This novel tells the love story of Landon Carter and Jamie Sullivan. Set in 1958 in North Carolina, Landon and Jamie both attend Beaufort High but are worlds apart. Jamie is the minister’s daughter, studies hard, and is shy. Landon, on the other hand, is mixed in with the ‘wrong crowd,’ and does not mind living on the edge despite the trouble he might land in. As these two fall unexpectedly in love, they are just as unexpectedly torn apart as tragedy strikes. Nevertheless, their time together is filled with small miracles and making each other’s dreams come true. Landon is drastically changed by Jamie Sullivan as he fulfills Jamie’s wish list. This story is heart wrenching, tragic, and beautiful.
I wanted to read this book because I am in love with the movie (I have lost count of the number of times I have seen it).
I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good love story, has ever been in love, or has some Kleenex at hand. It is one of my favorites.
I give it a 5***** rating.
