Synopsis:

In her popular Mitford series, glimmering with gentle laughter and tears, novelist Jan Karon transports you to the cozy small town of your dreams. An instant bestseller, Out to Canaan, finds Father Tim Kavanagh, the beloved Episcopal priest, confronting some unsettling trends in the village. Preparing for his retirement, Father Tim wrestles with a reluctance to release his flock to another shepherd. His difficulties multiply when the new mayoral candidate splits the town's voters with plans for aggressive development. Suddenly the rector and his vivacious wife, Cynthia, are spending their once tranquil days calming heated bickering between old friends. And after some questionable real estate deals threaten to overturn several of the villagers' plans, he wonders if Mitford and its warm-hearted way of life will survive. Narrator John McDonough perfectly voices each of the endearing townsfolk making Jan Karon's closely-knit community hum with the joys and trials of everyday life. A visit with Father Tim in his homespun world will have you packing your bags and poring over maps in search of Mitford.
