The citizens of Henry Adams are starting to take bets-will Lily Fontaine and Trent July finally tie the knot? All they want is a nice, simple wedding, but their well-meaning neighbors are turning the no-fuss affair into the event of the decade. Bernadine, the town's fairy godmother, wants Lily to have a storybook wedding fit for a princess, and Lily's nine-year-old foster son is campaigning to be town preacher so he can officiate at the ceremony. Trouble multiplies when Trent is called on to help a new family move to town, not to mention Lily and Trent's task of blending their families together. With the bustle of the tight-knit, and often tightly wound, friends and family pushing them to the breaking point, the couple begins to wish they'd eloped. But, as they'll soon be reminded, happiness in Henry Adams is meant to be shared.
In Jenkins's delightful third Christian romance set in Henry Adams, Kans., a couple of high school sweethearts find their way back into each other's arms in middle age. Jenkins is a renowned proponent of foster parenting and adoption, and her protagonists are no different; before they reconnected, Trent July and Lily Fontaine both took in wayward boys, Amari and Devon, mischievous children who aren't sure they want to be brothers. When Trent and Lily reunite and decide to marry, everyone in the close-knit community of Henry Adams wants to help make the wedding day special, and with the support of Lily's wealthy boss, matriarch Bernadine Brown, and Rev. Paula Grant, a broad-minded Episcopalian minister, the lucky couple are well-bolstered to catch the curve balls that life keeps throwing their way. Jenkins's dialogue crackles, and the Scripture-infused story line will satisfy her many fans. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

1 . Change can be a Blessing
Posted June 13, 2011 by hcabm , New YorkThis story is an expansion of a wonderful series that is full of love and caring, The tittle reflects on the upcoming nuptials of Trent and Lilly. They were high school sweethearts that had drifted apart but have rekindled their romance and are now getting married.
This story also gives a more accurate picture of three of the children that were brought to the town of Henry Adams as foster children , Devon, Zoey and Amari. The revelations will have you in laughter and tears.
There are new people introduce to the town and this creates such a richness to the story. You also are given a glimpse of some underhanded dealings that might be going on behind the scenes.
All in all it is a story of change and growth, some times change is hard but if you adapt life is definitely worth living and the rewards can be tremendous.
