A great book to read for leisure time. While its first half--The Notebook--is highly romantic from the start, Sparks creates its perfect half--the love story that depicts a marriage that is falling downhill and needs rebuilding. Readers are spoken to by the husband who admits, maybe too late, that he needs to learn how to *do* and not just *say*.
“I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I've ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
"Marriage is about becoming a team.You're going to spend the rest of your lie learning about each other, and every now and then, things blow up. But the beauty of marriage is that if you picked the right person and you both love each other, you'll always figure out a way to get through it." Nicholas Sparks- At First Sight.
"But love, I've come to understand, is more than three words mumbled before bedtime. Love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day." - From the novel "The Wedding" by Nicholas Sparks
