Divorced and disillusioned about relationships, Theresa Osborne is jogging when she finds a bottle on the beach. Inside is a letter of love and longing to "Catherine", signed simply "Garrett". Challenged by the mystery and pulled by emotions she doesn't fully understand, Theresa begins a search for this man that will change her life. What happens to her is unexpected, perhaps miraculous - an encounter that embraces all our hopes for finding someone special, for having a love that is timeless and everlasting.
Nicholas Sparks exquisitely chronicles the human heart. In his first best-selling novel, The Notebook, he created a testament to romantic love that touched listeners around the world. Now in this New York Times best-seller, he renews our faith in destiny, in the ability of lovers to find each other no matter where, no matter when.

I am an artist, lover of books. Love reading or listening to a good book. I live on the East Coast of Canada with an awesome ocean view.
Well written kept our interest to the end. The ending is too close to home for me.
Nicholas Sparks has gained popularity because his books are sentimental and sweet. This is no exception. If it were any sweeter the listener would have to start taking insulin.
It was just a little too saccharine for my taste.
The story started very well, got my interest specially for the narrator nice voice and pace. The male character was so boring ... and very unbelievable ... from mourning his dead wife till desperate in love with the main character. He was fickle... In a way there are plenty of people like that in real life. But for the sake being a good book story ... i just didn't like. At least the end to me made the story redeemable.
Again ... I don't like love first sight romances. I read plenty of that in YA books and I hate it ... however many of those books I can ignore the romance. But this is a romance book. To me wasn't for the narrator I'd have stopped right ... I hate fickle and desperate characters. I must confess I do like the movie versions of many of his books.
Yes I would. She did a great job and she sort of reminds me a little of Marguerite Gavin, which I like very much.
I'd have kept most of the book apart from the fickle moments of the male character... maybe let their story go a little longer and time to built their relationship the way the author did on The Notebook and Dear John
I chose it based on many reviews. It tears your heart at the end. Story overall is a bit too corny for my liking. The performance could have been a bit better but not bad.
