Despite the shining example of Allie and Noah's marriage, Wilson is himself a man unable to easily express his emotions. A successful estate attorney, he has provided well for his family, but now, with his daughter's upcoming wedding, he is forced to face the fact that he and Jane have grown apart and he wonders if she even loves him anymore. Wilson is sure of one thing - his love for his wife has only deepened and intensified over the years. Now, with the memories of his in-laws' magnificent fifty-year love affair as his guide, Wilson struggles to find his way back into the heart of the woman he adores.

"The wistful, reflective tone of Sparks' newest love story shines through in Wopat's competent telling." (Publishers Weekly)
Yes, you can't get any better than a Nicholas Sparks novel.
Any Nicholas Sparks book, thus far, all are top notch.
He has a way of bring each character to life.
It was a very moving story. Makes me want to do something special for my own anniversary.
Nicholas Sparks is a great author and I can only wish that he continues to write. I am looking forward to his next novel.
Listening to audio books help make the long commute into work tolerable. Favorites are Liane Moriarty and Jennifer Weiner.
This was my least favorite book that Sparks has written. Even though the narrator was good and the twist at the end was pleasing (done in true-Nicholas Sparks fashion), this book was hard to get through and very boring - a total snoozer! It dragged on and on. The narrator's thoughts were written in elaborate prose which I didn't think was natural. The most exciting parts about this book were references to Noah and Allie -- the narrator's in-laws.
Greater Seattle area real estate broker that loves to read...or listen.
Hearing more of Noah - what he and Allie had together, and what their influence brought.
That Noah never stopped loving Allie, even in her death.
His voice was perfect as the character...talented storyteller.
Maybe from Nicholas Sparks, but his endings are so dramatic. I loved this one all the way up until the end, and then it felt like the book was trying to outdo itself and my immediate response was, "is this really happening?" Disappointed in that.I liked Tom Wopat. I did not, however, like that he voiced the female characters as well. It was overdone and too weird to take seriously.
Just let the ending happen without the big drama of it being about the main couple instead of the daughter. It was just too grandiose.
Deep, soothing, relaxing
Remember this story when it comes to my own marriage. Things cannot be taken for granted and life goes by too quickly to get into routines and not make an effort. Every day and every action should be considered to make the most of a life you choose to create with someone.
I'm sorry I use my one free credit on this. I'm not even going to finish it .
There should be two. A women and man .
I would listen to it again because it is such a sweet story.
I loved the honesty of Wilson.
When I first started listening I wasn't sure I was going to like Tom Wopat's voice.... but by the end of the first chapter I was hooked. He was so good. I can't imagine anyone doing a better job.
Wilson! I loved his honesty and sincere character.
This book was Nicholas Sparks at his best. I really enjoyed it. It was so hard to stop listening!
