Publisher's Summary

Number one New York Times best-selling author Jan Karon returns with the 14th novel in the beloved Mitford series, featuring three generations of Kavanaghs.
After 12 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. As for what it proves, heaven only knows.
Millions of Karon fans will be thrilled that it's life as usual in the wildly popular Mitford series: A beloved town character lands a front-page obituary, but who was it, exactly, who died? And what about the former mayor, born the year Lindbergh landed in Paris, who's still running for office? All this, of course, is but a feather on the wind compared to Muse editor J. C. Hogan's desperate attempts to find a cure for his marital woes. Will it be high-def TV or his pork chop marinade?
In fiction, as in real life, there are no guarantees.
Twenty minutes from Mitford at Meadowgate Farm, newlyweds Dooley and Lace Kavanagh face a crisis that devastates their bank account and impacts their family vet practice. But there is still a lot to celebrate, as their adopted son, Jack, looks forward to the most important day of his life - with great cooking, country music, and lots of people who love him. Happily, it will also be a day when the terrible wound in Dooley's biological family begins to heal because of a game - let's just call it a miracle - that breaks all the rules.
In To Be Where You Are, Jan Karon weaves together the richly comic and compelling lives of two Kavanagh families and a cast of characters that listeners around the world now love like kin.

Only For The Strong And Persistent

I had such high expectations for this title and I stuck with almost 18 hours of listening doggedly hoping it would perk up. No such luck. This book floats over Mitford randomly dropping in on characters from past books. Sometimes it's just to tick the box on certain people and other times it is for a longer look at how they have fared with time.

For the most part this final entry in the series is for diehard Mitford fans that are feeling really hopeful and strong. Overall I thought it all felt unrealistic and dare I say it--even a bit depressed? I wish I had given this a pass. Disappointing.

Returned book....narration and story not u to par

I loved this series and could not wait to listen to this book....but the narration was very stilted......made the story sound like someone was reading.g a need promoter...I'm not sure if the narration ruined everything or if the writing also lacked life...I freely admit I did not finish the book and maybe it gets better....but I so loved this series and after 30 or 40 minutes of listening I turned it off and returned the book got a refund
