Truncated from the back cover blurb: In tradition of his beloved first novel, The Notebook, Nicholas Sparks returns with the remarkable story of two couples whole lives intersect in profound and surprising ways.

Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common and who are separated by years and experience. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys.

This story is the tale of two separate, but eventually intertwined love stories. One is a lifelong love between Ira and Ruth; the other is a new love between Sophia and Luke.

Told from the alternating perspectives of 91-year-old Ira, college student Sophia, and rancher Luke, the story also mixes 20th century art with the realities of competitive bull riding, and it works. It may sound like an unlikely combination, yet the author pulls it off.

There are some moments that bring tears as well as moments that brings smiles (it wouldn't be a Sparks' novel without the necessity of grabbing a tissue or two). Always a poignant read.

Journal Entry 4 by dreammer at Batavia, Ohio USA on Tuesday, August 09, 2016
This came home in my wrap it up bookbox. I however have already read this and I loved this story. The book was so much better than the movie which I have also already seen. I will be seeing if my daughters and sister want to read this before I pass it along.
