“Rain on Your Wedding Day” is a modern Southern Gothic novel about one family’s tragic past and the consequences that it holds for their future.
Five years ago, Will Morse was arrested and charged with the murder of his youngest daughter Trixie. Will maintained his innocence and claimed that Trixie’s death was a suicide. Although Will escaped criminal charges, he lost his job as a Coca-Cola executive in the scandal. His wife, Danielle, left him, convinced that he had some role in Trixie’s death. Distraught and racked by grief and guilt, Will retreated to the safety and silence of a remote cabin in the North Georgia wilderness.
Will wants to rekindle his relationship with her daughter Alicia after she visits him over Christmas and lets him know that she’s getting married. Will fears that attending the wedding will bring up painful memories from his past and lead to conflict with his ex-wife and her family, who still blame him for Trixie’s death.
On the eve of Alicia’s wedding, Will must confront the guilt and shame that he feels and seek forgiveness for his actions.
“Rain on Your Wedding Day” is a poignant, moving tale about the need for forgiveness and redemption.
