The reader is able to understand the perspectives of both Walker and Sarah because the narration alternates by chapters. Lori Copeland has the ability to grab the imaginations of her readers and string them ahead full force as she unravels her tale. Sarah and Walker make an interesting pair because of their paradoxical conflict and growing love. Their relationship is tested almost to the breaking point when Lucy shows up unexpectedly and demands Walker keeps his promise to her father and marry her. To make matters worse Sarah discovers that Walkers best friend is embezzling money from him. This climax is intense and memorable.
Throughout the story Sarah Livingston is desperate to have a family, just as Walker McKay is desperate for a wife. Despite the rocky beginning to their relationship, they marry. And thats not a spoiler because, unfortunately, all their problems are not finished with the vows. Eventually, the couple has to decide if the blessing of a working marriage is worth the dissolution of individual pride. The answer to this question involves much trouble and a look at both characters pasts. Sarahs character seems underdeveloped. Her personality and temper-tantrums are more suited to a younger girl. Walker also is juvenile in his attribution of all the negative characteristics of his fiancée to the new woman in his life. His lack of rationality in this area makes it difficult to identify with him. However, the ranch foreman and his wife serve as excellent foils for Walker and Sarah. Their wisdom balances out the stubbornness of the younger couple.
Walkers Wedding is an easy-to-read romance novel. The love story might be intriguing to younger girls; however, it lacks the emotional complexity that characterizes adult novels. Instead of developing important ideas, the plot jumps to and from dramatic scenes to add interest. A little more character development and complexity would have better captured an adult audience. There also was not a huge emphasis on the biblical perspective of marriage. Christianity was thrown in haphazardly almost as an afterthought. Nothing was racy or inappropriate, but neither was it an inspirational portrayal of the Christian walk. If you are looking for a quick romantic story, then Walkers Wedding is a good choice.
