The heartbreaking story of star-crossed high school lovers--a rebel and a minister's daughter--who find love and courage in each other, from the world's #1 beloved author of love stories.
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 smells of both the sea and lilacs, Landon Carter remembers 1958, his last year at Beaufort High. Landon had dated a girl or two, and even once sworn that he'd been in love. Certainly the last person he thought he'd fall for was Jamie, the shy, almost ethereal daughter of the town's Baptist minister....Jamie, who was destined to show him the depths of the human heart-and the joy and pain of living. The inspiration for this novel came from Nicholas Sparks's sister: her life and her courage. From the internationally bestselling author Nicholas Sparks, comes his most moving story yet....


  • Classic love story!!!

    I absolutely love this book, I had read this book Years ago and decided to read it again, I enjoyed reading it for the second time just as much as the first, it’s such a sweet story about being in love and how god can work in such mysterious ways! It’s very easy to fall in love with the characters of the book, and the story flows so nice, I recommend this book to anyone who is needing a good cry or even someone who is needing to find some faith, you won’t be disappointed!
  • One of my favorites

    I remember reading this book after seeing the movie adaptation. Even as a teen I could appreciate well written stories like this one. It still makes me smile and cry now even after 17 years. It's my absolute favorite novel of his.

    I read this in freshmen year, 2 years ago and loved it very much. I wish to read it again but I figured I shall give it a review so others can know how good this book is. At first, I wasn't so sure about it. And to be honest, we always had to read for 30 minutes in English class so I would get a random book that looked interesting depending on the cover. I saw A Walk To Remember and read the description. It seemed interesting so I took it and started reading it. I figured as I always did, that I would return it and pick a different book the next day but I didn't. I even snuck it in my backpack to keep reading it at home! That's how much I loved it. I soon finished it and was in tears, the book is definitely better than the movie. I wasn't aware of a movie until I saw it on Netflix last year and remembered it was from a book I read so I watched it. A few parts were different and that kind of bothered me but of course a movie can only have so much from a book, it was great nonetheless. But I recommend to read the book first, you will not regret it.

    This was one of the best books I've read. It was so touching and it was held close to my heart because of certain circumstances in the book. It was very emotional, but amazing👌

    I loved this book so much I couldn't put it down and finished it in 2 days! It was very well written and is a real tear jerker! I have never cried about a book before and this book had me go through a whole box of tissues! I would highly recommend it.
  • Marvelous

    By SOLDiiER77
    As I sit here wiping away tears, I feel compelled to write this. If you've never read this book before, I promise it is not a choice you will regret. A touching story of what true love is supposed to be. In no way do I bash the movie, but this book is nothing short of marvelous.

    It was OK. The story as a whole ended a lot quicker than I thought it was going to, it should've been longer. 4/10
