In the months that follow, Landon discovers the true depths of the human heart, and takes a decision that is so stunning it will lead him irrevocably down the road to manhood ...
This was an older book, but the condition was just great. It was one that was missing in a friend of mine's collection of his writings and I gave it to her for a gift. I've used this seller before, and will return again!

Walk to Remember
A hardcover book for this price was a great deal; I just wish someone would have stated that it was large print.

Won't want to put this down!
If you watched the movie and didn't read this book you are missing out!!! There are quite a few key scenes in the book that are not in the movie. The book is so well written. You will fall in love with the romance between Landon and Jamie. This is what you call true romance!
