A Wedding in the Family – Annette Byford

I was drawn to this book as a mother of 2 daughters- 24 and 18. This book through mostly describes western weddings, the conflicts and the tensions and the feelings and emotions described are universal and that is what makes this book a worth read. he only difference between Indian and Western weddings is that in Indian weddings the bride and the groom have to be just there to get married, rest all is arranged, paid and decided by the families of both sides hence described as wedding of the families as Annette puts it in words.
But the emotions, feelings of loss and gain, feeling left out, scared that mothers fell is common to all. All these emotions and much more is put into right words by the author.
A good read.
