Rate this:
The stunning, New York Times bestselling follow-up to The Notebook --a story of an ordinary man who goes to extraordinary lengths to win back the love of his life.
After thirty years, Wilson Lewis is forced to face a painful truth: the romance has gone out of his marriage. His wife, Jane, has fallen out of love with him, and it is entirely his fault. Despite the shining example of his in-laws, Noah and Allie Calhoun, and their fifty-year love affair, Wilson himself is a man unable to express his true feelings. He has spent too little time at home and too much at the office, leaving the responsibility of raising their children to Jane. Now his daughter is about to marry, and his wife is thinking about leaving him. But if Wilson is sure of anything, it is this: His love for Jane has only grown over the years, and he will do everything he can to save their marriage. With the memories of Noah and Allie's inspiring life together as his guide, he vows to find a way to make his wife fall in love with him...all over again.

In this powerfully moving tale of love lost, rediscovered, and renewed, Nicholas Sparks once again brings readers his unique insight into the only emotion that ultimately really matters.

"I read this book to fulfil the goal read a book that contains a wedding. I was pleasantly suprised. Like the Mark of a good book it brought tears to my eyes. I absolutely loved the ending.

The love story of Noah and Allie continues with a whole new generation and another love story filled with emotion, regret, promise, and hope.

When I first read this story as a senior in college, I found it the perfect companion to 'The Notebook', and in some respects a happier story.

Lots of thoughtful ideas about love, but the author lies to us about the characters' thoughts throughout the story. It's a dishonest story designed to pull your heartstrings.

The perfect summer read. This is Nicholas Sparks at his finest. The rekindling of a long marriage's fire is no small task, but Wilson delivers, boy does he deliver.

As the sequel to Nicholas Sparks's The Notebook, I think that it's wonderful and amazing. To experience such a heartwarming love story is exactly what I needed!

This book is definitely one of the best by Nicholas Sparks. The couple in this book is struggling and falling "out of love" so it really is sad. However, there is hope! The love story is truly beautiful and the ending is such a surprise. I was satisfied :)

One of the few Nicholas Sparks novels with a happy ending:)

I only checked this out because it was the sequel to the Notebook. Which I absolutely loved! I loved how it incorporated more of Noah & Allie's story, and still kept some of their romance in it. I also loved the main story, which focuses on the relationship between their daughter and her husband. It's very sweet. And I was hoping that all along the wedding would be for her. Great book =]

Found this novel was talking about my life. 30 years married this November, 2 Daughters and 1 son. Enjoy every minute of this novel and on occasion brought tears to my eyes.

A good book that helps the reader gain perspective on a middle-aged male man in a long marriage. The book definitely gets better as it wears on. Perhaps a better read for those a little older?

"but love, i've come to understand, is more than three words mumbled before betime. Love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day."
