More About Jan Karon

Jan Karon Born Janice Meredith Wilson in 1937, Jan Karon was raised on a farm near Lenoir, North Carolina. Karon knew at a very early age that she wanted to be a writer. She penned her first novel when she was just 10 years old, the same year she won a shirt-story contest organized by the local highschool.

Karon married as a teenager and hand a daughter, Candace. At 18, Karon began working as a receptionist for a Charlotte, N.C. advertising agency. She advanced in the company after leaving samples of her writing on the desk of her boss, who eventually noticed her talent. Karon went on to have a highly successful career in the field, winning awards for ad agencies from Charlotte to San Francisco. In time, she became a creative vice president at the high-profile McKinney & Silver, in Raleigh. Wile there she won the prestigious Stephen Kelly Award, with which the Magazine Publishers of America honor the year's best print campaign.

During her hears in advertising, Karon kept alive her childhood ambition to be an author. At the age of 50 she left her career in advertising and moved to Blowing Rock, North Carolina, to pursue that dream. After struggling - and failing - to get a novel underway, Karon awoke one night with a mental image of an Episcopal priest walking down a village street. She grew curious about him, and started writing. Soon, Karon was publishing weekly installments about Father Tim in her local newspaper, the The Blowing Rocket, which saw its circulation double as a result. "It certainly worked for Mr. Dickens", says Karon.

The Father Tim stories became Karon's first Mitford novel, At Home in Mitford. The book has since been nominated three times for an ABBY (American Booksellers Book Of the Year Award), which honors titles that bookstore owners most enjoy recommending to customers. The fourth Mitford novel, A New Song, won both the Christy and Gold Medallion awards for outstanding contemporary fiction in 2000. A Common Life, In This Mountain, and Shepherd's Abiding have also won Gold Medallion awards. Out to Canaan was the first Mitford novel to hit the New York Times bestseller list, subsequent novels have debuted on the New York Times list, often landing the #1 spot.

Karon says her character-driven work seeks to give readers a large, extended family they can call their own.

Jan Karon currently resides in Blowing Rock, in the state of North Carolina. Jan Karon was born in 1937.

Reviews - What do customers think about These High, Green Hills (The Mitford Years, Book 3)?

Jan  May 13, 2008
Jan Karon books are GREAT. You get the feeling you know the people personally.
These High Green Hills  Feb 8, 2008

New adventures in living from the author of the fabled Mitford series.
When I read the first book from Jan Karon, I wanted to pack my bags and move to Mitford. I'm so happy Father Tim lives on in her new series beginning with These High Green Hills. I just she could write as fast as I can read.
Praiseworthy & Full of Verdure  Feb 1, 2008
Having just finished this third installment of the boxed set, I offer the following assessment: First, I usually avoid revealing plots or nuggets about the books I read for reviews and so I'll just stick with generalities here. With some humor, the author paints her unforgettable characters with verve in this book. Anyone with a warm heart will take delight in this most interesting tale down in the Carolina lands. Blockbuster entertainment? You can bet on it. Breathtaking action? Bet on that too! With a beneficent flair, the author narrates this story with depth of meaning and so much liveliness of expressions. Not to be sarcastic but, this book would be most beneficial, if not thought-provoking to Darwinists. In closing, I'd like to say BRAVO to Jan, for she delivers wholesome and vibrant outlooks on life. All of her books are graced with high value. The Den of IniquityAt Home in Mitford (The Mitford Years, Book 1)Home to Holly Springs (Father Tim, Book 1)

I love this series and would hope everyone would read it. It is how life should be.
Third in the series  Apr 16, 2007
Cynic that I am, I do not usually like any book that could be described as "heartwarming," and this book has been described with that adjective. So why am I not giving it a review of only one star? Because despite myself I enjoyed the book. I know it is manipulative in the extreme. I realize that Ms. Karon stacks the cards to make everything come out well--e.g. when Father Tim and wife are lost in the cave and rescued before they suffer more than mild thirst. The whole thing is akin to the old western movies where the sandy streets are filled with horses but there is no horse manure--ever. Mitford just doesn't have any hardcore villains, no real crime, no manure. When people curse, we don't actually hear the words. It is, in effect, Pleasantville.

The fact is, this and the first two installment are not novels at all by any strict definition. There is no real plot that works throughout. Rather, there are mostly minor incidents that soon get resolved or are left over for the next book. Oh, people die and babies are born and there are marriages. But nothing of real moment happens outside the pale. Jeopardy does not enter into this little mountain town.

I must admit that I am troubled at times by the theological intrusions. These seem to increase with each book so far. Father Tim, the central character, is an Episcopal priest, so religion is unavoidable within the narrative. Alexander Pope, the 18th century English poet, warned us to beware of anyone with only one book, be it the Koran or Bible or Catcher in the Rye. Not every solution or measure or value can be found in one work. And not all of Father Tim's solutions are found in one book--or so it seems to me.

But it is comfortable for a reader to go to Mitford for a few hours, and in the final analysis, the real reason we read is to enjoy, to escape, as it were. Mitford is an escape from the more trying events of the real world. I'm now on the fourth installment of the Mitford books with five more to go. I look forward to the trip.
