Jan Karon is like a fine wine. She gets better and better as the years go on. I loved In the Company of Others. There are so many passages I would like to quote. I agree with Ms Karon, this is her finest yet. Beautiful scenery depicted to us. Tim and Cynthia have one of the most wonderful blessed relationships and I long to be like them. What a wonderful model for us all.

The whole mystery of who was in the cabinet, who stole the painting, just brilliant! I loved the journal writing. I couldn't wait for them to open it every time! There wasn't a character I didn't like. I think it is somehow how Ms Karon writes that all the characters just come, and I don't confused when she introduces us to that many somehow.

Then there is Bella, a young woman, feeling so many different things, as teenagers tend to do. What a beautiful picture of God's grace and mercy. The same can also be said for Evie, or Evelyn. No matter what you do, or how much you think you are in control, God is the one and only.

If you weren't in tears or deeply moved by this book, I am sorry you missed the boat.

I don't mind waiting 3 years for a book like this. It will stay with me forever. Thank you Ms Karon, you are a true blessing to this follower.
