In The Lucky One, bestselling author Nicholas Sparks tells the unforgettable story of a man whose brushes with death lead him to the love of his life.

After US Marine Logan Thibault finds a photograph of a smiling young woman buried in the dirt during his tour of duty in Iraq, he experiences a sudden streak of luck. Only his best friend, Victor, seems to have an explanation for his good fortune: the photograph must be his lucky charm.

Back home in Colorado, when he can’t seem to get the woman in the photograph out of his mind, Thibault sets out on a journey across the country to find her. But he is caught off guard by the strong attraction he feels for Elizabeth, the woman he encounters in North Carolina, and he keeps the story of the photo—and his luck—a secret. As they embark upon a passionate love affair, his secret soon threatens to tear them apart, destroying not only their love but their lives as well.

Filled with tender romance and riveting suspense, The Lucky One is an unforgettable story about the surprising paths our lives often take—and the power of fate to guide us to true and everlasting love.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Worth spending a night with.”

    People

  • “A page-turner.”

    Glamour

  • “One traces a path so ephemeral and artful that we would know that Nicholas Sparks had written it even if his name did not appear on the title page. This story about a man whose scrape with death leads to his one true love will keep you up at night and then make you sleep more soundly. Inimitable storytelling.”

    Barnes & Noble editorial review

  • “Sparks writes with a depth of feeling and a tenderness rarely seen in male authors.”

    Peterborough Evening Telegraph

  • “John Bedford Lloyd delivers a solid performance. Lloyd’s deep bass tone is perfectly suited for Thibault, a manly man if ever there was one. Lloyd’s supporting characters are rich and interesting in their own right, some speaking in comical Southern drawls, others with a raw reality. The final result is quite touching.”

    Publishers Weekly audio review

  • “Strong, determined characters make this an excellent piece of escapist lit. Narrator John Bedford Lloyd handles the Southern accents with ease, believably voicing characters of both genders. Romance fans will enjoy this.”

    Library Journal audio review

  • A New York Times Bestseller
