Light from Heaven by Jan Karon

Wednesday, 5 April 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

Fiction: Contemporary. Hardback from Viking (Penguin). Published in 2005. 384 pages. On loan from the Kent District Library.

This is the last book in the Mitford Series, by Jan Karon. I have enjoyed all of the books in the series. They have a wholesome feel to them that I like – and they always end well. I don’t think they are destined to become classics, but considering how long I had to wait for a copy to become available at the libary, I could be wrong.

Publisher’s summary:
All good things—even laughter and orange marmalade cake—must come to an end.

And in Light from Heaven, the long-anticipated final volume in the phenomenally successful Mitford Years series, Karon deftly ties up all the loose ends of Father Timothy Kavanagh’s deeply affecting life.

On a century-old valley farm where Father Tim and Cynthia are housesitting, there’s plenty to say grace over, from the havoc of a windstorm to a surprising new addition to the household and a mystery in the chicken house.

It’s life on the mountaintop, however, that promises to give Father Tim the definitive challenge of his long priesthood. Can he step up to the plate and revive a remote, long-empty mountain church, asap? Or has he been called to accomplish the impossible? Fortunately, he’s been given an angel—in the flesh, of course.

Light from Heaven is filled with characters old and new and with answers to all the questions that Karon fans have asked since the series began nearly a decade ago. To put it simply—it’s her best. And we believe millions will agree.
