Product description

From Amazon

Father Tim Kavanagh and his wife, Cynthia, return from Whitecap Island to "the little town with the big heart" in Jan Karon's seventh novel in the bestselling Mitford series, In This Mountain. Retirement holds challenges Father Tim hasn't anticipated, and even as Cynthia's career as a children's book author and illustrator brings her new accolades, he finds himself dogged by health troubles and dissatisfaction with the way his life is turning out. However, the beloved villagers of Mitford are on hand to offer support and humor through every crisis, and a few new characters are introduced to keep interest in the series fresh. Throughout the tale, Karon folds in themes of grace and forgiveness, and offers hope for even the most difficult situations. Fans will be delighted to find that this installment of the series is full of the engaging descriptions and charming depiction of life in Mitford that first won Karon the loyalty of legions of readers. --Cindy Crosby --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

Fans of Mitford, N.C., will rejoice over this anticipatedfull-length seventh installment in the bestselling series, especiallythose disappointed with its shorter, rather lightweight predecessor, ACommon Life. Although this offering is permeated with Karon'strademark charm, the plot isn't all sweetness and light. Three yearshave passed since Father Tim Kavanagh and his wife, Cynthia, returnedto Mitford from Whitecap Island, and depression and discontent aregnawing away at the good cleric as he faces the big "7-0." AsCynthia's career reaches new heights, Father Tim makes some personaldecisions that lead to tragedy. But never fear - although Karonstrikes some somber notes, she avoids becoming heavy-handed. Devotedreaders will find the same appealing characters and enchanting writingthat originally won them to the series. edith Mallory is up to her oldtricks, plotting her seduction of Father Tim, and haircut wars arefought between barber Joe Ivey and stylist Fancy Skinner. Convictedjewel thief George Gaynor returns to the series after his release fromjail; something new is cooking down at the Main Street Grill; andDooley Barlowe learns the ropes of romance even as he agonizes over asearch that may turn up his lost father and brothers. Karon more fullyfleshes out two of the series' minor characters, Helene Pringle andHope Winchester, and introduces newcomer Millie Tipton, awise-cracking Methodist preacher who fits comfortably into townlife. Homespun dialogue, fresh and lively descriptions, laugh-out-loudmoments and poignant scenes mark the heartfelt book, which is a happyreunion for Mitford devotees.
