Summary

The love story to end all love stories from the internationally best-selling author Nicholas Sparks. Now a major motion picture starring Ryan Gosling (Golden Globe-winning and Oscar-nominated star of La La Land) and Rachel McAdams. 

How far can love endure? 

Noah Calhoun has just returned from World War Two. Attempting to escape the ghosts of battle, he tries to concentrate on restoring an old plantation home to its former glory. And yet he is haunted by images of the beautiful girl he met there 14 years before, a girl who captured his heart like no other.  

But when these distant memories begin to slide into reality, the passion that had lain still is ignited once more. Though so much is in their way, the miraculous force of their love refuses to fade.

Not what I expected

Weak story, very corny and not believable, I am debating whether to return it or finish listening,I lost interest about 1 hour in. and expected a lot more.
