Ugh, the ending. I wanted it to turn out differently. ( )

You can always count on Nicholas Sparks to bring a book with emotion. Also, if you are a fan, you know the endings are always predictable, but we still love the ride!!! ( )

Loved it! Sparks never disappoints me. Great character development, quick moving yet twisting plot. One of favorite authors to read in vacation.

urante la primavera de 1984, cuando todavía iban al instituto, Amanda Collier y Dawson Cole se enamoraron para siempre. Aunque pertenecían a estratos sociales muy diferentes, el amor que sentían el uno por el otro parecía capaz de desafiar cualquier impedimento que la realidad en la vida de la pequeña ciudad de Oriental en Carolina del Norte quisiera ponerles por delante. Pero el verano después de su graduación una serie de acontecimientos imprevistos separaría a la pareja y los llevaría por caminos radicalmente opuestos.

Ahora, transcurridos veinticinco años, Amanda y Dawson tienen que volver a Oriental para el funeral de Tuck Hostetler el mentor que encubrió y protegió su historia de amor adolescente. Ninguno lleva la vida que imaginó… y ninguno de los dos ha podido olvidar el apasionado primer amor que cambió sus vidas para siempre.

Ambos deberán cumplir con la última voluntad de Tuck, una serie de encargos que deben realizar juntos y que les ayudará a darse cuenta de que todo aquello de los que estaban seguros (sus ideas sobre Tuck, sobre ellos mismos, sobre sus sueños más preciosos) no eran lo que parecía. Forzados a enfrentarse con dolorosos recuerdos, los dos amantes descubrirán verdades innegables sobre las opciones de su vida. En el cuso de un solo fin de semana, se preguntarán: ¿puede el amor reescribir el pasado? ( )
