Summary
From the author of The Longest Ride and The Return comes a novel about the enduring legacy of first love, and the decisions that haunt us forever.
 
1996 was the year that changed everything for Maggie Dawes. Sent away at sixteen to live with an aunt she barely knew in Ocracoke, a remote village on North Carolina’s Outer Banks, she could think only of the friends and family she left behind . . . until she met Bryce Trickett, one of the few teenagers on the island. Handsome, genuine, and newly admitted to West Point, Bryce showed her how much there was to love about the wind-swept beach town—and introduced her to photography, a passion that would define the rest of her life.

By 2019, Maggie is a renowned travel photographer. She splits her time between running a successful gallery in New York and photographing remote locations around the world. But this year she is unexpectedly grounded over Christmas, struggling to come to terms with a sobering medical diagnosis. Increasingly dependent on a young assistant, she finds herself becoming close to him.

As they count down the last days of the season together, she begins to tell him the story of another Christmas, decades earlier—and the love that set her on a course she never could have imagined.

If you need a good ugly cry this is the book. As heartbreaking as this book is it has a lot of redeeming qualities. As always beautifully written. Theme- true love is eternal, never waivers and can be a legacy for the next generations. In true Sparks style- family struggles is the core of this book.

Cute story. A bit predictable towards the end. I find the narrator hard to listen to. She sounds like an older woman pretending to speak in a baby voice. No other complaints.

A pretty decent listen. The ending had a twist I didn’t see coming!

I LOVED this book. At the beginning when Nicholas Sparks says it might be his best book ever. I thought oh my, that is huge… such a wonderful book. I might have to agree Mr Sparks

Not a huge Nicholas Sparks fan. I might not have chosen this book had it not been set near where I live. I’m so glad I did choose it! While I thought he got a little preachy in parts, overall I loved the story and the characters. Keep a box of tissues close by! The narrators fit the characters perfectly.

I loved this sweet, heartbreaking love story. I fell in love with Maggie’s son Mark. Will’s voice was perfect for this character.

I really enjoyed this sweet & beautiful story. The narration was so good that I could really visualize these wonderful characters. The only reason I did not give it a 5 star rating is because I found the story to be a too predictable. I prefer more of a twist & I was able to predict the ending. But all in all, I totally enjoyed listening to this story & I fell in love with the characters.

It was a good book, always love Nicholas Sparks. I figured out the plot twists (and I’m not one to usually do that) so it was a little bland for me. Great narration though!

I started to listen to this book and felt disappointed. I couldn’t identify with the narrators and wondered why we were taken back and forth to the present character(Maggie) and her teenage self. Patience is a virtue! I continued to listen and soon felt a part of this sad, yet beautiful story. I loved this book and I just finished listening to it, I already miss the characters. Beautiful story.

This book is beautifully written and narrated wonderfully. Listening covers all emotions. Moments where I smiled, moments when I was sad, moments where I had to continue listening, moments where I teared up, moments where I was surprised. One of the best ones by far..
