Mitford's Lord's Chapel seats barely two hundred souls, yet millions of Jan Karon's fans will be there for the most joyous event in years: the wedding of Father Tim Kavanagh and Cynthia Coppersmith.
Here at last is "A Common Life," the sixth book in the bestselling Mitford Years series, and the long-awaited answers to these deeply probing questions: Will Father Tim fall apart when he takes his vows? Will Cynthia make it to the church on time? Who'll arrange the flowers and bake the wedding cake? And will Uncle Billy's prayers for a great joke be answered in time for the reception? All the beloved Mitford characters will also be in the pews: Dooley Barlowe, Miss Sadie and Louella, Emma Newland, the mayor; in short, everybody who's anybody in the little town with the big heart.
"A Common Life" is the perfect gift for Mother's Day, Father's Day, anniversaries, and for a bride or groom to give to her or his beloved. In truth, it's perfect for anyone who believes in laughter, relies on hope, and celebrates love.
There's a little oasis of wholesomeness amid the sex-and-violence-saturated bestseller lists: Jan Karon's Mitford novels." ("The Wall Street Journal")
