“After more than thirty-eight years, Father Tim Kavanagh returns to his childhood home of Holly Springs, Mississippi, on a profoundly personal journey.
Whatever became of Tommy Noles, his forbidden childhood friend, and Peggy, a loving woman who was like a second mother? What were the facts behind the court trial that drove the Kavanagh family even further apart?
He figures Thomas Wolfe was right: You can't go home again. Then he discovers the truth: a surprising number of odd connections have miraculously survived time and neglect.
In this first of the Father Tim novels, Jan Karon takes her celebrated Mitford character to territory he has long avoided, the uncharted territory of family, giving us a spellbinding and poignant narrative laced with wisdom and forgiveness only a trip back home can inspire.
Thirty-eight years have passed since Father Tim Kavanagh left his Mississippi hometown, determined not to return. Then he receives a handwritten note postmarked Holly Springs. Cryptic and unsigned it only says, Come home.
These two words compel him to make the most disturbing journey of his life. They also lead him to a truth that will change his life-forever.”
