Description

A high school rebel and a minister's daughter find strength in each other in this star-crossed tale of "young but everlasting love" (Chicago Sun-Times).

There was a time when the world was sweeter....when the women in Beaufort, North Carolina, wore dresses, and the men donned hats.... Every April, when the wind smells of both the sea and lilacs, Landon Carter remembers 1958, his last year at Beaufort High. Landon had dated a girl or two, and even once sworn that he'd been in love. Certainly the last person he thought he'd fall for was Jamie, the shy, almost ethereal daughter of the town's Baptist minister....Jamie, who was destined to show him the depths of the human heart-and the joy and pain of living. The inspiration for this novel came from Nicholas Sparks's sister: her life and her courage. From the internationally bestselling author Nicholas Sparks, comes his most moving story yet....

    Looking for another tear-jerker from Nicholas Sparks? Here it is! I love the movie, but this book is better! I’ll warn you of the one HUGE difference between the movie and the book: Most of the entire book takes place in the 1950s. Still, if you love the movie, you must read this book! Trust me!

    A sweet and sad story. I think I liked the movie a little more, but a good book for sure! Shorter than I expected it to be.

    A Walk to Remember, by Nicholas Sparks, follows Landon Carter and his story of learning more about himself and how he feels for the “nerdy” Jamie Sullivan. Landon is your average teenage boy. He only thinks about himself and his image. Thought the story and going to dances and helping in plays he first learns to tolerate spending time with Jamie, even if it embarrassed him. This later turns into a romance with a twist ending. In this coming of age story you can find drama mixed with romance. Now I have never been one for drama filled books but that all definitely depends on the person. Even for me who usually doesn't enjoy these types of books it was still a good read I didn’t want to put down. I would recommend it for those who enjoy a good romance book that's full of twists and new surprises. Overall I enjoyed reading this book and believe it is very well written and interesting! For a girl around this same age of the characters in the book, it makes me think and questions many things about life I probably wouldn't think to ask before, making it even harder to put down.

    As always I loved the book. Every single book I have read by him takes my breath away. You feel like a better person just from reading it.
