I'm going to analyze the book entitled "The wedding". This is a romance novel. The book was written by Nicholas Sparks. Nicholas Sparks is an American screenwriter and novelist, born on the 31st of December 1965 in Omaha, Nebraska. He was the middle of three children. He was raised as a Catholic. He is a very religious man. Sparks drew inspiration for his writing from his family hardships. All of his book have been New York Times bestsellers. His best-known story is "The Notebook". It was published in 1996 by Warner Books. The Wedding, written in 2003, is sequel to The Notebook . The Wedding is narrated by Wilson Lewis, the son-in-law of Noah and Allie Calhoun (the primary characters in The Notebook). The main Characters of the story are Wilson and Jane.
Wilson Lewis was an estate lawyer in New Bern. He had never considered himself a sentimental man. He didn't lose himself in films or plays and he's never been a dreamer. He might not be sentimental, but he was not completely without emotions, and there were moments when he was struck by a deep sense of wonder. He enjoyed golfing and gardening on the weekends, preferred classical music, and read the newspaper every morning, He recognized that in the course of his marriage, he had been selfish and stubborn and as ignorant as a goldfish. Looking back, Wilson believed that if he had done one thing right, it had been to love Jane throughout their years together. He loved her then as much as he did the day they were married. Jane was once an elementary school teacher, she spent the majority of their married life raising three children. She ran both the household and their social life, and her proudest possessions are the photo albums that she carefully assembled as a visual history of their lives . Jane was outgoing and kind, with a natural empathy that endears her to others. She laughed easily and had a wide circle of friends. Jane had always displayed her emotions with childlike ease. When she's sad she cries' when she's happy she laughs. While Jane had been blessed with the most tender of hearts, in many ways she was stronger than Wilson. Jane did not regret their marriage. When they were together, Wilson listened to her in a way that made her feel like she was the only woman in the world. After thirty years, Wilson Lewis is forced to face a painful truth.

He has spent too little time at home and too much at the office. 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. So he decided to win Jane love back and turned to Noah for advice. He wanted to do something special for their 30th anniversary, but a couple of weeks before that date, their daughter Anna announced she had getting married. She wanted "something easy, like a justice of the peace at the courthouse and maybe dinner with the family". Jane wanted Anna to have a formal ceremony and reception—the kind of wedding she never had. Lewis strongly helped his wife and daughter in the wedding arrangements. He knew how important for Jane the old house, the house of Noah and Allie, that's why suggested to arrange wedding there. Jane agreed. He made great efforts to prepare the house for the wedding. During the wild week of planning and preparation Jane and Wilson grow closer with each passing day. A couple of days before the wedding, he arranged a romantic evening for Jane. This evening he decided to spend in the old house. When they entered the house, the candles flickered in the sudden draft. Jane stood in the doorway, staring into the living room.
