Out to Canaan by Jan Karon

And now, the fourth in the Mitford series, Out to Canaan by Jan Karon.

Set again in the small town of Mitford, western North Carolina, this book continues the story of Father Tim and Cynthia, but really the story of the entire town as well as much of the nearby loose community called the Creek.

As I was casually thinking about this book the other day, I realized I don’t know many other series that center around a person in his 60s. Sure, there’s a book here or there, but for a character that we know through an ongoing connection, it seems a bit more rare than stories that star younger people.

The authors website.

Next on my stack: An author I’ve never read before, but who comes highly recommended by good reading friends.
