A modern-day hero returns (and so does Peter Graves)

Karon Great news for my fellow Jan Karon readers: Home to Holly Springs hits bookstores today. Karon has stressed that this is not a continuation of her Mitford series, but the start of a new series. But the important thing is that the new series is still about the wise and warm-hearted Father Tim Kavanagh, whom I would marry if I could just resolve that little problem about his being a fictional character. And win his affections away from Cynthia. Which would never happen. Ah, well. At least I can buy the book.

As if that weren't good enough, also being released today is The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Collection, Volume 12, with three episodes I've never seen plus the immortal Parts: The Clonus Horror, starring Peter Graves and umpteen Biography jokes. This is my day and no mistake. I should play the lottery. (Kidding!)

Isn't Father Tim Kavanaugh a priest? That would be another problem about getting married.

Gina Dalfonzo

Episcopalian. (Of the conservative variety.)


And he's way older than you... even in fiction years

Gina, I'm excited about the Holly Springs book as well. I'm currently rereading "Light from Heaven" and have found the revisiting of the Mitford years novels to be an unexpected comfort as my husband and I go through the upheaval of his cancer. I am also simultaneously reading Daniel Mark Epstein's "Sister Aimee: The Life of Aimee Semple McPherson". The real life and all-to-human Sister Amiee and the fictional Father Tim are boon companions at this time, as well as expressions of the power and might, love and compassion of the Godhead that I see when I read my Bible (I read from each book every day). It all gives me quite a bit to discuss in prayer.

And MST3K too! My, you are living the high life. I always liked "Return to Boggy Creek."

One of my sons moved out to marry, and before he could change his mind, we made his room into the library. Getting my books organized, I was able to put my Jan Karon books all in one place. It makes me want to sit in our comfy sleigh futon and start over with Father Tim--it's like comfort food!
