The book wasn't what I expected. When they say short stories, they mean really short stories. This would be good reading at a doctors office or when you have just a quick moment to read. Some of the stories were great, others not so great. It is a good way to get a taste of an authors writing. You should discover 1 or 2 new authors for yourself.
I enjoyed this much better than True Believer, which has the same characters in it. Nicholas Sparks has a way of reaching right in & grabbing hold of your heart, & then twisting it with heart-ache. An ending I wasn't expecting at all. I really enjoyed the story, heart-breaking though it was. Jeremy Marsh returns to Boone Creek to marry Lexi, the woman he fell in love with while there. You will experience the ups & downs of their pregnancy, & the adjusting to each other lives. Great story.
I was skeptical about reading this book since it was written as letters & journal inputs. I ended up loving this book & could not put it down. You live thru all the ups & downs of these womens lives. Highly recommend this one!
I enjoyed this story. I did find it a little hard to get into in the very beginning. But I am glad I didn't give up on it. Turns into a great story of a baby left on a doorstep. And how she brings unexpected people together with a special bond. Also brings happiness to an older woman who had given up on ever finding it again.
