A Wedding in December (Anita Shreve)

I liked this book. Not my favorite of her books (which is definitely Fortune's Rocks) but still good reading - especially for the plane.

It's about a group of high school friends, reuniting at the inn of one friend to celebrate the wedding of tow of their own who were high school sweethearts, reconnected at their 25 reunion.

This book tackles heavy themes - underage drinking, breast cancer, infidelity, artistic license, 9/11, etc... but it does so in a gentle way. Made me think a lot about my own life, especially when PB and I started dating in high school. Interesting characters and interesting take on what love really is.

Better than some, worse than some - overall a B.
