You realize that a wedding isn’t all about you, but is really about family. At my second wedding, I thought more about my daughters’ happiness than my own. And I missed my grandparents, who were not around to see it. I realize how that at my first wedding, they understood worlds more than I did about what I was entering into with a wedding ceremony. The things I came to understand between my first and second weddings are what I explore with THE WEDDING SISTERS. (less)

Smart, funny social satire. A lot of books start out strong with the observations/humor and fade by the middle but this novel is strong and consistent throughout. Ending is satisfying -- I recommend.
