Riassunto: Thousands of readers have come home to Mitford, the little town with the big heart, whose endearing and eccentric residents have become like family members. But now change is coming to the hamlet. Father Tim, the Episcopal rector, and his wife Cynthia are pondering retirement; a brash new mayoral candidate is calling for aggressive development; a suspicious realtor with plans for a health spa is eyeing the beloved house on the hill; and, worst of all, the Sweet Stuff Bakery may be closing. Meanwhile, ordinary people are leading the extraordinary lives that hundreds of thousands of readers have found so inviting and inspiring. Peopled with the lovable cast of characters familiar to so many, and peppered with plenty of new and colorful personalities, Out to Canaan is filled to the brim with the mysteries and miracles that make everyday life worth living, and that make Mitford one of the most memorable small towns in recent literature.
Sinossi: The Belgian Congo: A verdant area spanning the central regions of Africa - giant, somnambulant, beautiful and menacing. In 1960 the Belgian authorities, who had for years ruled the Congo with a stern hand, opted to grant independence to the country's hugely diverse population. On June 30, 1960, the Congo became independent. Within five days the country had fallen into four squabbling parts - the central government in the old capital of Leopoldville, a rebel movement in the eastern capital of Stanleyville, an independent republic of Kasai in the South West and an independent Katanga in the Southern regions with its capital at Elizabethville. United Nations troops were deployed in a 'peace keeping' role and after three wars succeeded in quashing the Katangese coup. But they had hardly finished their task when rebel 'sambas' in the Eastern Congo began sweeping across the Congo with the intention of capturing Leopoldville.
