I loved this novel and was the first Nicholas Sparks books I’ve read. I had read this one years ago and decided to reread and do a review because I loved this novel that much. I mean, one of my friends had recommended to me this and I ventured out to find this novel and several other Sparks books. This one was so good. I just don’t have other words to describe honestly other than one has to read for themselves. There is so much romance and enough drama to get the plot going. I couldn’t help but having to read the novel again even though I know what is going to happen, but it was worth the reread. The plot is so thick yet not too thick that the reader loses interest. There is perfect dialogue that is very natural and doesn’t feel forced as other romances I’ve read.
