Now, with the storm closing in, two wounded people will turn to each other for comfort – and in one weekend, set in motion feelings that will resonate through the rest of their lives”
REVIEW: I love Nicholas Sparks’ books, and always read them whenever I’m in need of either a cathartic cry; or just to prove to myself that romance still exists! I kind of needed help with both this week, so choosing this book was well-timed. I’d seen the film several years ago with my best friend, but I’d forgotten just how beautiful and emotionally destructive this story is! It’s difficult to review this properly without giving away too many of the plot twists and the ending, but, safe to say, it’s as heartbreaking as many other Sparks novels are! I highly recommend it – it’ll make you believe in happiness all over again.
