Yesterday, USA Today posted this article on the end of Jan Karon's popular "Mitford" novels.

Best-selling author Jan Karon, 68, is closing the book on her popular Mitford series, with the ninth, Light from Heaven (Viking, $26.95), out this week.

"I have no more stories to tell about Mitford," she says of the novels that chronicle the escapades of the affable Episcopal priest Father Tim Kavanagh in the charming village of Mitford, N.C.

There are 25 million copies of her 15 books in print, including two children's books. Her work, which has Christian overtones, has a devout following.

Fans of character Father Tim will be glad to know that Karon is starting a new series starring the 70-year-old priest. The "Father Tim Novels" launches fall 2007.
