The Wedding is a simple and warm tale sure to please devoted fans of Nicholas Sparks’ sappy love stories and destined to pull some new readers into his web. I love the way he makes you fall for his simple story in a unique way.
THE NOTEBOOK CONNECT - SEQUEL
The Notebook (1996) by Nicholas sparks is one of my favorite books ever and is a bestseller too. It tells the story of how Noah and Allie fell in love one summer, lost touch for 14 years and then found each other again. Their love story is truly inspirational and touching, and, despite all the hardships they had to face, they still managed to keep the magic in their relationship alive. Things, instead, turned out differently for their daughter Jane and her husband Wilson, whose story is told in the Wedding, the long-awaited follow-up to The Notebook.
“Love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day.”
THE WEDDING STORY
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. 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. Wilson struggles to find his way back into the heart of the woman he adores.
“I guess what I'm trying to say is that you are there, in everything I am, in everything I've ever done, and looking back, I know that I should have told you know much you've always meant to me.”
Well this novel narrates a story of an ordinary person like you and me who gets busy in race of life - competing with work, colleagues, society, friends.. Daily needs and in mid of this mundane we lose the most important part of our life.. We forget to recognize, to show, to appreciate and love our family.
“But love, I’ve come to understand, is more than three words mumbled before bedtime. Love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day.”
