Jan Karon, bestselling author, returns with her fourteenth novel in the beloved Mitford series, featuring three generations of Kavanaghs.
Father Tim Kavanagh spent twelve years wrestling with the conflicts of retirement. While he knows he doesn't need a steady job to prove himself, he is given a job anyway. Heaven only knows what it truly proves.
Millions of Karon fans will be overjoyed to return to Mitford and find that it's life as usual. One beloved town character makes a front-page obituary, but who is it? The former mayor, born the year Lindbergh landed in Paris, is still running for office. All this is just a feather on the wind compared to J.C. Hogan, the Muse editor's desperate attempts to find a cure for his marital woes. Will he go with high-def TV or his pork chop marinade?
Fiction imitates real life, in that, 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 readers around the world now love like kin.
