Weddings and Wills: Come Rain or Shine by Tricia Stringer

Weddings and Wills: Come Rain or Shine by Tricia Stringer

Weddings, wills from long ago, long lost relatives, babies and bushfires…whoever said country life is boring has never read Come Rain or Shine, the latest engrossing rural romance from bestselling author, Tricia Stringer.  

Some readers will already know Paula and Dan from A Chance of Stormy Weather, but Come Rain or Shine works as a great stand-alone story as well. It’s been nearly a year since ex-Sydney girl Paula married sheep farmer Dan. She’s now pregnant with their longed-for first child, and coming to grips with life on the farm. She can drive the tray top, feed the shearers, move the sheep, and is running her accountancy business from home – she’s even convinced Dan’s aunt to let her take over their own farm books. Life is full-on but happy, and a baby, Paula thinks, will make things complete.

Recently though, Dan’s been distant and preoccupied, and Paula can’t shake the feeling that he’s not telling her everything. Why is there mystery surrounding his father’s will, and why does the lawyer keep calling? And does it matter whether their baby is a boy or a girl as long as it’s healthy? Secrets will be revealed as terrifying bushfires engulf the surrounding country, secrets that make Paula question herself and force her to realise what is most important.

Thanks to a childhood spent growing up on a farm in South Australia, Tricia Stringer’s writing has a stamp of authenticity that strikes a chord with readers. After a brief stint being schooled in the city and undertaking teacher training, the popular author returned to the land she loves and has lived in rural communities ever since. This first-hand experience of modern day farming, of the hard work and the heart-breaking challenges, enhance her stories and make for a much richer reading experience.  

In Come Rain or Shine we meet families who have worked their land for generations, and whose connections run deep. Paula, a relative newcomer to small town community life, takes readers on her emotional ups and downs as she tries to learn the ropes and adapt to a whole new life.  

There’s intrigue, high drama and moments that will melt your heart in this delightful weekend read. Above all, Come Rain or Shine is the story of the love between two very different people. If you enjoy your romance with great characters, a plot that never stays still and beautiful countryside under big blue skies, then this book is for you.
