A Wedding in December by Anita Shreve


So much to say... a novel of surprising reunions, secrets, decisions and heartbreak.  I loved it, of course.  A group of old high school friends gather almost thirty years after high school for the wedding of their former classmates - reunited after years of being apart.  Shreve tells the story from several different points of view, which I love.  I also love how her stories don't seem to really end.  I always get the feeling that after her last written sentence, the ending is up to me, it's what I choose it to be.  Maybe that's why I love her writing so much.
