The stunning, New York Times bestselling 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, 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.… (mais)

Asnjë martesë nuk është perfekte. Por Wilson Lewis ka përpara syve të tij përjashtimin që vërteton rregullin: vjehrri i tij Noah Calhoun, historia prekëse e dashurisë së të cilit u tregua në "The Pages of Our Lives". Tani, në moshën e mesme dhe përballë perspektivës së dasmës së vajzës së tij, Wilson reflekton mbi marrëdhënien e tij me gruan e tij Jane. Kështu ai zbulon se ajo është e pakënaqur dhe për të gjithë është faji i saj. Tani ajo papritmas i duket e largët, ndoshta e paarritshme. Gjithçka që ai duhet të bëjë është të përdorë urtësinë e Noes për të rifituar Xhejnin dhe për të rizbuluar sharmin e ditëve të para. Një roman që tregon se si miqësia është një mundësi e vazhdueshme për të përjetuar magjinë e atij "normaliteti të jashtëzakonshëm" që është dashuria.

I'm a big Nicholas Sparks fan, so I may be somewhat biased as I review this book. THE WEDDING is the sequel to THE NOTEBOOK, the love story of Noah and Allie: a love that almost didn't happen. Now, in THE WEDDING, we meet the next two generations of family members, and a somewhat complex story is told.
Noah is now living at Creekside, where he and Allie had moved toward the end of her life. He spends his time feeding a lone female swan, distinguished by a dark patch of color on her chest. Noah feels that this is Allie come back to him, and his children feel that he's lost touch with the world. Noah, however, never gives up on his theory and insists that it is his dear beloved wife.
Noah and Allie's oldest daughter, Jane, is married to Wilson Lewis. They've been married for nearly 30 years and have raised three children, all of whom are now adults. Jane and Wilson's story is told in flashbacks, as Wilson remembers what brought him and Jane together all those years ago. The reason for his reflections, though, is that he knows Jane is very unhappy with their marriage. So unhappy, that she leaves town for a few weeks to spend with their son Joseph. She doesn't say exactly why she left, but Wilson knows she needs to get away to think things over.
In the meantime, their oldest daughter Anna has announced that she and her boyfriend Keith plan to be married in a few weeks. She doesn't want anything fancy, and plans to marry at the justice of the peace. However, this is not what Jane wants for her daughter. Suddenly, Jane shows a new interest in life, and with the help of Wilson the two of them proceed to organize the best wedding any daughter ever had.
As the wedding plans take shape, Wilson keeps Noah up to date. During their visits, Wilson notes how Noah dotes on the swan, talking to her and sharing his thoughts with her. A few odd events almost convince Wilson that maybe this is indeed Allie reborn, but he always keeps these thoughts to himself. And all through these visits, Noah reminisces about his wife, while Wilson remembers his own first love Jane.
The title THE WEDDING is misleading, but this was Sparks' intention. Yes, the entire book is about the family getting ready for the big wedding, but the reader will realize by the end of the book that the story is much more than just THE WEDDING. The ending will surprise you, as it surprised some of the characters in the book. The story of the swan helps round out this tale of eternal love and may turn even the most cynical of persons into a romantic.

The wedding by Nicholas Sparks
We think of a wedding as a celebration with families and friends beginning with a wonderful ceremony and ending in lifelong promises. In Sickness and in health till death do us part some say on this grand occasion. The implicit part of a wedding is a forward looking bond between two people, recognized by family and friends, that will last forever.

During the life of a marriage many events occur in education, occupation, surprising events, and chance encounters that disrupt stability.

In the course of a marriage, especially a long one, there is a possibility of a separation that is not recognizable to friends and family or even the married couple themselves. You may see married couples in their later years with apparent difficulty finding anything to talk about, or even the necessity to communicate.

The married couple seems to be on separate paths or at least not as close as they were at the original wedding ceremony. But the bond of marriage becomes stronger over the many years as measured by the difficulty of adjustment to the loss of a spouse. Often the individual who seems so blasé during the partnership becomes so depressed that their lives are shortened by a broken heart. After the loss it is too late to cherish and preserve the close bond that they had.

In Sparks’The Wedding, the main characters, Wilson and Jane Lewis get a chance to re-awaken their bond because of emotions they experience when their daughter plans her own wedding ceremony. Is it too late after twenty plus years of marriage to rescue their purpose for living together? After all this time together Wilson and Jane cannot understand the reasons for drifting apart. Will the wedding of their daughter somehow make the future of their love clear to them?
The Wedding is a very good novel. ( )
