about

"Everyone wanted to believe that endless love was possible. She'd believed in it once, too, back when she was eighteen."

In the spring of 1984, high school students Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole fell deeply, irrevocably in love. Though they were from opposite sides of the tracks, their love for one another seemed to defy the realities of life in the small town of Oriental, North Carolina. But as the summer of their senior year came to a close, unforeseen events would tear the young couple apart, setting them on radically divergent paths.

Now, twenty-five years later, Amanda and Dawson are summoned back to Oriental for the funeral of Tuck Hostetler, the mentor who once gave shelter to their high school romance. Neither has lived the life they imagined . . . and neither can forget the passionate first love that forever changed their lives. As Amanda and Dawson carry out the instructions Tuck left behind for them, they realize that everything they thought they knew -- about Tuck, about themselves, and about the dreams they held dear -- was not as it seemed. Forced to confront painful memories, the two former lovers will discover undeniable truths about the choices they have made. And in the course of a single, searing weekend, they will ask of the living, and the dead:Can love truly rewrite the past?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heartwrenching I found this to be the best written book by Sparks, with poetic embellishment and acute descriptions along with the signature loyal, enduring, resilient love often demonstrated in this author's books. The ending left me disappointed. It was beautifully written but uncharacteristically sad and unexpected.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from One of the weaker Sparks novels I still appreciated this book and it did bring out some emotions in me while I was reading, but I definitely felt that it wasn't on par with the several other Nicholas Sparks novels I read. Still worth the read of you like Sparks' books.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lost Love Book was better than the movie, story of love lost, found, & lost again. The book full of lots of twist & turns. Would have liked a different ending. Reminds us to gab what is there & hold on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Nicolas Sparks Book Yet I have read many of Nicolas Sparks novels, however, this one is by far my favourite! The bond these two main characters share is heart wrenching! It does not take much for me to cry, but this book had me sobbing and feeling for the two. I hated the movie and thought it did not do the book justice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I have a soft spot for Nicholas Sparks, i've always enjoyed his novels, this one didn't disappoint had a hard time putting it down to go to bed the first night I started reading this novel finished it on the second day, I had to know the ending and what happened to the characters.
Date published: 2016-11-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't put it down Probably one of the most moving novels written by Sparks. I had my mind locked into the book everywhere I went for the longest time until I got myself to start a new novel. The ending, melted my heart and was NOT predictable at all. The movie is no where near as good as the original novel. I had to force myself to wait until I had finished the novel before watching the movie, because all i wanted to do was figure out how it all ends after all they have been through. I just couldn't read it fast enough, but I'm glad I read it all. An Amazing read indeed.
