Within this inner circle of "blue-vein society", we witness the prominent Coles family as they gather for the wedding of their loveliest daughter, Shelby, who could have chosen from "a whole area of eligible men of the right colors and the right professions." Instead, she has fallen in love with and is about to be married to Meade Wyler, a white jazz musician from New York. A shock wave breaks over the Oval as its longtime members grapple with the changing face of its community.
With elegant, luminous prose, Dorothy West crowns her literary career by illustrating one family's struggle to break the shackles of race and class.

The wedding audio
What disappointed you about The Wedding?
This is an interesting book. But I DO NOT RECOMEND PURCHASING THE AUDIO VERSION. The audio skips SECTIONS AND CHAPTERS. Your better off reading it on your own.
Any additional comments?
They need to improve this, so that it can be a pleasant experience.
