Jan Karon. In This Mountain. New York: Viking, 2002.

After spending time as an interim minister on Whitecap Island, Father Tim Kavanagh and his wife Cynthia have returned to live full-time in Mitford. Father Tim is having a rough time, though. He is in his late sixties, has some health problems, and doesn’t really know what to do with himself now that he is retired. At the same time, his wife Cynthia is receiving attention and awards for her children’s books. Amidst serious life changes and problems, the mundane issues in Tim’s life–like learning to use email–keep the story from getting too heavy. In This Mountain, the seventh in Karon’s series, is populated with familiar Mitford residents, including former jewel thief George Gaynor, but also expands on the stories of several lesser known characters.
