In her seventh inspirational novel in the bestselling Mitford series, Jan Karon delivers surprises of every kind, including the return of the man in the attic and an ending that no one in Mitford will ever forget. In the little town that’s home-away-from-home to millions of readers, life hums along as usual. Dooley looks toward his career as a vet; Joe Ivey and Fancy Skinner fight a haircut price war that takes no prisoners; and Percy steps out on a limb with a risky new menu item at the Main Street Grill. Though Father Tim dislikes change, he dislikes retirement even more. As he and Cynthia gear up for a year-long ministry across the state line, a series of events sends shock waves through his faith—and the whole town of Mitford.

"Circle This Mountain" is a work of magical realism set against the primeval natural backdrop of Washington State's Olympic Peninsula. The story begins after an American expatriate steals a rare book from the home of a Parisian drug dealer. Unknown to Nicolas Fenn, the novel contains evidence incriminating the dealer and his gang, which they will kill to obtain. When Fenn finds that he is the object of an intense manhunt, he flees Europe, heading for the U.S. Realizing that he still is being sought, there, Fenn vanishes into the mist-shrouded, mysterious high country of the Olympic Mountains. Readers who savor a meticulously crafted tale staged in a setting of wild beauty, with a plot driven by intriguing characters and baited with mystery, will enjoy "Circle This Mountain." So, too, will those with a taste for deeper themes: at the center of this story lies a puzzle whose solution works on factual, spiritual, and literary levels alike, a solution which turns upon a corkscrew of irony-the book within this book not only proves to be surprisingly dangerous, but surprisingly liberating as well.

The driving force that compelled me to write this book, I would say is my love for my late grandmother, Kezbah Yazzie. I had promised her that I would keep her story alive, and since I could not memorize thirteen chapters by rote like she did; the only other way to preserve it was to write it into a book. Writing this book has positively broadened my mind. It took effort and determination. I learned that how smart you are is not a factor for self-esteem. I encourage anyone who has a dream to pursue it. Use the negative experiences in your life to help others. It will definitely charge up a positive life for you.

A Great Fire War had once scorched the earth, leaving it barren for generations and only those who took refuse underground were their childrens children able to live once again upon the surface of the earth. For years the West Mountain people lived pleasantly on the surface of the earth outside of the Mother Cave, until reports from the other Warrior tribes told of attacks from a people who still use the ancient machines to capture and enslave. The Chiefs daughter, Paula was delighted when the Council announced she would lead and be sent with three others as messengers to the other Warrior tribes for a call of unity to stand against these invaders. She set out with her best friend Sissy, a young healer, her cousin Mira, the best warrior of her tribe, and their friend, Peggy. Together they set out to warn the other tribes, but separated to make up for lost time waiting for Paula and Peggy to heal after a battle with mutated men. Paula and Sissy catch a ride in the wasteland and unknowingly find themselves in the enemy territory. There they find danger and unexpected allies. **** All four of us sat erect, pushing our chests out, holding our heads high, riding through the main street with our people cheering us... There is nothing like the adorations of our family and peers. How soon we would come to learn the difference of people who would not see us so, regarding us as their prey or their enemy, to use us whatever way they could. Leaving the tribe behind, we had no knowledge of that. We were sure of our skills and our persons... **** He glared at me, his voice deepened, commanding. You will hand me that chain and then you will strip and put hose dirty rags in this basket. Now!... His retaliation was swift. He slapped me hard enough to bring me to my knees with my eyes watering and my cheek stinging...

Climbing Veritas Mountain is a weapon in the war for souls and is intended to arm the readers with a shield of self-awareness and the sword of Truth! It offers a great resource for those who are curious about the basic principles of the Christian faith, for those in the faith who are learning how the faith applies to the contemporary norms of our day, and for those Catholics who have always gone through the motions of their faith but do not quite know why. Ryan Paul Young is on a journey. His journey is a walk with the Lord where his only task is to let Him lead the way. This journey has thus far taken him in directions that he didnt know were possible. This conversation with you is the next step in his walk with the Lord. The Lord has asked Ryan to write down little bits of wisdom that he has learned thus far in his short life. The author reveals that many of us are unwitting practitioners of the religion of individualism which is rapidly spreading spiritual darkness and he challenges us to discover the meaning of our lives.
