A Wedding Invitation By Alice J. Wisler

Samantha Bravencourt has received a wedding invitation for her friend’s wedding in North Carolina. She is looking forward to catching up with some of her college friends, but things don’t quite turn out the way she expected. However, she gets some unexpected surprises by running into other people from her past, people she never expected to see again, which take her back to her time spent in the Philippines teaching refugees before they came to the USA.
The story goes back and forth between 1993, the present day, and Samantha’s time in the Philippines in 1985 and 1986. Sometime it can get confusing which year the story is taking place, but that is my only “complaint” about the story. I enjoyed the story, especially it’s connection to the Philippines, after having traveled their myself a few years ago. The characters are all interesting and unique. I enjoyed getting to know the various people in Samantha’s life.
I received a copy of this book free from the author for the purpose of this review.
