Book Review

In the Company of Others
(A Father Tim novel)
by Jan Karon
Viking, Oct. 2010

Reviewed by Diane Busch

If you have read any books in the Mitford series by Jan Karon, then you already know and love Father Tim.  If you are new to these delightful books, you can jump right in with this book and not feel like you have missed anything.  (Although, I am sure that when you are finished, you will want to go back and read the other Mitford and Father Tim books.)

This delightful book takes place in Ireland.  Father Tim Kavanagh, the beloved retired Episcopal priest and his wife, Cynthia, are on vacation at a Bed & Breakfast Inn in County Sligo.  Before long there is a mystery to solve.  Father Tim has daily adventures and Cynthia is laid up with an injured ankle.  They both are reading a journal from the bookshelves of the inn to learn about the history.  The food, the people, the history, and the character of Ireland are women through each page.  I found myself smiling every day as I immersed myself in the story.
