#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A twist you won’t see coming. A love story you’ll never forget. From the acclaimed author of The Notebook comes a powerful novel about risking everything for a dream—and whether it’s possible to leave the past behind.
We don’t always get to choose our paths in life; sometimes they choose us.


After fleeing an abusive husband with her six-year-old son, Tommie, Beverly is attempting to create a new life for them in a small town off the beaten track. Despite their newfound freedom, Beverly is constantly on guard: she creates a fake backstory, wears a disguise around town, and buries herself in DIY projects to stave off anxiety. But her stress only rises when Tommie insists he’d been hearing someone walking on the roof and calling his name late at night. With money running out and danger seemingly around every corner, she makes a desperate decision that will rewrite everything she knows to be true. . . .
Meanwhile, Colby Mills is on a heart-pounding journey of another kind. A failed musician, he now heads a small family farm in North Carolina. Seeking a rare break from his duties at home, he spontaneously takes a gig playing in a bar in St. Pete Beach, Florida, where he meets Morgan Lee—and his whole life is turned upside-down.
The daughter of affluent Chicago doctors, Morgan has graduated from a prestigious college music program with the ambition to move to Nashville and become a star. Romantically and musically, she and Colby complete each other in a way that neither has ever known.
In the course of a single unforgettable week, two young people will navigate the exhilarating heights and heartbreak of first love. Hundreds of miles away, Beverly will put her love for her young son to the test. And fate will draw all three people together in a web of life-altering connections . . . forcing each to wonder whether the dream of a better life can ever survive the weight of the past.

Enjoyed the Colby/Morgan story, but the Beverly story was way too long, slow & boring! The surprise ending; however, was nice.

Yet another Nicholas Sparks book that left me tearing up and with goosebumps. It was something I didn’t expect and I loved the entire thing! Didn’t necessarily love the narrators but didn’t dislike them either.

Loved this book, beginning is a little bit slow and feels like a school report with all the detailed research the author did. But is a beautiful love story.

At first I thought the book was going way too much into Beverly’s life but at the end it was so clear why. Beautiful story. Life is tough at times but we make it work.

A bit too wordy, especially the Beverly chapters. Other than that, story wiled away the miles while traveling.

Overall this was a good book, BUT it seemed to drag out for periods of time.

Quite disappointing. Colby’s story was utterly boring - as if I was sitting near 2 people at a restaurant listening to nothing talk.

I CANNOT believe this was Nicolas Sparks! Terrible book! I fast forwarded through the majority as it was sooooo repetitive and boring! I love a descriptive book that paints a picture, but this was almost like someone elaborating on every bristle of their hair brush. Hard no for me!! I love Nicolas Sparks so I’m glad this wasn’t the first one of his books I ever read or it would have been my last! Where is the refund button. Sorry Nick, but no.
