At the Great Lakes Chapel and Hideaway Lodge, a wedding theme resort, 22-year-old April is marrying her Nashville boyfriend. Her family and friends - and a few strangers - have gathered to witness the events, and we see various aspects of the story through a series of narrators, learning a little more each time. Marriage is the theme of the book, and we get several takes on it, from the view of April's disapproving father to that of an uninvited guest who has just accidentally killed his wife. This is a sweet, melancholy story.
