Book Challenge - A Wedding in December

This the last of my five From The Stack book selection - all chosen from that ever growing pile of books that I have yet to read!

A Wedding in December is a rather interesting book, it weaves a number of stories together and although it does take a bit of work to remember which story belongs to who, it does all work together very well. There is even a story within a story as one of the characters, Agnes, is writing a story and this story-within-a-story is a good one too, I wanted to read more of this one!

There are plenty of surprises and revelations in this story, but I wont reveal any. What I will say is that it is an intriguing read with an appropriate ending (I sometimes feel that book endings don't quite work and can leave me dissatisfied) and I would recommend this book to anyone.

I read this when it first came out as Anita Shreve is one of my favourite authors. Have you read others by her? I like all I've read - in particular Fortune's Rocks and The Last Time they Met.

Hi - no I have not read any of Anita Shreve's other books, but I would look out for them now if I fancied something to read!
