Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good by Jan Karon (G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 2014).
Although the previous book was billed as the “final” one, it clearly wasn’t. I’m not complaining though – it’s always interesting to read another installment in the life of Father Tim, Southern Episcopal priest. I can’t say whether Jan Karon’s portrayal of small town life in twenty-first century Appalachia is accurate, but it rings true. I’m sure most readers will have read the previous novels in the series, but Karon does make the effort to fill in the back story behind various circumstances, for those who are new or might have forgotten how various characters came in. This installment is well done and worth reading.
