Hardcover – October 16, 2018.
In the romantic tradition of The Notebook and Nights in Rodanthe, #1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks returns with a story about a chance encounter that becomes a touchstone for two vastly different individuals — transcending decades, continents, and the bittersweet workings of fate.
Hope Anderson is at a crossroads. At thirty-six, she’s been dating her boyfriend, an orthopedic surgeon, for six years. With no wedding plans in sight, and her father recently diagnosed with ALS, she decides to use a week at her family’s cottage in Sunset Beach, North Carolina, to ready the house for sale and mull over some difficult decisions about her future.
Tru Walls has never visited North Carolina but is summoned to Sunset Beach by a letter from a man claiming to be his father. A safari guide, born and raised in Zimbabwe, Tru hopes to unravel some of the mysteries surrounding his mother’s early life and recapture memories lost with her death. When the two strangers cross paths, their connection is as electric as it is unfathomable . . . but in the immersive days that follow, their feelings for each other will give way to choices that pit family duty against personal happiness in devastating ways.
Illuminating life’s heartbreaking regrets and enduring hope, Every Breath explores the many facets of love that lay claim to our deepest loyalties — and asks the question, How long can a dream survive?
“Sparks is known for crafting sweeping romances that make readers feel deeply and believe in the power of love…Sparks confirms his gifts…in this thoughtfully researched and spellbinding story of love that defies time, a tale both heartbreaking and heartwarming.”―Booklist
Nicholas Sparks, you never cease to amaze me. With your words you create worlds and stories I could never even imagine, and in a few pages you make us read about the love of a lifetime. And “Every Breath” is just another example of how great and unique your writing skills are. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for making me believe and fall in love with love itself at every turning page.
Now I am not normally a Nicholas Sparks reader, so I was a bit leery starting this book as it seemed kinda hooky to me. However, it picked up before it hit the middle and I found myself not wanting to put it down, to see how the story would end. Overall I did like the book and I recommend it.
Not at all what I expected from NS novels. I enjoyed the fact that just when I thought I knew what was going to happen next, he changed it up-a happy ending , but sad too.
