Summary
"Katherine Clark's The Harvard Bride begins with the lavish Mountain Brook wedding of Daniel Dobbs and Caroline Elmore, college sweethearts introduced in Clark's second novel, All the Governor's Men. Picking up where the previous novel ended, The Harvard Bride is a wry comedy of manners and portrait of a marriage unfolding against the backdrop of the return of native southerners, with their newly completed Ivy League educations, to the self-contained world of Mountain Brook's "Tiny Kingdom." As a newlywed Caroline struggles to find her bearings--unwilling to join the Junior League, look for a first house, contemplate motherhood, or even finish her thank-you notes. Even worse, she can't manage to fulfill her calling as a writer or accomplish anything else worthy of her Harvard degree. Meanwhile, Daniel's career as a first-year associate at a powerful law firm is going so well she hardly sees him. The most exciting aspect of the new bride's life is her handsome next-door neighbor, a writer himself and seemingly a kindred spirit. The reappearance of an old school friend--southern belle bombshell in hot pursuit of all eligible bachelors and potential real estate clients--only adds to Caroline's problems. In her desperation to forge an identity wholly her own, Caroline accepts an unexpected job offer from the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, forty-five minutes away from home. But just when she thinks she has succeeded in putting her personal and professional life together, her fragile new existence falls inexplicably apart. Also featuring the return of larger-than-life Brook-Haven headmaster Norman Laney, The Harvard Bride is at once a social satire and a richly nuanced love story. Caroline's journey of self-discovery takes readers from the jeweled heart of Mountain Brook and Bama's sorority row, into James Agee's Hale County--from the inner sanctums of southern belles into the Deep South rural farmland, where slaves and sharecroppers once toiled. In the South the past often contains the keys to understanding the present and inspiring a better future. As Caroline travels into the heart of the Alabama darkness from which she came, she suddenly comes face to face with what she needs to build a life on her own terms in her native land, if she can summon the courage to make a difficult choice and take a huge risk."--
