Every so often a love story so captures our hearts that it becomes more than a story—it becomes an experience to remember forever. The Notebook is such a book. It is a celebration of how passion can be ageless and timeless, a tale that moves us to laughter and tears and makes us believe in true love all over again.

At thirty-one, Noah Calhoun, back in coastal North Carolina after World War II, is haunted by images of the girl he lost more than a decade earlier. At twenty-nine, socialite Allie Nelson is about to marry a wealthy lawyer, but she cannot stop thinking about the boy who long ago stole her heart. Thus begins the story of a love so enduring and deep it can turn tragedy into triumph and may even have the power to create a miracle.

    " I loved the movie so thought I would check out the book. I found it to be a quick and easy read and I enjoyed it. The movie is far more enjoyable though. "

    " I wanted to read this after seeing the movie - just to see if any details were left out. I'm really glad that I did because there was more explanation behind certain events and relationships that aren't fully elaborated on in the movie. If you have time to read this, you should. "
