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?

Stopped reading after the first few chapters1 star

Realized that the setting was supposed to be in 1990 but Sparks talks about one character texting towards the end of Chapter Two. Sparks has gotten sloppy with his writing and this just shows there was no concern for the historical integrity of the book. 15

I couldn’t put the book down. I finished it in about a day and a half. I cried laughed and got lost in the love story of Hope and Tru. It was definitely worth reading. 55

Every Breath5 star

Typical Sparks, but with a twist! Could not put it down! 55


Good but not great4 star

I have read every book Nicholas Sparks has wrote. I was glued to this book the second I started it. I absolutely loved how you felt how in love they were, but the curve ball of them meeting again in their sixties really wrecked the book. If it wasn’t a true story you should have them meet younger so they could actually have a life together... being “that” in love. Other than that I loved it. 45
