Ira Levinson is in trouble. At ninety-one years old, in poor health and alone in the world, he finds himself stranded on an isolated embankment after a car crash. Suffering multiple injuries, he struggles to retain consciousness until a blurry image materializes and comes into focus beside him: his beloved wife Ruth, who passed away nine years ago. Urging him to hang on, she forces him to remain alert by recounting the stories of their lifetime together – how they met, the precious paintings they collected together, the dark days of WWII and its effect on them and their families. Ira knows that Ruth can’t possibly be in the car with him, but he clings to her words and his memories, reliving the sorrows and everyday joys that defined their marriage.
A few miles away, at a local rodeo, a Wake Forest College senior’s life is about to change. Recovering from a recent break-up, Sophia Danko meets a young cowboy named Luke, who bears little resemblance to the privileged frat boys she has encountered at school. Through Luke, Sophia is introduced to a world in which the stakes of survival and success, ruin and reward -- even life and death – loom large in everyday life. As she and Luke fall in love, Sophia finds herself imagining a future far removed from her plans -- a future that Luke has the power to rewrite . . . if the secret he’s keeping doesn’t destroy it first.
Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common, and who are separated by years and experience. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.


“After all, if there is a heaven, we will find each other again, for there is no heaven without you.”


My thoughts of this book in a nutshell:

Yay, another Nicholas Sparks book! I am giddy with excitement. Let the romance begin!

Oh Mr. Sparks. You sure know how to pen the most perfect, swoon worthy characters. Can I have Luke for Christmas?



Nicholas Sparks! Why do you do this to me every time. Just when I thought I knew where the story was going, you flip the script!

Wait, WHAT?! OHMYGOD!


I didn't see that coming. I'm so happy!!

I can't believe it, a Nicholas Sparks book that didn't make me cry. Only one more chapter left!



Nevermind...

Whoa boy! That is pretty much the only way I can sum of this amazing, heart-warming novel. Nicholas Sparks, you did it again!

  1. I've learned to never read the ending of his books while in a public place. Sobbing uncontrollably on a transatlantic flight is most embarassing.

  2. This makes me so happy. Those .gif's (that's what they're called, right?!) Oh, I'm going to cry I'm giggling so much.

    By the way, not a big Nicholas Sparks fan. Really. Just not. But I'm definitely impressed at his emotional capacity. Sometimes suspicious that his wife really writes the stories, but, whatever. I don't really read them anyway ;)
