The Wedding Letters is a continuation of the story of the Cooper family that started in The Wednesday Letters. The Wedding Letters can stand on it's own, but it will be a more fulfilling read if you have read The Wednesday Letters first.
The story centers around the main characters, Noah Cooper and his future bride, Rachel. All of the characters are so wonderfully rich, and colorful. They remind you of your neighbors and family members, so you connect quickly with them. Previous readers of this series remember soon what they loved about the Cooper family, and also what they disliked about some of them. By all means, this is not a story about a perfect family, but I believe they don't exist. That would be boring to read about a family with no flaws. Jason writes his characters with enough flaws, that you root for them as they grow, learn, and sometimes change for the better.
I enjoyed reading about the concept of "The Wedding Letters". The fun part for me being a single, divorced women, is that I hopefully will get married again. I would love to follow this tradition the next time I get married. You don't have to be in your twenties to have a gift of Wedding Letters done for you. Down below I have a video showing what exactly The Wedding Letters Tradition is.
The Wedding Letters overall is a short, sweet read that most readers will enjoy.The main themes of love, forgiveness,and moving forward, will make up for some of the predictability in the storyline. This will not take away from the feeling of contentment and resolution felt at the end of the story. I truly love reading stories by Jason Wright.
The Wedding Letters was a 2011 Whitney Award Nominee in the General Fiction category.
