Kirkus Style Review - A New Song by Jan Karon
A New Song is the fifth book in the Mitford Series by Jan Karon. Father Tim Cavanaugh has just retired as Episcopal Priest of a small parish in the North Carolina town of Mitford. New adventures await as he agrees to assume the post of interim priest at a small church on Whitecap Island with his wife Cynthia. While the story seems like a clean break from the life he'd been living before leaving Mitford, don't be fooled. The story is just a mere extension of the life he'd been living for years. The only difference is the location and characters. While the 4 previous books were a delight to read and left you caught up in Mitford's town life. A New Song in reality should have been the beginning of a new series rather than trying to make it an extension of the old.
