Moving. Soul searching. Timely.
In This Mountain is Jan Karon's newest and best.

Father Tim and Cynthia have been at home in Mitford for three years since returning from Whitecap Island.

In the little town that's home-away-from-home to millions of readers, life hums along as usual. Dooley looks toward his career as a vet; Joe Ivey and Fancy Skinner fight a haircut price war that takes no prisoners; and Percey steps out on a limb with a risky new menu item at the Main Street Grill.

Though Father Tim dislikes change, he dislikes retirement even more. As he and Cynthia gear up for a year-long ministry across the state line, a series of events send shock waves through his faith - and the whole town of Mitford.

In her seventh novel in the bestselling Mitford Years series, Jan Karon delivers surprises of every kind, including the return of the man in the attic and an ending that no one in Mitford will ever forget. Download and start listening now!

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Moonmomie | 2/18/2014

    " Fun, sweet books! Easy to read through, yet quite engaging. Definitely a series you will want to read in order and in it's entirety. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becca | 2/12/2014

    " "Another in the Mitford series, 7th, also enjoyable. Father Tim was a little whiny in this one and rather immobilized at times, which was frustrating, but perhaps necessary to make a point. Also features Dooley." "
