Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good by Jan Karon

Detailed item info
Synopsis
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.

From the author of the Mitford books including Come Rain or Come Shine: Welcome back home to Mitford. We ve been waiting for you... After five hectic years of retirement from Lord s Chapel, Father Tim Kavanagh returns with his wife, Cynthia, from the land of his Irish ancestors. While he s glad to be at home in Mitford, something is definitely missing from his life: a pulpit. But when he s offered one, he decides he doesn t want it. For years, he believed he had a few answers. Now he has questions. How can he possibly help Dooley s younger brother, Sammy, make it through the fallout of a disasterous childhood? Could doing a good deed for the town bookstore be the best thing for his befuddled spirit? And who was riding through town in a limo? Not Edith Mallory. Then an editorial in the weekly Muse poses a question that sets the whole town looking for answers: Does Mitford still take care of its own? Now sit back, relax, and discover why USA Today says Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good "hits the sweet spot at the intersection of your heart and your funny bone."

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
