In This Mountain (The Mitford Years) Audio CD – Audiobook, May 27, 2002
|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.
In her seventh novel in the bestselling Mitford Years series, Jan Karon delivers surprises of every kind, including the return of the man in the attic and an ending that no one in Mitford will ever forget
"A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens
Ebenezer Scrooge has no time for the poor or the wretched. And it’s “Bah, humbug!” to anyone who wishes him a Merry Christmas. But when he turns in for the night one cold, fateful Christmas Eve, his past, present, and future converge. | Learn more

About the Author
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."

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 Father Tim enter the hi-tech world and get a computer so he can finish his planned book of essays?
Will Dooley be reunited with his lost brothers and sisters?
Will Father Tim survive his crisis of faith?
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.
