    I loved this book. In a marriage relationship there are many look backs. You see where you wished you had done something different. This book is a great HEADS UP. Don't make this mistake. The main character wished he had done things different and he made wonderful efforts to change them. However, prior scars crated can never completely do away. SO don't make them. Read this book and get engaged in the marriage relationship.

    The Wedding was great! Loved the surprise at the end! Didn't see that coming. Almost as good as The Notebook.

    I really loved this book it may have been because Noah was in it and I love Allie and Noah's story, His love for his Allie, even death could not stop that love and passing on this knowledge of how to reach deep into your heart to love to his son in law, Wilson. How Wilson learned to love his wife and sorting through his thoughts it helps you see inside of a man's mind. Like waking up from a 30 year sleep. I am sure we all have slept through some years and missed because of being to busy. It was a beautiful story and I love the unexpected ending, I really loved this story and highly recommend it.

    I could not get through the first section. OMG, it was so boring, it was putting me to sleep while I was driving. Don't waste your time unless this is for someone in a coma and doesn't care anyway.

    I think a lot of marriages can get to this point, but it is so heart-warming to imagine that love can bring back the romance again but has to be worked on. I enjoy this as a break from the Mysterys,Westerns and Thrillers I read also.

    PAINFULLY dull from the start. I listened to 3 of the CD's thinking it might get better and it did not. Play-by-play descriptions of very boring things such as placing dishes in the dishwasher. Very shallow insight and thoughts; I felt my mind constantly wandering. Returned the book after 3 CDs.

    At the beginning it was hard to keep listening but after sometime I found it to be a great romance book. My husband would never think to do what this person has done and so I love it for the simple fact I got to experience the romance. I would diffidently recommend this book.

    This was a very lovely story that was wonderfully read by Tom Wopat. The ending caught me quite off guard and made me cry. I highly recommend this book if you enjoy sweet, simple love stories.

    I've been listening to all of Nicholas Sparks' books, and they are most enjoyable on audio. While a bit predictable, this was a lovely story, especially if you had read or listened to The Notebook. The narration is especially good.
