There was a time when the world was sweeter…when the women in Beaufort, North Carolina, wore dresses, and the men donned hats…Every April, when the wind blows from the sea, Landon Carter remembers his last year at Beaufort High. It was 1958 and Landon had already dated a girl or two. He even swore that he had never once been in love. Certainly the last person in town he thought he’d never fall for was Jamie Sullivan, the daughter of the town’s Baptist minister. A quiet girl who always carried a Bible with her schoolbooks, Jamie seemed content living in a world apart from the other teens. She took care of her father and all people who needed her help.
No boy had ever asked her out. Landon would never have dreamed of it. Then suddenly Landon asked Jamie to be his partner for the homecoming dance and Landon Carter’s life would never be the same after that. Jamie made him to a better person and they fall in love. But suddenly she told Landon a huge secret, she had cancer. London’s heart got broken and Jamie died some weeks after.
Their story is unforgettable and as you wipe your tears away, you come to an unbelievable end — the sort of story that only Nicholas Sparks can tell. A walk to remember is one of the best books I have read. I have watched the movie as well and the movie and the book are both very good so I can recommend to read and watch a walk to remember to everyone.
I give the book 5/5 stars
