A stirring page-turner from the bestselling author of the Mitford Series.

Jan Karon's new series, launched with her New York Times bestselling Home to Holly Springs, thrilled legions of Mitford devotees, and also attracted a whole new set of readers. "Lovely," said USA Today. "Rejoice!" said The Washington Post.

In this second novel, Father Tim and Cynthia arrive in the west of Ireland, intent on researching his Kavanagh ancestry from the comfort of a charming fishing lodge. The charm, however, is broken entirely when Cynthia startles a burglar and sprains her already-injured ankle. Then a cherished and valuable painting is stolen from the lodge owners, and Cynthia's pain pales in comparison to the wound at the center of this bitterly estranged Irish family.

In the Company of Others is a moving testament to the desperate struggle to hide the truth at any cost and the powerful need to confess. Of all her winning novels, Jan Karon says this "dark-haired child" is her favorite-a sentiment readers everywhere are certain to share.

If you've read the Mitford books, you will love this series as well. If you haven't read the Mitford series you are missing out.

Another good read. Took a bit to 'get into' one of the secondary plots but enjoyed it none the less.

I have enjoyed all of the books about Mitford and Father Tim and Cynthia so much! They have become like a part of my family. I cannot wait to read the next chapter in their lives, which concentrates on Dooley!

I adored this book, loved the way Jan Karon so cleverly intertwined several stories and time periods. Father Tim is a wonderful character.
