From Nicholas Sparks’ breakout hit, The Notebook—written when he was just 28 years old—to such blockbusters as Message in a Bottle, Dear John and Nights in Rodanthe, there’s no disputing that the international mega-bestselling author “knows how to tug at a reader's heartstrings” (Chicago Sun-Times). Now Sparks has returned with a new emotionally wrenching tale that will thrill his legions of devoted fans and keep them totally enthralled. In that vein, it’s a good time to listen to People magazine and “grab a Chardonnay” for another unforgettable “date with Sparks.”
The Best of Me is the heart-rending story of two former high school sweethearts from a small town—and from far opposite sides of the tracks. Now middle-aged, they’ve each taken wildly divergent paths, but neither has lived the life they always imagined…and neither can forget the passionate first love that forever altered their world. When they are both called back to their hometown for the funeral of the beloved mentor who long ago gave them shelter when they needed it most, they will be forced to confront the choices each has made and ask whether love can truly rewrite the past.

I would have liked a little more happiness for the main character but all in all it was a very good story, I cried a little but felt better after the ending.
I have purchased my last Nicholas Sparks book. This is a horrible book with graphic violence
and an incredibly sad ending. Not worth the time to read.
I liked this book. The Characters came across the page as being real. I was slightly disappointed at how this book ended.Not the usual " hold your breath" page turner, surprise ending.
