    There are stories that rise from mysterious, unknown places, and others that are discovered, a gift from someone else. Found near a sandy dune, on an actual stretch of North Carolina beach, sits a community mailbox owned by no one and everyone A character in its own right, Kindred Spirit rests atop a driftwood post, waiting to share the hopes and dreams entrusted by past visitors, along with this resounding message love endures Letters and photocopied drawings available for perusal during the time of Nicholas Sparks own visit to the box, served as the catalyst, prompting him to track down the couple behind the heartfelt words Ultimately, it was their journey that provided the inspiration for this story within a story and the author s mighty return to his roots the telling of a love so intense, it s felt with the reader s every breath and turn of the page And so it begins, with fate placing Tru and Hope on the same stretch of beach The destiny that matters most in anyone s life is the one concerning love. A plane ticket and a plea from Tru s estranged father brings him halfway around the world from the the bush in Zimbabwe to the coast of North Carolina His time abroad proves to be life altering giving him the opportunity to lay eyes on his father for the very first time and the introduction to the one person he never knew his soul yearned for It s the misadventures of the rambunctious terrier staying in the beach cottage next door that brings about the meet cute Decompressing from the stressors wreaking emotional havoc, Hope s intention is to spend a few days alone at her family s beach house to gain some much needed clarity The furthest thing from her mind, meeting a man like Tru Pivotal days including a trip to Kindred Spirit force Hope and Tru to make hard and fast decisions What are they willing to sacrifice for the type of love experienced only once in a lifetime This is where things get a tad tricky for me The very place where Nicholas Sparks makes me gnaw on my own words and admit I just might be a bit of hypocrite I ve made it clear loudly, and than a few times insta love doesn t work for me in any capacity But, and this is a HUGE but, Nicholas Sparks seems to be the outlier and here s why Glossing over the development of those lovey dovey emotions on the front end of the falling is typical for him, opting instead to sell the reader on the back end And you know what, it works Once that declaration of love is released into the fictional universe, it s game on as the full force, feel it in your bones, your heart wants to explode from all of the giddiness feelings takes over So, regardless of how few days it takes Hope and Tru to transition from strangers to lovers, the intensity of their connection is undeniable As a seasoned Sparks reader, I d be remiss if I didn t mention that Every Breath went a long way to piece together the shambles Two By Two left my heart in Kudos to Sparks for trying something different with his previous two releases, but neither worked well for this love obsessed heart of mine See Me felt like a detour and Two By Two felt like a completely wrong turn Both forcing me to ponder, had the king of romance lost his touch Nope Leave it to the wonders of Kindred Spirit to inspire a story reminiscent of the author s greats I think a trip of my own is imminent THANK YOU to Grand Central for providing a copy in exchange for my honest review.

    Spoilers ahead I just finished Every Breath this morning and it turned out to be pretty good Once I got about half way through I was leary with the direction the book was taking, but by the end it came together nicely.Hope is in a relationship that she isn t exactly content with Her boyfriend Josh doesn t seem to be committing and after six years she wonders what their future holds Her dad has been diagnosed with a debilitating health condition and she doesn t know how much time they have left together She plans a visit to their family cottage on Sunset Beach because her family has decided to sell it and she needs to help prepare During that week, Hope meets Tru who is on a temporary visit from Africa to meet his father for the first time Tru s hope is to learn about his mother while he s there When Tru and Hope meet, they have a genuine interest in each other It s love at first sight and they can t stop thinking about one another Through the window, he was able to see into the kitchen as Hope emerged from around the corner, a towel draped over her shoulder, and pulled two cups from the cabinet She interested him That she was beautiful there was no doubt, but it wasn t simply that There was an air of vulnerability and loneliness behind her smile, as if she was wrestling with something troubling Maybe even a few somethings As their time comes to a close, their family circumstances get in the way and they have to make a difficult decision regarding their future together Will they follow their hearts Nicholas Sparks writes beautiful romances I ve been reading his books for as long as I can remember and I m used to his writing With that said, the romance in this book felt like insta love and went way to quick for me The two meet they are totally physically attracted to one another then they are in love in just a matter of a few days Don t get me wrong, it s not that I don t think two people can have a quick connection like Tru and Hope did, it s just that for me it felt rushed and I wanted development to their relationship Another issue I had was that even with the strong connection they feel for each other, they go separate ways and live separate lives, and decades later they still feel the same It s like this huge piece of their time apart never happened even with zero communication in between I get that we make decisions in life and we have to take the road that follows, but feeling as strong as these two did and knowing the options that Hope had in her current relationship, their decisions just didn t feel right to me I wanted them to stay together and it just wasn t going to happen, but regardless, I found it to be a good story These are just my personal opinions on the story itself based on the characters backgrounds and choices.I still enjoyed the book I loved that even though it s a work of fiction, parts of it were true I even had a few tears as they read through some of the letters from Kindred Spirit a mailbox in North Carolina that really exists The writing is beautiful and detailed The characters had depth with their own histories It just really felt good to get back into a Spark s novel.3.5 stars rounded up.You can see all my reviews www.readrantrockandroll.com

    I loved this novel For those that enjoy a timeless, classic, romantic love story.check this one out From the beginning author s introduction from Nicholas Sparks to the very end, I was fully enraptured and captivated As so many important novels do, it had me thinking about life and circumstance throughout reading and left me with similar questioning thoughts once I turned the last page This book has all the makings of a love story to remember from the characters strength, resilience, and loyalty to the moments that squeeze your heart with heartbreak for situations that no one should have to go through This novel was relatable for any age whether young or old and I can only imagine that many like me could see themselves in these character s shoes for different moments of their lives Whether it be for making that difficult decision that alters a life s path or dealing with the grief of loss that only comes from living and loving.For those that are a fan of Nicholas Sparks novels, you will not be disappointed with this one It has all the telltale signs of what he is rightfully known for It s one of those stories that only he can tell best Thank you to Hachette Book Group Canada for sending me an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review

    This was a simple and yet very unique love story The love story itself was complex, as much happened around it, but the idea of having two people meet, fall in love and then go through hardships will not boggle anyone s mind It s the events that lead to those things that will fascinate the readers and make them read on and on and on until they finish this book in a single day.That s what happened to me I don t know if it s because I was procrastinating with my school work or because this truly was a gripping story probably the latter but I could not get enough of this book Unlike it is the case with many other of Nicholas Sparks written works, every single sentence written in this story felt like it mattered There was also a healthy balance of description and dialog, both things Nicholas Sparks has mastered wonderfully.Interestingly enough, while the character of Hope Anderson was spotlighted than that of Tru Walls, Tru was the one who captured my heart With Hope, the emphasis was on her marital situation, whereas with Tru it was on his background, his family, and that was something that resonated better with me Moreover, for the first time in a while, I got attached to a location featured in a story the beach where Tru and Hope spent lovely moments together which eventually becomes symbolic of their relationship, as does the mailbox I am very pleased with Nicholas Sparks He does play with the reader, which he probably enjoyed but I don t think was necessary Regardless, I thoroughly believed in this love story and it made me feel good inside, despite the hardships the two main characters faced.Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin

    Title Every BreathSeries StandaloneAuthor Nicholas SparksRelease date October 16, 2018 Every Breath had a lot of promise to be a big winner for me, but unfortunately it didn t reach my expectations Based on the synopsis, it sounded like an emotional ill fated love story with the potential for a second chance later in life How long can a dream survive it poses Mistakes were inevitable, and she d concluded that regrets could impart important lessons in life, if one was willing to learn from them And in that sense, she realized that her father had been only half correct about memories They weren t, after all, only doorways to the past She wanted to believe that they could also be doorways to a new and different kind of future.I knew that a happy ending isn t guaranteed, and while that s preferable, if the message in the story at least leaves me introspective and moved then I m satisfied I didn t come away from the book feeling happy with the events that took place, in fact, I was frustrated and left wanting There were several things that contributed to that, and I ll get to that in a minute Tru Walls is a safari guide from Zimbabwe who is visiting North Carolina for the first time on a life changing trip He s a man of simple needs who loves his son dearly, but as much as he loved his ex wife, they couldn t make their marriage work They wanted different things out of life she wanted a husband who would be home , he wanted to continue the career he loved amongst the land and wildlife where he felt most at peace This is one area where he was unwilling to compromise, and they parted on amicable terms There isn t much that would tempt him to leave the country and take time away from his son Except learning about his biological father and unlocking answers to questions he has about his mother For that, he agrees to meet with the man who has reached out to him, and the uncertainty of what he will uncover has him than a little unsettled Hope Anderson is staying nearby at her parents cottage on the beach with her own worries consuming her Her father has just been diagnosed with ALS, and with that earth shattering news, the future is a scary thing to imagine Will her parents have enough money for his care as his health deteriorates How will she deal with seeing her wonderful father slowly waste away before her eyes And then she has things of a personal nature plaguing her mind The relationship with her boyfriend of six years is once again on rocky terms, and she s at a crossroads Attending her friend s wedding by herself while he parties in Vegas with his friends, she knows something has to give As much as she doesn t want to believe she s wasting her time with him, she can t help but feel like marriage and a family may never be in the cards Motherhood has always been something she expected to achievebut than that, needed to achieve Now her biological clock is ticking away as she counts the minutes passing her by Both Hope and Tru were dealing with very heavy decisions that would forever alter the course of their life It was a time for introspection and self discovery Then they cross paths and begin a friendship that very quickly evolves into a complication that neither was expecting When I say very quickly, I m talking about a matter of one day We met on a Wednesday morning, and I d fallen in love with him by Thursday evening.This was a major issue for me Sparks was going for a soulmates destiny magical feeling about this couple based on how they instantly felt emotions that couldn t be explained I m not necessarily against that in books, but in this case it made their supposed depth of feelings seem artificial and shallow In short, I just didn t believe it The actual development of their romance was almost non existent in the book Which made the unchanged intensity of their feelings after 25 years to be laughable On one hand, this was a fairy tale type of romance On the other, it was bone jarringly realistic in regards to the effects of Hope s rash choices I don t think you can have it both ways and end up with a cohesive plot Part two was a juxtaposition of regrets and hope for both characters The big question was which one was the end point in it all We get a long examination of their life stories over the last two and a half decades Family, successes, failures, and pondering if things could have been better if another path had been chosen To be frank, I started to skim some of these pages after a while because the story started to lose me If I had agreed with Hope and liked her , I might have cared at this point Unfortunately I got annoyed at her selfishness, and the ignorance of her decision Yes, she achieved her ultimate goal, but at what cost She had alternatives that would have given her the same results, but refused to compromise on her needs view spoiler Here s my problem with that Tru was willing to give up his entire world and rearrange his life plans for the woman he loved This is something that he couldn t do for his first wife, but his feelings were so strong for Hope that he would do anything to make it easier for her to choose him He proved his love beyond a doubt by his actions She didn t I understood her needing to be near her father in his final years That s admirable, and beyond blame However, she turned down his offer for him to move to the US, because adopting children wouldn t be the same as having biological children Knowing Tru was sterile was the deciding factor in the entire affair I m sorry, but that is unbelievably awful and selfish She chose a man whom she felt lackluster about in comparison to Tru who brought peace and happiness The idea that adopted children are somehow less than biological is ignorant, and it made me angry that she put that at the top of her priorities She didn t want a big wedding because she had no desire to smile through the faux romance of a fairy tale wedding By then, after all, she understood the nature of romance, and knew it had little to do with trying to create a fantasy Real romance was spontaneous, unpredictable, and could be as simple as listening to a man read a love letter found in a lonely mailbox on a stormy September afternoon She didn t even see a future with this man as a real romance Yet she accepted his marriage proposal so he could be her designated baby maker Not to mention how hypocritical she was In the beginning she was doubting her boyfriend s faithfulness and didn t know if she could trust him He had slept with other women during their frequent and brief break ups And yet she can take a call from him at the cottage, and a few minutes later sleep with another man with a complete lack of conscience She sat in judgement of his cheating when she did the same thing and didn t even have the decency to come clean and tell him before accepting his proposal This was all and I quote in the hope of sparing his feelings hide

    MY REVIEW can also be found on my blog KITTY KATS CRAZY ABOUT BOOKS In the romantic tradition of The Notebook and Nights in Rodanthe Nicholas Sparks brings us EVERY BREATH which Is a full length, stand alone romance novel.Like previous novels by this author he has such an uncanny knack of weaving a magic spell over his readers Every Breath is no different, unique in every way, it drew me in as soon as I started reading it In this we re introduced to forty two year old Tru, an unconventional man of many layers, a guide on a game reserve in Zimbabwe where he d worked for the past ten years Divorced with one child.Out of the blue a letter arrives for him, inside are two plane tickets, a later accompanied with an old photograph written and sent by his biological father whom he has never met Within the letter it is stated that he is dying Not long on USA soil and settling into his father s house on the beach he s returning a dog to his neighbour that had been knocked by a car.When he first laid eyes on Hope She was beautiful, with untamed auburn hair and eyes the colour of turquoise Almost at once something inside him began to stir, something that made him feel a bit nervous, the way he always felt in the presence of a beautiful woman Thirty six year old Hope is packing up her parents cottage which had just recently sold and is preparing attending her friends wedding without her long term boyfriend by her side, she works as a trauma nurse in the ER and at this stage was unmarried and without children As soon as these two clap eyes on each other there is an instant feeling of attraction, a feeling of coming home after a long trip away, as though they have known each other for many years A heartbreaking journey that hit all the feels, an unpredictable, unique kind of read Highly recommend.

    starsThe king of contemporary romance fiction returns with a brand new love story titled, Every Breath This is a love at first sight classic romance, that sees destiny play a huge role in shaping the lives of two individuals, Tru and Hope Sparks describes his latest novel as a classic story of lovers long denied I think this quote perfectly summarises what you can expect when you pick up Every Breath.The latest novel from Nicholas Sparks begins with Tru, a guide from Zimbabwe, who is called the US on a relatively short trip to connect with his biological father and learn about his mother before his father passes away Alongside Tru s story is Hope Anderson s journey Hope is a woman who is unsure of where her life is going She is in a relationship that doesn t seem to be progressing, or making her happy She also is faced with some tough choices in North Carolina, where she is visiting her ill father Every Breath is the heart pounding story of how these two strangers fall quickly and deeply in love, but they face immense complications A decision is made and the two go their separate ways, living on opposite sides of the world and inhabiting very different life paths.It is always a comfort to return to the writing of an author that you have followed for some time I first began my love affair with the work of Nicholas Sparks back in 2012, where I read book after book of his work I do suspect that my interest in his work began prior to 2012, when I first read The Notebook, a timeless love story In Every Breath, the latest novel from Nicholas Sparks, we are reminded why he rules the roost in terms of contemporary romance I can t think of another male author that is able to capture to heart, feelings and emotions that Nicholas Sparks seems to so easily convey through the pages of his novel.So this time around, Every Breath introduces two protagonists who have their own troubles and colourful back stories For Tru, his life in Zimbabwe really makes this novel stand out The sequences featuring Tru s life in Africa had me utterly entranced Sparks does an excellent job of bringing this country to the pages of his novel I felt like I had been transported to Zimbabwe in these scenes and many times I imagined myself standing there right beside Tru This is perhaps an indication of the research Sparks has undertaken on this part of the world and his true passion for Africa Then we have Hope I enjoyed Hope s story and I genuinely liked her as character There were a few choices that she made that didn t quite stick well with me, but I feel in the spirit of the book, it did work well Through Hope, Sparks explores medical issues and an illness I won t say much as I wish to avoid spoilers I thought this aspect of the novel was handled with sensitivity and insight by Sparks.Apart from Tru and Hope, the other major character in this novel is the magical mailbox, Kindred Spirit , which is situated in the North Carolina setting of Every Breath I have to say, as of fan of letter writing, this was a big drawcard for me I also loved the fact that it was based on a real life story of a mailbox situated in an isolated location in the US This letterbox has seen people freely drop letters in to those they cannot write or get a letter to, for reasons unknown I just wished we had one here in Australia, it is such a touching gesture, especially in a world where the art of letter writing seems to be disappearing at a rapid rate I loved how Sparks tied this idea into his novel, it worked well and it added another vital layer to the book.For those expecting a great romance from Nicholas Sparks, I don t think you will be disappointed For me personally, Every Breath wasn t quite up there with my favourite Sparks novel, Dear John, but it was an enjoyable read I will say that Every Breath is a book that will conjure up a variety of emotions from happiness, to sadness, joy, frustration and it does leave you with hope The love that surrounds Tru and Hope is one that is separated by time, life choices, ill fated decisions and reconnection It was nice to revisit this couple many decades after their first meeting However, I would have loved to have gleaned about their initial relationship spark, those magical five days of instant love on the beach in North Carolina captured my heart.Fans old and new will appreciate the classic romantic sojourn Every Breath represents, through the capable hands of master storyteller Nicholas Sparks Every Breath is a really lovely story, with a beautiful set of characters.Every Breath by Nicholas Sparks is published by Hachette Australia 32.99 Out now.https www.hachette.com.au nicholas I wish to thank Hachette Australia for providing a copy of this book for review purposes.

    read in audiobook format not the kind i was hoping for from nicholas sparks, but it was still a beautiful sappy love story albeit one that was also too farfetched i mean, isn t that the case with this author though his books seem to always have some kind of tragic irony and a touch of miracle happening inside that sometimes come off a little contrived and overdramatic 2.5 TEPID LOVE stars while this author has successfully made falling in love with someone after only being in their company for a short period of time a couple of days sounds magnetic and magical, it s also kind of unrealistic.add to that, the fact that they eventually go separate ways bcs fate has other plans for them and never meet each other again until they re both in their fifties already married and have families of their own , all the while they are also still holding on to that great love feeling for one another, is profound and beautiful but also really baffling.idk i m young and have never been in love with someone to the point i could never really completely move on from them so excuse me if i m feeling skeptical and i sound bitter.also, reading this book felt like reading an autobiography i mean, i don t remember ever reading an autobiography to really pinpoint the difference but with all the 20 years fast forward and how the story is narrated, the book did to me telling than showing.while it was sad and heartbreaking to see that fate seems to always work against these two characters, it was also very frustrating what s the point of putting myself through all these melancholy if they are never going to end up together in the first place i mean, maybe it s supposed to put emphasize on their undying love despite what life throws at them and blah blah but even i didn t really feel their electrifying connection bcs like i said the book did telling than showing i admit though that the not so happy ending makes much sense than if they were to end up happily ever after.
