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. Bookstore owner, Shirley Sprinkle, says, "The Mitford Books have been our all-time fiction bestsellers since we went in business twenty-five years ago. We've sold 10,000 of Jan's books and don't see any end to the Mitford phenomenon."

From AudioFile:

Even listeners unfamiliar with Karon's Mitford series will enjoy this story of Father Tim Kavanaugh's visit to his hometown of Holly Springs. Here he hopes to reconcile himself with the memories of his past. Scott Sowers's gentle performance of Father Tim portrays him as a humble man of good humor. The story's transitions from the present to childhood memories are done with ease as Sowers voices the youthful Kavanaugh. As Father Tim searches for people from his past, he makes several new friends, and Sowers renders them all with enthusiasm. Sowers delivers just the right amount of tension as Father Tim's search leads him to confront a painful truth that will have a major impact on his future. K.M.D. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
