#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Nicholas Sparks returns with an emotionally powerful story of unconditional love, its challenges, its risks and most of all, its rewards.

At 32, Russell Green has it all: a stunning wife, a lovable six year-old daughter, a successful career as an advertising executive and an expansive home in Charlotte. He is living the dream, and his marriage to the bewitching Vivian is the center of that. But underneath the shiny surface of this perfect existence, fault lines are beginning to appear...and no one is more surprised than Russ when he finds every aspect of the life he took for granted turned upside down.

In a matter of months, Russ finds himself without a job or wife, caring for his young daughter while struggling to adapt to a new and baffling reality. Throwing himself into the wilderness of single parenting, Russ embarks on a journey at once terrifying and rewarding-one that will test his abilities and his emotional resources beyond anything he ever imagined.

    From Sambofarr
    I finished this book only because it's written by Sparks. I kept hope that it would get better, but it didn't. It's slow and very hard to engage with. Wouldn't recommend.

    Russ sounds like my son & Vivian is nicer than my daughter in law. Nicholas Sparks books are always so close to the heart.
  • Poor Characterization, Interesting Plot

    From Elizag1999
    While I found myself intrigued by Russ's journey (learning to be a single dad, handling his divorce), I also found that the characters were plain archetypes seen through various forms of Media. Vivian is the nasty wife who is unfaithful but can show decency at times, Russel is the pitiful dad who is tackling many stressors at once, Marge the fun sister with "unique" qualities. These characters don't go beyond this mold, they are not given the depth that makes me feel for them. The reason this story encapsulated me is because I became interested in how it ended, as opposed to feeling an emotional connection to the characters. In the end, I felt it was okay, but that it lacked in an important part of every novel: characterization.
