About the Author

Jan Karon, born Janice Meredith Wilson in the foothills of North Carolina, was named after the title of a popular novel, Janice Meredith.Jan wrote her first novel at the age of ten. 'The manuscript was written on Blue Horse notebook paper, and was, for good reason, kept hidden from my sister. When she found it, she discovered the one curse word I had, with pounding heart, included in someone's speech. For Pete's sake, hadn't Rhett Butler used that very same word and gotten away with it? After my grandmother's exceedingly focused reproof, I've written books without cussin' ever since.'Several years ago, Karon left a successful career in advertising to move to the mountain village of Blowing Rock, North Carolina, and write books. 'I stepped out on faith to follow my lifelong dream of being an author,' she says. 'I made real sacrifices and took big risks. But living, it seems to me, is largely about risk.'Enthusiastic booksellers across the country have introduced readers of all ages to Karon's heartwarming books. At Home in Mitford, Karon's first book in the Mitford series, was nominated for an ABBY by the American Booksellers Association in 1996 and again in 1997.

Reviews

"The faster and more impersonal the world becomes, the more we need...Mitford."--The Cleveland Plain Dealer "Karon knits Mitford's small-town characters and multiple storylines into a cozy sweater of a book...4/4 stars."--USA Today "Jan Karon reflects contemporary culture more fully than almost any other living novelist."--Los Angeles Times "Loyal fans of Karon's Mitford novels and Father Tim will be delighted once again to spend time in this quintessential American village with its leading citizen and his colorful coterie of friends, family, and dependent souls."--Booklist "With the homecoming of much-beloved characters and a few new additions, Karon's latest provides a return to a setting readers have been clamoring to revisit. Longtime readers will not be disappointed by the author's latest cozy redemption tale."--Library Journal
