Title: The Wedding
Author: Nicholas Sparks
Genre: Fiction, Romance
Year of Publication: 2003
My Rating: 4/5
It’s summer so of course I had to indulge myself in a Nicholas Sparks romance..One must always have an exquisite feel-good book to read in the summer. I read this book fairly fast; when I first started, I thought to myself that it was too good to be true--the plot is like one you would find whilst watching “The Hallmark Channel”: the plot is in the title and nothing goes wrong that can’t be fixed within a few minutes. However, once I finished the book I was actually smiling at 9:30PM craving to watch a romantic comedy that would add on to this feeling of elation.
The book is about a husband, Wilson, who believes his wife, Jane, has fallen out of love with him over the years because he has been an unintentional neglectful husband. Their daughter, Anna, gets engaged and wants to have their wedding sooner than Jane would like; the book shows how planning a wedding brings family together.
Overall, if you’re looking for a light read that’s too good to be true, pick this sucker up. This book has been a marvelous escape. I messaged my sister, Elizabeth, and we were gushing about the book. She thought so highly of this book, as well, having read it multiple times. Definitely read this ‘sequel’ to The Notebook. I don’t know if I’m biased because my family is preparing for a wedding as well, but goodness, it got me in some high spirits!
Elizabeth Pattershall says: The Wedding is an epic tale of both new love and old love. It's a story that will stay in your heart for years to come. It proves that, even at wit's end, love comes through in ways that you never imagined. This book is a must read for anyone who believes in hope, patience, determination, and the profound entity of unconditional love.
Elizabeth’s rating: 4.8/5
