The Book: Come Rain or Come Shine, by Jan Karon
The Blurb: Over the course of ten Mitford novels, fans have kept a special place in their hearts for Dooley Kavanagh, first seen in At Home in Mitford as a barefoot, freckle-faced boy in filthy overalls. Now, Father Tim Kavanagh’s adopted son has graduated from vet school and opened his own animal clinic. Since money will be tight for a while, maybe he and Lace Harper, his once and future soul mate, should keep their wedding simple. So the plan is to eliminate the cost of catering and do potluck. Ought to be fun. An old friend offers to bring his well-known country band. Gratis. And once mucked out, the barn works as a perfect venue for seating family and friends. Piece of cake, right?
The Babble: Lace and Dooley are getting married! And what a wedding it’s gonna be: small, simple, inviting only family and close friends. Why, it’s a potluck! How more simple can you get?! In Come Rain or Come Shine, Jan Karon once again weaves the magic of Mitford’s devoted ways with the chaos of true family and delivers another beautiful, perfect little book. After reading only a couple of hours and with tears of joy still in my eyes, I leave the world of Dooley and Lace’s wild, zany, picture-perfect wedding having shared all the love and joy that Mitford delivers best.
