it was amazing
bookshelves: nicholas-recommends

It's a "love story" done "Stephen King" style and so perfectly done that my first thought after finishing was to read the novel a second time. The characters are so genuine and universal that everyone will love them, and the story is both magical and heart-breaking at exactly the same time.

Beverlyn Anne I will try...I have never read it yet to read his books because I was just currently reading your novel "Safe Haven"... maybe after reading your novel, I will try to read that.. I will make it to download it now or tomorrow. Thanks for the recommend Sir:)

Nathan I think he's just hoping for a "Stephen King" jacket blurb in return for giving this 5 stars. ;)

Lol. He is generous (his avg. rating is 5) but I seriously doubt that he needs more validation. He is the like the god of romance novels.

Carey Smith Awesome love story I completely agree told Stephen king style

ArlyPL All comments are very persuasive, thanks.

Helene Bjerg-Holm I completely agree with you! I keep on reading this book over and over again - and I'm still moved by it every time.

Susan Dorne "Perfectly done"? What book did you read? This has become my least favorite King book. Al that crazy lingo is annoying as hell. And King usually does dialect so well.

Maggie McTiernan Agree 100%. Think this is a masterpiece and crazy that it hasn't had much more attention. An absolutely beautiful book.
