Jan Karon announces the title of her new Mitford novel!
The books are fictional in nature and Christian themed, often placing special emphasis upon the little town of Mitford within which its stories take place. Jan Karon is described as introducing the town as its owner character, a place many readers look forward to visiting in each novel. The stories will often seek to engage readers in terms of the personal intricacies of the different characters, not only presenting their flaws and struggles but daily routines, pets, what they tend to have for lunch and so on and so forth, with the aim of generating a lively and wholesome image of each character.
Jan Karon's new Mitford novel: Exclusive excerpt
Bathed in Prayer is an anthology, not a novel, but it takes us joyfully back into the world of Father Tim. The book opens with a new essay in which Jan recounts her intertwined journeys to authorship and to faith. She found new life in Christ at age forty-two, but it was six more years before she stepped out in faith to pursue her lifelong dream of writing and two more years after that before she realized she must surrender her work, as well as her life, to God. Bathed in Prayer includes excerpts from all fourteen Mitford novels, and each section is introduced by a meaningful quotation or Bible verse. Occasional commentary provides helpful context for both new readers and long-time fans, and all quotes are identified by chapter number, making it easy to locate them in any edition. Quotes from The Book of Common Prayer are identified in footnotes—an especially helpful feature for non-Episcopalians.
A major theme of the books is Father Tim's retirement. He wrestles with the decision to retire, and with what a good retirement looks like. Are you asking similar questions as you "retire" from Mitford? Actually, I'm so fired up for the next series, called "The Father Tim Novels," that I don't feel bereft or pokey-faced or bewildered about what to do now that the Mitford chronicle is completed. I'm very excited to climb into Father Tim's red Mustang convertible and drive with him and his good dog to Holly Springs, Mississippi--with the top down. This first book in the series will be called "Home to Holly Springs," and it's new territory for me, a whole new landscape of feeling and surprise. Yet, I'll be writing about a character who's comfortable and familiar and easy to be with.
