Publisher's Summary

There was a time when the world was sweeter...when the women in Beaufort, North Carolina, wore dresses, and the men donned hats.... Every April, when the wind smells of both the sea and lilacs, Landon Carter remembers 1958, his last year at Beaufort High. Landon had dated a girl or two, and even once sworn that he'd been in love. Certainly the last person he thought he'd fall for was Jamie, the shy, almost ethereal daughter of the town's Baptist minister...Jamie, who was destined to show him the depths of the human heart - and the joy and pain of living. The inspiration for this novel came from Nicholas Sparks's sister: her life and her courage. From the internationally best-selling author Nicholas Sparks, comes his most moving story yet....

Great, short read

Love the story, never gets old and warms the heart. Its one you can read between books to wipe your last book's thoughts to aside. ( what I do anyways)
Narrator brings out the story very well.

A tear

Seeing the movie first and then years later reading the book had my love for the movie grow fondly and now the book holds a place in my heart as well.

Get out the Kleenex

I never let myself watch the film since I was aware of the plot. I thought I could deal with the book...nope I was wrong. This story is just heartbreaking. I also wasn't very intrigued by the narrator.

Muller brings Sparks and raw emotion to already wonderful read!

I always loved this book. I’ve read repeatedly in English and Italian. I wept unabashedly on an airplane first time when I read the wailing begin in Jamie’s congregation. Never have I read such a tale of goodness and joy and sorrow and hope and miracles where the cynic in me didn’t whisper “Pollyanna” at some point. But Sparks’ tale is so real you are sure these folks really lived and these things happened just the way they are told. It helps that the protagonist is a hapless immature self-conscious rascal, yet you know he’s been transformed so it is a comfortable glimpse at our own weaknesses without rattling the cage so hard as to offend. Then you add that magical voice of Frank Muller and you have a work of art. I’ve only given one other book 5 stars straight across so this is a tough crowd.

I always enjoy Frank Muller the Narrator

I laughed out loud several times during the first half of the story but I don't like sad endings. Overall, it was a good solid story and Frank Muller ALWAYS adds enormously to anything he is narrating.
