Publisher's Summary

His attractive neighbor is tugging at his heart-strings. A wealthy widow is pursuing him with hot casseroles. And his red-haired Cousin Meg has moved into the rectory, uninvited.

As you can see, Mitford's rector and lifelong bachelor, Father Tim, is in need of divine intervention. In this beautifully crafted second novel in the Mitford series, Jan Karon delivers a love story that's both heartwarming and hilarious. Only time will tell if the village parson can practice what he preaches.

In A Light in the Window, you will find an affirmation of what some of us already know: Life in a small town is rarely quiet. And absolutely never boring.

Don't miss out on the rest of Father Tim's adventures in Mitford.

    Another pleasure from Jan Karon and John McDonough. Positive, human, silly, and fun. All about finding your family all around you and trying to bloom where you are planted.

    "I love Mitford and Fr. Tim"

    This is book two in the Mitford series and I just can't get enough. If this were a real town I would definitely want to live there.

    "A Must Read Series"

    I love all of Jan Karon's books in this series. I have read all of then at least 3 times and listened to them on audio once or twice. Heaven will be just like Mitford- with out the pain of course. Perfection

    "Charming!"

    After more than a year away, it was a pleasure to return and visit Father Tim and his friends. After an action thriller and a political biography, the charming village that Karon has created was refreshing. I will certainly buy the next installment.

    Story
    "Fantastic story, excellant narration"
    Where does A Light in the Window rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best audiobooks I have listened to since I joined Audible. Of course, the story is one of the best I have read in many years. Jan Karon, the author, has a way of writing that lets you step into the lives of the people of Mitford. I feel that I would recognize any of the characters if I met them on the street. This is a "slice of life" type story where you step into the lives of the characters and follow them through the months and / or years. Every character is vividly drawn.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Light in the Window?

    I think that my favorite moments include Father Tim's first meeting with Dooley Barlow, the time spent with Miss Sadie, and his introduction to Puny.


    What about John McDonough’s performance did you like?

    John McDonough was able to narrate the story in such a way that you can enter the world of the story and forget the narrator. John's use of the native idioms and accents was right on.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Come enter the world of Mitford . . . you will never want to leave!


    Any additional comments?

    I am really looking forward to listening to the rest of the series. I read these books years ago and have been wanting to reread them for quite a while but have just been too busy. Audible provided the perfect way for me to do both.

    "Extremely Entertaining"
    Where does A Light in the Window rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best I've experienced.


    What other book might you compare A Light in the Window to and why?

    At Home In Mitford - same actor - brings the story alive.


    What about John McDonough’s performance did you like?

    He does so well with the different characters - he seems to actually take on their personalities and matches it with a voice that is so aunthentic. He is unbelievable and I will look for more of his work.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I'm not sure I could actually narrow it down to one but I think Father Tim's encounters with Edith Mallory are right up there with the unique voice and personality of Dooley Barlow.


    Any additional comments?

    I am so entertained by this and cannot wait to buy the next book in the series to listen to. It will be at the top of my Christmas list this year.
