Featuring exclusive personal reflections on each title from the bestselling author’s 20 year career as well as details on special Two by Two music.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks returns with an emotionally powerful story of unconditional love, its challenges, its risks and most of all, its rewards.

At 32, Russell Green has it all: a stunning wife, a lovable six year-old daughter, a successful career as an advertising executive and an expansive home in Charlotte. He is living the dream, and his marriage to the bewitching Vivian is the center of that. But underneath the shiny surface of this perfect existence, fault lines are beginning to appear...and no one is more surprised than Russ when he finds every aspect of the life he took for granted turned upside down. In a matter of months, Russ finds himself without a job or wife, caring for his young daughter while struggling to adapt to a new and baffling reality. Throwing himself into the wilderness of single parenting, Russ embarks on a journey at once terrifying and rewarding-one that will test his abilities and his emotional resources beyond anything he ever imagined.

What happened to the Nicholas Sparks that I used to know and love? This book was negative, depressing and dragged on endlessly. I couldn't have been more surprised.

I buy this author's books as soon as they come out His books are usually such a beautiful and heart tugging read, but this book was depressing, long and a boring read. If he needed to get something off his chest, because this sounded personal and bitter, I hate that I had to pay for it!

Whats happened to Sparks? This was like reading how to live through a divorce from a mans point of view. Enough about London already! The wife sounded like she had her act together certainly wasnt portrayed as a bad person and the sister seemed to hold the guy together. That being said, wss this about the authors true story? Dont waste your money.

As an avid Nicholas Sparks reader, another wonderful work of life in its hardest and most difficult situations. I have experienced divorce with young children and loss of a daughter from cancer. Picking up the pieces and continuing to live is the hardest. This book had me bawling over and over.

I am a Nicholas Sparks fan but this was by far the worst. The story and characters were fine but it seemed to drag on endlessly, rehashing the same problems over and over.

I loved that Nicholas Sparks gave a different feel to this book than his others. Although there are some depressing parts this book is real. It was time for him to change it up a bit and this book exactly that. Another page turner and tear jerker!

I pre-ordered this book and it was surprisingly boring. He could have written this story in a chapter. It dragged on endlessly but I read it to the bitter end. Ended so sweet and nice but oh so predictable. The main character had no character or guts and neither did the story.

I really wanted to love this book as I am a Nicholas Sparks fan. I tried. I made it to page 93 thinking it would get better but I'm not sure I can go further. It drags and drags. It is like someone getting up and writing a book about every look move they make. BORING! How many chapters does it take to convince the reader that the main character is having marital problems? Please move on!!

This book was just ok. It lacked some creativity that he is capable of.

I am only on page 54 and being so disappointed with this book so far, I decided to check the reviews to see if I was the only one. I own EVERY book Nicholas Sparks has written and have LOVED every one of them ... except this one. As other reviewers have pointed out - it goes on endlessly and aside from being boring, the main character isn't even someone you can bring yourself to care about! He has no character, guts, personality and how can we as the reader even respect someone who loves and puts up with the wife he's got? Ugh! I'll probably finish it but, it's going to take a whole lot longer to read this one than any prior NS book I've read!

This book is unlike any other Sparks book I have read but it was as emotional and well written as ever. I could feel the character's emotions and became genuinely invested in his story. If it makes you care, it's a good book.

The only thing that made the book interesting was the relationship with his sister . If as a prior review suggested the premise is based on personal experience I'd have one suggestion . ......instead of moping and whining consider counseling. Good luck.

I absolutely love books by Nicholas Sparks but this one touched me personal in so many different ways. I had several moments to were I had to stop reading because my emotions would get the best of me. Very touching to me....thank you Mr. Sparks for another excellent book.

I know he got divorced a year or so ago but had read it was amicable this book makes it seem like maybe it wasn't as amicable as stated. Much darker than previously published books.
