The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks

In 1932, two North Carolina teenagers from opposite sides of the tracks fall in love. Spending one idyllic summer together in the small town of New Bern, Noah Calhoun and Allie Nelson do not meet again for 14 years. Noah has returned from WWII to restore the house of his dreams, having inherited a large sum of money. Allie, programmed by family and the "caste system of the South" to marry an ambitious, prosperous man, has become engaged to powerful attorney Lon Hammond. When she reads a newspaper story about Noah's restoration project, she shows up on his porch step, re-entering his life for two days. Will Allie leave Lon for Noah? This is one of the most unforgettable love story ever.

After reading A Walk To Remember I just had to read this. This is apparently one of his top novels. Let me just say that so far it is. But It was tough, The Notebook is one of my favorite movies and the book was really different. The movie added a ton of other parts to it so I didn't really expect on how different it was. But either way the book was great. I cried and smiled, this book was exceptionaly fabulous! I have Message in a Bottle sitting next to me and let me tell you the review will be on this blog real soon!

Read On!
