Come Rain or Come Shine by Jan Karon A Review

 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?

In Come Rain or Come Shine, Jan Karon delivers the wedding that millions of Mitford fans have waited for. It’s a June day in the mountains, with more than a few creatures great and small, and you’re invited—because you’re family.

By the way, it’s a pretty casual affair, so come as you are and remember to bring a tissue or two. After all, what’s a good wedding without a good cry?

Jan Karon is the author of the bestselling series of twelve Mitford novels featuring Episcopal priest Father Timothy Kavanagh and the fictional village of Mitford, the most recent of which, Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good, has spent more than two months on the New York Times bestseller list. She is also the author of eleven other books, including a cookbook and several books for children. Karon lives in Charlottesville, Virginia.

  I just love books by Jan Karon and I look forward to each and every one of them. The only thing bad about them is I read them to fast and wish I could read a book like this all year. What a treat are books written by Jan Karon.
  In Come Rain or Come Shine we get to witness the life and marriage of Dooley and Lace. One we have waited for, for a very long time.
   Many surprises await you in this fabulous book. You will reacquaint yourself with old friends and make a couple of new ones. You will read about animals old and new.
  See if a wedding can be pulled off and be simple.
Come Rain or Come Shine will give you laughs, hugs and even get you through some tough places.
   It was so wonderful hearing how Dooley and Lace feel about things and get their thoughts and feelings out. They are so likable and loveable. Don’t worry you will still hear from all of your old favorites especially Father Tim and Cynthia. It’s just a beautiful, beautiful story full of so much love and happiness. This book will stay with me and be reread. Love Jan Karon’s series of Father Tim. Excellent read. If you have never read her books treat yourself with this series. Highly recommended.
