Every April, when the wind blows from the sea and mingles with the scent of lilacs, Landon Carter remembers his last year at Beaufort High. It was 1958, and Landon had already dated a girl or two. He even swore that he had once been in love. Certainly the last person in town he thought he'd fall for was Jamie Sullivan, the daughter of the town's Baptist minister. 

A quiet girl who always carried a Bible with her schoolbooks, Jamie seemed content living in a world apart from the other teens. She took care of her widowed father, rescued hurt animals, and helped out at the local orphanage. No boy had ever asked her out. Landon would never have dreamed of it. 

Then a twist of fate made Jamie his partner for the homecoming dance, and Landon Carter's life would never be the same. Being with Jamie would show him the depths of the human heart and lead him to a decision so stunning it would send him irrevocably on the road to manhood...


Let me in one word get it straight up on point that this book is tragic.

This is my first Nicholas sparks book read oddly and it is so because i was always sceptical about me liking her books after i watched the Notebook movie which i didn't really enjoy as much though there is a huge amount of hype going around that book and movie.

However i was book browsing and i came across this book and though the title is real cheesy , i somehow strangely craved for some cheesy book to read when i am snug and tucked with my duvet since now the weather seems to finally seem pleasant here.

So i started reading the book and well I LIKED IT!!!

So the story basically circles two main characters
1. Landon carter
2. Jamie Sullivan

Landon is the rich guy from a happening section of class and Jamie is the duff , the quiet one.
It is the story of how their differences make way to something Landon would have never thought.
Love as they say can come from the most unexpected places and people.

I halfway figured what the ending would be like but when i reached the ending part it was as heart wrenching as it would have been if i wouldn't have guessed or figured out what the ending would have been like.
That is how well written this book is.

The story is very simple and the writing is easy and it is a perfect holiday read.
Though the book was a fountain full of emotions yet the characters were humorous and it made the book a great read rather than a punishment.
OK,Saying more about the story would take away the jest of it.

As much as i love happy endings and loathe sad endings i couldn't help but give it a 5 star rating because it deserved it.
Overall a lovely read.
