Publisher's Summary

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 best-selling 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.

    Mary in Palos Verdes 15 year listener of audio books because I don't have time to sit down and read and many many times the narrator enhances the story.

    "Top Of The List"

    I love the Mitford series by Jan Karon, it's a sweet Christian series that makes you feel good(Although the many characters are Christians, they are not portrayed as perfect--they have all of our common foibles which are funny and very recognizable). The narrator, John McDonough does an absolutely perfect job. I have enjoyed all of the books in the series. I have read about half of them and listened to half. This is one of those books that is preferred as an audible book. This is my first review and I couldn't reccommend a series more highly. I can't wait until Audible has them all! it's the kind of book (series) you can listen to and enjoy over and over.

    "Don't Leave Home Without it."

    Another of the great Jan Karon's At Home in Mitford series. Characters come to life in each book and you can not wait to hear what happens in the next installment. We travel with them in the car. We never get inpatient or annoyed over construction or other hold up on the road as we are happily enjoying life in Mitford. This is a series the whole family can enjoy and wrap their conversations around. No sex, violence or bad language. Warning for very small children is it about life and sometimes bad things happen to good people, but the author always teaches us a valuable lesson we can carry to our lives.

    "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

    I have a half hour commute to work each way. I love listening to audiobooks on the drive. It makes me look forward to the commute!

    "Down in Mitford"

    I love Jan Karon's books, especially the Mitford series. The characters have become like old friends. The sense of wit and charm are welcomed and sometimes surprising. This particular novel in the series is a little more "down" that I have come to expect. More worries, sadness, and troubles. I am coming near the end of the series and am going to have to choose a time when I'm not driving to listen to "A Light from Heaven" as I'm sure it will bring tears

    Story
    "Father Tim's retirement problems."
    If you could sum up In This Mountain in three words, what would they be?

    The is a story of best laid plans that go haywire. So many unexpected things happen you won't want to put it down.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Father Tim is always my favorite character. The way his brain works overtime is so comforting. I love the Scripture he quotes.


    Have you listened to any of John McDonough’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to Mr. McDonough narrate many books. He always puts on a fine performance and I enjoy listening to him


    If you could take any character from In This Mountain out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Luellen. I love to listen to her stories about dear Miss Sadie.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a wonderful setiers. How I would love a follow up to tie all loose ends together.

    "The Mountain Top"

    The folks in Mitford have become like family to me. These books take me to a place that is so warm and comforting. I am so sorry the series has ended. I know I will listen to these books again and again. What a refreshing change from murder and sex, and etc................
