In This Mountain (Mitford Book 7) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
In the little town that’s home-away-from-home to millions of readers, life hums along as usual. Dooley looks toward his career as a vet; Joe Ivey and Fancy Skinner fight a haircut price war that takes no prisoners; and Percy steps out on a limb with a risky new menu item at the Main Street Grill.
Though Father Tim dislikes change, he dislikes retirement even more. As he and Cynthia gear up for a year-long ministry across the state line, a series of events sends shock waves through his faith—and the whole town of Mitford.
“Karon knits Mitford's small-town characters and multiple story lines into a cozy sweater of a book.”—USA Today
“Jan Karon reflects contemporary culture more fully than almost any other living novelist.”—Los Angeles Times
“Welcome home, Mitford fans...to Karon's gift for illuminating the struggles that creep into everyday lives—along with a vividly imagined world.”—People
“Karon offers her readers another chance to escape their own world, if just for a while, and live in the town that ‘takes care of its own.’ Her readers say they wish Mitford existed so they could move there.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch

The book is dark and difficult to read at times, but the joys and triumphs make the novel well worth reading. Jan Karon takes us places we would rather not go and opens our eyes to truth that we would rather not face, but in the end faith, love, and joy triumph. I highly recommend this book!
entertaining that I plan on getting many more of her books after I completed the 9 in this series. She is a writer that makes you feel as though
you are a part of this small but wonderful community. There aren't too many books that will make you laugh out loud with the smallest sweetest
things. I know I will miss Fr. Timothy Kavanaugh and his life with his new wife and old dog. Make sure you real al of them in order. You too will
be in love with this series. Thank you, Jan Karon.
I am so glad Father Tim Kavanaugh and his beloved wife Cynthia are home again in Mitford. I savored each word of this story, took an entire week to finish it because I knew I would be sad to finish it.
This time around, Karon has given herself a real chance to develop a myriad of story lines and let all the delightful characters in Father Tim's life grow into people we'd all like to know....well, with the exception of that wicked witch Edith Mallory!

Will Dooley be reunited with his lost brothers and sisters?

Get this book....turn off the phone and the TV....set aside some time for yourself and travel to the enchanted world created by one of today's most talented, gentle and thoughtful authors. I guarantee you a pleasant trip.
