My first thought before I read it was that sequels are never as good as the first. But I was wrong in this case!! I enjoyed this book just as much as the first!! It was romantic and just a "make you feel good" book! I love it and it's one of my favorites by Sparks!
This may be one of my favorite books by Nicholas Sparks. Great read.
This was the first book I read by Nicholas Sparks after seeing (and loving) the movie version of the Notebook. I've been hooked on his books ever since and don't think you can ever go wrong picking one up. I loved the chance this book gave to see what the results were of the beautiful love story in the Notebook in addition to its own moving story. I gave my mom a copy to read and would recommend this to any of my friends.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. How real relationships get to where they are, not by huge issues, but by slowly fading over years. What a great reminder to tell those we love that we love them.
First lets eliminate all the misconceptions about this book. Some people claim that they do not like the book because Noah (from "The Notebook") made the sequel and Allie did not. They also dislike how Noah and Allie died together at the end of "The Notebook" yet Noah is alive in the sequel and Allie is not. Yes, Noah makes the sequel and yes Noah and Allie died together in "The Notebook," but Noah's presence in this book adds to the storyline and it's romantic charm. This book is about a married couple, Jane and Wilson Lewis. Throughout their nearly thirty years of marriage Wilson had worked as an Estate Lawyer, leaving Jane to raise and take care of the children basically alone. Throughout the years Jane begins to be even more neglected by Wilson, which ultimately leaves them to lead almost separate lives after their children have grown and left home. Wilson finally wakes up and realizes how badly he's been treating his wife and not showing how much he still cares and loves her. Will Wilson be able to win the love of his life Jane back? Find out in this romantic story about a man who finally finds himself and maybe even the love that looked to be lost.
