#1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks returns with his signature combination of gripping, emotionally resonant storytelling and love overcoming all odds.

          At 32, Russell Green has it all: a stunning wife, a lovable 6-year-old daughter, a successful career as an advertising executive and an expansive home in Raleigh. He is living the Dream, and his marriage to the bewitching Vivian is the center of that dream. But underneath the shiny surface of this perfect existence, fault lines are beginning to appear . . . and no one is more surprised than Russ when he finds every aspect of the life he took for granted turned upside down.
          In a matter of months, Russ finds himself without a job or wife, caring for his young daughter London while struggling to adapt to a new and baffling reality. Trying to launch his own business while grappling with the demise of his marriage, the only thing he knows for certain is that London must be sheltered from the consequences of these radical changes. Throwing himself into the wilderness of single parenting, Russ embarks on a journey at once terrifying and rewarding - one that will test his abilities and his emotional resources beyond anything he ever imagined.
          When a chance encounter with an old flame tempts him to take a chance on love again, he will navigate this new opportunity with trepidation and wonder. But with the loyal support of his parents and his wise older sister Marge, and in the hard-won lessons of fatherhood, Russ will finally come to understand the true nature of unconditional love -  that it is a treasure to be bestowed, never earned.

Thanks for stopping by today during this launch day event. Are you a Nicholas Sparks fan? Which do you prefer the books or the movies or both?


  1. Nice to hear a story about a man thrust into the maelstrom of single parenthood.

  2. Single parenting is tough, especially for a man. We had a friend who'd raised his daughter by himself since she was two and she's everything to him.

  3. Sparks always explores such interesting aspects of love, loss, life, etc... And this one's really timely, as there are a lot of single parents out there. Thanks for sharing, Mason.

  4. As a male author who writes grand, romantic, emotion-filled fiction, what an impact Nicholas Sparks has made on the publishing world--and the world at large! Yes, I am a great fan--"Dear John" is my favorite. There's also "Safe Haven", "The Notebook", "The Lucky One", "Nights in Rodanthe", "A Walk to Remember", "The Last Song"--the amazing list goes on and on. I love both the books and the movies.

  5. Wow--you're helping with a big-name launch! I'm not a fan necessarily--I read a few of his books and got the pattern down. When I started realizing that one of every couple dies in his books, I lost interest. I'm not so much into getting emotionally invested in a love story, only to have someone die. It might work once or twice in a story, but not every single one.

  6. Really cool giveaway. The story here sounds like an absorbing one.


I'd love to hear your thoughts on today's post. Thanks for dropping by.
