In the romantic tradition of Dear John, an injured Navy doctor meets two extremely important women whose secrets will change the course of his life in this #1 New York Times bestseller.
Trevor Benson never intended to move back to New Bern, North Carolina. But when a mortar blast outside the hospital where he worked sent him home from Afghanistan with devastating injuries, the dilapidated cabin he'd inherited from his grandfather seemed as good a place to regroup as any.
Tending to his grandfather's beloved beehives, Trevor isn't prepared to fall in love with a local . . . yet, from their very first encounter, Trevor feels a connection with deputy sheriff Natalie Masterson that he can't ignore. But even as she seems to reciprocate his feelings, she remains frustratingly distant, making Trevor wonder what she's hiding.
Further complicating his stay in New Bern is the presence of a sullen teenage girl, Callie, who lives in the trailer park down the road. Trevor hopes Callie can shed light on the mysterious circumstances of his grandfather's death, but she offers few clues—until a crisis triggers a race to uncover the true nature of Callie's past, one more intertwined with the elderly man's passing than Trevor could ever have imagined.
In his quest to unravel Natalie and Callie's secrets, Trevor will learn the true meaning of love and forgiveness . . . and that in life, to move forward, we must often return to the place where it all began.
Such a beautiful story
Extremely boring and not a believable love story.
This was a rough one to get through. I gave it two stars because the ending wrapped up nicely but I truly did not enjoy this book. Which is out of the ordinary for me with Nicholas Sparks. I almost DNF in the middle.
The two main character’s love story was not believable in any way. They fell for each other very quickly - after one or two meetings. Then how much the main character, Trevor, fell apart after they split was over the top. Who does that after knowing someone for such a short time?? Callie’s story was more interesting than Trevor’s. A bit shocking to me, didn’t see it coming, but definitely a better storyline.
A fine read but I wish I wouldn’t have purchased
I’ve read just about every Nicholas Sparks novel over the years, and it bums me to say that I feel the quality of them is declining with each one.
This story was short and sweet, but didn’t really need to be written.
