In the romantic tradition of Dear John, Nicholas Sparks returns with the story of an injured Navy doctor -- and two women whose secrets will change the course of his life in this #1 New York Times bestseller.

Trevor Benson never intended to move back to New Bern, North Carolina. But when a mortar blast outside the hospital where he worked sent him home from Afghanistan with devastating injuries, the dilapidated cabin he'd inherited from his grandfather seemed as good a place to regroup as any.

Tending to his grandfather's beloved beehives, Trevor isn't prepared to fall in love with a local . . . yet, from their very first encounter, Trevor feels a connection with deputy sheriff Natalie Masterson that he can't ignore. But even as she seems to reciprocate his feelings, she remains frustratingly distant, making Trevor wonder what she's hiding.

Further complicating his stay in New Bern is the presence of a sullen teenage girl, Callie, who lives in the trailer park down the road. Trevor hopes Callie can shed light on the mysterious circumstances of his grandfather's death, but she offers few clues -- until a crisis triggers a race to uncover the true nature of Callie's past, one more intertwined with the elderly man's passing than Trevor could ever have imagined.

In his quest to unravel Natalie and Callie's secrets, Trevor will learn the true meaning of love and forgiveness . . . and that in life, to move forward, we must often return to the place where it all began.


  • Love and a Mystery

    By Lakewaco
    A lovely story about love, loneliness, with a little mystery thrown in to make it exciting. I didn’t read the first two books, but I sure am glad to have read the third. Stick around to the end, it’s also a mystery.

  • Predictable but enjoyable

    By Albatross3330
    I’ve read all of his books. They are all pretty similar and predictable but I’ve enjoyed all of them.
  • Easy Sunday read

    By Baldacci Fan for Life
    This book was a decent read. I liked his other books better. This one felt like a movie script.
  • Loved the story line

    By vacampy
    Intriguing with good development
  • Homophobic and racist

    By NYT reader in SC
    Has everybody forgotten the horrible emails Nicholas Sparks wrote to keep LGBT and African Americans out of his school? Boycott.
  • Not up to par

    By bedyam
    This was not anywhere near what I expect from Nicholas Sparks! Not anywhere near the same level as The Notebook or Every Breath, if I didn’t know, I wouldn’t think it was the same author. Very disappointing, if you’re only going to write one book a year, make it a good one. Not enough romance, a strange story line and Sparks seemed to lose his way as he tried to weave the mystery and wasn’t able to pull me in like he has in the past. Sad
