The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks
Two couples who have little in common, and who are separated by years and experience. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys. (excerpt from publisher's blurb)
It took me a ridiculously long time to read this book because I kept convincing myself I didn't like it and laying it aside. It moves too slow . . . (pause) . . . cliche college students . . . (pause) . . . ugh - WWII . . . (pause) . . . Why, oh why, is he telling me all this? . . . (pause) . . . oh . . . OH . . Now, I get it. Hmmm, this is a good story. So, my review is: This is a book by Nicholas Sparks. Trust him - he's got some talent. Even when your brain is saying you don't like this book - you're gonna like this book!
