4th book in the Mitford series; describes the last year before Father Tim's retirement. A relaxing read.
I love, love, love this series! A lot of fun.
From back of book:
Featuring a lovable cast of new and familiar characters, "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.
Father Tim and his wife, Cynthia are thinking about retirement in the Mitford series.
This is book 4 of the Mitford Years. I loved this entire series and I'm usually more of a mystery lover. Father Tim is still one of my favorite characters. It is fun and inspiring to get to know him and the townspeople.
I read this quite a while ago, but I highly recommend the entire series. Everyone I know who has read it has enjoyed it - people from all walks of life.
Change is coming to the village as Tim, the Episcopal rector, and his wife are pondering the murky uncertain ties of retirement, a brash new mayoral candidate is calling for aggressive development, and a shady realtor with plans for a health spa is eyeing the beloved house on the hill
For someone that doesn't like Series books, this is an exception to my thoughts. The Mitford series hooked me from book #1 and are just as good with book #4. I try to read other books in between, but find myself feeling too anxious to see what's going to happen next in the town of Mitford. I list them as I read them and will have all of them eventually, through her final chapter released this year. Thanks for taking time to read my review and for checking out my listing!
The Mitford Series from Jan Karon will bring a smile to your soul. Be sure to read in order for the most enjoyment.
The fourth novel in the Mitford series. Father Tim, the Episcopal rector, and his wife are pondering the murky uncertainties of retirement, a brash new mayoral candidate is calling for aggressive development; a shady 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 engage in the extraordinary struggle of keeping body and soul together.
Highly recommend the Mitford Series.
Once you start reading this series you can't wait for the next book to come out.
#4 in the Miford series. Father Tim and his wife are thinking of retiring, the mayor is up for reelection, and more adventures with Dooley his teenage son.
Father Tim and Cynthia face retirement.
I want to live in Mitford!
Makes me cry when good things happen with our Heavenly Father's blessings being bestowed upon everyone in need.
Simply supurb!!! In love with the characters and town of Mitford.
Jan Karon's books make you feel like you are really in mitford. You can identify with the characters and you always hope for the best for them. The main character Father Tim faces some of the real challneges that ministers face dealing with congreational problems.
It is a warm continuatiuon of the characters' life stories. This is one series I was so sorry to finish.
My very favorite Mitford book! Loved it
You will enjoy the goings on in this little town of Mitford and how much fun and trouble you can have together. A wonderful series that keeps getting better with each book.
Sweet story (read by the Author); easy listening
Can - or will - Father Tim save the charming integrity of Mitford and has he stopped feeling giddy as a teen-ager because of his loving wife? Love the characters, love the setting....we all need a little Mitford in our lives.
Wonderful book! I can hardly put any the the Mitford series books down, but then miss them when I have finished. I highly recommend this book as well as the complete series!
I loved this whole series. The books just get better and better. Start at number one
A friend shared her books with me so I have this one as spare otherwise I wouldn't part with it.
I love the entire Mitford series...
One of the books in the Mitford / Father Tim series. I read all the books in the series and enjoyed every one of them. Light and easy reading with many heart warming stories 'within' a story about community, good stewardship, friendship, love and more. Not my usual genre but I enjoyed Jan Karon's writing immensely. All the books in the series made the rounds of my book loving friends, and we all agreed, we wish there was at least 'one' more to read.
The fourth novel in the Mitford Series. Wonderful, wholesome book
Jan Karon's Mitford Series are comfort books. They invite you in and make you feel welcome, right at home.
As usual, this book in Jan Karon's Mitford series is up to par with the other books in the series. This is a series I would recommend for anyone to read. You will fall in love with the town of Mitford and it's residents.
#4 in the Mitford Series is wonderful as usual. I just can't wait to find out what is happening to the characters in her books.
This is my second time to read this book. I always enjoy and learn and am blessed by Jan Karon's writing!! The Mitford Series was fantastic!!
The fourth in the series really kept my attention. It was well written and imaginative. It didn't run long and blended in a mature way, all of the characters from the previous book and added some new ones as well. This particular book made me want to visit Mitford and get to know everyone and the quirky ways of this little hamlet.
I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to continue to read this great series.
To me, this is another way to enjoy a Jan Karon book - on audio cd! John McDonagh is the reader for most of the Mitford series, and he does a fabulous job. He portrays Father Tim exactly as I imagine him to be! If you love the books, you need to listen to the unabridged books on cd!
Father Tim just keeps me coming back for more. I love this little town and all the characters who live there. You will fall in love with Dooley and even Barnabas. The Mitford books just make you smile.
The 4th book in the Mitford Series.
Wonderful book. I just can't get enough of this series. I think everyone should read these books. So very heart warming.

The fourth novel in the Bestselling Mitford series. These characters are quirky and endearing.
For readers yewarning for a cozy, neighborly read, the town created by Karon's fine Descriptive style has much to recommend it. This is book four of a five book series.
I have all of them.
Another wonderful installment in the Mitford series, this is book 4.
Easy read, great series for relaxation.
I waited until I could read the first four books one after the other, for I wanted to know "what happens next?" Delightful stories of mostly delightful, interesting people.
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.
Another chapter in small town life and it's troubles.
More fun from the Mitford characters who keep getting more and more lovable as the series goes on.
Each book gets better and better. I loved this one with all its characters, stories in a story and such a lovely town careing for each other.
My very favorite Mitford book by Jan Karon! I truly enjoy listening to John McDonough! Highly recommended!
Join Father Tim and his new bride, Cynthia, for more wonderful adventures in Mitford. I read this one in just one night!
the last of the four books, the finale, was an enjoyable quiet calming read.
As well-written and enjoyable as the previous books in the series. Jan Karon is consistently able to allow us to experience the characters in Mitford going about their daily business like we're looking through a window or listening in on a phone conversation (without feeling voyeuristic!). Simply wonderful.
read it years ago but am getting my 90 yr old mother reading them while she goes thru chemotherapy. I loved the series; best series since All Things Bright...
These characters will become your favorite neighbors
