This is the continuation of the love story of small-town librarian Lexie Darnell and big-city science writer, the skeptical Jeremy Marsh. In the course of a whirlwind six weeks, Jeremy Marsh has done the impossible: he's found someone he wants to spend the rest of his life with, and he is going to be a father. All her life Lexie has wanted to raise a family in her hometown, the dying Boone Creek, North Carolina, and Jeremy is willing to sacrifice New York for her.
But as the weeks pass, Jeremy loses his writing touch, the money spent on buying and renovating their house seems more than they can spare, and Jeremy can't help but feel like Lexie is keeping things from him. His good friend Alvin keeps warning him that he's gone into this too fast, he barely even knows Lexie, he shouldn't throw his life away for her.
But doubtful friends are the least of their worries, it turns out. As their child's expected date of birth nears, complications arrive which could threaten their small family's happiness forever. Tragedy, acceptance, and joy combine in this sweet tearjerker.
I wasn't a huge fan of TRUE BELIEVER, the prequel, and AT FIRST SIGHT didn't leave a much better impression on me either, except for the ending.
