“There were a few things Jeremy Marsh was sure he’d never do: He’d never leave New York City, never give his heart away after barely surviving one failed marriage, and never become a parent. Now Jeremy is living in the tiny town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, engaged to the love of his life, Lexie Darnell, and anticipating the start of their family…”
The one word that I would use to describe this book would be spectacular. I don’t know were to even begin… This novel is a sequel to True Believer and is definitely a must read (I’d recommend reading True Believer beforehand so that you will have a better understanding of what is going on). Anyway, in this novel we get a glimpse of what happens after the “and they lived happily ever after.” We all know that the only real happy ever afters occur in Disney movies. Our happy ever afters are interrupted by reality. Well, in this novel, we get to see some of the problems that couples face after they declare their love for each other and after they start their lives together. During this book not only will you experience the same emotions that this couple faces, but you’ll feel as though it was you who was going through those emotions. This book took me a little over a day to read and I’ll be honest, I cried. The biggest hurdle that Jeremy faced in this story was heart-wrenching. I don’t want to give away the ending but I will say one thing, if you have ever really cared about someone then you will, without a doubt, sympathize with Jeremy. This is undoubtedly one of Nicholas Sparks’ best novels.
