Kurzbeschreibung

Another stirring page-turner about Father Tim—this time set in County Sligo—from Jan Karon, bestselling author of the Mitford Series

Jan Karon's new Father Tim series, launched with her New York Times bestselling Home to Holly Springs, thrilled legions of Mitford devotees, and also attracted a whole new set of readers. "Lovely," said USA Today. "Rejoice!" said The Washington Post.

In this second installment in the series, Father Tim and Cynthia arrive in the west of Ireland, intent on researching his Kavanagh ancestry from the comfort of a charming fishing lodge. The charm, however, is broken entirely when Cynthia startles a burglar and sprains her already-injured ankle. Then a cherished and valuable painting is stolen from the lodge owners, and Cynthia's pain pales in comparison to the wound at the center of this bitterly estranged Irish family.

In the Company of Others is a moving testament to the desperate struggle to hide the truth at any cost and the powerful need to confess. Of all her winning novels, Jan Karon says this "dark-haired child" is her favorite.


Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Jan Karon, born Janice Meredith Wilson in the foothills of North Carolina, was named after the title of a popular novel, Janice Meredith.

Jan wrote her first novel at the age of ten. "The manuscript was written on Blue Horse notebook paper, and was, for good reason, kept hidden from my sister. When she found it, she discovered the one curse word I had, with pounding heart, included in someone's speech. For Pete's sake, hadn't Rhett Butler used that very same word and gotten away with it? After my grandmother's exceedingly focused reproof, I've written books without cussin' ever since."

Several years ago, Karon left a successful career in advertising to move to the mountain village of Blowing Rock, North Carolina, and write books. "I stepped out on faith to follow my lifelong dream of being an author," she says. "I made real sacrifices and took big risks. But living, it seems to me, is largely about risk."

Enthusiastic booksellers across the country have introduced readers of all ages to Karon's heartwarming books. At Home in Mitford, Karon's first book in the Mitford series, was nominated for an ABBY by the American Booksellers Association in 1996 and again in 1997. Bookstore owner, Shirley Sprinkle, says, "The Mitford Books have been our all-time fiction bestsellers since we went in business twenty-five years ago. We've sold 10,000 of Jan's books and don't see any end to the Mitford phenomenon."

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Long Wait is Over 19. Oktober 2010
Von Deborah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
It's been three LONG years since Jan Karon's last book and it's been a LONG wait. I fell in love with the Mitford series a few years ago and have been eagerly awaiting the release of this book. The first book in the Father Tim series introduced us to another side of everyone's favorite reverend as he discovers another side of his family he didn't know had existed. This book takes him and his wife to Ireland, the land of his ancestors, where Father Tim plans on trying to have a relaxing vacations but other circumstances arise changing his plans.

I was really glad to see Cynthia reappear in this book. She was sadly missed in the previous volume and it was wonderful to see her again. I love her relationship with Father Tim as they have one of the most loving marriages I've seen written in literature. They love each other and get along but also have spats which make them realistic. I hope that when I'm in my golden age, my marriage will be like theirs. They have great chemistry together and I love reading about them. The story is rich in detail about Ireland, its culture and its people. I loved how the Irish people are shown speaking in dialect as it added cultural flavor to the story. The story is not filled with Irish stereotypes or cliches but instead added an international flavor to the story.

While I did enjoy the story, there were parts of this book that just were not to my liking. One is while the presence of Cynthia is much appreciated, I really missed Mitford and its citizens. While Father Tim is core to the story, the personalities of the townsfolk really add to the story with their zany antics and interesting backgrounds. I was excited to read emails from Dooley and Emma but it it just wasn't enough. I miss all of them! I also got a bit annoyed that Tim and Cynthia kept missing out on hanging out with Walter and Katherine. It was rotten luck but I always feel like we never get to spend time with Walter and Katherine and would have loved for the the two couples to team up. My final qualm was that even though the diary sections were crucial to the story, I found them to be very boring. I don't know if it was the way they were written or if I just felt that they were less exciting than the main story, but every time I got to the entries, I really wanted to skip over them.

Overall, except for these qualms, I did enjoy the book. I loved traveling to Ireland with the Kavanaghs and really felt as if I was there with them on vacation. The characters in the story, while not as enjoyable as the Mitford clan, were unique and interesting in their own way and gave the story a wonderful feel of Irish culture. I would love to visit Ireland one day (my husband's family is of Irish descent) and this book made me yearn for it even more. I hope that the wait won't be TOO long for the next book in this series. I enjoyed my stay with Father Tim and Cynthia and look forward to spending more time with them in the future.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Missing Mitford 20. Oktober 2010
Von Gordie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I certainly agree with Deborah's review. I miss Mitford, too. I had so looked forward to this newest Father Tim book and pre-ordered it so I could have it immediately upon publication. Like Deborah, I found the long journal passages boring. I never did figure out who the live people were, much less the dead ones. There were just too many characters introduced over too short a period of time in this book. Their relationships with each other were complicated and difficult to follow. In the beloved Mitford series, the characters were quite believable and flowed more naturally. They weren't thrown into the story in bunches at a time. The Irish-accented English was difficult to follow throughout the book, as well. Though it was authentic to the characters, it made for slow reading. Too much excitement/bad luck/criminal activity/drama was introduced too quickly and dragged on too long. I had hoped Father Tim and Cynthia could have enjoyed a relaxing vacation and made some pleasant connections in the family homeland. However, this was not to be. I was glad to find out what was happening in Dooley's life back home in the U.S., but I didn't relate to these new, strange people in Ireland.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Long awaited...and a disappointment 9. November 2010
Von Susan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Although Jan Karon has stated in interviews that she is done with the Mitford series, I nonetheless preordered this book with the hope that I would find something of the old Father Tim there. Written in a faux-Irish accent, and interspersed with long passages from a journal that he and Cynthia discover at the lodge, also in an equally quaint Irish, the book soon moved from den to bedroom - a before-sleep read. While I was happy that Father Tim has finally learned to say "no" at age 70, why in heaven's name would he become so intimately involved in the problems of this family when this was to be Cynthia's birthday vacation, as well as his? Without giving away the plot for those who still wish to read it, it is simply implausible, the characters dull - must Liam broadcast the emotion of the moment on his face and need to "have a word" with Fr. Tim every day? And it seems that the phrase "into the bargain" is also used by the Irish villagers, which along with Uncle Billy's "don't you know," soon becomes annoying to me when I read her work. At nearly $30 a pop, I'll be certain to thumb through any future books by Ms. Karon before making a purchase. My advice would be that she hop into the Vauxhall, hie herself to the airport, and get back to Mitford, a town that has characters that have something to say, "please God." I have every single book written by this author, but am willing to donate this one to the local book sale. Can you go home again? You can if you love Mitford!

1.0 von 5 Sternen So disappointed 27. Oktober 2010

Have read all of theMitford Series and was so looking forward to this. What a disappointment. Dialogue is at times very difficult to understand and I miss the characters from Mitford.

1.0 von 5 Sternen In the Company of Others 3. November 2010
Von George - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I find myself amoung those who are very disappointed in this book. I loved all of the Mitford books and this one certainly lacks the inspiration and charm of those novels. Don't like to be negative but this book has just become a chore to read to the end.
