Is the transition from Father Tim to Lace and Dooley as main
characters changing the voice of the narrative that bothered me It just seemed changing the voice of the narrative bothered me It just seemed me that the story was superficial the characters flat this book seems to skim the surface of the characters emotions For example in the previous books the story of Pauline s apology would ave been much important given room to breathe of a lead up Here it seemed weak and watered down It wasn t given enough space for the reader to really connect to feel Pauline s struggle or Sammy s struggle A number of stories Folktales from the Moose of Burkina Faso hinted atere were nothing than a tease In the earlier books the subplots would Jeou p'ou t'ouan ou la chair comme tapis de prire have been fully realized satisfying Here I was left wanting And Lace There is little remnant there of the girl she used to be I was waiting for an outburst of Creek speak fromer something to let us know that she is still Lace Or some other connection to er past life Although er The Maze Runner : Book 1 history is talked about it is only that talked about There is little evidence of the Lace that we love Yes sheas grown into a wonderful woman and she talks a lot about Do No Harm her change and growth but we wouldave seen of this if it The Poseidon Adventure had been written as the earlier novels wereFather Tim s voice was missing He was there inserted just enough times to perhaps convince the readere was still there but How to Stop Drinking Alcohol and End Drug Addiction he and Cynthia were side stories I know it is time forim to move on I know it is time for Dooley and Lace to take over But Father Tim is not dead yetI know that because of time we are all getting older the story needs to be passed to Dooley and Lace But I feel cheated There are 8 years unaccounted for in this novel Sammy s story Father Brad s story Coot Oh and Barnabas Heartbreaking that we were not there with Father Tim at Barnabas s passing and Barnabas gets such backhanded treatmentI wonder if the publisher coerced Ms Karon to jump ahead to Dooley and Lace s story in order to cultivate a new a younger audience That s what it feels like to this reader If that s the case then Ms Karon s long time readers Le tour du monde en uatre vingts jours have been summarily dismissed along with many of the residents of MitfordBut we can t go back now we can only move forwardThis isn t a Mitford Novel It is a Meadowgate Novel The writing is weaker lacking the beautiful literary devices that Ms Karon usually wields so deftly and the plot lacks the depth of the previous novelsI enjoyed being at the wedding but I felt like a distant relation instead of part of the familyIf you love Mitford you will love this novel anyway And that s okay It is worth the read But it isn t typical Jan Karon This was an okay book for me It was a little too spiritual for me but the story I think was goodMy main complaint about the whole thing was the fact that the author would start a paragraph or a chapter and saye or she There were about a dozen or so characters in this story I The Iron Raven (The Iron Fey: Evenfall, had no idea whiche or she it was Or it would be Reverend There were two Reverends It was pretty frustrating At one point in the book the groom The Kindest Lie had two sets of parents there Then it would be mom or dad which one Say a name I obviously became VERY frustrated and because of that did not really enjoy the book as much as one typically could I would be readingaving absolutely no idea who I was reading about unless the author decided to give me some type of clue in the following paragraphs I gave this 25 stars because what I did get out of the book was a touching story although I am pretty sure I missed most of it because of skipping the parts that I didn t know who it was about And that surprises me because I know this author Uncivil Rites has written several other books I m not sure if its the editing or what but as this was my first byer I was not impressedThanks Penguin Putnam Group and Net Galley for this free e galley in exchange for an Ethnic Minorities and the Media Issues in Cultural and Media Studies honest review I m alwaysappy to venture back to Jan Karon s bestselling Mitford series where Father Tim Kavananah and Kraken: An Anatomy his wife Cynthia set about keeping the peace in this small well imagined Southern town of colorful and well loved characters This is book 13 and everyone sere reunited to celebrate the long awaited marriage of Dooley and Lace both of whom we ve watched grow up at Meadowgate Farm This is not a great literary work but as always Karon s books are something like comfort food for those of us who long for a kinder gentle life where the biggest problem of the day may be The Best I Can Be how to resist Ester Bollick s famously delicious Orange Marmalade cake or if too many folks will decide to bring deviled eggs to the potluck 35 stars. Right In Come Rain or Come Shine Jan Karon delivers the wedding that millions of Mitford fansave waited for It’s a June day in the mountains with 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. ,
