They were teenage sweethearts from opposite sides of the tracks - with a passion that would change their lives forever. But life would force them apart. Years later, the lines between past and present are about to slip....

Called back to their hometown for the funeral of the mentor who gave them shelter when they needed it most, they are faced with each other once again. Can true love ever rewrite the past?

The new epic love story from the multi-million copy best-selling author of The Notebook and The Last Song. Nicholas Sparks is one of the world's most beloved authors.

    "I think I would have enjoyed this more with a different narrator"

    It took me a while to really get into this book and I can't help but wonder whether I would have enjoyed it more had I read it as a book or listened to it read by a different narrator.

    I didn't enjoy the narrator's delivery. I'm not sure whether it was his voice, accent or just the way he read the female parts; possibly a combination of the three.

    But I did enjoy the last quarter of the book and, by then, I had come to care about the characters. I must say that I predicted the ending from a certain point.

    "Always love his books..."

    its a shame though that all his stories are becoming predicable. someone always has ti die, there always has to be a tragic ending.

    "It was like all other Spark's book - emotional!"

    It would have been nice if they had done a female voice for Amanda otherwise it was a good listen.
