Publisher Description

A powerfully moving novel of love, loss, hope, and family from bestselling author James Patterson.
Katie Wilkinson has found her perfect man at last. He's a writer, a house painter, an original thinker - everything she's imagined she wanted in a partner. But one day, without explanation, he disappears from her life, leaving behind only a diary for her to read.
This diary is a love letter written by a new mother named Suzanne for her baby son, Nicholas. In it she pours out her heart about how she and the boy's father met, about her hopes for marriage and family, and about the unparalleled joy that having a baby has brought into her life.
As Katie reads this touching document, it becomes clear that the lover who has just left her is the husband and father in this young family. She reads on, filled with terror and hope, as she struggles to understand what has happened.
Written with James Patterson's perfect pitch for emotion and suspense, Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas captures beautifully the joys of a new family even as it builds to an overwhelmingly moving climax. This is an unforgettable love story, at once heartbreaking and full of hope.

What a tearjerker!

I have read so many James Patterson books & have so many more that I want to read. Yet nothing that I’ve read of his many, many books prepared me for his ability to reach right in & tug on each & every heartstring. I simply had to read it in one too short sitting. Mr. Patterson, you’ve surprised me again. And I thank you for it.

Predictable, boring

Disappointing. Forced myself to read the whole thing - and kind of want my money back. The end seemed like the author had 5 mins to write the ending - felt like he just gave up on the story. And the letters to Nick were super generic - what any mom would write to her son. Nothing special. Big disappointment!
