Here's the synopsis from Good Reads

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.

My thoughts?  Since this is a series, it feels like a "spoiler" if much is mentioned about the characters and what they have been doing.  So, this one is going to be short.  I love what happens at the softball game!  It was such a sweet part of the book!

Have you read Jan Karon?

  1. I've read the series and love all the characters, Mitford and the Orange Marmalade Cake. It was popular Jan had to get a recipe developed for it.
