A day in june


A young man attempts to save the economy of his depressed Vermont town with a contest that offers a free wedding. But when the winner who has lost her fiancé to the priesthood is urged by her hilarious grandmother to find a replacement, a web of deception forces three millennials and an entire town to re-examine their notions of faith and death, love and acceptance. Told with humour and pathos by award-winning author of Thieves Never Steal in the Rain.

Reading Group Guide for
A Day in June



“Labozzetta has a marvelous way of pulling the reader into the story. Her characters are wonderfully well written with delightfully deep dialogue and a fast-paced plot. From the laugh-out-loud sarcastic barbs between Chamber of Commerce rivals to Jason's existential ponderings about morality and mortality, the author handles both humorous and agonizingly sad situations with an insight into human nature that renders her characters fully rounded. Surprising plot twists keep readers interested right up until the very end. Part love story, part philosophical discourse, this one leaves an impression.”

A Day in June is both a comedy and a more serious look at the intersection of love and religious belief…”
