THE BEST OF ME is the heart-rending story of two small-town former high school sweethearts from opposite sides of the tracks. Now middle-aged, they've taken wildly divergent paths, but neither has lived the life they imagined . . . and neither can forget the passionate first love that forever altered their world. When they are both called back to their hometown for the funeral of the mentor who once gave them shelter, they will be forced to confront the choices each has made, and ask whether love can truly rewrite the past.
With his uncanny knack for retelling a classic tale with enough emotional poignancy and immediacy to make it feel like the only story you've ever read, Nicholas Sparks crafts a heartbreaking story of star-crossed love in THE BEST OF ME. Although they grew up in the same town, Amanda Collier and Dawson Coles might as well have been from different, warring countries. Their lives could not have been more different, and no one would have ever expected--or wanted--them to find any common ground or point of connection. But Amanda refused to accept everyone else's opinion of Dawson, which was mostly based on his family's dangerous reputation, and she got to know the person he truly was. Years later, their lives have diverged and followed paths both predictable and unpredictable. When the death of a common friend brings them back to their small, divisive town, Amanda and Dawson must face their still deep feelings for each other, as well as the choices they made years ago.
