The sequel to the outstanding Notebook

The WeddingThe Wedding by Nicholas Sparks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After being recommended to watch The Notebook and enjoying it immensely I popped along to my local library to try and borrow the book, instead of finding The Notebook on the shelf I found this sequel and thought I’d give it a try.

This is a beautiful story about what it means to keep a marriage alive throughout the many ups and downs that life throws at us and the mundane routines of every day life. I found it an absolute joy to read and at many points found myself sympathetic to the needs of both lead characters and the battle between trying to provide financially for your family and the sacrifices that brings versus the need to be there for the memorable stuff like birthday parties, sports days and school plays.

Marriage is all about compromise and hard work and this book illustrates this perfectly – I was crying buckets at the end of this book. Beautiful and well written and I preferred it to The Notebook.
