Publisher's Summary

Russell Green is about to discover the importance of unconditional love.

At 32, Russell Green has it all: a loving family, a successful career and a beautiful house. But underneath his seemingly perfect life, cracks are beginning to appear...and no one is more surprised than Russ when the life he took for granted is turned upside down.

Finding himself single-handedly caring for his young daughter, London, whilst trying to launch his own business, the only thing Russ knows is that he must shelter London from the consequences of these changes.

Then a chance encounter with an old flame tempts him to take a chance on love again, and with the support of his family, Russ finally comes to understand the true nature of unconditional love.

Slow to start

I found this story slow to start, took far to long to get to the main story and found the main character frustrating as no man is that slow to believe his wife is so innocent,(really!). The last two thirds of the story was most enjoyable and very like Mr Sparks previous stories

Not so interesting

A major part of this book is about the relationship between Russ and Vivian, it is the bottom stone of the whole story. Yet this part is a little boring and of cliche.

The chapters are not so intriguing. Story just went on and on, I nearly lost my interest towards the end. Marge's death is unpredictable and this is the only one chapter which brings me into tears or any emotions at all .

Lovely story and well read.....shame about the music

I have enjoyed his story and the end was a real shock. But there have been a few occasions where they suddenly bust out some music over the words..... strange and kind of distracting. I see what is trying to be done but it's so random!! Almost takes away from the moment. Weird!

Disappointing

Read many Nicholas Sparks books over the years and thoroughly enjoyed them. I can’t believe this was even written by the same author in all honesty. The plot was slow moving and lacklustre. The narrator made it even more dreary and then the strange snippets of music randomly popped out of nowhere which became awfully distracting. As I say, Nicholas Sparks has never failed to move me with his unique writing style and attention to detail, which is lacking on this occasion.

hooked

This story had me hooked from the beginning. Be prepared it is a tear jerker. The main characters a family who start out with everything seeming okay, Russ the devoted husband and father. Vivian who starts off the lovely wife turns and I found myself getting quite cross with her. London the daughter who is beautifully grown up for such a young girl. The story also includes the extended family. I found that I could not stop listening rooting for the characters in the story and longing for happiness of the each characters.

Very predictable and the music which suddenly starts in chapter 21 was really annoying

I have read a few of Nicolas Sparks books before and generally enjoyed them. But this one was a real disappointment. It felt like the emotion had to be forced, you knew it was an emotional part because the random music told you so. Not for me unfortunately.

Beautiful

A wonderful listen, whilst on holidays, however, it did make me cry ... so many different emotions and love stories. Hope this man keeps writing! If anyone knows of any others that write in the same way, could you please let me know ? Great stories

Frustrating slow and miserable

I tried to complete this book hoping it would improve but in the end I decided to give it a miss. I got over the halfway mark and was just getting more frustrated. It is very slow and rather depressing. Largely talking about a dysfunctional marriage. The lead character has no spine and many of the other characters are self centered and unpleasant. I was disappointed because I have enjoyed this author in the past.
I will not be recommending this book.

Music overpowering and a little distracting

Overall, a lovely moving story and good performance.
The music, although a nice inclusion, was too loud and overpowered the narrator.

A very different Sparks novel... Until the end.

Wasn't fussed about the music. Sometimes it didn't seem to fit and almost overpowered the reader.
Good story with great characterisation. I spent most of the novel angry 😡 towards the character of Vivian but be prepared for the last few chapters in which you'll need the tissues again 😭!

Heart warming

I’ve begun to be able to predict Nicholas Sparks novels, but I love them nonetheless. The story took a few wonderful twists and turns, and while I did anticipate the ending, the characters are certainly well written and thought out. Was definitely worth the listen.

blown away

A wonderfully written novel that was slow to begin with but became so engrossing. I was very sad that it came to an end. many pearls of wisdom, sad moments and happy moments. a brilliant performance by the narrator Ari Fliakos.

meandering, dull and predictable

I persisted with this book for 18 chapters waiting for something even remotely exciting or surprising to happen. My commute to work has never been so painfully slow.

Excellent

Loved this book. It's was funny, heart felt and very intense at times. It's a story that a lot of people go through during there lives. It brought out a lot of emotions. Highly recommend.
