy about ordinary people and their ordinary lives.

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?
A heart-warming, upbeat book you don't want to end!  Mar 28, 2007
This book is delightful! It made me laugh, and it made me cry. The characters are memorable and realistic. Mitford is the quiet, picturesque place we'd all like to visit, and Jan Karon has given us a spiritual tonic and a wonderfully uplifting experience.
Reader's Voice  Mar 9, 2007
I am enjoying listening to the CDs. The story is pleasant to listen to and the characters delightful. I grew up in North Carolina and love the small village stories from my own childhood. I think this book is better to read than listen to unless there is a recording that uses a southern voice. No offense intended toward the wonderful reader here - he just does not sound like he comes from North Carolina!!
Wonderful!  Feb 25, 2007
This audio version of Jan Karon's first book is fantastic! The book is one of my favorites. The voice of John McDonough brings these characters to life even more. Mr. McDonough captures the southern appalachian accent beautifully. I highly recommend this book on CD.
Excellent, fun, and inspirational novel...A pure delight to read  Feb 7, 2007
What a wonderful novel this is. Jan Karon has captured small town life and its wonderful citizens in this first novel of the acclaimed series. Being an Episcopalian I was immediately drawn to the life of "Father Tim", Mitford's Episcopal Minister and one of its leading citizens. His humble, honest, and heartfelt life truely inspires all who know and love him. Being an Episcopalian myself, I can relate to, chuckle, and enjoy the insights of the church that he has to deal with. All the characters in the novel are interesting, enjoyable, frustrating, and just plain human (aren't we all?). I look forward to reading the rest of the series and I rate Miss Karon's novel right up there with Fanne Flagg as being one of my favorite authors to read.

Very Highly Recommended!!
