I read this for something lighter and heartwarming. Nicholas Sparks is always good for heartwarming! I mean, he did write The Notebook after all! This book surprised me in that I didn't want to put it down. And, I honestly wasn't sure how it was all going to turn out. It certainly turn out like I expected. But I won't say anymore. Except, yes, I did cry! Now, go read for yourself!
Here is more from the Nicholas Sparks website about what it's about:
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.
