Summary

There are times when destiny and love collide.

This story is one of them.

From the number one best-selling author of The Notebook and Two by Two comes an unforgettable tale of enduring love.

Hope Anderson is at a crossroads. After six years with her boyfriend, she is no longer sure what she wants, and when her father becomes ill she heads to her family's cottage at Sunset Beach in North Carolina to make some difficult decisions.

Tru Walls has been summoned across an ocean from where he was born and raised in Zimbabwe by a letter from a man claiming to be his father. In journeying to Sunset Beach, Tru hopes to unravel the mystery surrounding his mother's life, but the letter will lead him in an unexpected direction. 

When these two strangers' paths cross, their chance encounter sets in motion a heart-breaking story - one that will transcend decades, continents and the workings of fate.

Difficult to listen to but good story

The story was captivating right to the end. Unfortunately Sean Cameron Michael dropped his voice at the end of every sentence which meant that it just felt like he had not grasped the essence of the story - or maybe he always speaks like that! Very boring with no life. Vanessa Johansson had the sort of American accent that is quite strident to the British ear.
Having said that I persevered with the book for the sake of the story which I enjoyed immensely. I am a Nicholas Sparks fan and this one did not disappoint

Dreadful

I normally enjoy Nicholas Sparks but really disliked this story - it made me cringe to the extent I wouldn’t have wanted anyone to over hear it while I was listening to it. Worse by far however was the reading of the book. I felt in particular the male voice sounded like it was being read by a computer rather than a person, I’m sad to say.

Nicholas at his best.

A must read. Download it now. You won't regret it. Perhaps even better than The Notebook

Disappointed

I love this author. got all the books he's written. but this one feels like a summary of all the others, same patterns and events. Every cliche in the love story book is included in this narrative... Just wanted something less predictable. Feels like a rehash of other stories with the only original bit being the letter box that the story centres around somewhat. other than that the narative is pretty thin and predictable if you're a Nicholas Sparks fan...

Excellent

From the moment I started listening I was enthralled. Being a Rhodesian Imyself I could relate to Trews story about the amazing wildlife in Zimbabwe. Also the sadness and loss at the destruction of a beautiful country.
Both Tree and Hope's character's we're so well defined, two people from such different backgrounds. I felt as if I knew them both personally. A delightful book. Was very sad when it came to an end. Well written and narrated.

Great love story with an African twist ...

Love for children versus love for a spouse, who’s to say which was the right decision?

Guys like Tru are few and far between ... the epitome of one who embodies the virtue, grace. He’s the real star in the story ... ‘Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.’
