To Be Where You Are Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
A New York Times Best Seller
Number one New York Times best-selling author Jan Karon returns with the 14th novel in the beloved Mitford series, featuring three generations of Kavanaghs. Wounds heal, bonds grow stronger, and celebrations continue.... Welcome back to beloved Mitford.
After 12 years of wrestling with the conflicts of retirement, Father Tim Kavanagh realizes he doesn't need a steady job to prove himself. Then he's given one. As for what it proves, heaven only knows.
Millions of Karon fans will be thrilled that it's life as usual in the wildly popular Mitford series: A beloved town character lands a front-page obituary, but who was it, exactly, who died? And what about the former mayor, born the year Lindbergh landed in Paris, who's still running for office? All this, of course, is but a feather on the wind compared to Muse editor J.C. Hogan's desperate attempts to find a cure for his marital woes. Will it be high-def TV or his pork-chop marinade?
In fiction, as in real life, there are no guarantees.
Twenty minutes from Mitford at Meadowgate Farm, newlyweds Dooley and Lace Kavanagh face a crisis that devastates their bank account and impacts their family vet practice. But there is still a lot to celebrate, as their adopted son, Jack, looks forward to the most important day of his life - with great cooking, country music, and lots of people who love him. Happily, it will also be a day when the terrible wound in Dooley's biological family begins to heal because of a game - let's just call it a miracle - that breaks all the rules.
In To Be Where You Are, Jan Karon weaves together the richly comic and compelling lives of two Kavanagh families, and a cast of characters that listeners around the world now love like kin.

The one line that Dooley says to Lacey "Love you deep" is something I now say to my children and think that inspired sentence is the crown jewel of the entire book. Having just just re-read one of the the earlier books, this installment is not up to the excellence of her previous offerings.
Seeing old friends from Mitford is so wonderful; saying goodbye to one was so sad. A lot of the townspeople are aging, including Father Tim, but they keep on giving Karon's readers great joy, just hearing from them.
The love in this book just seeps into your soul and fills you completely up! I devoured it in one day! Could NOT tear myself away. I was simply thrilled to be back in Mitford and see everyone again: Father Tim and his dear wife Cynthia (who always smelled faintly of wisteria, Miss Louella, Coot, Mule Skinner, JC Hogan, Avis Packard (dear Avis), all the folks out at Meadowgate. How I love Dooley, Lace and their sweet Jack Tyler!
There is some heartache, true, but there is SO much joy in Mitford. Oh, please, can't I just go live there? If a person could indeed live in a fictional town, it would be Mitford for me. Hands down. No contest. It's like my heart longs to be there. These Mitford books have brought me so much joy and pure spiritual nourishment over the years. I hope Jan Karon never stops writing Mitford books.
