Home to Holly Springs by Jan Karon
Book DescriptionJoin Father Tim on a profoundly personal journey back to his childhood home. Thirty-eight years have passed since Father Tim Kavanagh left his Mississippi hometown, determined not to return. Then he receives a handwritten note postmarked Holly Springs. Cryptic and unsigned, it says only "Come home." These two words compel him to make the most challenging journey of his life. Traveling to his boyhood home doesn t merely take Father Tim across hundreds of miles. Thanks to a thousand sights and smells, he also travels back through memories some fond and some he s tried for nearly forty years to forget, from his quick-to-anger father and his lovingly tender mother to the picturesque small town he d tried desperately to leave behind. And once Father Tim discovers who was behind the mysterious note, a truth is revealed that will change his life forever."

Author Biography - Jan Karon
Jan Karon, born Janice Meredith Wilson in the foothills of North Carolina, was named after the title of a popular novel, Janice Meredith. Jan wrote her first novel at the age of ten. The manuscript was written on Blue Horse notebook paper, and was, for good reason, kept hidden from my sister. When she found it, she discovered the one curse word I had, with pounding heart, included in someone s speech. For Pete s sake, hadn t Rhett Butler used that very same word and gotten away with it? After my grandmother s exceedingly focused reproof, I ve written books without cussin ever since. Several years ago, Karon left a successful career in advertising to move to the mountain village of Blowing Rock, North Carolina, and write books. I stepped out on faith to follow my lifelong dream of being an author, she says. I made real sacrifices and took big risks. But living, it seems to me, is largely about risk. Enthusiastic booksellers across the country have introduced readers of all ages to Karon s heartwarming books. "At Home in Mitford," Karon s first book in the Mitford series, was nominated for an ABBY by the American Booksellers Association in 1996 and again in 1997. Bookstore owner, Shirley Sprinkle, says, The Mitford Books have been our all-time fiction bestsellers since we went in business twenty-five years ago. We ve sold 10,000 of Jan s books and don t see any end to the Mitford phenomenon. "
