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").

Now, Jan Karon enchants us with the story of the newly retired priest's spur-of-the-moment adventure.

More About Jan Karon, Evelyn Copelman, W. W. Denslow, Shirley Jump, Lori Joy Smith, Gary Hallgren, Becky Freeman & B. Teissier

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?
O Brother, Where Art Thou?  May 21, 2010
If you liked the 9-volume Mitford series, you will love this novel. I have read & re-read all the books in the series several times, but I must agree with USA Today : " Lovely ... This is Karon's most emotionally complex novel." I would add, it is also a multi-faceted gem, providing readers several layers of depth and genre while maintaining its own unique integrity. It is in parts a mystery story, a young boy's coming of age, a tale of self-discovery, a marriage of past and present, a dramatic family history, and several love stories, all skilfully woven together by Karon in a beautiful tapestry of human frailty and divine light.

Jan Karon states in the Dedication that she knew she must..."find the missing pieces of his early life", referring, of course, to Father Tim. She does that and a lot more. The unanswered questions and unexplained riddles of Father Tim's life are here, as are some unexpected revelations from the past. But I will not disclose any spoilers, nor reveal the cryptic meaning of the title of my review. That is for you to discover, while you are discovering the literary joys of this novel. I doubt you will regret the hours you spend in Holly Springs.

P.S. I was privileged to meet the author a few years ago, and her persona is as inspiring as are her books.
Home to Holly Springs  Mar 27, 2010
After reading many of the authors books, this was a bit of a surprise. I enjoyed the story, but at times, hard to follow. I'm looking forward to her next book in the Father Tim series.
Warm and worth the read  Jan 14, 2010
This type of book is quite a ways out of my usual preferences, but I'm glad I read it. Jan Karon's narrative carries you along. Outstanding character development. Read and enjoy.
Excellent condition--as promised!  Dec 29, 2009
Thanks, Vendor,
for an excellent copy of Home to Holly Springs.
Appreciate your fine service.
A Visit with an Old Friend  Dec 16, 2009
By the time I finished the Mitford books, I had kind of overdosed on them. It had been a while since I read them when Home to Holly Springs became available on Bookmooch, so I decided to give it a chance. I'm glad I did. Fr. Tim returns to his boyhood home and interacts with old friends and neighbors as well as some who never met him or his family. He learns about old family secrets and about love. Putting him in a new place with new people allows us to visit our old friend Fr. Tim without feeling like we are reading the same story, only different.

If you enjoyed the Miford books, you should like this one too
