Read It and Weep

Looking for a story that will tug at your heartstrings? Pick up The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks (Grand Central Publishing), and you'll find the king of romance has done it again (he's the author of other tearjerker novels such as The NotebookA Walk to Remember, and Message in a Bottle). In his latest book, we meet Dawson Cole and Amanda Collier, high school students from opposite sides of the tracks who fall madly in love with one another. As young romances tend to go, their relationship comes to an end in their senior year. Fast forward twenty five years later, and the two have gone on to forge different lives, neither of which they had imagined for themselves. The death of a mutual friend bring Dawson and Amanda back to their hometown for a weekend, and they are faced with some hard truths and answers to questions that have haunted their pasts. Be sure you're in the mood for this one—it's a tale of sorrow and heartbreak that will enthral you from beginning to end.
