Last year, accusations of a torrid affair with a student cost Mark his teaching job and made the young couple into outcasts in their remote island town off the Lake Michigan coast.

Hilary Bradley is determined to prove that Mark is innocent, but she’s on a lonely, dangerous quest.

    Is there really such thing as a lucky charm? The hero of Nicholas Sparks's new novel believes he's found one in the form of a photograph of a smiling woman he's never met, but who he comes to believe holds the key to his destiny. The chain of events that leads to him possessing the photograph and finding the woman pictured in it is the stuff of love stories only a master such as Sparks can write.

    Amber says: "Very enjoyable!!!!"
    "Not so good"
    Overall

    This wasn't a "typical" story from Nicolas Sparks. I really disliked the end. He could have done so much more with this book. The narrator is hard to listen to--Guess I didn't like it!
