4.5 Brilliant!!! manchester1987 | 25/03/2013 | See all manchester1987's reviews (1) This is the first Nicholas Sparks book I have read and I will definitely be reading more. I read the book in one day as I could not put it down. I have not seen the film yet, however, will be buying the DVD once it is released. I would most certainly recommend this book to anyone who loves a romantic story with a twist.
