The Wedding - Nicholas Sparks

This book is the story of a normal guy. That normal guy that forgets his wife's birthday anniversary, that works more than spends time with the family, that at times barely sees his children for days on end of so overloaded he is with work, the kind of father that wouldn't take longer than two or three days to go on a holiday because he can't be too far away from his clients and business. The husband that doesn't say "I love you" enough times, rarely buys his wife flowers and chocolate and tries to make up for these mistakes by bringing home some expensive present. 
Not a bad man, no - a hard working father and husband that supports his family - but not the most romantic or the "ideal husband" every woman dreams of having throughout her life. But in the end a good, normal man - the way most men are. 
And I am sure this is one of the main reasons I liked this book so much - because it describes a realistic family, something I could relate to while still bringing in the magic and romance to the story when this man tries to "make things right" and change to be a better father and husband.
It is a very beautiful story and the ending is very touching and turns the book in one you cannot forget easily. 

Book Review:

After thirty years of marriage, Wilson Lewis, son-in-law of Allie and Noah Calhoun (of The Notebook), is forced to admit that the romance has gone out of his marriage. Desperate to win back his wife, Jane’s, heart, he must figure out how to make her fall in love with him… again. Despite the shining example of Allie and Noah’s marriage, Wilson is himself a man unable to easily express his emotions. A successful estate attorney, he has provided well for his family, but now, with his daughter’s upcoming wedding, he is forced to face the fact that he and Jane have grown apart and he wonders if she even loves him anymore. Wilson is sure of one thing—his love for his wife has only deepened and intensified over the years. Now, with the memories of his in-laws’ magnificent fifty-year love affair as his guide, Wilson struggles to find his way back into the heart of the woman he adores.
