A Walk to Remember Review

Do you remember your very first true love? Or, like me, are you still waiting on it to come along? The number one New York Times bestselling romance novelist Nicholas Sparks outdoes himself in A Walk to Remember, a touching and timeless story of young love.

Landon Carter, a typical high school boy has known Jamie Sullivan his entire life and never given her much thought. Desperate for a homecoming date, he resorts to Jamie, the daughter of the local Baptist minister. She agrees on one condition, he had to promise not to fall in love with her.

Through drama class and the annual production of the Christmas pageant, Landon and Jamie get to know each other. In a predictable fashion, he falls for her, the nerdy girl in a brown cardigan who is never without her Bible.

Landon must overcome his insecurities about being seen in public with Jamie before their love can truly take flight. In the winter months, Landon becomes completely smitten with Jamie, who obviously likes him too, but is holding something back.

Can their young love stand the tests of God's plan?

This book is both heartwarming and tear jerking. I recommend it to anyone with a romantic side or anyone looking for a good cry. A Walk to Remember is a great valentine read.
