Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A twist you won’t see coming. A love story you’ll never forget.
 
From the acclaimed author of The Wish comes a powerful novel about risking everything for a dream—and whether it’s possible to leave the past behind.
 
ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: PopSugar

Colby Mills once felt destined for a musical career, until tragedy grounded his aspirations. Now the head of a small family farm in North Carolina, he spontaneously takes a gig playing at a bar in St. Pete Beach, Florida, seeking a rare break from his duties at home.
 
But when he meets Morgan Lee, his world is turned upside-down, making him wonder if the responsibilities he has shouldered need dictate his life forever. The daughter of affluent Chicago doctors, Morgan has graduated from a prestigious college music program with the ambition to move to Nashville and become a star. Romantically and musically, she and Colby complete each other in a way that neither has ever known.
 
While they are falling headlong in love, Beverly is on a heart-pounding journey of another kind. Fleeing an abusive husband with her six-year-old son, she is trying to piece together a life for them in a small town far off the beaten track. With money running out and danger seemingly around every corner, she makes a desperate decision that will rewrite everything she knows to be true.
 
In the course of a single unforgettable week, two young people will navigate the exhilarating heights and heartbreak of first love. Hundreds of miles away, Beverly will put her love for her young son to the test. And fate will draw all three people together in a web of life-altering connections . . . forcing each to wonder whether the dream of a better life can ever survive the weight of the past.

  • Worst Sparks book ever

    I’m a big fan. Have every one of his hardcover books in my library. But this one? The descriptions of clothing, food prep, social media, the music business, as well as mental and physical health issues read more like they were written by a teenager. Immensely disappointed.

    What a wonderful love story. Nicholas Sparks has done it again. Always need a box of tissues when your reading his stories.
  • Just meh.

    Cheesy. Characters I never really connected with. Sparks tried too hard to relate to Gen Z
  • Not a fan… :(

    This was a sub par book. I personally loved the musical references being a professional musician and music teacher but the storyline and plot I had a difficult time getting into. I was disappointed overall with this book. I have also found that Sparks novels over the past years just aren’t as quality and enjoyable as his original and older stories. I certainly hope he can do better going forward.
  • Good but not great

    As I read this, I was getting the “Noah and Allie” feels with Colby and Morgan and the “Katie” feels with Beverly. Each page turned was a little bit disappointing but also kinda interesting to see where the storyline was headed. Took me a while to read this. I typically fly through Spark’s books but this one, meh.
  • Disappointing

    It’s as though someone else wrote this book. Total waste of money and time.

    This one is very bad. I don’t think Nicholas Sparks cares anymore. It’s like he has a contract for a certain number of books and he’s just churning out complete crap.
  • Worth the Read

    Great Read, gives a good insight and awareness of metal health and how it develops/plays a role in real life situations And of course how love is always stronger than anything life throws your way.
  • Loved the book!
