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. These two books vary from Karon's nine books in the Mitford Books series only in location and supporting characters. Father Tim is the main character in both series, but the Father Tim books are set outside of Mitford.

I loved Jan Karon's Mitford series, particularly the earliest volumes in the series. In the Company of Others is the second volume in a continuation series, the Father Tim novels. I didn't much care for its predecessor, Home to Holly Springs, but put up with it in hopes of the series improving. It did, slightly, though not enough to bring this book up to the same level as the best of the Mitford series. I think the issue is that, while I enjoy reading about Father Tim, it is the supporting cast that really makes the series work.

Vacation-the very word has been foreign to Episcopal priest Tim Kavanagh. Now retired from tending his flock in the village of Mitford, he is making good on a promise to show his wife, Cynthia, the charming land of his Irish ancestors. But after arriving at a Lough Arrow fishing lodge in the midst of a torrential downpour, the charm disappears.

Follow Father Tim and Cynthia on their journey to research his Kavanagh ancestry in the Irish countryside.   Vacation—the very word has been foreign to Episcopal priest Tim Kavanagh. Now retired from tending his flock in the village of Mitford, he is making good on a promise to show his wife, Cynthia, the charming land of his Irish ancestors. But after arriving at a Lough Arrow fishing lodge in the midst of a torrential downpour, the charm disappears.They find their holiday upended by an intruder, a treasured painting is stolen from the lodge, and a family conflict dating back nearly a century turns even more bitter. As three generations struggle to find deliverance from the crucifying power of secrets, Tim and Cynthia stumble upon a faded journal that might just explain the crime—and offer a chance at redemption.
The Sphinx of Driz
I'm a really old retired sailor. Quit school and jointed up in 1951 at age 17. In those days, on an aircraft carrier, a person could almost read a paperback while standing in the noon chow line (assuming you could be away from your job that long) - - - so, I became an avid reader of anything I could get my hands on. I live in a Senior Mobile Home Park and the lady that maintains our little library in the rec house told me about "At Home In Mitford" so I brought it home and read it. It was one of the best books I've read in my years of reading - - - and, like all of her books, this was just another excellent book written by this genius author.

The two Father Tim books are a little darker than the other Mitford books. This one is set in Ireland where Father Tim and his wife find an old journal which they spend much of the time reading. There is a lot of back and forth between the present and far past (through the old journal), and I struggled a bit with all the names from past and all the names from the present. Many were strange names to me, probably old Gaelic names. In the Mitford series, I have always felt like I knew the characters, even felt excited to get into each new book so I could visit with my friends. In this book, I never really felt like I got to know any of them. I love, love, LOVE the Mitford books, and have re-read many of them, but this one is my least favorite. It was just ok for me.

Each of the Mitford/Father Tim books can be read as a stand alone, but reading the series from beginning to end is infinitely more satisfying. Those familiar with the series already know that Father Tim and his cousin have talked about a trip to the Emerald Isle to explore their Irish heritage, but "something" always came up. Usually at Father Tim's end. Now there are no more excuses, and off they go, but of course the trip doesn't turn out at all like Tim and Cynthia expected.

To those not familiar with the series, "Company" mostly takes place 5,000 miles from Tim and Cynthia's normal haunts, which means the normal cast of Mitfordites are for the most part absent except in the odd overseas phone call or letter. Therefore, don't base base your opinion on the series on this one book alone. It is the exception, rather than the rule.

This was not up to Jan's other books on the Mitford series. I didn't particularly care for this one. It was all over the place. Not that interesting. Rather boring. Way too much bringing another stories into this one.

I didn't like this book. Jan's other books on the Mitford series were delightful, but this one lacked being interesting. Found it rather boring. Too much bringing another story into this one. I struggled trying to get through it. I almost gave it up, wished that I had.

By far the 2nd best book (book 1 being the best) Jan has written so far. Along with following T and C on their Ireland vacation, Cynthia reads an old journal while she is at the Lodge. The description says the journal is tedious. I found the journal absolutely spellbinding. To get a story inside of the story, brings to life Ireland in a way that you could not experience with a regular timeline. The characters are old to young, loving and kind, to hateful and murderous in their intent. Always, the Reverend Timothy brings grace into the circumstances of their lives. Get the book on Audible or CD so that you can follow it easier and actually hear their Irish accent. I could not follow the book, with so many characters, 2 timelines, and a story inside a story with irish words, until I heard it aloud. This made all the difference -to HEAR the Irish accents. So if you want a book about life in Ireland, about forgiveness, reconciliation, sacrifice and deep love, this is the one. I wish she would do another Fr. Tim book.

I have to tell you up front Jan Karon is my favorite author. I've read all her books and loved all but one. That said, I'll try to give as honest a review as possible.

In the Company of Others is the second book in the Father Tim series, the first being Home to Holly Springs. These two books vary from Karon's nine books in the Mitford Books series only in location and supporting characters. Father Tim is the main character in both series, but the Father Tim books are set outside of Mitford.

In the Company of Others takes place in the town of Sligo, Ireland where Father Tim takes his wife Cynthia to show her where he had visited ten years earlier with his cousin Walter and Walter's wife Katherine, before Tim and Cynthia were married. Throughout the book, there are references and communication with family and friends back home and Mitford fans will feel comfortable with that.

What struck me throughout was how easily Father Tim slipped into the hearts of the Sligo people. Just as he did in Mitford, he spotted problems and found ways to solve them. Cynthia's foot is injured and she is unable to get around easily, leaving Father Tim to help the family members of the bed and breakfast where they are staying as well as others. Of course, Cynthia assists in handing out love and care from the bed and breakfast.

The author uses a book-within-a-book approach here that I found quite effective. Father Tim and Cynthia find a handwritten journal written by a doctor who had lived in 1860's and read them since Cynthia is limited in what she could do. What amazed me was the research that must have gone into writing the 1860's story to make it historical correct.

This book will hold your interest from beginning to end, and when it does end, you'll want to know when the next book in the series will be ready. I highly recommend it.
