To Be Where You AreBook - 2017
As the Mitford Muse editor stumbles on a quick fix for marital woes and the town grocer falls in love for the first time, Father Tim and Cynthia receive an invitation to yet another family wedding.
But perhaps the bottom line is this- While a star blinks out in the Mitford firmament, another soon blinks on at Meadowgate, and four-year-old Jack Tyler looks forward to the biggest day of his life--for now and forever.
Jan Karon weaves together the everyday lives of two families, and the cast of characters that readers around the world now love like kin.

“He remembered his mama sayin’ it was curiosity that killed th’ cat. As a young’un, he expected to die a sudden death every day or two.”
“Grace held her breath. A story was like opening a door; you never knew what you would find on the other side.”
“Father Tim told him the other day that everybody needed three things:
Somebody to love - he had Grace and her mama an’ daddy an’ Sister Louise an’ all manner of people who come in th’ bookstore.
Somethin’ to do - look at the job he had, livin’ up here like he was ol’ Croesus hisself.
An’ somethin’ to look forward to - as for that part, he had solved it by always, always keepin’ a good book underneath his candy jar.”
“I would have told him that God was in love with him, that he made us for himself. As hard as that is to imagine, the power of it speaks to people, gives a certain comfort. I would have said that God isn’t just up there, he’s down here with us, knowing the beating of our hearts. I would have told him the governing truth, the bottom line-that what we must do is empty ourselves, surrender everything, asking his guidance in our lives.”
