Every Breath

Treat yourself to an epic love story that spans decades and continents as two people at a crossroads -- one from North Carolina and one from Zimbabwe -- experience the transcendence and heartbreak of true love.

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?

True Love Always Finds A Way5 star

Very well written! True love will always find a way! Must read and I hope someday it will be a movie. 55


A great Read with up and down emotions5 star

While reading this, I felt myself and thought about only anger with regret. In the end it has made me see that forgiveness and understanding are much stronger forces. Two people who loved and lost love have shown that, that lost love will always prevail for reasons only known to a higher power. 55

This wonderful experience truly took my breath away and made me realize....it's NEVER too late ❤️ 55


Left feeling confused with so much time wasted.2 star

This is the worst book you have written..... I can’t even come up with words to explain how awkward and drawn out some parts were and the lack of so much detail in other parts. It seemed like a big jumble of memories in someone’s head pouring out. It was awful. 25


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
