Once upon a Time on the Banks by Cathie Pelletier

It's 1969, the first day of spring in Mattagash, Maine. The river ice breaks, and soft scented breezes ripple respectfully over tidy McKinnon lawns and sneak across tire-strewn Gifford yards. The Mattagashers step outside, filled with cabin-fever dreams nurtured during the long, dark, frozen winter. They're bursting with excitement over the nuptials of Amy Joy Lawler and Jean Claude Cloutier- except, that is, for Amy's mother. She had taken immediately to her bed when she discovered Jean was a Frenchman from Watertown, and a Catholic, no less! As Amy carries on defiantly with her plans, her zany relatives arrive for the controversial ceremony. What follows is the most madcap wedding Mattagash has ever seen... or will likely see again.
