Frequently bought together
Longtime mayor Esther Cunningham, revered for preserving the traditions of the town, finds a formidable foe in Mack Stroupe, a free-spending industrialist who stands for the two most reviled words in Mitford: change and development. If that isn't enough, a suspicious company called "Miami Development" wants to buy Sadie Baxter's home--a Mitford landmark--and turn it into a hoity-toity spa. Father Tim has his hands full again with Dooley, his foster child who is back from prep school for the summer. The good rector continues to doctor Dooley's troubled past by locating his siblings, Poohbaw and Jessie, and finding their alcoholic mother, Pauline, work. The plethora of intricately woven, cozy vignettes makes Out to Canaan a potpie of warm, country reading. --Rebekah Warren

Meanwhile, the mayoral election looms, and Mayor Esther Cunningham faces a serious challenge. Plus, someone is buying property in the town and working hard to buy more. Who is behind these offers?
Love, forgiveness, redemption, and healing are major themes in this novel.
I highly recommend this novel.
Tension ratchets up as personalities clash and unscrupulous goings on are happening right and left.
Will Father Tim and his bride survive? Will friends remain friends? Is Mitford ready for change?
Karon writes with humor and grace, much like the newlyweds proceed their lively decisions.
