Author Info
Nicholas Sparks
Nicholas Sparks was born on New Year's Eve, 1965, in Omaha, Nebraska. The son of a scholar, his early years were largely nomadic until his father settled into a Ph.D. program at the University of Southern California. Like his father, Sparks excelled intellectually throughout high school and college at the University of Notre Dame. His first love, however, was running. When a severe tendon injury forced him off the track during his first year of college, Sparks, at his mother's request, delved into writing. His first book, THE PASSING, was never published and still sits in his family's attic. Several years passed, during which time Sparks married and had two sons. After surviving uninspiring careers as a real estate appraiser, waiter, telemarketer, and entrepreneur, Sparks wrote his first published work, THE NOTEBOOK. This inspirational love story based on the life of his grandparents was an instant best-seller in 1996. Since then, he has written two other books--MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE (1998) and A WALK TO REMEMBER (1999)--both of which have achieved best-seller status. MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE was adapted for film in 1999 and starred Kevin Costner, Paul Newman, and Robin Wright Penn.
Praise
"The story...is typically Sparksian, an engaging if heavily telegraphed stew of romance, betrayal, and youthful discovery, garnished with a heavy dollop of Christianity. Fans of THE NOTEBOOK...will gobble it up with glee, right through the tear-duct-milking finale."
From the Publisher
Annotation Nicholas Sparks creates another moving portrait of young love, this time centered on "Ronnie" Miller, a New York teen who remains actively dysfunctional three years after her parents' divorce. The rebellious Ronnie is sent to spend the summer with her father in North Carolina, in the hopes that the soothing coastal atmosphere may calm her troubled soul. Instead, she finds herself possessed by the passions of her first love, and she must decide whether to fight these frightening new feelings or surrender to them and risk losing the spirit which forms her identity. As usual, Sparks's readers are encouraged to keep a hanky handy to catch the delirious tears which are sure to result from this heartfelt tale of what happens when two forms of love--familial and romantic--come in conflict.
