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.
But what caught me here was the fact that even Pastor's can struggle with some discouragment and depression. I have struggled for the last two years with some depression after being moved from one position to another. It has been difficult. Sometimes I wondered where God was.
I like Father Timothy kept opening my Bible looking for the right verse that would speak to my heart. So, as I read this book I totally related.
I would hope that as you read it you will come to understand that Pastors are just as human as everyone else. We deal with the same issues that laypeople deal with.
God is there and is walking with us through every part of our lives. You just might not see him clearly right now. But hold on tight, He is there and He loves you and will help you find the other side of depression and bring you Joy in the morning.
Thank you Jan for writing a truly heart felt book.
