Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
In These High, Green Hills we're once again in Mitford, a southern village of local characters so heartwarming and hilarious you'll wish you lived right next door.

At last, Mitford's rector and lifelong bachelor, Father Tim, has married his talented and vivacious neighbor, Cynthia. Now, of course, they must face love's challenges: new sleeping arrangements for Father Tim's sofa-sized dog, Cynthia's urge to decorate the rectory Italian-villa-style, and the growing pains of the thrown-away boy who's become like a son to the rector.

Add a life-changing camping trip, the arrival of the town's first policewoman, and a new computer that requires the patience of a saint, and you know you're in for another engrossing visit to Mitford--the little town that readers everywhere love to call home.

About the author

Biography of Karon, Jan

Jan Karon was born in North Carolina in 1937. After a career in advertising, she began writing a column in the Blowing Rocket. The column, about life in the small North Carolina town of Mitford, centered around an Episcopalian minister named Father Tim. Her Father Tim stories were collected into a book and published by a Christian publisher. She has won numerous awards for her work including the Christy Award for A New Song and the Gold Medallion Award for A New Song, A Common Life, In This Mountain, and Shepards Abiding. She has also written two children's book entitled Miss Fannie's Hat and Jeremy: The Tale of an Honest Bunny. In 2010 her book Shepherds Abiding hit the New York Times best seller list.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (1996-07-01)

Fans of Karon's previous novels, At Home in Mitford and A Light in the Window, will find themselves in familiar territory. While changes come to the affable Episcopal priest Father Tim and his neighbors in the small Southern town of Mitford, the tone and style remain consistent. Karon blends humor with sorrow and grants her characters a healthy dose of heavenly grace to face life's challenges. This outing finds Father Tim adjusting to married life, dealing with a new church computer, confronting issues of domestic violence and child abuse, providing courtship advice to the local newspaper editor, and facing the prospect of retirement. Despite upheavals and strained friendships, peace and harmony are inevitably restored, and Mitford rests comfortable once again. Recommended for most fiction collections.
