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."

From AudioFile

In the ninth novel in Karon's Mitford series, John McDonough is the perfect voice for 60-something Father Timothy Kavanaugh as he revives Holy Trinity, a church closed for four centuries. McDonough reads with a warmth and patience befitting the aging vicar. He also brings color to the sea of rural characters, maintaining a clear personality for each of the parishioners and townsfolk. McDonough exudes the gentleness and slow pace of rural life and is a perfect match for Karon's peaceful though predictable prose. Fans of Karon's work will welcome this next trip to Mitford and the surrounding area, and McDonough ensures that the trip is properly narrated.

1.0 out of 5 stars This item was NOT new, although I ordered a new item.
By Theresa G. on April 5, 2019
The cover looks as though it had had a sticker of some sort on the upper left corner at one point and there was a Chiquita banana sticker stuck on two of the first couple of inside pages.

I would like Amazon to send me a completely new book in place of this one.
