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.

    "I loved this story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Wedding to be better than the print version?

    I enjoy listening to a book while working out. It makes the time go by faster.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It felt as if this could be a real person's story not just fiction.


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

    He's a good actor. He is superb with the male voices, but the ladies are a stretch for him.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved the suprise near the end. I wasn't expecting one that big. I don't want to give away the story, but this guy LOVES his wife.


    Any additional comments?

    A great book to stir those feelings you had in the beginning of your marriage if you've lost them. I feel good book.

    "Slow but Sweet"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story was just really slow. It was sweet in the end but I barely made it there.

    "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.
