To Be Where You Are by Jan Karon

I did not know this was a series until I read the book and it deals with three generations of Kavanaghs.

This is a story with a big cast and maybe because I have read a book in a middle of a series I got a bit confused. Keeping track of them all was not that easy. Basically two families but with many, many people on the side, all very individualistic, all having issues and problems of their own converging into one community.

Very much a community story and one that takes you into a cleaner (in a metaphorical sense) world that probably does not exist much as I would like it to be around. Nice to indulge in for a bit till one is pulled back into the real world.

  1. I read a few of the early books in this enjoyable series. I remember there were numerous characters that had me keeping a list and descriptions nearby when I read.

  2. I read a few of the first books in this series but soon got a little tired of it. I know many readers love the series, but possibly they have read along year by year and been hooked by it.

  3. I like the sound of this one...but I should probably begin at the beginning. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I like the sound of the book but would start with #1. I love the cover!

  5. Ah yes it's hard jumping into a big series full of characters sometimes. Looks nice, though :)
