    Father Tim and Cynthia arrive in the west of Ireland, intent on researching his Kavanagh ancestry from the comfort of a charming fishing lodge. The charm, however, is broken entirely when Cynthia startles a burglar and sprains her already injured ankle. Then a cherished and valuable painting is stolen from the lodge owners, and Cynthia's pain pales in comparison to the wound at the center of this bitterly estranged Irish family.

    R. Jones says: "Good as ever, but...."
    "I highly recommend J. Karon's wonderful new book!"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of In the Company of Others to be better than the print version?

    Yes, because the dialect is spot on; it's absolutely amazing how one narrator can vocalize so many different characters! His rendition plants you right in the middle of all the happenings of Father Tim and his wife, Cynthia, with eloquence and charm.


    What did you like best about this story?

    If you have any Irish blood in you at all, you'll especially love this story! It has humor, pathos, adventure, and a plot that makes you want to keep reading. In addition, if you are a Jan Karon fan, you will not be disappointed! You'll wonder when her next saga will be ready.


    What does Erik Singer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This man is unusually adept at nailing not only dialect, but sound quality, inflection, intonation, and nuance so that, even though there are many characters, the reader knows who is speaking. He makes the story come alive, and you feel what each character is experiencing.


    Who was the most memorable character of In the Company of Others and why?

    Of course, Father Tim. You see the whole landscape and charm of the country and characters through his eyes. Karon's dialogue among characters is fascinating and truly meaningful. There are life lessons in there somewhere!


    Any additional comments?

    I just can't wait until Jan Karon finishes her next book in the Father Tim series.
