Review Quotes:
Praise for the Mitford Novels

"Karon knits Mitford's small-town characters and multiple story lines into a cozy sweater of a book."-- USA Today

"Jan Karon reflects contemporary culture more fully than almost any other living novelist."-- Los Angeles Times

"Welcome home, Mitford Karon's gift for illuminating the struggles that creep into everyday lives--along with a vividly imagined world."-- People

"Karon offers her readers another chance to escape their own world, if just for a while, and live in the town that 'takes care of its own.' Her readers say they wish Mitford existed so they could move there."-- Richmond Times-Dispatch

Publisher Marketing:
In her seventh inspirational novel in the bestselling Mitford 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.

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.
