From beginning to end 'Message in a Bottle' will draw you in and keep you so connected to the story you can't put the book down. It's that good.

A film has been made of this romance by Nicholas Sparks (who clearly follows a recipe when he writes his books). A beautiful letter in a bottle leads a curious journalist to a beach town where she discovers and gets to know the author of the letter. The consequences of this are far-reaching. Sparks has the ability to take the simple, move it into the complicated and from there touch the emotions. When I read this book I eventually sat with a box of tissues next to me, tears pouring down my cheeks for the love lost that is depicted. The movie had the same effect on me.
