At 45, Adrienne Willis must rethink her entire life when her husband abandons her for a younger woman. Reeling with heartache, and in search of a respite, she flees to the small coastal town of Rodanthe, North Carolina, to tend to a friend’s inn for the weekend. But when a major storm starts moving in, it appears that Adrienne’s perfect getaway will be ruined—until a guest named Paul Flanner arrives.

At 54, Paul has just sold his medical practice and come to Rodanthe to escape his own shattered past. Now, with the storm closing in, two wounded people will turn to each other for comfort—and in one weekend set in motion feelings that will resonate throughout the rest of their lives.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Ladies and gentlemen, start your tear ducts…Sparks doesn’t stray too far from his bittersweet, lost-love formula…but you’ll cry in spite [of] yourself.”


  • “A page-turner.”

    Connecticut Post

  • “Two lonely people come together and find the kind of deep, committed love that has been absent from their lives for too long…Nicholas Sparks has done it again.”

    Forth Worth Star-Telegram

  • “In the best tradition of Robert James Waller…Nicholas Sparks ventures into a genre ruled, almost exclusively, by women. Nights in Rodanthe will be popular with lovers of tasteful romantic fiction.”

    Martha’s Vineyard Times

  • “The intense yet short-lived romance in Nicholas Sparks’ novel, Nights in Rodanthe…offers a story that is…passionate and memorable…Sparks’ smooth, sensitive writing and simple story line that doesn’t end with every wish coming true make this a novel that can hold its own.”

    Associated Press

  • “Sparks…is back at it with his latest mix of love story and pathos. He doesn’t disappoint…Sparks has a very solid fan base, and they will be clamoring for his latest.”


  • “JoBeth Williams’ tender narration captures the introspection and sadness of Adrienne’s tale, as well as its passion. Her detached portrayal of Paul and Adrienne’s lives before they find each other conveys all the flatness of their existence, despite the many events filling their days…Soft piano interludes elegantly separate chapters and polish the finished work.”

    " I didn't really want to like this book. I've always thought Nicholas Sparks is so commercial. I really liked this book. Recommend it to anyone who is a romantic a heart. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Darren | 2/3/2014

    " This one was ok, but not one of my favorites. Similar to Message in a Bottle, this is not the typical "happily ever after" that we've come to expect from the typical love story novel. However, it is entertaining and an easy book to read. Not my first choice, but not my last either. "
