All good things even laughter and orange marmalade cake must come to an end.

And in Light from Heaven , the long-anticipated final volume in the phenomenally successful Mitford Years series, Karon deftly ties up all the loose ends of Father Timothy Kavanagh s deeply affecting life.

On a century-old valley farm where Father Tim and Cynthia are housesitting, there s plenty to say grace over, from the havoc of a windstorm to a surprising new addition to the household and a mystery in the chicken house.

It s life on the mountaintop, however, that promises to give Father Tim the definitive challenge of his long priesthood. Can he step up to the plate and revive a remote, long-empty mountain church, asap? Or has he been called to accomplish the impossible? Fortunately, he s been given an angel in the flesh, of course.

Light from Heaven is filled with characters old and new and with answers to all the questions that Karon fans have asked since the series began nearly a decade ago.

Book 9 (last one) in The Mitford Series.

I enjoyed Jan Karon's finale to her Mitford series. Karon is great at creating novels full of both comedy and drama that pulls the reader forward while resolving itself easily by the book's end. My only complaint was that one of the series' dilemmas was resolved a little too easily and conveniently at the very end. Otherwise, a very worthwhile and satisfying read.
