To Be Where You Are by Jan Karon on Bette’s Bookshelf

#1 New York Times bestselling author Jan Karon returns with the fourteenth novel in the beloved Mitford series, featuring three generations of Kavanaghs.

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–but what, exactly, does it prove? Meanwhile, newly married Dooley and Lace face a crisis that empties their bank account and turns their household upside down. Is the honeymoon over? Is this where real life begins?

As the Mitford Muse editor stumbles on a quick fix for marital woes and the town grocer falls in love for the first time, Father Tim and Cynthia receive an invitation to yet another family wedding.

But perhaps the bottom line is this: While a star blinks out in the Mitford firmament, another soon blinks on at Meadowgate, and four-year-old Jack Tyler looks forward to the biggest day of his life–for now and forever.

Jan Karon weaves together the everyday lives of two families, and the cast of characters that readers around the world now love like kin.

To Be Where You Are by Jan Karon on Bette’s Bookshelf

I’ve started reviewing books with the New York Journal of Books. This is my first one. I picked Jan Karon’s latest Mitford novel, To Be Where You Are. It reminds me of the Wyattsville Series where the story takes place in a particular town in the south. Both series are full of quirky characters. Readers have responded to both series by saying how they wish this was a real place that they could live in. I feel the Wyattsville Series might have a little more angst and mystery in it but both series still have a comfortable and cozy atmosphere.

I enjoyed Mitford and I hope you do to. I have a hardback book to give away to celebrate. Please comment about the Wyattsville Series or the Mitford Series to enter to win. ***US shipping only***
