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.
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.
4th book in the Mitford series; describes the last year before Father Tim's retirement. A relaxing read.
The Mitford Series from Jan Karon will bring a smile to your soul. Be sure to read in order for the most enjoyment.
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.
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!
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

I have all of them.
Another chapter in small town life and it's troubles.
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.
Easy read, great series for relaxation.
Makes me cry when good things happen with our Heavenly Father's blessings being bestowed upon everyone in need.
It is a warm continuatiuon of the characters' life stories. This is one series I was so sorry to finish.
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.
the last of the four books, the finale, was an enjoyable quiet calming read.
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...
Join Father Tim and his new bride, Cynthia, for more wonderful adventures in Mitford. I read this one in just one night!
4th in the Mitford series.
