Thousands of readers have come home to Mitford, the little town with the big heart, whose endearing and eccentric residents have become like family members. But now change is coming to the hamlet. Father Tim, the Episcopal rector, and his wife Cynthia are pondering retirement; a brash new mayoral candidate is calling for aggressive development; a suspicious realtor with plans for a health spa is eyeing the beloved house on the hill; and, worst of all, the Sweet Stuff Bakery may be closing. Meanwhile, ordinary people are leading the extraordinary lives that hundreds of thousands of readers have found so inviting and inspiring. Peopled with the lovable cast of characters familiar to so many, and peppered with plenty of new and colorful personalities, Out to Canaan is filled to the brim with the mysteries and miracles that make everyday life worth living, and that make Mitford one of the most memorable small towns in recent literature.

    " 4th book, At the end of his ministry we get to enjoy the fruits of his labor! A joyful ending. Great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 2/10/2014

    " Another delightful Mitford tale. For some reason, I seem to be anxious for each glimpse of Buck Leaper in these tales. The hope and despair felt by Father Tim is palpable to the point that I empathize, I guess. I continue to enjoy the characters of Mitford and am constantly pleased at how things work out - with a little prayer and some help from Father Tim, although I thought Edith Mallory and Max should have had their comeuppance. Ah well ... There's always the next book in the series! "
