very good; interesting twist - the wedding the mother plans is her restatement of vows, not her daughter's wedding at all ( )

I actually read this in light of Sparks's recently announced divorce, and that may color a bit what I thought of the book. I found it entertaining and a nice read, but I won't reread it. It bordered on the unrealistic, and when I do read romance, which isn't often, I don't want it to be "realistic" fantasy. I enjoyed the twist in the end and thought that Sparks did a good job with that. No spoilers, however. You'll have to read it for yourself. ( )

Have read all Sparks books and would love to see a movie based on this book....it as great!!!

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.

Knock me over with a feather!! -- I didn't anticipate the way the story would turn out. Chalk it up to great storytelling and/or a wonderful imagination, or perhaps that I was reading this right on the tails of having read Spark's very first novel, 'The Notebook', which was the 'prelude' to this, but I was totally emotionally drawn into this book. I won't begin to dissect my feelings and sentiments here, which perhaps were still raw from the previous book, other than to say, like its predecessor, (many) tissues were needed.

Note: 'The Notebook' and 'The Wedding' can be read independently, but reading in sequence, you'd be better able to follow the progression of, Noah Calhoun, the central character who spans both novels -- which adds a generational richness to the 'series', and understandably the need for all said tissue papers.

This reader believes in "happy ever after" and hence, this novel, very much like its predecessor, is a MUST READ! ( )

I enjoyed this one of Sparks' works very much. I could relate so much to the middle age couple who had lost the spark in their marriage and Wilson works for an entire year to plan a special even for their 30th anniversary. It's never too late to rekindle the romance. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446615862, Mass Market Paperback)

With The Notebook, A Walk to Remember, and his other beloved novels, #1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks has given voice to our deepest beliefs about the power of love. Now he brings us the long-awaited follow-up to The Notebook-a story of an ordinary man who goes to extraordinary lengths to win back the love of his life... After thirty years, Wilson Lewis is forced to face a painful truth: the romance has gone out of his marriage. His wife, Jane, has fallen out of love with him, and it is entirely his fault. Despite the shining example of his in-laws, Noah and Allie Calhoun, and their fifty-year love affair (originally recounted in The Notebook), Wilson himself is a man unable to express his true feelings. He has spent too little time at home and too much at the office, leaving the responsibility of raising their children to Jane. Now his daughter is about to marry, and his wife is thinking about leaving him. But if Wilson is sure of anything, it is this: His love for Jane has only grown over the years, and he will do everything he can to save their marriage. With the memories of Noah and Allie's inspiring life together as his guide, he vows to find a way to make his wife fall in love with him...all over again. In this powerfully moving tale of love lost, rediscovered, and renewed, Nicholas Sparks once again brings readers his unique insight into the only emotion that ultimately really matters.
