Publisher's Summary

After thirty years of marriage, Wilson Lewis, son-in-law of Allie and Noah Calhoun (of The Notebook), is forced to admit that the romance has gone out of his marriage. Desperate to win back his wife, Jane's, heart, he must figure out how to make her fall in love with him... again.

Despite the shining example of Allie and Noah's marriage, Wilson is himself a man unable to easily express his emotions. A successful estate attorney, he has provided well for his family, but now, with his daughter's upcoming wedding, he is forced to face the fact that he and Jane have grown apart and he wonders if she even loves him anymore. Wilson is sure of one thing - his love for his wife has only deepened and intensified over the years. Now, with the memories of his in-laws' magnificent fifty-year love affair as his guide, Wilson struggles to find his way back into the heart of the woman he adores.

    "One of Sparks best. . ."

    I really enjoyed this book. I have enjoyed all of Sparks books but thought this one was one of his best. As another reviewer mentioned it was clean through and through, a nice change from alot of junk out there. I especially liked it because instead of finding new mates and ending a marriage, the characters work to make their marriage work. I thought it was inspiring and romantic.

    "The Wedding (Unabridged)"

    What a wonderful book, it made me laugh & cry. I love his writing. He makes me feel like I am right there seeing what everyone he could see while writing, the live oak trees with the Spanish moss on them. It is sad to think that a marriage can get to this state, but it is nice to see that something can be done about it if someone really cares. Everyone who is married should read this book. Maybe it would put a spark back in all of our marriages after reading it.

    "The Wedding by Nicholas Sparks"

    A very touching and moving story typical of Nicholas Sparks. Once you start you can't stop and the tears flow with the moving account of what love is all about. A great story! Don't miss it!

    "This was Great!"

    I'm not usually a Nicholas Sparks fan...his books are usually too sad. But, I LOVED this book. I enjoyed the male perspective, as this book is written as if the husband were talking...I enjoyed how this man tries to rebuild his marriage and the steps he was willing to take to get his wife to fall in love with him again. I was pleasantly surprised by the ending, and hope you will be too. If you've read Nicholas Sparks in the past and decided never again, try this one out, it's a great listen! I also really liked the narrator's voice, he pulls you into the story.

    "Ladies over 40 Romance Novel."

    This is a cute story for women who like romance novels, but are over 40. Now the draw is...will the husband that I married suddenly do a 180 and be Prince Charming now that the kids have left the roost? Well this is such a fantasy story.
    My husband and I started listening to this cause our 30th wedding anniversary is coming up. (He taught ME to be romantic.) We both got to thinking this was just too sappy. I finished listening to it, but was guessing the classic all-is-well outcome pretty early on.
    The nice thing about this book is that everyone is moral, a very nice diversion from the crap that is out their today.
    All in all if you are doing something else, this could be a nice sideline thing to listen to, but doesn't need your whole focus.

    I really liked this story. Heartwarming. I have to agree with another reviewer that this suits one that is older. A great story for a 50-something gal like me! Enjoy the surprise ending Ladies, but don't missed anything inbetween!

    Story
    "Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    After 20 years of marriage and all the natural stresses that come with it. This book was a pleasant yet accurate reminder of the beauty two people can share. I recommend it to the married and single alike. It is gripping, exciting, tender, and honest. Once you begin you will not put it down, so why not start today!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Noah was my favorite character because his gentle and quiet nature was really strong and loud with wisdom, passion, and love.


    What about Tom Wopat’s performance did you like?

    Loved it, his voice and inflections seem to accurately display each characters intentions with distracting for the overall theme. Could listen to him again and again all day long.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Please read today.

    "This was one of my favorites!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Wedding to be better than the print version?

    yes


    What other book might you compare The Wedding to and why?

    The Notebook, of course!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene when she realizes that the wedding is not for her daughter but, for her. I can visualize this so well. Her looking up the staircase and watching her daughters descend, noting that the one was not in her wedding gown. Turning and looking into Wilson's eyes for reassurance....oh I love it, love it, love it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    yes, both


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator was exceptional. He really kept me focused, his voice would lull me to sleep ( in a good way ). I don't think I could ever get tired of Nicolas Sparks.
