Top critical review
Nice, enjoyable, but not gripping
on 17 July 2014
You always know what you're going to get with Nicholas Sparks, and he doesn't disappoint. He takes you right into the heart of a story and makes you feel you know everyone in it. And he writes well and easily. It's just that, with this book, I didn't especially love the characters. Purely personal--others will feel differently, I'm sure.
