Divorced and disillusioned about relationships, Theresa Osborne is jogging when she finds a bottle on the beach. Inside is a letter of love and longing to “Catherine,” signed simply “Garrett.” Challenged by the mystery and pulled by emotions she doesn’t fully understand, Theresa begins a search for this man that will change her life. What happens to her is unexpected, perhaps miraculous-an encounter that embraces all our hopes for finding someone special, for having a love that is timeless and everlasting…. Nicholas Sparks exquisitely chronicles the human heart. In his first bestselling novel, The Notebook, he created a testament to romantic love that touched readers around the world. Now in this New York Times bestseller, he renews our faith in destiny, in the ability of lovers to find each other no matter where, no matter when…
This is my favorite Nicholas Sparks book So far. Ok So I’ve only read well listened to two of his boss So far but this is my new favorite. I loved every minute of it I mean this is such an amazingly sweet story. Theresa I’d again. Raising her son and having an amazing career. I’m so team single mom. (It’s cause I’m a single mom. Garrett is someone so lost in his grief that he has forgotten to live that is until Theresa. This whole book is just….. I don’t think I could even define this book. It made me fall in love with Garrett and Theresa’s Romance. I know I’ve said it before but I will say it again. I am not a romantic well at least I wasn’t until I was pulled into the stories of Nicholas Sparks. Romance has just never really been my thing don’t get me wrong I can fo people falling in love simply but there being other parts to the story but romance is like a foreign thing to me. This book once again makes me feel like romance is such a beautiful thing. This book just like the first Nicholas Sparks book I listened to made me believe in love and …. romance. I really don’t think I can find the words to say how much I enjoyed this book. I love how they simply fell in love. THere were no great complications when it came to their love. It just happened ok there was the whole long distance thing but anything worth having is worth fighting for am I right? The simple truth in it is that I love that Theresa curiosity got the best of her and that Garrett needed a ray of sunlight in the storm his life had become Theresa was the sunlight. I know im a little all over the place but this is a great novel. I think everyone should read it. I mean I cried smile and just well it was great..
- Umm Nicholas Sparks is talented and who doesn’t enjoy a talented author

“Nothing that’s worthwhile is ever easy. Remember that.”
“True love is rare, and it’s the only thing that gives life real meaning.”
“Without you in my arms, I feel an emptiness in my soul. I find myself searching the crowds for your face – I know it’s an impossibility, but I cannot help myself.”
“Someday you’ll find someone special again. People who’ve been in love once usually do. It’s in their nature.”
“This is not a goodbye, my darling, this is a thank you. Thank you for coming into my life and giving me joy, thank you for loving me and receiving my love in return. Thank you for the memories I will cherish forever. But most of all, thank you for showing me that there will come a time when I can eventually let you go.
I love you, T.”
“I know that somehow, every step I took since the moment I could walk was a step towards finding you.”
“If you simply ignored the feeling, you would never know what might happen, and in many ways that was worse than finding out in the first place. Because if you were wrong, you could go forward in your life without ever looking back over your shoulder and wondering what might have been.”
“I have come to realize that destiny can hurt a person as much as it can bless them, and I find myself wondering why–out of all the people in all the world I could ever have loved–I had to fall in love with someone who was taken away from me.”
