Publisher's Summary

Award-winning author Beverly Jenkins has been named one of the Top Fifty Favorite African-American Writers of the 20th Century by the African American Literature Book Club (AALBC).

In Something Old, Something New, Lily Fontaine and Trent July are finally planning their wedding. But when well-intentioned neighbors - including Bernadine, the town fairy godmother - insist on inflating the intimate gathering into the event of the decade, Lily and Trent start wishing they'd simply eloped.

Outstanding!

This novel is such an outstanding listen that I purchased two of the other blessing novels. I have listened to all three at least two times each! I like the small Kansas town Bernadine Brown bought on eBay and turned it into a twenty priest century hotspot! I love all the characters even the ones who make me want to smack them. All of the adoptive children in this novel are precious and makes me wish there was a real life Bernadine Brown to rescue foster care children and give them a better chance in life. They stories are heartfelt and the characters make you want to live among them all! I really enjoyed this blessings novel.

Family and Friends

I laughed, I cried, I screamed but most of all I Loved it! I have been and and will always be a Beverly Jenkins fan this Blessing Series cements that sentiment. Miss Bev has put me in the middle of a town and it's people that I have a connection to and with, that says something about the power of her words and vision for Henry Adams, its residents, and her readers. Keep the Blessings coming ...
