A heartfelt fiction debut that will appeal to fans of Emily and
Jennifer Weiner, Cancel the Wedding follows
one woman’s journey to discover the secrets of her mother’s hidden past—and confront
her own uncertain future.
On the surface, Olivia has it all: a high-powered career, a
loving family, and a handsome fiancé. She even seems to be coming to terms with
her mother Jane’s premature death from cancer. But when Jane’s final wish is
revealed, Olivia and her elder sister Georgia are mystified. Their mother
rarely spoke of her rural Southern hometown, and never went back to visit—so
why does she want them to return to Huntley, Georgia, to scatter her ashes?
Jane’s request offers Olivia a temporary escape from the
reality she’s long been denying: she hates her “dream” job, and she’s not
really sure she wants to marry her groom-to-be. With her fourteen-year-old
niece, Logan, riding shotgun, she heads South on a summer road trip looking for
answers about her mother.
As Olivia gets to know the town’s inhabitants, she begins to
peel back the secrets of her mother’s early life—truths that force her to
finally question her own future. But when Olivia is confronted with a tragedy
and finds an opportunity to right a terrible wrong, will it give her the
courage to accept her mother’s past—and say yes to her own desire to start
over? Download and start listening now!
