THE NOTEBOOK BY NICHOLAS SPARKS
PAPERBACK PUBLISHED BY SPHERE
ONCE AGAIN, JUST AS I DO EVERY DAY I BEGIN TO READ THE NOTEBOOK ALOUD
I want all of you, forever, and me, every day.
Noah Calhoun has returned from the war and, in an attempt to escape the ghosts of battle, he sets his mind and his body to restoring an old plantation home to its former beauty.
But, he is haunted by memories of the beautiful girl he met there years before. A girl who stole his heart at the funfair, whose parents didn’t approve a girl he wrote to every day for a year.
When Allie Hamilton shows up on his doorstep, exactly as he has held her in his memory for all these years, Noah has one last chance to win her back. Only this time, it’s not just her parents in the way Allie is engaged and she’s not a woman to go back on her promise.
I love reading Nicholas Sparks books and watching his films, including I have seen The Notebook film with Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling and now read this exclusive new edition too, that this month Sphere are publishing this beautiful new edition to mark the 25th anniversary of Nicholas Sparks classic and enduring love story. What a gorgeous way to celebrate Nicholas Sparks The Notebook, I absolutely love the cover with the gold edge. I’m so happy the Notebook has been released as it’s celebrating 25 years of the world’s favourite love story. This special edition of The notebook has an exclusive interview with the author, it’s about the real-life couple who inspired the story and why he changed their story a little. If you haven’t read The Return then you’re in for a treat as at the end of the story The Notebook , there is the prologue and chapter one, of The Return. Another bonus is there is a picture and the blurb of every book Nicholas Sparks has written.
FROM PAGE 6
It was early October 1946, and Noah Calhoun watched the fading sun sink lower from the wrap around porch of his plantation- style home. He liked to sit here in the evenings, especially after working hard all day, and let his thoughts wander without conscious direction. It was how he relaxed, a routine he’d learned from his father.
He especially liked to look at the trees and their reflections in the river. North Carolina trees are beautiful in deep autumn: greens, yellows, reds, oranges, every shade in between. The dazzling colours glow with the sun, and for the hundredth time, Noah Calhoun wondered if the original owners of the house had spent their evenings thinking the same things.
The house was built in 1772, making it one of the oldest, as well as largest, homes in New Bern . Originally it was the main house on a working plantation, and he had bought it right after the war ended and had spent the last eleven months and a small fortune repairing it.
