From Nicholas Sparks comes a novel that beautifully portrays how the emotion that can break your heart is sometimes the very one that heals it.

There are a few things Jeremy Marsh was sure he'd never do: he'd never leave New York City; never give his heart away again after barely surviving one failed marriage; and, most of all, never become a parent. Now, Jeremy is living in the tiny town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, married to Lexie Darnell, the love of his life, and anticipating the birth of their daughter. But just as his life seems to be settling into a blissful pattern, an unsettling and mysterious message re-opens old wounds and sets off a chain of events that will forever change the course of this young couple's marriage.

Dramatic, heartbreaking and surprising, this is a story about the love between a man and a woman and between a parent and a child. While the novel picks up the tale of Lexie Darnell and Jeremy Marsh that started in True Believer and will delight fans of that novel, it stands on its own as one of Nicholas Sparks's most deeply moving love stories.

This is a novel that can make anyone cry, including those who dont usually tear up. I recommend this book to anyone who has read any of Nicholas' other books.

Tear jerker as only Nicholas Sparks does. Read the book first
and then see the movie. One of my all time favorites.

Typical Sparks novel, where he has to have you in tears at the end of the book. I felt that my emotions were manipulated.

Nothing will ever match The Notebook. This was good, not great. I'd call it a typical Sparks novel. Good for a light, summer read.

I found this book a little boring. It is definitely not Nicholas Sparks' best book

I found this novel easy to read and entertaining, but it seemed to lack a certain authenticity. Compared to the other Nicholas Sparks novels I've read, this one felt less believable. To be fair, I'm not usually a romance-reader, but I wouldn't say this is the best one out there!

Good book, and yes make sure you read, "true believer", first, as this is the sequel. This was typical of Nicholas Sparks, and worth the read.
