After five hectic years of retirement from Lord’s Chapel, Father Tim Kavanagh returns with his wife, Cynthia, from a so-called pleasure trip to the land of his Irish ancestors.
            While glad to be at home in Mitford, something is definitely missing: a pulpit. But when he’s offered one, he decides he doesn’t want it. Maybe he’s lost his passion.
            His adopted son, Dooley, wrestles with his own passion—for the beautiful and gifted Lace Turner, and his vision to become a successful country vet. Dooley’s brother, Sammy, still enraged by his mother’s abandonment, destroys one of Father Tim’s prized possessions. And Hope Murphy, owner of Happy Endings bookstore, struggles with the potential loss of her unborn child and her hard-won business.
            All this as Wanda’s Feel Good Café opens, a romance catches fire through an Internet word game, their former mayor hatches a reelection campaign to throw the bums out, and the weekly Muse poses a probing inquiry: Does Mitford still take care of its own?

Jan Karon is the author of the bestselling series of nine Mitford novels featuring Father Timothy Kavanagh, an Episcopal priest, and the fictional village of Mitford. Set in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Karon's Mitford books include At Home in Mitford; A Light in the Window; These High, Green Hills; Out to Canaan; A New Song; A Common Life: The Wedding Story; In This Mountain; Shepherd's Abiding; and Light from Heaven. The Father Tim Novels include "Home to Holly Springs" and last fall's release of "In the Company of Others," set in County Sligo, Ireland. There are over 40 million Mitford and Father Tim novels, childrens books, and CDs in print.

  Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good by Jan Karon is such an excellent work of art. I love the way Ms. Karon describes her characters and the wonderful town of Mitford. I’ve heard many people proclaim how they hate to finish a book, how it seems like you are right there and experience the many things the characters go through. That is just what I felt for this book and every book of Ms. Karon’s in the Mitford series. This is book 10 in the series and I hope the stories go on and on. I never want to quit learning about the people in Mitford.
   Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good is full of such tender, compassionate, funny, precious moments and characters. It makes you wish there was such a town that we could all live in and get to know each and every person there.
  In book 10 we have the old regulars that we have read about for years and years and some very new characters that are sweet and dear to us already.
  We are all hoping for another book and I believe we will get it, because so many things were left hanging.
These stories in Mitford just keep getting better.
  I will treasure my book forever.
I highly recommend the Mitford series. Each one can be a stand alone read, but you should start at the beginning, because you will miss so much beautiful stories if you don’t. Love these books and so will you.
