Nights in Rodanthe was not much different from your average Nicholas Sparks book. It's a story filled with love, deception and finding your way past life's struggles. The main characters both have had life knock them down. Adrienne's husband left her and their three children for another, younger woman. Paul Flanner put his work before his life. He lost his relationship with his son and his wife due to his inability to put his family first. The book begins in the present. Adrienne's children are grown and her eldest, Amanda is now widowed with the recent passing of her husband. She tells her a story, the story of her nights in Rodanthe with Paul to give her hope about life and finding love again. Adrienne goes to Rodanthe in the OBX, NC to get time away from the stress of her divorce, aging father and children to relax and watch over her friend's inn/beach house. There she has a customer, Paul Flanner. Paul left his home because he recently had a patient die in surgery. It killed him inside and he wanted to make amends. It wasn't exactly love at first sight for the two but there was definitely some infatuation. Over the next few days Rodanthe's storms made their love and physical relationship grow stronger. When time came to travel back home, the two kept in touch with letters. Paul went to Ecuador to help rebuild his relationship with his son and help with the people there with vaccines and medicine, food supply and such. On the day Paul and Adrienne were supposed to reunite, Adrienne is greeted at her door by Paul's son. He tells her Paul died in Ecuador saving lives. Though this isn't such a happy everyday love story Adrienne's hope to move on helped her daughter find love again.
