In a testimony to the lasting power of love, a man tells an elderly woman a story from a faded old notebook, his voice relating the heartbreaking tale of two lovers and their fifty-year journey to happiness.
Noah Calhoun returns to his rural Southern plantation after World War II, determined to restore the place to its original glory. A woman he knew and loved years earlier comes back into his life, engaged to another man, and with the obstacles that prevented the fulfillment of their love for each other still in place. This love story is based on the experiences of the author's grandparents. THE NOTEBOOK held a spot on the Publishers Weekly mass market best-seller list for 16 weeks.
