We all know that Nicholas Sparks has an amazing way of writing a story, that is not only well written but also pulls at your heart strings. While reading this book I went through a roller coaster of emotions. I was happy, sad, angry, frustrated and I think at times I caught myself holding my breath to see what was coming next. This book is an amazing read, full of surprises that will keep you guessing until the very end.
