About the Author:

Jan Karon, born Janice Meredith Wilson in the foothills of North Carolina, was named after the title of a popular novel, Janice Meredith.

Jan wrote her first novel at the age of ten. "The manuscript was written on Blue Horse notebook paper, and was, for good reason, kept hidden from my sister. When she found it, she discovered the one curse word I had, with pounding heart, included in someone's speech. For Pete's sake, hadn't Rhett Butler used that very same word and gotten away with it? After my grandmother's exceedingly focused reproof, I've written books without cussin' ever since."

Several years ago, Karon left a successful career in advertising to move to the mountain village of Blowing Rock, North Carolina, and write books. "I stepped out on faith to follow my lifelong dream of being an author," she says. "I made real sacrifices and took big risks. But living, it seems to me, is largely about risk."

Enthusiastic booksellers across the country have introduced readers of all ages to Karon's heartwarming books. At Home in Mitford, Karon's first book in the Mitford series, was nominated for an ABBY by the American Booksellers Association in 1996 and again in 1997. Bookstore owner, Shirley Sprinkle, says, "The Mitford Books have been our all-time fiction bestsellers since we went in business twenty-five years ago. We've sold 10,000 of Jan's books and don't see any end to the Mitford phenomenon."

Selected Quotes from Patches of Godlight

None can love freedom heartily but good men; the rest love not freedom, but license.
           —Milton

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee . . . 
            —Isaiah 26:3

God does not give us overcoming life; He gives us life so we overcome. The strain is the strength. Are you asking God to give you life and liberty and joy? He cannot, unless you will accept the strain. Immediately you face the strain, you will get the strength.
           —Oswald Chambers, “My Utmost for His Highest”

As is our confidence, so is our capacity.
           --William Hazlitt

Civilization and violence are antithetical concepts.
           —Martin Luther King, Jr.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
           —Ralph Waldo Emerson

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
           —Edmund Burke

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
           —Philippians 4:13

One man with courage makes a majority.
           —Andrew Jackson

The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion.
           —Solomon

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
           —St. Paul

Courage is not having the strength to go on; it is going on when you don’t have the strength. Industry and determination can do anything that genius and advantage can do and many things that they cannot.
           —Theodore Roosevelt
