A Walk to Remember

by Nicholas Sparks

A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks
Every April, when the wind blows from the sea and mingles with the scent of lilacs, Landon Carter remembers his last year at Beaufort High. It was 1958, and Landon had already dated a girl or two. He even swore that he had once been in love. Certainly the last person in town he thought he'd fall for was Jamie Sullivan, the daughter of the town's Baptist minister. A quiet girl who always carried a Bible with her schoolbooks, Jamie seemed content living in a world apart from the other teens. She took care of her widowed father, rescued hurt animals, and helped out at the local orphanage. No boy had ever asked her out. Landon would never have dreamed of it. Then a twist of fate made Jamie his partner for the homecoming dance, and Landon Carter's life would never be the same. Being with Jamie would show him the depths of the human heart and lead him to a decision so stunning it would send him irrevocably on the road to manhood.

This is the same guy who wrote The Notebook (which I have not read but have watched and it was SO good), it was pretty good but I expected to at least have a lump in my throat.  And although, I did enjoy it, it did not invoke any emotion. It was worth my time, but not making it onto my recommended reading list.

  1. Serious???? No emotion??? I balled that whole book.

    1. If I recall, you read this book while preggers. It was good - just not good enough to make me cry. It wasn't Time Travellers Wife good...

    2. PS I would have cried if she had recovered. :p


Ooh! Please write something. Please. I would LOVE to hear your comments!
