After five hectic years of retirement from Lord's Chapel, Father Tim Kavanagh returns with his wife from a so-called pleasure trip to the land of his Irish ancestors. While glad to be at home in Mitford, something is definitely missing: a pulpit. But when he's offered one, he doesn't want it. Maybe he's lost his passion. Meanwhile, the other townsfolk face their own troubles. Millions of fans will applaud the chance to spend time in the often comic and utterly human presence of Jan Karon's characters. Indeed, they have never been more sympathetic, bighearted and engaging.

About the Author
