The first of the Father Tim novels by the bestselling author of "At Home in Mitford, " "Somebody Safe with Somebody Good," and other books in the Mitford Series
Readers of the nine bestselling Mitford novels have been captivated by Jan Karon's gift for illuminating the struggles that creep into everyday lives "along with a vividly imagined world" ("People").

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?
Much too long. Could have been said in half the number of pages  Nov 30, 2008
Very disappointed in this book. I have been a Karon fan since her first book and think this is the first time I
almost didn't finish the book. The last part was ok but much too much dialogue that was not interesting enough
to hold my interest for very long. I think it is time to go back to Mitford where the people are interesting and
sometimes funny but seem true to life. Guess I will have to end my review by saying 'BORING' for the most
Book  Nov 19, 2008
Book arrived within 3 days of my order. Am giving it as a gift, so haven't read it.
Disappointing  Nov 19, 2008
I loved the first four Mitford series books. However, I have to believe that this book is written by a different author. The writing style is amateur and difficult to follow. I found this book to be extremely aggravating. I was constantly trying to figure out who was speaking in the dialog and who was who. For example, there are TWO Peggys. Couldn't the author have simplified things by creating a different name? Flashbacks are poorly delineated leaving the reader to sort out orientation in time. Finally, the constant attempt at writing dialog in a dialect is tiring and poorly executed. I was so irritated by the book, that I was compelled to write this review; and I never take the time to write a review. I'd be very surprised if this is truly Jan Karon's work. Usually her writing is clear and inviting. This one missed by a long shot.
Homecoming Surprise For Father Tim  Nov 18, 2008
After waiting 38 years to return to his hometown of Holly Springs our beloved Father Tim finally makes it back home. You'll never guess the twists & surprises in store for him & for you the reader as you go along for the ride with Father Tim & Barnabas in the red Mustang convertible. You'll feel the wind in your hair, the Mississippi heat, & hear the pounding of Father Tim's heart as he hears the truth about his family & finds more people to love. I won't spoil the surprise; just read it for yourself, you won't be disappointed!
Home To Holly Springs  Oct 21, 2008
Another well written story from Jan Karon. I am always caught up in Fr. Tim's life when I read Ms. Karon's stories. As I friend of mine said after reading "The Mitford Series", "I'm dreaming in sentences". The characters of Holly Springs have life in the words of this book. The insights into our emotions and make-up are right on. The conclusions are life changing.
