    Where the River Ends by Charles Martin (Nicnac63)
    Nicnac63: Charles Martin's writing style is similar to Nicholas Sparks'. Both display a great love story that stands the tests of hardships and time.

It's a very beautiful love story: boy meets girl, boy separates from girl, years pass, boy meets girl again -- throw in a load of pathos and you have a MUST READ story. Seriously, if you believe in love-everlasting, if you are even the least bit sentimental or romantic, you MUST READ this.

If you are not in the least moved after you read this, you quite possibly have a heart of stone hewn from the quarry of skepticism, cynicism and hurt bedrocked on a previously bad relationship -- you MUST READ this again. If you are apt to tear up when you read such stories (like me, who cried rivers the entire last quarter of the book), you MUST READ this with tissues handy. ( )

This book was full of excitement and love. It showed what true love is and that it is worth fighting for. It also showed that nobody is completely perfect. I wish this book never ended. 4Q5P I chose this book because I watched the movie and absolutely loved it. JanaP

First words
Who am I? And how, I wonder, will story end?
"I am nothing special; of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts, and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough."

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0446605239, Mass Market Paperback)

"Somewhere," muses Noah Calhoun, while sitting on his porch in the moonight, "there were people making love." The Notebook, a Southern-fried story of love-lost-and-found-again, revolves around a single time-honored romantic dilemma: will beautiful Allison Nelson stay with Mr. Respectability (to whom she happens to be engaged), or will she choose Noah, the romantic rascal she left so many years ago?
