Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sparks brings back two characters from his bestseller True Believer in this continuing saga of extraordinary love between Jeremy Marsh and the love of his life Lexie Darnell. As Marsh looks forward to the birth of his first child, old wounds are reopened, setting off a chain of events that will change the course of his marriage.

Review:

"When we last left 37-year-old Jeremy Marsh (a scant six months ago, in Sparks's April pub True Believer), the science columnist had traveled from his New York base to Boone Creek, N.C., to get a story — and ended up falling in love with Lexie Darnell, the 30-year-old town librarian. Now Lexie's pregnant — but it's true love (and a portable job) that's allowing divorc Jeremy to move down so they can marry and build a life together. The book centers on the tension-filled runup to the wedding. Sparks pulls out all the smalltown stops — psychic grandmother, meddling mayor, sullen townie ex, jealous best friends — and offers Mars/Venus commentary on what makes his characters tick. Jeremy's writer's block, instead of heightening the will-they-or-won't-they tension, is as enervating for readers as it is for him. More compelling are the mysterious e-mails Jeremy receives that suggest Lexie may not be telling the truth (about who the father is, for one thing), and the character of Lexie's psychic grandmother, Doris, who has correctly predicted the sex of every child born in the town. As the wedding gets closer (and house renovations suck more and more money from Jeremy's dwindling savings), Jeremy and Lexie have some serious talking to do, and Sparks throws in a substantial zinger at the end. It's majorly manipulative and totally effective. Have plenty of tissues on hand." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"With his trademark sensitivity, Sparks delves into the nitty-gritty of relationships, and considers the sacrifices that each partner has to make in order to have a successful marriage. And readers beware: this is multiple-hankie romance." Booklist

Synopsis:

From the world's most beloved chronicler of the heart comes this astonishing story of everlasting love. Here, endings bring new beginnings and tragedies lead to unexpected joy, as the tale begun in True Believer continues...AT FIRST SIGHT There are a few things Jeremy Marsh was sure he'd never do: He'd never leave New York City; never give his heart away after barely surviving one failed marriage; and never become a parent.Now Jeremy is living in the tiny town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, engaged to Lexie Darnell, the love of his life, and anticipating the start of their family. But just as everything seems to be settling into a blissful pattern, a mysterious e-mail sets off a chain of events that will test the strength of their commitment. Capturing all the heartbreak, tension, and romance of the newly wed, AT FIRST SIGHT explores the love between a man and a woman and between a parent and a child-and reveals an extraordinary truth: that the emotion that can break your heart is sometimes the very one that heals it...

Synopsis:

This #1 "New York Times" bestseller by Sparks asks the question: Is love at first sight truly possible? Central characters Lexie Darnell and Jeremy Marsh, first introduced in "True Believer," return for this tale of love and life.

I'm a huge fan of Nicholas Sparks and have read every one of his books. Up until this book came out, my favorite was "The Notebook". This book surpasses "The Notebook" in every way possible. The story was very unpredictable, surprising and totally enveloping. I could not put it down and read it in one sitting!
I read this book as soon as it hit the bookstore and I still remember it vividly. It is an unforgetable book!
If you are looking for a heart-wrenching tear-jerker type of book, this is DEFINITELY a MUST READ!!! Just make sure you have a box of tissues handy!
