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.

    "The Wedding"

    Absolutely loved it. Cried a little at the end. Nicholas Sparks does not disappoint. The narrator was a smooth comfortable listen. Highly recommended.

    "Mr Sparks is a brilliant storyteller"

    I loved it as I do all his books. Another chance to visit the low county and the sweetness of his southern, romantic style.

    Love is what you make it. Quite simply. A mature lasting love story and the honest feelings of a husband.

    Listening to audio books help make the long commute into work tolerable. Favorites are Liane Moriarty and Jennifer Weiner.

    Story
    "Snoozefest!"

    This was my least favorite book that Sparks has written. Even though the narrator was good and the twist at the end was pleasing (done in true-Nicholas Sparks fashion), this book was hard to get through and very boring - a total snoozer! It dragged on and on. The narrator's thoughts were written in elaborate prose which I didn't think was natural. The most exciting parts about this book were references to Noah and Allie -- the narrator's in-laws.

    Hearing more of Noah - what he and Allie had together, and what their influence brought.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That Noah never stopped loving Allie, even in her death.


    What about Tom Wopat’s performance did you like?

    His voice was perfect as the character...talented storyteller.

    Story
    "Just Okay"
    Would you try another book from Nicholas Sparks and/or Tom Wopat?

    Maybe from Nicholas Sparks, but his endings are so dramatic. I loved this one all the way up until the end, and then it felt like the book was trying to outdo itself and my immediate response was, "is this really happening?" Disappointed in that.I liked Tom Wopat. I did not, however, like that he voiced the female characters as well. It was overdone and too weird to take seriously.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Just let the ending happen without the big drama of it being about the main couple instead of the daughter. It was just too grandiose.


    What three words best describe Tom Wopat’s voice?

    Deep, soothing, relaxing


    Did The Wedding inspire you to do anything?

    Remember this story when it comes to my own marriage. Things cannot be taken for granted and life goes by too quickly to get into routines and not make an effort. Every day and every action should be considered to make the most of a life you choose to create with someone.

    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    There should be two. A women and man .

    Story
    "Awesome!"
    Would you listen to The Wedding again? Why?

    I would listen to it again because it is such a sweet story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the honesty of Wilson.


    What does Tom Wopat bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    When I first started listening I wasn't sure I was going to like Tom Wopat's voice.... but by the end of the first chapter I was hooked. He was so good. I can't imagine anyone doing a better job.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Wedding and why?

    Wilson! I loved his honesty and sincere character.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was Nicholas Sparks at his best. I really enjoyed it. It was so hard to stop listening!
