Bonnie: Thanks for stopping by my blog and bringing me to yours just in time to read about Jan Karon. I adore Jan Karon and Mitford. In fact, earlier in the summer I did several blog posts about my trip to "Mitford"/Blowing Rock. I did book talks at various libraries and other venues about Jan and her books. And, I've heard another one in the "Father Tim" series is due out soon.

Hope you recovery is progressing nicely!

Best,
Bonnie

SO exciting!! I'd love to visit the town. The newest book is out this fall! I can't wait. It is about the trip to Ireland. Have you seen the great cover?

Oh... how I miss Blowing Rock! Wow, Jan Karon as a guest! We did a book signing tea for her over 10 years ago when I worked at the Gideon Ridge Inn. Still have her signed copy of her first book. Have been praying for you and a speedy recovery.
