#1 New York Times bestselling author Jan Karon returns with the fourteenth novel in the beloved Mitford series, featuring three generations of Kavanaghs.
 
After twelve years of wrestling with the conflicts of retirement, Father Tim Kavanagh realizes he doesn't need a steady job to prove himself. Then he's given one. As for what it proves, heaven only knows.

Millions of Karon fans will be thrilled that it’s life as usual in the wildly popular Mitford series: A beloved town character lands a front-page obituary, but who was it, exactly, who died? And what about the former mayor, born the year Lindbergh landed in Paris, who’s still running for office? All this, of course, is but a feather on the wind compared to Muse editor J.C. Hogan’s desperate attempts to find a cure for his marital woes. Will it be high-def TV or his pork chop marinade?
 
In fiction, as in real life, there are no guarantees.
 
Twenty minutes from Mitford at Meadowgate Farm, newlyweds Dooley and Lace Kavanagh face a crisis that devastates their bank account and impacts their family vet practice.
 
But there is still a lot to celebrate, as their adopted son, Jack, looks forward to the most important day of his life—with great cooking, country music, and lots of people who love him. Happily, it will also be a day when the terrible wound in Dooley’s biological family begins to heal because of a game—let’s just call it a miracle—that breaks all the rules.
 
In To Be Where You Are, Jan Karon weaves together the richly comic and compelling lives of two Kavanagh families, and a cast of characters that readers around the world now love like kin.


Advance Galley Reviews

I have just finished the book and as with the rest of the series I'm left wanting to read more. I so enjoyed reading about the maturing of the relationships that we have watched begin and grow in the other books. I have always thought how wonderful it would be to live in a 'Mitford' and have a real Father Tim In the life of the town. I am eagerly awaiting the next book, to again catch up with all these wonderful characters.

I've read all of Jan Karon's books and love all of them. This book is no different - it was a great story! I didn't want it to end ... I can't wait for the next book!

The beginning starts off slow but by no means is this a boring book. This is a continuation of the popular Mitford Series by Jan Karon. It continues the emotional and raw stories of the Kavanagh families. Father Tim is coming to realizations about himself and his purpose. The newly-wed Dooley and Lace have to deal with major tragedy, stress and loss. Jack is the hero or shining star as he heals old wounds and brings the family and town much happiness. This story takes place in a small town but there isn't anything small about it. It's full of real life situations infused with comedy, love, forgiveness and bonding. You may find yourself wishing you were part of this beloved family and their magical town.
