From one of America's most beloved-and bestselling-storytellers, here is a novel about a man and a woman trying to find courage to make the biggest commitment of all...to love someone forever. Taylor McAden was a risk taker. A volunteer firemn in the small southern town where he had lived his entire life, he was the first to take the plunge into a burning house to resue someone, the first to put his own safety on the line. However, there was one risk that Taylor seemed unable to take, and that was to let any woman into his heart. Then he met Denise Holden. The single mother of a little boy with severe disabilities, Denise had moved from Atlanta to the small town of Edenton, North Carolina where her grandparents had left her a house. She came to Edenton in an attempt to make ends meet while devoting herself to the care of her child. Falling in love was the last thing she intended. A near fatal car crash brings Denise and Taylor together, and awakens in them felings long dormant. But before Taylor can fully welcome Denise and Kyle into his life, he must first take the ultimate risk-to look into his heart and his past, and see if it's not too late to take a chance on the future. "From the Hardcover edition."

Sparks never disappoints me. Even when I think his story will be too predictable or sappy, it isn't. He took a simple plot and added a depth of emotion that took me by surprise. It was a good thing I wasn't still on the bus when I got to the end of this one; my tears would've embarassed me. You wouldn't think a story about a guy afraid of commitment could be so good. In all of his books you learn something new; in this case, about speech problems. He makes life in a small town appealing, and he uses humour to make his characters likeable. The only thing I've noticed is that in all his books, there are no characters with different skin colour or even many ethnic people of any kind, but then maybe that's what Sparks' own life is like. He needs to get out more.

Couldn't put it down!
This was another can't-get-enough-of-it book. It's a page turner and you really want to find out how it turns out as quickly as possible. Sparks throws you a few curve balls in this one (like most of his reads). Well worth your time.
