Every Breath

Get swept up in an epic romance from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Notebook, a heartbreaking love story spanning decades and continents--from North Carolina to Zimbabwe.

Hope Anderson is at a crossroads. At thirty-six, she's been dating her boyfriend, an orthopedic surgeon, for six years. With no wedding plans in sight, and her father recently diagnosed with ALS, she decides to use a week at her family's cottage in Sunset Beach, North Carolina, to ready the house for sale and mull over some difficult decisions about her future.
Tru Walls has never visited North Carolina but is summoned to Sunset Beach by a letter from a man claiming to be his father. A safari guide, born and raised in Zimbabwe, Tru hopes to unravel some of the mysteries surrounding his mother's early life and recapture memories lost with her death. When the two strangers cross paths, their connection is as electric as it is unfathomable . . . but in the immersive days that follow, their feelings for each other will give way to choices that pit family duty against personal happiness in devastating ways.

Illuminating life's heartbreaking regrets and enduring hope, EVERY BREATH explores the many facets of love that lay claim to our deepest loyalties--while asking the question, How long can a dream survive?

Very moving4 star

This is a very moving book; in fact, it made me cry several times, which is rare for me. There were parts that were disappointing, and I won’t give away any spoilers. But there were also parts that made my heart well with joy. “Every Breath” is essentially a love story, but it is also a story about believing in what seems unbelieveable, in hoping when there is no logical reason to hope. I appreciated that there was no cursing in the book, and I think it shows a special gift of writing, that Sparks didn’t find it necessary to rsort to that. It is a uniqe story, in that one of the well-drawn “Characters” is not a person, but a mailbox in which people share their hopes, dreams, greifs and joys. Sparks’ story was not predictable, and he is skilled at presenting surprises. I also enjoyed learning a little bit about Zimbabwe and other parts of Africa. I recommend this book. 45


Heartbreaking and beautiful!5 star

It always makes me so sad to read stories of love and time lost . Tru and Hope’s love was so strong and pure. I’m happy they found their way back to one another. 55
