A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks


A Walk to Remember ~ Nicholas Sparks
In 1958 Landon Carter is a shallow but well-meaning teenager who spends most of his time hanging out with his friends and trying hard to ignore the impending responsibilities of adulthood. Then Landon gets roped into acting the lead in the Christmas play opposite the most renowned goody two-shoes in town: Jamie Sullivan. Against his best intentions and the taunts of his buddies, Landon finds himself falling for Jamie and learning some central lessons in life.

I knew ahead of time of the ending since I watched the movie many years ago and yet it still didn’t stop me from getting choked up.  Although the book and movie are set in different time periods, they followed pretty closely.  It's sweet, sad and beautiful, an easy read for a snowy afternoon.  I was pleasantly surprised at how much it touched me. I would definitely recommend it.
