Divorced and disillusioned about relationships, Theresa Osborne is jogging when she finds a bottle on the beach. Inside is a letter of love and longing to "Catherine," signed simply "Garrett." Challenged by the mystery and pulled by emotions she doesn't fully understand, Theresa begins a search for this man that will change her life. What happens to her is unexpected, perhaps miraculous-an encounter that embraces all our hopes for finding someone special, for having a love that is timeless and everlasting.... Nicholas Sparks exquisitely chronicles the human heart. In his first bestselling novel, The Notebook, he created a testament to romantic love that touched readers around the world. Now in this New York Times bestseller, he renews our faith in destiny, in the ability of lovers to find each other no matter where, no matter when...

Of all the books written by Nicholas Sparks which I have read already this one is the one I liked least. The story itself is beautiful but the book consists of lots of clichés and except of two things the reader is able to guess all of it before reading it… I like the way Sparks is telling the story. Also I really like the characters. But I miss the fact that there is no person who you don’t like. Even a bit. So the whole book is full of harmony and things like this. There are some dramatic scenes later in the book as well but actually I knew all the stuff before it happened… And then the story was over.

I rate the book 4 out of 5 stars because Nicholas Sparks told the story in  the best way an author is able to tell it and the characters were really great. So the bad thing about the book is just the story with its clichés.
