A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks
Set in Beaufort, North Carolina, in the 1950s, A Walk to Remember tells the story of 17-year-old Landon Carter, who learns to live life differently after meeting Jamie Sullivan. Initially, Landon is the kind of guy who cares too much about what people think of him. But when Jamie comes into the picture, he only cares about being with her.
Things are looking up for Landon, until Jamie drops a bomb that changes their lives forever.
In A Walk to Remember, the characters take time to get to know each other and end up falling in love. Like other novelists of realistic fiction, Nicholas Sparks emotionally engages the reader. A Walk to Remember reminded me of all of Lurlene McDaniel’s novels, because both authors use themes of love and death.
