Goodreads: A summer wedding stirs up trouble on both sides of the family in this new novel from bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand.
The Carmichaels and Grahams have gathered on Nantucket for a wedding. Plans are being made according to the wishes of the bride’s late mother, who left behind The Notebook: specific instructions for every detail of her youngest daughter’s future nuptials. Everything should be falling into place for the beautiful event–but in reality, things are far from perfect.
While the couple-to-be are quite happy, their loved ones find their own lives crumbling. In the days leading up to the wedding, love will be questioned, scandals will arise, and hearts will be broken and healed. Elin Hilderbrand takes readers on a touching journey in BEAUTIFUL DAY–into the heart of marriage, what it means to be faithful, and how we choose to honor our commitments.
I enjoyed the perspective of the sister and father. I just wish I had more from the bride herself. There were many characters, but it was written in such a way that it was not overwhelming. I thought it might be hard to keep track of who was who and who was related to whom, but some how Hilderbrand wrote it so I kept everyone straight.
My only little complaint was that in the middle of the story, it seemed to be full of detailed descriptions of peoples clothes, and places that didn’t add to the rest of the story.
