To the Wedding

by John Berger - £9.99  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780747599395 | ISBN 10: 0747599394

A mother and father, estranged for years, are travelling across Europe to their daughter's wedding. Vibrant, beautiful Ninon has fallen in love with the young Italian Gino. She is twenty-three years old - and she is dying of AIDS.
 
As their wedding approaches, the story of Ninon and Gino unfolds. On their wedding day, Ninon will take off her shoes and dance with Gino: they will dance as if they will never tire; as if their happiness is eternal; as if death will never touch them.
 
To the Wedding is a novel of devastating heartache, soaring hope and above all, love that triumphs over death.
