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.
