The two couples could not be more unlike, especially in their present situations. Ira Levinson is 91 years old, injured and stranded, perhaps forever, after a car crash; yet comforted by visions of his beloved wife Ruth, who died nine years before. Not far away is Wake Forest senior Sophia Danko, enraptured head over heels with an equally enthralled cowboy named Luke. In his new cinematic novel, Nicholas Sparks weaves together the stories of these two completely different pairs as only he could. A certain bestseller published in simultaneous English and Spanish language editions. (P.S. Read it now; see it later: The Longest Ride is slated to be a film, due to be release on Valentine's Day weekend 2015).

This is one book that I never wanted to end; from the beginning to the end it was great. The story is based on a romance lasting over 60 years, and another just beginning. You will wonder what they in connection, although I thoroughly enjoyed Ira and Ruth’s long relationship, all of its twists and turns and great passion. When the story begins with Ira in a precarious position, he lost control of his car and has gone through the guide rail and hanging down a hill. The weather is horrible and he is badly injured, but with his life hanging by a thread, his beloved Ruth spends time with him. It appears he is delusional, but oh how wonderful the story is as they spend time with each other. Another young couple has a chance meeting at a rodeo. Luke is a bull rider, and Sophia is a senior at Wake Forest. To make a long story short, Luke becomes Sophia’s knight in shinning armor when he comes to her rescue as her former boyfriend is accosting her. You wonder what a rodeo feller and an art major will have in common, and how possibly can the two stories have any thing to do with each other. As the story unfolds, will be amazed, and love how these stories do finally meld together. One starts back prior to WWII and the lasting results that the war has on their relationship. How I loved being in that car with Ira and Ruth, here she has passed on, but she is scolding him. So sweet! He shares with us his mind pictures of Ruth throughout their lives, down to what she was wearing on that particular day. Coming off her break up Sophia is not ready for a new relationship, but meeting Luke seems to have changed that. Can it be real, or a rebound romance? While I love the spark between them, I kept waiting for something to happen to Luke. This book is a real page-turner, you will not be able to put it down until you are done and know the answers to a lot of questions. I received this book through Readers Favorite, and was not required to give a positive review.
