Out to Canaan (by Jan Karon)

'Out to Canaan' is the fourth book written in the 'Mitford' series by Jan Karon.

This book describes another year in Father Tim's life as minister in charge of an Episcopalian church in small-town USA. He ponders on his eventual retirement, and wodners what to do with the large, rambling old house which was left to the church, while relating in his unique way to his delightful parishioners.

Complete in itself, but much better read in sequence after the preceding novels: At Home in Mitford, A Light in the Window, A Common Life, and Those High Green Hills.

Slightly longer review of 'Out to Canaan' is here, written on subsequent re-reading.
