Messages in bottles have been chronicled for centuries and include some of the most famous names in history. The most celebrated message ever sent concerned a young sailor in 1784, who was stranded on a coral reef, devoid of food and water after his boat was shipwrecked. Before his death, he carved the account of what had happened on a piece of wood, then sealed the message in a bottle. 150 years after it had been set afloat, it washed up in the small Japanese seaside village in which he had been born. This bottle had been dropped on a warm summer evening, however, it did not contain a message about a shipwreck, but it did contain a message that would change two people forever.

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.
