It's never too late.
Father Tim Kavanagh has been asked to "come up higher" more than once. But he's never been asked to do the impossible-until now. The retired Episcopal priest takes on the revival of a mountain church that's been closed for forty years. Meanwhile, in Mitford, he's sent on a hunt for hidden treasure, and two beloved friends are called to come up higher. As Father Tim finds, there are still plenty of heartfelt surprises, dear friends old and new, and the most important lesson of all: "It's never too late."

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 (2005-07-01)

Can Father Tim save an abandoned mountaintop church? Is this a "Mitford Years" novel? Karon wraps up her popular series with this work-but look for a new series starring Father Tim. With a five-city tour.

Review by Library Journal (2006-05-15)

The Mitford saga is concluded in the generally predictable Light from Heaven. Father Tim and his wife, Cynthia, retire to housesit an old country farm, but the quiet life is short-lived when Father Tim is assigned to get the abandoned Holy Trinity Church up and running again. He also helps folks like Louella, who needs him to retrieve her inheritance hidden in a car, and Dovey, who has some medical problems.

Scripture, hymns, and prayers are interspersed in a way that at times seems more preachy than a demonstration of faith in action. Character development is a bit lax, maybe because this title is the conclusion of the series. Still, the story is a nice escape and well read by John McDonough. Recommended for larger collections.
