In This Mountain finds Father Tim and Cynthia again living in Mitford, following their stint on Whitecap Island. In the little town that's become America's favorite home-away-from-home, life hums along. Dooley looks toward his career as a vet. Joe Ivey and Fancy Skinner fight a haircut price war that takes no prisoners. Percy steps out on a limb with a risky new menu item at the Grill. Uncle Billy feels new pressure to produce a sure-fire joke and the Man in the Attic returns to Mitford as the town holds its breath to see what happens. Alhough Father Tim dislikes change, he dislikes retirement even more. His wife wins awards, receives bouquets, and gets invited to tour the country. While he stares at a blank page in a proposed book of essays, and fills an occasional pulpit. When he decides to take on a unique and difficult ministry, he feels newly energized. He even begins to think he likes change, until an unexpected event propels him on a painful journey that shakes his faith, his marriage, and the whole town of Mitford. Once again, Jan Karon proves she's "a writer who reflects contemporary culture more fully than almost any living novelist" (Los Angeles Times). As always, she transports us with characters who step off the page and into our hearts, and cheers us with her great sense of fun and magnificent storytelling. So, come home to Mitford. And treat yourself to a rare event in this world: complete satisfaction. - mitfordbooks.com

After twelve years of wrestling with the conflicts of retirement, Father Tim Kavanagh realizes he doesn't need a steady job to prove himself. Then he's given one. As for what it proves, heaven only knows. It's life as usual in Mitford. A beloved town character lands a front-page obituary, but who was it, exactly, who died? And what about the former mayor, born the year Lindbergh landed in Paris, who is still running for office? All this, of course, is but a feather on the wind compared to Muse editor J.C. Hogan's desperate attempts to find a cure for his marital woes. Will it be high-def TV or his pork chop marinade? Twenty minutes from Mitford at Meadowgate Farm, newlyweds Dooley and Lace Kavanagh face a crisis that devastates their bank account and impacts their family vet practice. But there is still a lot to celebrate, as their adopted son, Jack, looks forward to the most important day of his life--with great cooking, country music, and lots of people who love him. Happily, it will also be a day when the terrible wound in Dooley's biological family begins to heal because of a game--let's just call it a miracle--that breaks all the rules
