A summer wedding stirs up trouble on both sides of the family in this beloved bestseller from "the queen of the summer novel" (People).

The Carmichaels and the Grahams have gathered on Nantucket for a happy occasion: a wedding that will unite their two families. Plans are being made according to the wishes of the bride's late mother, who left behind The Notebook: specific instructions for every detail of her youngest daughter's future nuptials. Everything should be falling into place for the beautiful event -- but in reality, things are falling apart.

While the couple-to-be are quite happy, their loved ones find their lives crumbling. In the days leading up to the wedding, love will be questioned, scandals will arise, and hearts will be broken and healed. Elin Hilderbrand takes readers on a touching journey in Beautiful Day -- into the heart of marriage, what it means to be faithful, and how we choose to honor our commitments.


  • The last page

    By mermzie
    I cared about everyone in this story. Except maybe Helen though I would have loved to see pics of her outfits. But the the last page of the notebook was perfect. It was true. It was written by one who has known a good marriage. It is true of mine of 32 years so I know. My best friend and gentle kind one at that.

    Very scattered, very selfish privileged people. Always enjoyed Jennifer Weiner but not this. Let’s get real.
  • Boring with annoying and predictable characters

    By new yorker 2019
    For some reason, I was so put off my the dead narcissistic mother’s notebook. So controlling and judgmental and out of date. I hated the main character Jenna and the fact that she could not make a single decision herself and was so naive and clueless. Frankly, it felt like the 1950s reading about this fool getting married when she lived in a bubble. I also was annoyed at her crispy-granola, pious liberal persona. The only interesting character was Margot and she even disappointed. I will prob move on to another author similar to what others say, reading this author is like reading the same boring, shallow, one dimensional book over and over again.
