In her seventh inspirational novel in the bestselling Mitford 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. 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 Percy 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 sends shock waves through his faith—and the whole town of Mitford.

The driving force that compelled me to write this book, I would say is my love for my late grandmother, Kezbah Yazzie. I had promised her that I would keep her story alive, and since I could not memorize thirteen chapters by rote like she did; the only other way to preserve it was to write it into a book. Writing this book has positively broadened my mind. It took effort and determination. I learned that how smart you are is not a factor for self-esteem. I encourage anyone who has a dream to pursue it. Use the negative experiences in your life to help others. It will definitely charge up a positive life for you.

"Circle This Mountain" is a work of magical realism set against the primeval natural backdrop of Washington State's Olympic Peninsula. The story begins after an American expatriate steals a rare book from the home of a Parisian drug dealer. Unknown to Nicolas Fenn, the novel contains evidence incriminating the dealer and his gang, which they will kill to obtain. When Fenn finds that he is the object of an intense manhunt, he flees Europe, heading for the U.S. Realizing that he still is being sought, there, Fenn vanishes into the mist-shrouded, mysterious high country of the Olympic Mountains. Readers who savor a meticulously crafted tale staged in a setting of wild beauty, with a plot driven by intriguing characters and baited with mystery, will enjoy "Circle This Mountain." So, too, will those with a taste for deeper themes: at the center of this story lies a puzzle whose solution works on factual, spiritual, and literary levels alike, a solution which turns upon a corkscrew of irony-the book within this book not only proves to be surprisingly dangerous, but surprisingly liberating as well.

Lifted to the Shoulders of a Mountain is the personal story of two people, who live lives parallel to each other, before they become man and wife. The story includes their families, as they live after the American Revolution, during the Civil War, and when they move into the area now known as Little Switzerland, N. C. It is one that shows how people triumph over tragedy and the time in which they lived. Little Switzerland, founded in 1909, is a unique place in 2007. "Downtown" includes a post office, a store and cafe, with a connecting bookstore that has an eye-popping eclectic selection. It also has an historical inn with a walled cemetery attached. The cemetery speaks of the local people who live here now and were here before 1909. This book tells about some of their lives.
