From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks comes a tender story of hope and joy; of sacrifice and forgiveness -- a moving reminder that love is possible at any age, at any time, and often comes when we least expect it. At forty-five, Adrienne Willis must rethink her entire life when her husband abandons her for a younger woman. Reeling with heartache and in search of a respite, she flees to the small coastal town of Rodanthe, North Carolina to tend to a friend's inn for the weekend. But when a major storm starts moving in, it appears that Adrienne's perfect getaway will be ruined -- until a guest named Paul Flanner arrives. At fifty-four, Paul has just sold his medical practice and come to Rodanthe to escape his own shattered past. Now, with the storm closing in, two wounded people will turn to each other for comfort -- and in one weekend set in motion feelings that will resonate throughout the rest of their lives.
3/5 stars (liked it)
A short quick book to read. I had forgotten to bring my book and have had this sitting at my desk so I thought I would read it. Like any other Nicholas Sparks book that I've read they follow the basic formula. A couple quickly fall madly in love, something happens to separate them and the endings aren't usually happily ever afters. Good book to read at the beach or when you're stuck inside in a snow storm.
