About the Author
Jan Karon, born Janice Meredith Wilson in the foothills of North Carolina, was named after the title of a popular novel, Janice Meredith.
Jan wrote her first novel at the age of ten. "The manuscript was written on Blue Horse notebook paper, and was, for good reason, kept hidden from my sister. When she found it, she discovered the one curse word I had, with pounding heart, included in someone's speech. For Pete's sake, hadn't Rhett Butler used that very same word and gotten away with it? After my grandmother's exceedingly focused reproof, I've written books without cussin' ever since."
Several years ago, Karon left a successful career in advertising to move to the mountain village of Blowing Rock, North Carolina, and write books. "I stepped out on faith to follow my lifelong dream of being an author," she says. "I made real sacrifices and took big risks. But living, it seems to me, is largely about risk."
Enthusiastic booksellers across the country have introduced readers of all ages to Karon's heartwarming books. At Home in Mitford, Karon's first book in the Mitford series, was nominated for an ABBY by the American Booksellers Association in 1996 and again in 1997. Bookstore owner, Shirley Sprinkle, says, "The Mitford Books have been our all-time fiction bestsellers since we went in business twenty-five years ago. We've sold 10,000 of Jan's books and don't see any end to the Mitford phenomenon."

I didn't like this book. Jan's other books on the Mitford series were delightful, but this one lacked being interesting. Found it rather boring. Too much bringing another story into this one. I struggled trying to get through it. I almost gave it up, wished that I had.
To those not familiar with the series, "Company" mostly takes place 5,000 miles from Tim and Cynthia's normal haunts, which means the normal cast of Mitfordites are for the most part absent except in the odd overseas phone call or letter. Therefore, don't base base your opinion on the series on this one book alone. It is the exception, rather than the rule.
If you love a good book series, then these Midford books are for you. :)

Take me back to Mitford with all those dear characters - I really don't know what is in Jan Karons mind but its not up to her usual great standard
