Entertaining and inspiring

"Out to Canaan" is Jan Karon's fourth book in the Mitford series. As always, she provides a heartwarming, realistic and witty picture of small town life in the NC mountain town of Mitford. One of my favorite things about this series is that varying church denominations get along! I have witnessed that, too but sadly, it is not always so. We in the real world could take lessons from Mitford's residents! As someone who has worked on several church staffs and thus known ministers "up close and personally," I appreciate so much how Karon portrays the clergy as very human, yet good, decent people. Her portrayl of small town life is also on target, in my experience. The book never resorts to preachiness, neither in religions nor politics. For anyone looking for wholesome and entertaining novels, look no farther than Jan Karon's Mitford series.
