    I Loved This Book!!

    I didn;t want to put this book down, and hated to see it end. I've become a huge fan of Ms. Shreve, and look forward to reading the rest of her books. I love her style of writing, and the emotion that gets captured by her is incredible, and hanting at the same time. I would recommend this book for many reasons.

    Loved it!

    This was the first book I have read from this author and now I'm looking for more of her books. I couldn't stop reading it once I started. What a great book! At first I was irritated with the Innes story within a story, but then I couldn't get enough. I would definitely recommed! Mis- thanks for sending to me!

    Deep and thoughtful novel

    In the Berkshire Mountains, Massachusetts, Nora converted the large mansion, which she shared with her famous husband Carl the poet until he committed suicide to end the pain from throat cancer last year, into an inn. Six of her friends from the Kidd Academy in Maine gather here for the wedding of two of them the single mother of teen Bridget to her high school sweetheart Bill........... Harrison still hurts from what happened almost three decades ago in Maine though he is married with two sons. Agnes currently teaches history at the Academy and has kept a secret from her friends but relishes being able to say out loud the name of the man she loves, their English teacher Jim Mitchell. The bride has breast cancer and doubts about marrying while the groom never forgot his first love leaving his wife and daughter and alienating his family to be with Bridget. Rob and Jerry round out the magnificent seven who spend the weekend sharing what memories, regrets, and hopefully forgiveness that each needs................ A WEDDING IN DECEMBER is a well written character study that in some ways feels like a family drama as the seven former classmates attend the wedding of two of them while each ponders if they can regain paradise lost like Bill and Bridget are trying to do. Each protagonist is different so that the readers can appreciate the various personalities though much of the tale focuses on the interactions(past and present) between Harrison and Nora. In spite of the lack of action, fans of deep complex relationship dramas that cleverly look back at the past while dreaming of a future will want to read Anita Shreve¿s deep and thoughtful novel............

    A Great Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. While waiting for my preordered copy of 'Perish the Thought' by Lori Davis, I bought 'A Wedding in December' and I did not regret it. This captivating story has intriguing characters, a well thought out plot, and intense descriptions that make you feel like you are actually there. I strongly recommend this book.

    A page turner, difficult to put down.

    Set in the Birkshire mountains, this quaint Inn comes to life when a wedding is planned for two re-united lovers. The characters are unforgettable, clearly descriptive in present and past. I am sure you will love this book.
