Then, one day, a raging, record-breaking storm hits his small Southern town. Denise Holton, a young single mother, is driving through it when her car skids off the road. With her is her four-year-old son, Kyle. Unconscious and bleeding, she - not Kyle - is found. And when she wakes, the chilling truth becomes clear to both of them: Kyle is gone.
During the search for Kyle, the connection, the lifeline, between Taylor and Denise takes root. Taylor doesn't know that this rescue will lead him to the possibility of his own rescue from a life lived without love. That it will dare him to live life to the fullest by daring to love.

The narrators were not right for this book. Mary Beth Hurt made Denise sound like an old lady with a terrible southern accent. John Belford Lloyd made Taylor sound like an idiot. Don't even get me started on how each of them made the child sound. If it hadn't been for the fact that the storyline was interesting, I would have given up on the book immediately.
Taylor was a hero in more ways than one.

I did not read the print version but the emotion from the audio edition was great!
I am a Nicholas Sparks fan and all of his books are comparable - just wonderful.
