Item Description...
The final volume in the Mitford Years series finds Father Tim contemplating the revival of a remote mountaintop church, a challenge he hopes will be his ultimate calling, but fears will be an impossible task.

Publishers Description
All good thingsA-even laughter and orange marmalade cakeA-must come to an end.

And in Light from Heaven, the long-anticipated final volume in the phenomenally successful Mitford Years series, Karon deftly ties up all the loose ends of Father Timothy KavanaghA's deeply affecting life.

On a century-old valley farm where Father Tim and Cynthia are housesitting, thereA's plenty to say grace over, from the havoc of a windstorm to a surprising new addition to the household and a mystery in the chicken house.

ItA's life on the mountaintop, however, that promises to give Father Tim the definitive challenge of his long priesthood. Can he step up to the plate and revive a remote, long-empty mountain church, asap? Or has he been called to accomplish the impossible? Fortunately, heA's been given an angelA-in the flesh, of course.

Light from Heaven is filled with characters old and new and with answers to all the questions that Karon fans have asked since the series began nearly a decade ago. To put it simplyA-itA's her best. And we believe millions will agree.

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?
Light from Heaven  Jan 30, 2007
A wonderful read. Takes you to a place where there is peace, love and a genuine sense of "family". One MUST read the whole series.
I don't really care to have met Agnes, Clarence, et al  Jan 28, 2007
I waited until the book came out in paperback to finish my collection for my bookshelf and purchased the Bedside Companion at the same time. I have been a Mitford Missionary since I read the first book. Clean, charming, engrossing, enlightening, encouraging, blessing were the adjectives I used. I was grossly disappointed in the last book, like so many others. It seemed as though the characters we all knew and loved were an afterthought. Having read the Bedside Companion, it seems that Ms. Karon felt the need to defend this sad finale by telling us that without it, we never would have met Agnes, Clarence, blah, blah, blah. Did anyone really CARE to meet these people? Did anyone even care about them much AFTER you'd met them? I certainly didn't, based on how many of their names I actually remembered. It all seemed so aimless and rambling. How many pages can it possibly take to tell Father Tim you'd had a child out of wedlock? The language even seemed either stilted or so over-the-top colloquial that it was difficult to digest at times. All the other books were something to look forward to in the evening. This one was a relief to put down.
Light from Heaven  Jan 19, 2007
Wonderful continuation of the Mitford series, too bad this is her last installment, but hey, Father Tim is 70 now... I understand her next series will be about his childhood, interesting to read about his youth after you know how he turns out as an adult. Probably will read this new series as I love how Karon writes.
great reading  Jan 16, 2007
Not as good as the first four books, but still a must to read.
Heavenly Entertaining  Jan 11, 2007
Father Tim is still the glue that holds the town together. This series of books are heart warming and inspirational. As you read the series you will become part of this loving and funny town. The characters seem so real you will feel you have known them all your life. I am sad to know this series had ended, but enlightened to know I can pick up and reread all the books again.
