DescriptionWith 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.

Reviews for The Wedding
First off, I like Nicholas Sparks books usually. I know many people scoff off at his name. But amongst the books of his that I have read, I have liked a few while others have been average. If you are into travel, you should read 'Three weeks with my brother', I really liked it.
About this book, it was good to begin with, and then it slowed down considerably in the middle. It's been quite some time since I picked up a Nicholas Sparks so I forgot how it read like. I have got so used to fast-paced books now that it felt real slow and I did want to stop reading. But well, that quirk of mine of not wanting to leave books unfinished, kept me at it. And I am glad I did.
This is a cute, emotional story about a husband wanting to make amends for being a lousy husband all his life. And if you are one of them, pick up this book now. It will teach you a few lessons. And no, it's not preachy.
It's just a cute story. One thing I like about the author's books is the emphasis on feelings and relationships and how it tugs at the heart.
When you reach the middle phase and feel like its chugging, I would ask you to go on, it pretty much makes it worth in the end.
In all, a beautiful story of love and life. Pick it up when you are in the mood for a slow, relaxed read. by Pragya

Wilson Lewis comes to the sad realization one day that after thirty years of marriage his wife, Jane, has fallen out of love with him. Jane's father, Noah, (this book is the sequel to THE NOTEBOOK) has always had respect for Wilson and Noah tells him stories of how he kept Allie from falling out of love with him.
Wilson is an estate lawyer and has spent very little time at home over the years. He realizes that Jane fell out of love with him when he forgot their twenty-ninth wedding anniversary.
Jane was a stay-at-home mom and raised their three kids -- Anna, Joseph, and Leslie.
Anna comes home one day to announce that she is getting married. Because of Noah's health and since her fiancÃ© is heading to college, they want to get married the next Saturday. Anna claims that she wants a small wedding at the courthouse, but her mom, of course, wants a big wedding, even though they only have eight days to put it together.
Saturday is Wilson and Jane's anniversary and Wilson wanted to do something really special this year so he took the week before and the week after their anniversary off from work. He hasn't taken that much time off in eight years!
With all the work to do with the wedding, Wilson has been making Jane dinner more often and trying to help out as much as he can. What will Wilson do to make his wife fall back in love with him, so that she doesn't leave him?
Coming from Nicholas Sparks, this book had a very high bar set for it. And this romantic love story went far beyond that! THE WEDDING is yet another wonderful romance from this amazing author!
