A Wedding in December by Anita Shreve

I really enjoyed reading A Wedding in December. Shreve's writing feels engaging and almost voyeuristic at times. A Wedding in December is filled with nostalgia, longing, and emotional context. Shreve explores the idea of what could've been if only... in a way that feels all too real. When a group of former classmates and their spouses reunite for a wedding, secrets are revealed, emotional histories are confronted, and the future however fleeting it may be is examined as the past is re-examined by the guests at the wedding. A Wedding in December is a great read for anyone who has ever wondered "what if" when thinking about the past!
