Book Review


Nancy loves glorious occasions and her Uncle Cal’s wedding is going to be a great occasion. Dawn, Uncle Cal’s fiance, has a fancy name so Nancy assumes that the wedding will also be fancy. She imagines staying in a hotel like a palace, spend time at beauty parlors, and dance at the reception. Unfortunately, the wedding is in the wilderness and Uncle Cal and Dawn don't want it to be traditional. How can it be the wedding of the century under those circumstances? Nancy manages to help add a little bit of fanciness and enjoy the wedding of the century even though things were different from what she imagined.
