I am a huge fan of Nicholas Sparks. I have read most of his novels and they never disappointment. Perhaps because he writes about real life relationships. Situations that so many people have lived through, been faced with, endured, etc. So when I realized that we were about to embark on an 8 hour flight to Rome and I had no reading material, I grabbed one of his latest works from the airport shop. The Best of Me. Maybe his best story yet.
Everyone believes in true love right?! Well Amanda Collier & Dawson Cole were no different. Except for the fact that the two were from extremely different families, one being wealthy the other being criminal, and basically forbidden to be with one another. They also say that if you love someone you should let them go and if they come back to you, then it was meant to be. Twenty-five years after Dawson let Amanda go, the two are reunited unexpectedly in what unfolds to be a weekend that will change both of their lives as well as those they love forever.
A tale of true love, life's tragedies, and fate at its finest, The Best of Me will touch your heart in ways no book ever has before. Nicholas Sparks has an incredible gift and a way with words which allows his readers to feel as the characters' lives unfold.
