In the Company of Others | [Jan Karon]

In the Company of Others

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.

Publisher's Summary

Jan Karon's new series, launched with her New York Times best-selling Home to Holly Springs, thrilled legions of Mitford devotees, and also attracted a whole new set of fans. "Lovely," said USA Today. "Rejoice!" said The Washington Post.

In this second novel, 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.

In the Company of Others is a moving testament to the desperate struggle to hide the truth at any cost and the powerful need to confess. Of all her winning novels, Jan Karon says this "dark-haired child" is her favorite - a sentiment listeners everywhere are certain to share.

    "The greatest series ever"

    The Midford series and it's spin-offs are the best books I have ever read. Good, clean entertaining reads.

    "Always the best"

    In The Company Of Others is an inspiring book written by Jan Karon. It is part of the Mitford series and, like all the others in this series is a joy to read or listen to. The author's writing skills are top notch and her creation of the town of Mitford and all its wonderful inhabitants a real blessing.

    Please, Jan Karon, keep up the good work.

    "I Suprememly Enjoyed!"

    I just realized that this book had yet another reader, not the same as the first in this series (as I had original thought), but perfect for the job! I have not found another book by Jan Karon after this one, which dulls my heart some since I have yet to find another author whose fictional writing not only delights one's very senses, but instructs for life!

    I am reading the series for the third time - and not bored in the least! I receive something new each time.

    Story
    "Erik Singer"

    Erik Singer had a fine voice for the Irish characters. His voice was too young for Father Tim, who is 70 in this book. It was often hard to tell the characters' voices apart. Why oh why can't audible pay for both men's and women's voices in books? The story was a fun read and, as usual, a bit preachy at times, but I still like the Father Tim stories.

    "Helter-Skelter"

    As a true lover o f the Mitford series I was greatly disappointed with this Jan Karon Novel. It fell short. Previous works allowed you to become part of the cast of characters this did not. Maybe it was the use of brogue or the helter-skelter of scenes and locations. Although I tried, I could not become one with this book.

    "Not so good"

    Loved the other Mitford books. This one falls far short. More preachy than the others, not filled with fun interesting characters like the others, and the reader was awful. I forced myself to finish it.

    "Father Tim's adventures in Ireland"

    Really enjoyed listening to the reader with Irish accent and expressions. Father Tim is a pleasant, devout man, and he really gets involved with the people in the inn.

    "disappointed"

    I agree with others who ask for the first narrator, John McDonough. He had the characters down and it is difficult to try to readjust the brain to a new voice. I also found the story line a bit difficult to follow as the characters would change back and forth from past to present and I was often not sure exactly who they were talking about and who was related to who! I hope the next book takes us back to Mitford and all of the hometown people.

    "BORING!"

    How could the previous reviewer possibly state "wonderful, enjoyable, heart warming- a must!" I barely got through half of this book.
