Item description for In This Mountain (Mitford Years V7) by Jan Karon...

Overview
Restless with his retirement, Father Tim, accompanied by Cynthia, gears up for a year-long ministry across the state line, but a series of events sends shock waves throughout the town of Mitford and through Father Tim's faith.

Publishers Description

The seventh novel in the beloved Mitford series, by the bestselling author of "At Home in Mitford" and "Somebody Safe with Somebody Good"
Father Tim and Cynthia have been at home in Mitford for three years since returning from Whitecap Island.
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.

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 In This Mountain (Mitford Years V7)?

Gotta love Father Tim!  Mar 23, 2007
For those who have grown to love Mitford, this might disappoint a little in that Father Tim and Cynthia get called to another church on a small coastal island. But Jan Karon does an equally great job of making new and endearing characters for Father Tim to minister to. -- Don't worry, you'll still be kept abreast of what is happening in Mitford!
 
great reading  Jan 16, 2007
Still not up to the first books in her series, but still worth the read.
 
Jan Karon Should Be a National Treasure  Jan 3, 2007
Another wonderful chapter in the Mitford series. I want to move there. The characters are flawed, human, warm, real. They become part of one's life and when you read about them, it's like greeting old friends and catching up with them. So looking forward to the Father Tim series!
 
Mitford Series  Aug 21, 2006
My wife tried for several years to get me to read this series. "Sissy Books", I'd cry. I bless the day when I finally succumbed to her charms and read the books by Jan Karon. I have read them once, retired, and started re-reading them again. I laughed, I shed a few tears (that's hard for a retired police officer to say)and I had some very important lessons in life re-emphasized. I saw in Father Tim a man after God's own heart, and it makes me want to be that kind of man. I highly recommend In This Mountain as well as the entire series.
 
Amazing Author!  May 11, 2006
Jan Karon's Mitford Series is a welcome reprive from today's busy world! Reading her book is like snuggling up with your favorite blanket and a cup of hot chocolate on a snowy night! Once you begin her books... you don't want to put it down. She has a way of writing so that you feel as if you are really there in "Mitford". If you are thinking of purchasing it... you can't go wrong! Go for it!
