Seven years ago today, I married my best friend. A day filled with so much love, so much happiness, and so much promise - it was a perfect day! As I have mentioned, many times, I am a wedding book addict. I actually seek out books to read about weddings because they bring a smile to my face every single time. This year, for our anniversary, I decided to seek out a book that I have NOT read... harder than you would think. That book is by Madeleine Wickham (Sophie Kinsella), called The Wedding Girl.
The Wedding Girl by Madeleine Wickham
Summary (from chapters.ca):
At eighteen, in that first golden Oxford summer, Milly's best friends were Rupert and his American lover Allan. When Rupert suggested that she and Allan should get married, just so that Allan could stay in the country, it all seemed just a bit of fun - and to make it seem real she dressed up in cheap wedding finery and posed on the steps of the registry office for photographs.
Ten years later, Milly is a very different person. Engaged to Simon - who is wealthy, serious, and believes her to be perfect - she is facing the biggest and most elaborate wedding imaginable. Her dreadful secret is locked away so securely she has almost persuaded herself that it doesn't exist - until, with only four days to go, her past catches up with her.
I have read ALL of Sophie Kinsella's novels but haven't delved into her alter-ego, Madeleine Wickham. If this book is even half as good, it will be a winner and likely start a whole new relationship! <3
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY Murray! You still make my heart sing! <3
