"Come Rain or Shine" book 11 of the Mitford novels by Jan Karon tells the story of the wedding of Dooley and Lace, the constant duo of the previous novels. The two are putting together a wedding, graduating from Vet School (Dooley), taking over a practice and farm, as well as adopting a 4 year old boy. This seems like a lot and the two are handling it well.
This is the first of the Mitford books that I have read. Though Karon did a good job of keeping the reader abreast of what had happened, should they not have read the rest of the series, it is still hard to catch up when the series is on book 11. There were several times, that I had to either re-read or be confused for awhile till I figured out what was going on. As a single book, the writing is good and easy to read. The accents may be a little hard to pick out if you are a city slicker, but I liked them included. Gave the characters a more personal touch. I have heard from fellow bookaholics that the Mitford series is brilliant, so my recommendation would be to start at the beginning. If you have already read the previous 10, than you better get started on "Come Rain or Shine!" I received this book in exchange for a review from www.firsttoread.com.
