I loved this book. This is the first book I have read where the main characters didn't die by this author. I loved the story and thought it was so sweet. Great Nicholas Sparks read. ( )

I really enjoyed the story and was drawn in from the start. Was the story predictable? Yes but I enjoyed the story and the characters.

I'm looking forward to the movie. ( )

The whole 'the man finds a young woman's photo,it becomes his good luck charm,he feels he has a debt to pay & walks across country to find her' thing was quite fascinating for me.
Most of N.S novels are my favorite & I like them because he takes the whole concept of romance soulmates love to a deeper level and comes up with love so intense that the story and its characters stay with you long after you have finished reading.
“When a man is that special, you know it sooner than you think possible. You recognize it instinctively, and you're certain that no matter what happens, there will never be another one like him.”

“Why did you come here?
To find you.


“He was the toast to her butter."

Coming back to the book,I specially loved Zeus' (Logan's dog) role in the story and his relationship with Logan.
Logan's character was the most likable one,and Nicholas Sparks created a creep in Keith Clayton that I loathed!
Overall a lovely read.Recommend it to those who like their romance books intense and deep. ( )

Dedication
For Jamie Raab and Dennis Dalrymple

A year to remember...
and a year to forget.
I'm with you in spirit.
First words
Deputy Keith Clayton hadn't heard them approach, and up close, he didn't like the looks of them any more than he had the first time he'd seen them.
Quotations
Logan didn't deliver advice, instead he asked Ben what he thought he should do.
Based on her experience with men, most assume that when you talk to them about a problem or a dilema, they were expected to offer an opinion... even when all you really wanted was for them to listen!

He was disappointed that Ben hadn't turned out like he wanted him to. Instead of playing sports, he played violen. Clayton got lost in his thoughts so he didn't hear the phone ring. Ben answered it and gave it to Clayton. It was Claytons friend calling to tell him that he was at a bar and some man had a picture of his ex-wife and he was asking for her.
