Book Synopsis



From the author of The Longest Ride and The Return comes a novel about the enduring legacy of first love, and the decisions that haunt us forever.

1996 was the year that changed everything for Maggie Dawes. Sent away at sixteen to live with an aunt she barely knew in Ocracoke, a remote village on North Carolina's Outer Banks, she could think only of the friends and family she left behind . . . until she met Bryce Trickett, one of the few teenagers on the island. Handsome, genuine, and newly admitted to West Point, Bryce showed her how much there was to love about the wind-swept beach town--and introduced her to photography, a passion that would define the rest of her life.

By 2019, Maggie is a renowned travel photographer. She splits her time between running a successful gallery in New York and photographing remote locations around the world. But this year she is unexpectedly grounded over Christmas, struggling to come to terms with a sobering medical diagnosis. Increasingly dependent on a young assistant, she finds herself becoming close to him.

As they count down the last days of the season together, she begins to tell him the story of another Christmas, decades earlier--and the love that set her on a course she never could have imagined.

I have read almost all of NS’s books and this was a good one. I don’t think it’s as good as some (the Choice, Nights in Rodanthe etc) but it was good for one of his newer reads. I attempted to read See Me last year and I couldn’t even finish it so I was excited to read this and see more of his classic style love story again. This story is a tad predictable in some ways, but also has a different twist than most love stories. I really enjoyed it overall!

It was truly an amazing read. I felt that I was watching a movie while reading it, I don’t know if anyone ever felt that while reading the story, but I sure did and the emotions I felt were so mixed it left me wanting to keep reading the story till I finally finished it within a day and a half. Amazing read definitely recommend

A Touching Story

Jennyv - 10 months ago, Verified purchaser
This book left me in tears. It was not what I expected when I originally had purchased the book. However, it reminded me that in life there’s always a moment when we wish we could turn back time, to reminisce in moments that were so long ago. It’s about the impact people have on us and how we carry a piece of them in our hearts forever.

I loved this book, I am a Nicholas Sparks fan and was so happy he did not disappoint. I read this while on vacation on the beach and cried about 5 different times. He writes the best tear jerking love stories. Hope this becomes a movie! Highly recommend!!
