really liked it

Don't let the title fool you, it's not a sappy romance novel, this book really has substance. Written by Dorothy West, one of the Harlem Renaissance's great female authors, The Wedding shows the reader a point of view rarely represented in modern literature. Enjoyable read that really transports the reader into a different way of thinking; a thoughtful look into 1950's upper class African-American society that focuses on family, class and race. So many great aspects to this book-- definitely one to re-read on a rainy day.
