After thirty years of marriage, Wilson Lewis, son-in-law of Allie and Noah Calhoun, is forced to admit that the romance has gone out of his marriage. Desperate to win back his wife’s heart, he must figure out how to make her fall in love with him … again.

Despite the shining example of Allie and Noah’s marriage, Wilson is unable to easily express his emotions. A successful estate attorney, he has provided well for his family, but now, with his daughter’s upcoming wedding, he is forced to face the fact that he and Jane have grown apart and wonders if she even loves him anymore. But Wilson is sure of one thing—his love for his wife has only deepened and intensified over the years. Now, with the memories of his in-laws’ magnificent fifty-year love affair as his guide, Wilson struggles to find his way back into the heart of the woman he adores.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The wistful, reflective tone of Sparks’ newest love story shines through in Wopat’s competent telling…Snippets of music announce the beginning and end of each chapter and complement particularly emotional moments. While this sweetly sentimental audio may be too subdued for a long, tiring drive, it will satisfy listeners looking for a calming nighttime diversion.”

    Publishers Weekly (audio review)

  • “Using strong characterizations, Wopat seamlessly switches from male to female roles…This intense love story portrays the dilemma of feeling taken for granted by the most important person in one’s life and ends with a dramatic twist that brings a smile.”

  • “Sparks is at his romantic best in this tender love story about a flawed hero trying to right his wrongs.”

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackie | 1/28/2014

    " good read for sure. i even made my husband read the part where he did the surprise date because he wrote a lot of meaningful things. i gave it 4 stars only because i felt like some of the Noah storyline could have easily been taken out. for ex when Noah fell and was admitted to the hospital or the swan thing. i felt like it was filler material and took away from the love story of jane and wilson. the ending was unexpected and i didn't see that coming. i would recommended this to all married couples! "

    " This book was great! It started out nice and didn't seem like it was going to be anything great but the ending was fantastic. It was nice to see them fall in love again and see Noah. I had an inkling that it would end the way it did but the ending was still definitely an awesome surprise. It was so sweet. "
