A heartwarming, powerful novel about a single father who must discover the true nature of unconditional love after his world is turned upside down--from the world's most beloved author of love stories.

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.
When a chance encounter with an old flame tempts him to take a chance on love again, he will navigate this new opportunity with trepidation and wonder. But with the loyal support of his parents and his wise older sister Marge, and in the hard-won lessons of fatherhood, Russ will finally come to understand the true nature of unconditional love--that it is a treasure to be bestowed, never earned.

    I think the story was a little drawn out. Not the same as the other Sparks books, however, very well written. The narrator was great! There was random music that would start at times, and I found that to be distracting to the story.

    Although the story was extremely predictable, it still made me think about how I treat my friends and family. It gave me a sense of how important my actions and words are to those around me. The narrator did an exceptional job!

    I chose this book bescause my granddaughter was reading it & enjoyes his books. He is not one of my favorite authors. He’s a little maudlin & predictibable for my taste, but I did enjoy “The Notebook”. “Two by Two” was a little slow at first and fairly predictable. I did like the way the characters were developed and the ending. About what I’ve come to expect from SPARKS.

    SPOILER ALERT IN REVIEW Please take my advice! Do not read or download this book! It is terrible! As other reviews have said it is easy to guess whats going to happen it was not written very well and feels like it was rushed. Okay so to my review I will keep it short and to the point but there will be some spoilers so do not continue reading if you want to be surprised. Still reading? Ok good to go don't complain you were warned. The book starts with the main character who obviously is a moron and has no balls. His wife treats him like crap and he still says yes ma'am instead of asking for his balls back. She obviously has no respect for the guy and obviously wants a real man. From the get go you know whats going to happen. She inevitably cheats and gets with a real man. He's heart broken which I understand. Divorce most definitely sucks. His dike sister and her lesbian lover console him and basically his butch sister has more balls then he does. The whole story he is either reminiscing of the past or he's complaining or describing clothes and food and his day. It is so boring! When he finally starts to get traction the book is almost over. It ends and his gay sister dies he has to move to Atlanta so he can see his daughter because that was the only way to get joint custody and he hooks up with his ex girlfriend that he cheated on. The epilogue was better then the whole book. Its a joke! Do not read this! I could write something better than this as an 8th grader! I generally would say he writes decent stories if your into that mushy crap. I however only wanted to hear this story as I thought it was about a father and a daughter growing a bond together because I have a wonderful daughter that I love and have enjoyed watching grow. This story missed its mark and left a bad taste for me. It talks more about his B of a wife and his sister then it does his daughter.
