There are a few things Jeremy Marsh was sure he’d never do: he’d never leave New York City; never give his heart away after barely surviving one failed marriage; and never become a parent.

Now Jeremy is living in the tiny town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, engaged to Lexie Darnell, the love of his life, and anticipating the start of their family. But just as his life seems to be settling into a blissful pattern, a mysterious and disturbing e-mail sets off a chain of events that will change the course of this young couple’s marriage.

How well do we really know the ones we love? How do we handle the inevitable doubts, fears concerning parenthood, and stumbling blocks that are sometimes placed in our way? Continuing the story of the young couple introduced in Sparks’ bestselling True Believer, this novel captures all the heartbreak, tension, romance, and surprises of those who are newly wed.

An astonishing tale about the love between a man and a woman and between a parent and a child, At First Sight is about endings that bring new beginnings, tragedies that lead to unexpected joy, and the magic of everlasting love. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Majorly manipulative and totally effective…Have plenty of tissues on hand.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “With his trademark sensitivity, Sparks delves into the nitty-gritty of relationships, and considers the sacrifices that each partner has to make in order to have a successful marriage. And readers beware: this is multiple-hankie romance.”

    Booklist

  • At First Sight is an easy read that should join Sparks’ earlier novels in stature.”

    Bookreporter

  • “David Aaron Baker reads this strange story in an appealing conversational style. When he characterizes Jeremy and Lexie arguing, he moves from good to excellent, catching the anger, jealousy, and fear of loss with exquisite voice and tone definition. He also excels when he portrays the psychic grandma, meddling mayor, and sullen ex-boyfriend.”

    " Meh - only ok. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mimochal | 2/13/2014

    " Very moving and attaching.. a heart-warming page-turner novel! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Johnson | 2/8/2014

    " Love Nicholas Sparks. He doesn't always have everything cookie cutter neat but is always believable. The emotion just pours through his writing. I have loved every single book of his. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zyza | 1/31/2014

    " As a continuation of "True Believer", it's something I was looking forward to. Its approach is different from the 1st Book since it is filled with excitement, suspicions, & extreme emotions. Sparks was able to make it up after showing the boredom side of the previous book & drag us to something intense. That intensity makes this book a page-turner, something we don't want to miss. The ending could be unexpected, but Sparks has a way of making his story worth-reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erika Nelson | 1/24/2014

    " So remember that horrible Jennifer Aniston movie that consisted entirely of her and some other guy breaking up and fighting and otherwise being miserable? This book was a lot like that. I kind of like the premise, it's a sequel to some other book of his where a couple falls madly in love toward the end (I assume, I haven't actually read the other book)and this book picks up where they commence living happily ever after. So it sets up a kind of interesting exploration of how a relationship changes and adapts after the fairytale ending bit. A lot of it is miserable though. I don't really want to read about other people bickering and otherwise suffering through misery. And just when they start being happy again, it gets WORSE! Yay! Why did I read this again? It is well-written though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rabecca | 1/22/2014

    " I love Nicholas Sparks as an author. However, this booked severely bored me. I didn't even make it past the first 5 chapters. Highly disappointed in this one of Sparks. I do not recommend it at all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina McCarty | 1/15/2014

    " Absolutely my favorite of his books hands down. What can I say? The amount of tears I shed makes for an amazing novel in my opinion... I read this years ago and remember crying from that specific moment (you know which one), until about 2 hours after finishing. It tore me apart. I thought I lost someone I knew. Lord have mercy what a great book!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Haneen | 1/8/2014

    " was ended depressing. I personally thought the first book was written better and the story line was more amusing and romantic. "

    " i liked it! but then i found out that True Believer and At First Sight were sequels! but instead i read At First Sight first not knowing it was the ending to True Believer :( "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay | 12/26/2013

    " My favorite part of Nicholas Sparks' books is that they are quick to read. This was a good tale that didn't involve cancer (as many of his books do) so I would recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristine | 12/19/2013

    " The main characters in this novel had annoying personalities that I just couldn't get past. Lexi especially seemed like a selfish person, expecting everything to be her way. The ending was a little redeeming, but on the whole, I think Nicholas Sparks has written better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret | 6/19/2013

    " Another emotional rollercoast of a ride! But an absolutely beautiful ending. I could not put this one down and finished it within 24 hours of starting it. But, this book should be read after reading True Believer as it is really the sequel to that story. "

    " Usually the book is so much better than the movie but in Nicholas Sparks case, I'm always disappointed with his books. They always seem to fall flat with me. They are predictable and boring. I don't think I'm going to read anymore of his books unless I get them for free. "
