Description

In the tradition of his beloved first novel, The Notebook, #1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks returns with the remarkable story of two couples whose lives intersect in profound and surprising ways.

Ira Levinson is in trouble. Ninety-one years old and stranded and injured after a car crash, he struggles to retain consciousness until a blurry image materializes beside him: his beloved wife Ruth, who passed away nine years ago. Urging him to hang on, she forces him to remain alert by recounting the stories of their lifetime together - how they met, the precious paintings they collected together, the dark days of WWII and its effect on them and their families. Ira knows that Ruth can't possibly be in the car with him, but he clings to her words and his memories, reliving the sorrows and everyday joys that defined their marriage.

A few miles away, at a local bull-riding event, a Wake Forest College senior's life is about to change. Recovering from a recent break-up, Sophia Danko meets a young cowboy named Luke, who bears little resemblance to the privileged frat boys she has encountered at school. Through Luke, Sophia is introduced to a world in which the stakes of survival and success, ruin and reward -- even life and death - loom large in everyday life. As she and Luke fall in love, Sophia finds herself imagining a future far removed from her plans -- a future that Luke has the power to rewrite . . . if the secret he's keeping doesn't destroy it first.

Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common, and who are separated by years and experience. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.

The Longest Ride

I have read all of Nicholas Sparks books, and they are so sad. While this book had sad moments, it was a beautiful love story woven into the story of a well lived life. Yes it was Sparks and I cried, but it was happy tears.

The Longest Ride

I think this is Nicolas Sparks best book. I have all his books and I love them all but this one truly touched me. I enjoyed it from start to finish and would recommend it to everyone who loves a great tear jerker romance. I can't wait till he writes his next book, he really has a gift from God and I'm happy he is sharing it with everyone. Thank you Mr. Sparks

Good

I enjoyed this book very much. It made me think and just fall in love with the characters in this book. It was a good read, however; I actually knew from around the middle of the book of what would happen in the end which made the second half of the book less interesting.
