Son de esas historia donde la piel, el corazon y el alma se extremecen de tal manera que lo unico que queda es agradecer a Dios, por amar y ser amado de tal manera.
Es una verdadera historia de amor, desde el principio hasta los "80 años"... tal cual como deseamos vivirla nosotros.

It was this year when he met Jamie Sullivan, the quiet, goody-two-shoes and always wearing her hair in a bun. She was the daughter of a Southern Baptist Minister who was constantly teased by Landon and his friends, the cool kids in school who eat boiled peanuts in graveyards. Hegbert Sullivan also wrote plays. Landon joined the Drama Club in school instead of Chemistry for ease and pleasure, not by reciting lines but sleeping. When Jamie was needless to say, made the angel, she was to stand in front of the class and Landon found a slightly more attractive her than usual. He didn't give much thought about it, until he was forced to ask Jamie to accompany him for the homecoming dance. That was better than cleaning up puke, right?
After the dance, Jamie asked Landon to do her a favor by playing Tom, the lead role of the play besides the angel. He excepted it, touched by Jamie's emotions. Thus came the session to walk her home. His love for Jamie developed when her role of the angel came out, when she let her honey-blonde hair down, wore a beautiful dress and a touch of make-up, making the sight of her arresting. After the play, he wished that, for the first time, he could walk her home.
Thus came the unusual and unexpected relationship they had. He first started bringing her to his house and then to classy diners.
But Sparks say that every good thing comes to an end. Jamie had a secret kept long in her heart, and when she finally told Landon about a battle she had been fighting, all emotions came in. How the relationship Landon and his father built up, how Jamie changed everybody's life in her town, and how Landon's love can bring great joy to Jamie while she fights on.
This book is very educational, with a lot of Christian beliefs and good deeds. It also has a touch of humor and very very sad parts which will leave most of you tearing. I recommend this book to everybody who wants a good book to read and is capable of curling in his or her room (I'm sure you wouldn't want others to see you cry over a book). This book was recommended to me by other Mandy Moore fans who've read it (after we knew that Mandy would be acting the lead role with Shane). I've never regretted buying and I still enjoy it,
I reccommend that you buy this book because it's a story that isn't like the others that are out there. Look for the movie of a "Walk to Remember" coming late 2001 or early 2002. It will star MANDY MOORE and SHANE WEST. This books brings you through so many emotions. It makes you laugh, smile, frown and more.

Only with Nicholas Sparks as the author, this story is different. You are immediately captivated into the story, reliving it, feeling it and savoring each and every emotion. It is a sensory experience reading this story and you feel like you become Noah or Allie, the main characters, the soul mates. By the end of the book, tears are sure to be shed, deep sighs emitted and then one is left thinking is such a love possible and where does one find a love like this?
This is a beautiful love story, with all the emotions to hook you from the get-go. The sensitivity of the author is clearly portrayed in Noah and Allie. Nicolas Sparks weaves his magic with this story, which is based on his wife's "beloved grandparents."
I absolutely loved this story and I am not a big romance reader. But I do love Nicholas Sparks' books and now have read all of them. If you are a hopeless or a hopeful romantic, then this book is a must read! As with all of Nicholas Sparks' books, keep a box of Kleenex handy - you are sure to use them!
Enter Mike, Jim's best friend, whom Julie cares deeply for. However, she is afraid to ruin a wonderful friendship by adding romance to the equation. Mike makes his feelings known, but Julie is not persuaded. Julie decides instead to go out with Richard Franklin, an engineer in town on a contract. Richard and Julie go on a few dates, and things seem to be moving along. But when Julie begins receiving ominous phone calls and Singer begins acting strangely disturbed, this would-be love story becomes a powerful thriller.
I am probably one of the few people who have never read Sparks before this book, but I assure you, this will not be my last time. His characters are depicted in a way that makes you see them, hear them, and feel the range of emotions they experience. THE GUARDIAN is a great summer cliffhanger.

Julie Berenson is a young widow at 25 years of age, and her husband left her with two unexpected gifts. He left her with a puppy named Singer and the promise that he would always be watching over her. Now, four years later, twenty-nine-year-old Julie is far too young to never have love again. She may be ready to risk caring for someone again. But who?
Should it be Richard Franklin, the sophisticated, handsome engineer who treats her like a queen? Or Mike Harris, the down-to-earth really loving guy who was her husband's best friend? Choosing one of them should bring Julie happiness. But instead,
Julie is fighting for her life because of a jealous nature which ignites a murderous desire.
While this book has similar main characters to Message in a Bottle (single mother, loner guy), it definitely carries its own weight. I was so relieved that the author has not fallen into the "formula writing" style that so many bestselling authors have these days.
The plot is new but the author's style of writing is still there. He does an excellent job of introducing the characters and letting us go through their range of emotions with them. The book flows nicely as I was able to finish in a weekend. (I obtained an advance reader copy about a month ago)
If you have enjoyed his previous novels, you'll like this one too. You'll also enjoy it if this is your first Nicholas Sparks book. You should also check his others as they are all available in paperback now.

If your looking for a mystery this is not the book for you because it's very obvious what is going to happen by the middle of the book. It's great if you want a quick romantic read though. I consider any book that makes you cry or laugh out loud a good read. I was ready to start sobbing when I was reading this so I'd say A Bend in the Road was great.
Miles Ryan's life felt like it ended the day his wife was killed in a hit-&-run accident. While Miles struggles with the unanswered question of who murdered his wife, their son suffers with nightmares & is struggling in school. A parent-teacher conference is called & enter Sarah Andrews, Jonah's second grade teacher. Sarah is new to the town & trying to rebuild her own life after a disappointing first marriage.
As Sarah & Miles work together to help Jonah catch up, they fall in love. They discover that their newfound love starts to soothe the pain of their pasts & they begin to think of a future together. But something else binds them together beside their love.
A Bend in the Road is told from a unique viewpoint - that of the driver of the car that killed Missy. Writing in a journal the murderer lives with the guilt & nightmares. When the murderer is unveiled, can Miles' & Sarah's new love withstand the shocking secret?
Nicholas Sparks does it again! This is another example of why he is America's best-loved & bestselling author of stories of the heart. I highly recommend this heart-breaking mystery!
This book is about a girl named Sarah Andrews who moved to a small town called New Bern. She moved hoping to start over after going through a failed marriage and difficult divorce.

As Miles and Sarah both fall for each other, they start to go on date after date. Soon they are both deeply in love. After they have been together for a while, Sarah discovers a secret that makes a sudden twist to the whole story, which could demolish her happiness with Miles and Jonah.
Though he no longer holds a license (because of a sequence of events which are gradually filled in during the course of the book), Harding still does some occasional work for his friend Donnie, an old friend from his Chicago neighborhood who now works in a corporate security office.
As the book opens, Harding is tracking Dr. Stephen Rosenberg, a plastic surgeon, who has some decidedly unsavory sexual practices and preys on the nurses and students at the University of Chicago hospital. Rosenberg's wife, Elenya, is getting tired of the physical abuse she must sustain at her husband's hands and is looking for a way to divorce him.
This decidedly simple premise sets in motion a very complicated chain of events and gruesome murders, which, ultimately, I don't think, was ever satisfactorily solved. When I came to the end, I still had a lot of unanswered questions.
Still, the book was very good in its depiction of winter in Chicago; of the post-graduate hangers-on around campus, including Harding's friend, Boone; and of the unusual relationship Harding has with his former girlfriend, Allison, a woman into Goth and kick-boxing, and who now appears to be a lesbian. Harding is a memorable creation--a very well-educated, moral, romantic detective who loves horror movies. I wouldn't mind spending more time with him, though I hope subsequent books aren't as complicated.
Those who dislike a very dark, grim, at times even grotesque read, will be turned off by this book.
