This story not only focuses on the beauty of love and parenthood, but also touches on the painfull struggles of fighting your demons and following your heart. Sparks combines passion, pain, and loss into a must-read that you can't put down. No one could resist the inspiring strength of love; whether it's Denise's devotion to her son or the relationship between Taylor and Denise, you won't be dissapointed. This is definetely one of Sparks's best.

Not only is Nicholas Sparks on of my favorite writers he is what really inspires me to become a writer myself. This book affected me because of Kyle. I love how he used the boy in this book not as a bad symbol but as a gift. The love in all is books just like this one is really amazing. I cried with happieness or saddness in all of his books and I just love the feel I get when I am done reading one. I always want to read more. Great work..

One of America's bestselling authors returns with a tale about the greatest commitment of all: loving someone forever. When a near-fatal car crash brings Taylor McAden together with Denise Holden, a new resident of Edenton, North Carolina, he must look into his past to see if it's not too late to take a chance on the future.
Volunteer fireman Taylor McAden is driven to take terrifying, heroic risks to save lives. But there's one leap into the unknown he can't bring himself to make: He can't fall in love. A man who likes to rescue troubled women, he inevitably leaves them as soon as they want more from him. Then, one day, a record-breaking storm hits his small Southern town, and Taylor comes across a young single mother named Denise Holton in a crashed car. When she revives, Taylor finds himself looking for her missing son-and involved in a rescue different from all the others. This one will require him to open doors to his past slammed shut by pain. And with Denise's help, dare him to make the greatest commitment of all: love someone forever.
