Life in Mitford, North Carolina, ebbs and flows with the seasons. In Jan Karon’s new installment of The Mitford Series titled To Be Where You Are, Father Tim’s adopted son, Dooley, is married to the love of his life, Lace, and the newlywed couple are busily setting up a veterinary practice and in the process of adopting a young boy, Jack Tyler. A plumbing disaster sets the couple back financially but Lace is offered a commission for a mural that will cover the cost. Trying to balance work, family and relationships, Lace finds strength in her family, her community and her faith. Reading Karon’s books is like coming home and finding Esther Bolick’s OMC on their table, comfortable and familiar.
