"Somewhere," muses Noah Calhoun, while sitting on his porch in the moonight, "there were people making love." The Notebook, a Southern-fried story of love-lost-and-found-again, revolves around a single time-honored romantic dilemma: will beautiful Allison Nelson stay with Mr. Respectability (to whom she happens to be engaged), or will she hook up with Noah, the romantic rascal she left so many years ago? We're not telling, but you have two guesses and the first one doesn't count. Decades later, after Allison develops Alzheimer's, her beau uses "the notebook" to read her the story of the great love she's plumb forgot. From Goodreads.
A heart-warming story about a romance that spans a whole lifetime. It also tells about some of the heartbreak a lot of relatives of Alzheimer patients go through. Well worth the read and I am looking forward to reading more books by Nicholas Sparks.
