For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Somewhere Safe With Someone Good

Did a book ever make you feel warm and cozy and at home wherever you are? The Jan Karon books do that to me. How a series about the everyday life of an elderly episcopal priest can do that – I don't know. Any writer I know would NEVER tout that as a subject for a series. Yet – Father Tim has had an influence on my life that I just can't understand. Three years ago when I was going through the hardest time I've ever gone through in my life, the Jan Karon Mitford series brought me through. I remember hating to go to bed at night. Then I read about Father Tim being thankful for the pillow that held his head in his cozy house and that one passage put me to sleep many nights.

And now, the newest book of the series just came out. Get this – the title is Somewhere Safe With Somebody Good. Now if that is not THE most comforting phrase I've ever heard, I don't know what is. I'm totally smitten with this latest book. Sitting in my cozy living room, reading this book, smelling the apple pumpkin candle burning, loving the lighted fall leaves on my hearth – just gives me the warmest, most secure feeling I've ever felt.

 

That's my Somewhere Safe. Then I think about this man.

This is my Somebody Good. I am Somewhere Safe With Somebody Good. How blessed and lucky I am.

And so, as another day goes by, I urge you to try the Mitford series and find comfort like you've never known it, and…I have written.
