The bestselling love story behind the massive Hollywood film
Two couples. Two love stories. One epic tale.
Ninety-one-year-old Ira Levinson is in trouble. Struggling to stay conscious after a car crash, an image of his adored - and long-dead - wife Ruth appears. Urging him to hang on, she lovingly recounts the joys and sorrows of their life together - how they met, the dark days of WWII and its unrelenting effect on their families.
A few miles away, college student Sophia Danko's life is about to change. Recovering from a break-up, she meets the young, rugged Luke and is thrown into a world far removed from her privileged school life. Sophia sees a new and tantalising future for herself, but Luke is keeping a secret that could destroy it all.
Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples, separated by years and experience, whose lives are about to converge in the most unexpected - and shocking - of ways.
The new love story from the multi-million-copy bestselling author of The Notebook, The Lucky One and The Best of Me. Nicholas Sparks is one of the world's most beloved authors.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Nicholas Sparks’ gripping 17th novel weaves together two different love stories. Ira is an elderly widower struggling to stay alive after a car accident. As he reflects on his life story, we meet young lovers Luke and Sophia, who face their own daunting obstacles. It’s no surprise that The Longest Ride—like other Sparks bestsellers, including The Notebook and A Walk to Remember—has been made into a major film. While connecting the dots of how his compelling characters are related, Sparks wows us with unexpected twists and grand romantic gestures.
