I was pulled into this book right away with the idea of a lost child, but the story slows down within the first few chapters. At least it did for me. Once I got almost halfway, I was bored with the story and lost interest soon after. I never did finish this one. It probably ends the way I think it did, but I never will find out because I don't want to finish reading it.
Good book. I felt like I come to know all the people of Edenton and loved the way they helped each other through various life problems. Felt like part of the family.
Nicholas Sparks is one of my favorite writers, I always feel like I know his characters.
Even though the concepts of his novels may be a bit similar, this one is still an interesting page-turner you can't put down. I've always enjoyed reading his works, and this one's no disappointment even though parts are quite generic/predictable.
Four out of five.
