This book was a really good book. The auther, Nicholas Sparks has alot of good books but i really liked this one. It was about a guy named John who had trouble getting along with his father and went into a rebelion stage before he decided to join the army. After serving a few years in the army he comes back on leave and meets a girl named Samantha and falls in love with her. They go through alot together and it is such a romantic and tuching story that i think everyone should read! It is by far the best book I have ever read!!
