Part love story and part ghost story, this is an unforgettable New York Times bestseller about a science journalist and a North Carolina librarian who dare to believe in the impossible.
As a science journalist with a regular column in Scientific American, Jeremy Marsh specializes in debunking the supernatural-until he falls in love with the granddaughter of the town psychic.
When Jeremy receives a letter from Boone Creek, North Carolina, about ghostly lights appearing in a cemetery, he can't resist driving down to investigate. Here, in this tightly knit community, Lexie Darnell runs the town's library. Disappointed by past relationships, she is sure of one thing: her future is in Boone Creek, close to all the people she loves. From the moment Jeremy sets eyes on Lexie, he is intrigued. And Lexie, while hesitating to trust this outsider, finds herself thinking of him more than she cares to admit. Now, if they are to be together, Jeremy must do something he's never done before-take a giant leap of faith.
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks comes a love story about taking chances and following your heart. True Believer will make you believe in the miracle of love.
Charming, divorced Jeremy Marsh is a rising star. As a dashing, successful 37-year-old Manhattan science journalist, his skeptical scrutiny of ineffective antidepressants, cults and television clairvoyants has caught the eye of North Carolina restaurant owner Doris McClellan, who invites Jeremy to bucolic Boone Creek to scoop the story of eerie mystery lights appearing in an ancient cemetery. A diviner who can predict the sex of unborn babies, Doris suspects the lights are a ghostly curse. Her beautiful librarian granddaughter, Lexie Darnell, makes a lovely, if guarded, tour guide as Jeremy revs up his electromagnetic equipment for the ghost hunt. After witnessing the ethereal graveside lights, both grow closer, much to the chagrin of local deputy Rodney Hopper, who wants Lexie for himself. Guided by sage Doris and manipulated by meddling mayor Tom Gherkin, big-city Jeremy and smalltown Lexie find that trepidation about their differences somehow manages to bloom into love. Jeremy eventually uncovers the hidden truth behind the glowing graveyard fog and departs the lush gothic environs for New York. Can love bridge the gap? Sparks (The Wedding) delivers another shrink-wrapped, reliably uncomplicated romantic confection that's light as air, smooth as silk and gloriously sweet.
Another beautiful love storu
All his stories are so different and in such intricate detail while keeping it a love story.
I have listened to MANY Nicholas Sparks’ books and this one is not good at all. I am in chapter 8 and can’t wait for it to end. The characters are boring and not credible (flat to say the least). While Nicholas Sparks has been one of my favorite, go to authors in the past, I will think twice before purchasing the next one. (After reading some of the other reviews, I wonder am I even listening to the same book). I will keeping listening to the entire book because I keep hoping it will get better. So disappointed!
Great Story! >_<
This was the first Nicholas Sparks book I ever read. It all started 11 years ago when I was in 10th grade. I remember my close friend and I were trying to rock,paper, scissor to determine who would get to read it first in the library (she won of course). I waited patiently for her to finish. When it was finally my turn, it was then I knew I had just fallen in love with Nicholas Sparks. It didn’t occur to me til later that Nicholas Sparks is also the author for A Walk To Remember and The Notebook, two of the best movies I ever watched. I’ve read other romantic novels but none that can move me like Nick’s. Forever grateful for his stories and forever grateful for this one.
