From one of America's most beloved-and bestselling-storytellers, here is a novel about a man and a woman trying to find courage to make the biggest commitment of all...to love someone forever.
Taylor McAden was a risk taker. A volunteer firemn in the small southern town where he had lived his entire life, he was the first to take the plunge into a burning house to resue someone, the first to put his own safety on the line. However, there was one risk that Taylor seemed unable to take, and that was to let any woman into his heart. Then he met Denise Holden. The single mother of a little boy with severe disabilities, Denise had moved from Atlanta to the small town of Edenton, North Carolina where her grandparents had left her a house. She came to Edenton in an attempt to make ends meet while devoting herself to the care of her child. Falling in love was the last thing she intended.
A near fatal car crash brings Denise and Taylor together, and awakens in them felings long dormant. But before Taylor can fully welcome Denise and Kyle into his life, he must first take the ultimate risk-to look into his heart and his past, and see if it's not too late to take a chance on the future.

Captivating to the end

Yes, it was a love story and yes it was full of suspense, but the background story of teaching the young boy to talk was full of frustration, impatience and anger. The woman loved her son SO very much and wanted the best for him so she pushed him to his limit and succeeded! I didn't like her method, believing it was almost child abuse, so I was very shocked to read that the son of the author also had the same problem and Mr. Sparks used the same method to 'encourage' him to speak. I couldn't help but think there would have been a less traumatic way to deal with the situation. Great book though.

Another excellent book by Nicholas Sparks. Held my interest all the to the last page. Definitely recommend it and can't wait to start one of his next books.

Nice story, Easy and interesting read. I like how Sparks doesn't make his characters super rich. And as with his other books you never know who will die and who will live!

This was a good book. Not as good as I heard it was but I was still pretty satisfied =] I also realize I may have had high hopes after reading the Notebook and the Wedding ♥ But it was a good story, and easy to read.

This book it my favorite by Sparks. It was great how it took the time to show both the main characters views on love. Also it made me cry in some parts. Overall a masterpiece.
