There are stories that rise from mysterious, unknown places, and others that are discovered, a gift from someone else.
Found near a sandy dune, on an actual stretch of North Carolina beach, sits a community mailbox—owned by no one and everyone. A character in its own right, Kindred Spirit rests atop a driftwood post, waiting to share the hopes and dreams entrusted by past visitors, along with this resounding message: love endures.

I just finished Every Breath this morning and it turned out to be pretty good. Once I got about half way through I was leary with the direction the book was taking, but by the end it came together nicely.
Hope is in a relationship that she isn't exactly content with. Her boyfriend Josh doesn't seem to be committing and after six years she wonders what their future holds. Her dad has been diagnosed with a debilitating health condition and she doesn't know how much time they have le ...more

Title: Every Breath
Author: Nicholas Sparks
Release date: October 16, 2018
Every Breath had a lot of promise to be a big winner for me, but unfortunately it didn't reach my expectations. Based on the synopsis, it sounded like an emotional ill-fated love story with the potential for a second chance later in life. How long can a dream survive? it poses.
Mistakes were inevitable, and she’d concluded that regrets could impart important lessons in life, if one was willing to learn fro ...more

➽ KITTY KATS CRAZY ABOUT BOOKS
In the romantic tradition of The Notebook and Nights in Rodanthe Nicholas Sparks brings us EVERY BREATH which Is a full length, stand alone romance novel.
Like previous novels by this author he has such an uncanny knack of weaving a magic spell over his readers Every Breath is no different, unique in every way, it drew me in as soon as I started reading it.
In this we’re introduced to forty two year old Tru, an uncon ...more

The king of contemporary romance fiction returns with a brand new love story titled, Every Breath. This is a love at first sight classic romance, that sees destiny play a huge role in shaping the lives of two individuals, Tru and Hope. Sparks describes his latest novel as ‘a classic story of lovers long denied’. I think this quote perfectly summarises what you can expect when you pick up Every Breath.
The latest novel from Nicholas Sparks begins with ...more
But maybe that predictability was what I was in the mood for cause I actually really enjoyed this one. Still not sure why I picked it up but hey, I it worked out.
Every Breath is the first Nicholas Sparks book I have read. I wanted to love it but, unfortunately, I was underwhelmed.
The author wants us to believe that Tru and Hope fall passionately in love after spending two days together. It is not entirely improbable, but to me it felt more like two strangers forming a wonderful bond of friendship rather than starting a romance. Any sparks are tepid at best, and the declarations of love come out of left field.
The story is rushed, but it also se ...more

One thing I thoroughly enjoyed about this one was Nicholas Sparks’ personal words within the book. It really indicated how moved he was by the true story that inspired him in writing this book. It was lovely. There’s really no other way to put it.
My quick and simple overall: devastatingly beautiful ok so many fronts.

Eeep - finally another Nicholas Sparks book!
I just love his stories. A WALK TO REMEMBER was the book that started my reading addiction back in 2002 or somewhere around that time.
Every Breath is really heartbreaking and sad and moving and hopeless but also full of hope and love and family and loss and ... so much. Full of all those beautiful and heartbreaking things a Nicholas Sparks book needs.☺
We start with 42 year old Zimbabwe tour guide Tru. He's the grandson of one of the countries' richest ...more

“The destiny that matters most in anyone’s life is the one concerning love.”
Every Breath is a tear jerker. You have been warned!
For the longest time, I resisted reading Nicholas Sparks novels. I had seen the movies like A Walk to Remember, Message in a Bottle, Dear John and The Notebook. So I knew his main characters either didn't stay together or one of them died. As a true romantic, this really hurt my heart. Then, I read The Longest Ride, See Me, and Two by Two and I became a fan of his s ...more
“It’s because of you, after all, that I now believe in miracles. With us, I want to believe that anything will always be possible.”
I remember the first Nicholas Sparks novel I ever read. I was in 6th grade (2003) and I picked up A Walk to Remember at Walmart. It was the movie tie in cover, with Mandy Moore and Shane West holding hands— which I still have to this day. I read the whole book that night and begged my mom to buy me the movie, and thankfully, she did. I think I watched that movie ...more
What I liked most about this novel is that it’s a true story and it’s just such a cute little romance novel with an equal amount of sad moments involved. It’s so pure and Sparks writes so beautifully it’ ...more
