About This Item
Hope Anderson has some important choices to make. 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 heartbreaking regrets and enduring hope, Every Breath explores the many facets of love that lay claim to our deepest loyalties while asking a life-changing question: How long can a dream survive?

Was a gift and my daughter loves Nicholas Sparks
Every breath by Nichol...
Every breath by Nicholas Sparks Story starts with how the book came about by the author. Book starts with a man in Africa and his life there as a guide into the bush, as his family has done for years. He's heading to the US, everything is set...he's to meet his bio dad. He says goodbye to his son and ex wife before heading to the airport. Drew's father, who's dying, was to arrive in a few days... He wanders the beach and rescues a woman's dog, Hope who recdeived Scotty from her boyrfriend of 6 years. We learn about Hope who summered at Sunset Beach and the cottage is now being sold-she's a nurse at the trauma center-Josh is a doctor. She's really there for a friends wedding. Alternating chapters from each so you hear both sides of the same story... Super unique area-Kindred Spirit, love what it stands for as generations have used it. Sex scene. She wants to follow her dream.. story continues several decades later and she's downsizing and heading back to the ocean seashore to think of what she had given up... AUthors stories usually have been ending with one happy and one tragically sad and this is similar to that theme. Author fills in missing pieces of their lives over the lost years. Love learning about the locale and far away places and things that happen there. I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
Nicholas Sparks has ju...
Nicholas Sparks has just released his latest novel, Every Breath. And true to form, it's a warm, wonderful, heart-string tugging, have a tissue ready, love story. Sparks inserts himself as a character in the preface and epilogue, giving that 'maybe it's true' feeling into this work of fiction. And indeed a pivotal plot point of Every Breath is based in reality - the Kindred Spirit mailbox found on Sunset Beach, Bird Island, NC. People can leave a letter, anyone can read what's left. Sunset Beach is where Hope and Tru meet. Hope is 36 and has come to the family cottage to make some decisions about her future. Tru is staying next door, having flown in from Africa to meet his biological father. And yes, sparks fly and a deep connection is made in a short time. "...there are times when destiny and love collide." Sparks is a master of romantic fiction - the love at first sight, star-crossed, will they, won't they story. And while pragmatic me is skeptical if this could really happen, I absolutely love escaping into the stories in Sparks' books. I like both characters, but found myself more drawn to Tru. I'm not sure I would have made the same decision that Hope makes. The road to true love is a bumpy one at times and Sparks throws some curves into his story - including one I didn't expect at the end. I quite enjoyed Tru's descriptions of his home and life in Africa. In the author's notes Sparks says that " ...the inspiration and setting of the novel are drawn directly from my own experiences. I first traveled to Africa in 2010, and on that trip fell head over heels in love with the countries I was lucky enough to visit...." Every Breath was perfect escapist romantic reading.

I am a huge Nicholas Sparks fan, and was excited when I got an early copy of his new release. I really enjoyed the introduction to this story from the author and where he got his inspiration for this book. I think I enjoyed this even more knowing a little about the back story and that it really based off true events. I do feel it was different than his other work. It was not my favorite book I have read from the author, but it was still great. I loved the story between True and Hope. I liked learning about how they met, their life when they were apart, and especially when they come back together. I think the mailbox at Kindred Spirit sounds amazing and a place I would love to visit one day. This was emotional at times when talking about the parents of both True and Hope. I was waiting for the signature heart-wrenching moment that is in all of Nicholas Sparks books. Although this was very sad at times, it just never hit that level that most of his books have in the past. I know some people hate those, but I personally love that about his stories. I was a little let down when it came to that. Do not get me wrong, there were still several times your heart will break as you learn more about their story. Overall, this was an amazing and crazy love story. I would never have guessed that this was a real story without knowing it from the beginning. I really enjoyed it.
