Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Mix one part All Creatures Great and Small with two parts Lake Wobegon, sprinkle a little Anne of Green Gables and get: Mitford, the pinnacle of provincial life, where homespun wisdom, guarded tradition, and principled faith are the precepts of good living. Jan Karon, purveyor of so-called "gentle fiction," continues the series that began with At Home in Mitford, in Out to Canaan. The patriarch of the tightly bound community of Mitford, North Carolina, is Father Timothy Kavanaugh, a.k.a. legal counsel, psychologist, foster parent, headhunter, husband, political analyst, and rector of his congregation. He is always there to lend a helping hand, a kind word or bit of advice, which believe it or not, makes for an incredibly busy schedule in this quiet, country town.

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

5.0 von 5 Sternen Philippians four thirteen, for Pete's sake! 27. Januar 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Just as Father Kavanaugh's rectory is overcrowded (Wife, dog, convalescent, teenagers, babies), so too is this fourth novel by Jan Karon. It is a happy business, this crowding--it means more life and more love for Timothy Kavanaugh, our erstwhile Episcopalian priest. But the addition of at least a half dozen new characters means that loyal readers may find themselves missing the comfort of the loving exchanges grown familiar from the previous three Mitfordian heartwarmers. Why, I don't think anybody vows to be "et for a 'tater." And Cynthia gives us only one list of what she doesn't love. (Dust on ceiling fans, grumpy husbands) But after all, these ARE Timothy Kavanaugh's books, and these new people are his new challenges. Even as we regret not learning more about the previous supporting characters, we feel the town of Mitford expand as we become closely acquainted with Winnie Ivey (runs The Sweet Shoppe), meet yet another ancient but irrepressible old man (Harley is his name. He lives in the rector's basement, drives a truck with 320 horsepower, is prone to toothless but angelic smiles), and find surrogate son Dooley's baby sister Jessie curled up in Father Tim's lap. Readers may observe that characterization is significantly more complex in "Out to Canaan" than in any of the other Mitford books. Ron Malcom, for instance, a stalwart of the parish council, hurts our very human minister so deeply in a tricky real estate manuover that Father Tim must reach for forgiveness over and over and over...How very real those exchanges are! How comforting it is to know that even in Mitford people confuse each other, wound each other, and don't always exhibit supreme strength of character. But for the most part, they, like us, try their very best. This novel leaves us yearning for more news of Mitford, for yet another book. (And surely, we will have one, because Dooley's two remaining siblings have yet to come home!)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sweet, lovely, touching and at times hilarious! 27. Januar 1998
Von CRS
Format:Hörkassette
I stumbled upon book two, "A Light in the Window" while browsing at a book store and liked the looks of it but it was over two weeks with searches in two states while on business before I was able to purchase and begin book one, "At Home in Mitford". Immediately, I was hooked and didn't stop until I finished book four, "Out to Canaan".
I laughed, chuckled, smiled aplenty and even shed some tears, knowing from the first chapter of the first book that I had to share these gems with my parents.
My parents were born and raised in the same small town I was and imagine my surprise while reading page 94 of "Out to Canaan" and finding that former parishioner Albert Wilcox was found over the internet in my home town...Oak Harbor, WA! Where my parents still live, I might add. I let that be a surprise when I sent them the complete set of books so we could each have our own.
Jan Karon's Mitford books are truly a delight and would bring a smile to almost anyone's face as well as a lift of their spirits!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Visit Mitford -- you won't be disappointed 29. Mai 2000
Von MFS
Format:Taschenbuch
If you cry during reruns of Little House on the Prairie, you'll love this and the other four titles in the "beloved Mitford series." This is the kind of reading that diehard nonfiction readers scoff at: too soft, too sweet. But don't we all deserve to be touched by an angel once in a while? The Mitford series centers on Father Tim, an aging priest who ministers to the small by lively congregation of the Lord's Chapel. He is by turns fussy, funny, and faithful (the kind of faith that is simply there, not overdone, just a part of daily life). And Karon's gift as a writer is that she allows his story to unfold. We discover the characters and the subplots without the heavy hand of a writer who wants to ensure that we "get the message," and we're delighted in the process. Even if your usual bedtime fare is A Brief History of Time, I encourage you to visit this little town for a while. You'll come away enriched.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A worthy addition to a beautiful series. 12. März 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
There is no letdown in this fourth Mitford book. Those who have read the others will love this one. However, if you have not read the others, I highly recommend that you get the first, "At Home in Mitford," and read them all in sequence. If anyone thinks that Karon's novels are strictly women's literature, I disagree. As a male myself, I find the masculine characters and their dialogue completely believable. The overall tone of the series is warm and uplifting, with a delightful understated humor, but the writing is not unrealistically syrupy. There is a strong religious undertone, since the main character is a priest, but the style is never preachy. The author has a finely balanced approach to every situation that the plots touch. I am hoping that there is another Mitford novel in progress.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A story of the heart to the heart! 14. Januar 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Living in a small town myself I could give each character a face in this wonderful series(Mitford Years)by Jan Karon. After reading Home in Mitford, I went to check out A Light in the Window, the second of the series, and found the book missing from the local library. I found out my neighbor had it and begged her to please let me have it while she finished another book she was reading. You can do this in a small town. The Mitford years are the most heartfelt and relaxing books I have ever read. Jan has a way of speaking to your heart and making you feel very much a part of Mitford. Jan please don't stop here, your books are absolutely the best ever. These books have renewed my faith in God and made me value my friends even more.
