Another good story from Nicholas Sparks. I Loved the Characters it was like old home week . I also loved that the narrator did not try to make his voice sound like a lady when he had to read female parts.

I picked this novel to listen to because my Husband and I were going on a trip and I thought it might be something we both would like. It starts off a little confusing because there are so many characters to keep up with but once we figured out who was who we were sucked in completely. Almost hated getting to our destination because we had to put it on hold till we were headed home again.
It was also nice listening to a story with Male and female narrators. Wish audible was like that.

please tell me that there will be more to this story. I truly liked this story but it kind of left me hanging in the end so I am hoping there is a second on in the works.
I also enjoyed the narrator andI thought she did a great job with all the characters she had to be the voice of.

this is the second book on a row that I have listened to that told the story all the way through from beginning to end. Neither of them left me hanging. I know exactly what happened to all the characters and where they were headed. I hope this is a trend that just keeps on giving. I enjoyed listening to this story very much. the reader did an amazing job.
