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.

    "Wonderful surprises!"

    I have been a Nicholas Sparks fan ever since listening to the first recording of the Notebook with Campbell Scott as the narrator. This book is every bit as good as the Notebook. What woman wouldn't want a husband to take notice of how your lives are growing apart and one who would want to bring you back together? To me that is truly love, compassion and caring. This book includes Noah and his wisdom as well as introducing us to some new characters who only keep you guessing and laughing as this story builds to its wonderful conclusion. Truly an enjoyable listening journey

    "Good Book for a Woman"

    This book is somewhat predicatable, but well written and romantic. It probably would not appeal to a man, but is a very good read for a woman. There is no foul language or explicit sexual material in the book.

    "The Wedding"

    The Wedding was an amazing story. It was Romantic and surprising. From the Dad to the husband to the children, every generation was touching and romantic in their own way. I loved this book and will listen to it many times in my future.

    "schmaltzy"

    If you're in the mood for schmaltz or you enjoy reading books for way-over-the-edge romantics, "The Wedding" is pretty good. It's reasonably well-written; very well narrated. However, about half way through, I was so very tired of hearing about Saint Jane, martyr, who had no flaws, while Wilson was such a wretched husband for having worked hard for 30 years to give her everything she wanted. Without giving away the story's ending, he is able to win her back by spending a not-so-small fortune. Now, here's the second however: the ending was a throat-tightener, if not a tear-jerker. A happy ending, for even those who don't particularly care for schmaltz.

    "3 Hankys"

    This is Sparks at his best. But then we are in that age group. However, our 12 year old son enjoyed it too.
    We did listen to "The Notebook" first, and then followed it with this one the next weekend.
    If you enjoy clean romancess, keep a box of tissues handy and listen to both.

    "What is the appeal??"

    While I found the language in this book appealing, the story just didn't appeal to me. This is the second of Nickolas Sparks book I have heard, the first being the Notebook, which was abridged. I have to wonder if I would have liked this book more if it had been abridged since I feel I waisted a great deal of time listening to detail that seemed to be written just to pad the book.
    I didn't find myself caring enough about anyone to wonder what would happen to them next since I was pretty sure that nothing much would.
    The 180 turnaround to Prince Charming was contrived and unbelievable.
    Fortunately I love being read to and Tom Wopat seems a skilled reader so I persisted to the end and then wondered why I bothered.
