I loved the premise of this book with the bride’s late mother leaving behind a notebook of her wishes for her daughter’s wedding. I have always enjoyed the beach setting and the family dramatics in the books I have read by Elin Hilderbrand and this one did not disappoint. This was an enjoyable, light read with a great touch of emotion. It was touching that the daughter was adamant on following her mother’s wishes for the wedding and that the family respected it.
The Carmichaels and the 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.
