Publisher's Summary

Jan Karon's millions of fans can't wait to sit down with her heartwarming and hilarious characters, who have a way of becoming family. In fact, readers and booksellers across the country kept Out to Canaan and At Home in Mitford on The New York Times best seller list for months. In A New Song, Mitford's longtime Episcopal priest, Father Tim, retires. However, new challenges and adventures await when he agrees to serve as interim minister of a small church on Whitecap Island. He and his wife, Cynthia, soon find that Whitecap has its own unforgettable characters: a church organist with a mysterious past, a lovelorn bachelor placing personal ads, a mother battling paralyzing depression. They also find that Mitford is never far away when circumstances "back home" keep their phone ringing off the hook. In this fifth novel of the beloved series, fans old and new will discover that a trip to Mitford and Whitecap is twice as good for the soul.

Any additional comments?

I am really enjoying the Mitford series of books. I love John McDonough's artful narration. He brings the characters to life and makes the whole experience a sum greater than its parts. The best thing about reading Jan Karon's books is the level of positivity, hopefulness and happy quirkiness modeled in the characters lives. There is a feeling that bad things happen in life--but individuals and villages cope, manage to make do and even thrive. Plus --there is a good deal of downright silliness to boot. Mitford brings a smile and a laugh.

A Must Read Series

I love all of Jan Karon's books in this series. I have read all of then at least 3 times and listened to them on audio once or twice. Heaven will be just like Mitford- with out the pain of course. Perfection
