Yet, Father Tim, the bachelor rector, wants something more. Enter a
dog the size of a sofa who moves in and won't go away. Add an attractive
neighbor who begins wearing a path through the hedge. Now, stir in a
lovable but unloved boy, a mystifying jewel theft, and a secret that's
sixty years old. Suddenly, Father Tim gets more than he bargained for.
And readers get a rich comedy about ordinary people and their ordinary
Light in the Window, by Jan Karon

In this beautifully crafted second novel in the Mitford series, Jan

Only time will tell if the village parson can practice what he preaches.
Like At Home in Mitford, the first novel in the series, this book is
filled with the miracles and mysteries of everyday life. And the affirmation
of what some of us already know: Life in a small town is rarely quiet.
And absolutely never boring.

Miss Fannie's Hat, by Jan Karon (Her first children's book)
Ninety-nine year old Miss Fannie has lots of hats, and she loves
them all. But her favorite is the pink straw hat with the silk roses.
That's the one Miss Fannie has worn on Easter Sunday for the past thirty-five
years. When Miss Fannie's preacher asks her to donate one of her precious
hats to the church auction, choosing which one to part with is no small
task. This heartwarming story about the rewards of unselfish love will
enchant readers young and old. The star of Miss Fannie's Hat is based
on Jan Karon's own grandmother. "My grandmother, Miss Fannie, was so
wonderful I wanted to share her with everyone," says Jan Karon. "I wrote
Miss Fannie's Hat to give both children and adults a sense of family,
to give them the grandmother or great-grandmother they never had, or
always wished they had. Briefly, the story is about sacrifice--and the
rewards that can come when we give with a willing heart."
