I'm kind of surprised by this book. Not at all your typical Nicholas Sparks. I was very disappointed in the male character being so wimpy is was hardly bvelievable that he was supposed to work for a big advertizing agency. Not believable, and his wife was a piece of work and inconsistant in her character, NOT the motherly type at all, very self centered. It just didn't fit and way too much negativity for me. I'm a fan of all his other works, but not this one. Guess you can win them all. Maybe next time.
