The Wedding

by Nicholas Sparks

 

A friend of mine told me to read this story because the ending is so unexpected. I have always loved Nicholas Sparks because his poignant tales that could make me cry. It seems tangible and real that you could’ve wished you’ll have the same story with of course, a different and happier endings (since he has the chance to break your heart at the end of his book).

 

After more than 20 years of marriage, Wilson Lewis, son-in-law of Allie and Noah Calhoun (from 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 tax attorney, he has provided well for his family, but now, with his daughter’s upcoming wedding and an impending empty nest, 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 own way back into the heart of the woman he adores.

 

The first part of the story is quite misleading, but this may be the author’s intention. Indeed, the whole book talks about the family getting ready for a big wedding. But the reader will realize at the end of the book that the plot is much more than just THE WEDDING. A charming and romantic novel is discovery of a man’s journey towards reinventing himself as a spouse and making precious memories along the way. This story is told in the first person voice of Wilson who tells the tale of eternal love that may turn the most cynical person into a romantic fool.
