"It had all started four weeks earlier, when she was jogging along the shores of Cape Cod Bay". This is the thought in 36-year old Theresa Osborne's mind as she sits in a plane heading for an unspecified direction, wondering if she has made the right decision.
A columnist for a Boston newspaper, Theresa is divorced, the mother of a 12-year old son, overworked and stressed and wary of romance since her marriage went so miserably awry. Yet she longs for someone special...
Then, one morning while jogging on the beach during her vacation, she stumbles across a half-buried bottle washed up on the shore with a message inside. She opens it to find a love letter written only three weeks earlier. My Dearest Catherine, it begins, I miss you my darling, as I always do but today is particularly hard because the ocean has been singing to me, and the song is that of our life together...
For the man who wrote these words, the letter is a testament to undying love. For Theresa, it is the beginning of a voyage...a voyage of self-discovery and renewal, of passions reawakened and, perhaps, of the deepest sort of love.
From Nicholas Sparks, who so successfully navigated the terrain of the heart in his bestselling novel The Notebook, here is a new, unforgettable tale to remind us of love's enormous strength and its heartbreaking fragility.
On the shores of Cape Cod, a single mother discovers a bottle containing a poignant message--a deeply-felt love letter that launches her on a mysterious voyage of self-discovery and renewal. On her journey, she finds a remarkable man who restores her faith in love and kindles in her a conviction that star-crossed lovers will find each other across time and space.
Divorced and disillusioned about relationships, Theresa Osborne is jogging when she finds a bottle on the beach. Inside is a letter of love and longing to "Catherine," signed simply "Garrett." Challenged by the mystery and pulled by emotions she doesn't fully understand, Theresa begins a search for this man that will change her life. What happens to her is unexpected, perhaps miraculous-an encounter that embraces all our hopes for finding someone special, for having a love that is timeless and everlasting.... Nicholas Sparks exquisitely chronicles the human heart. In his first bestselling novel, The Notebook, he created a testament to romantic love that touched readers around the world. Now in this New York Times bestseller, he renews our faith in destiny, in the ability of lovers to find each other no matter where, no matter when...
