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
"More Hallmarkiana, from a shameless expert in the genre."
From the Publisher
Annotation When single mom Denise Holton moves to Edenton, North Carolina, all she's looking for is a quiet town in which to raise her son, Kyle. But when a handsome contractor named Taylor McAden saves Kyle's life in the wake of a car accident, Denise finds romantic bliss as well--for a little while. A tragedy in Taylor's past may prevent him from fully returning Denise's love, unless she can help him exorcise his demons.
Editors Note Reluctant to take chances in the world of romance, volunteer firefighter Taylor McAden experiences a dramatic change of heart after a near-fatal automobile accident leads to a fateful encounter with Denise Holden, a single mother who has just moved to the small town of Edenton, North Carolina to build a new life for herself. Reprint.
Editors Note 2 Volunteer fireman Taylor McAden is driven to take terrifying, heroic risks to save lives. But there's one leap into the unknown he can't bring himself to make: He can't fall in love. A man who likes to rescue troubled women, he inevitably leaves them as soon as they want more from him. Then, one day, a record-breaking storm hits his small Southern town, and Taylor comes across a young single mother named Denise Holton in a crashed car. When she revives, Taylor finds himself looking for her missing son-and involved in a rescue different from all the others. This one will require him to open doors to his past slammed shut by pain. And with Denise's help, dare him to make the greatest commitment of all: love someone forever.
