In this #1 New York Times bestselling follow-up to True Believer, a young couple’s love faces the ultimate test when the past disrupts the life and family they’ve built together. There are a few things Jeremy Marsh was sure he’d never do: he’d never leave New York City; never give his heart away again after barely surviving one failed marriage; and, most of all, never become a parent. Now, Jeremy is living in the tiny town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, married to Lexie Darnell, the love of his life, and anticipating the birth of their daughter. But just as his life seems to be settling into a blissful pattern, an unsettling and mysterious message re-opens old wounds and sets off a chain of events that will forever change the course of this young couple’s marriage. Dramatic, heartbreaking and surprising, this is a story about the love between a man and a woman and between a parent and a child. More than that, it is a story that beautifully portrays how the same emotion that can break your heart is also the one that will ultimately heal it. While the novel picks up the tale of Lexie Darnell and Jeremy Marsh that started in True Believer and will delight fans of that novel, it stands on its own as one of Nicholas Sparks’s most deeply moving love stories.

See me just as I see you . . . Colin Hancock is giving his second chance his best shot. With a history of violence and bad decisions behind him and the threat of prison dogging his every step, he’s determined to walk a straight line. To Colin, that means applying himself single-mindedly toward his teaching degree and avoiding everything that proved destructive in his earlier life. Reminding himself daily of his hard-earned lessons, the last thing he is looking for is a serious relationship. Maria Sanchez, the hardworking daughter of Mexican immigrants, is the picture of conventional success. With a degree from Duke Law School and a job at a prestigious firm in Wilmington, she is a dark-haired beauty with a seemingly flawless professional track record. And yet Maria has a traumatic history of her own, one that compelled her to return to her hometown and left her questioning so much of what she once believed. A chance encounter on a rain-swept road will alter the course of both Colin and Maria’s lives, challenging deeply held assumptions about each other and ultimately, themselves. As love unexpectedly takes hold between them, they dare to envision what a future together could possibly look like . . . until menacing reminders of events in Maria’s past begin to surface. As a series of threatening incidents wreaks chaos in Maria’s life, Maria and Colin will be tested in increasingly terrifying ways. Will demons from their past destroy the tenuous relationship they’ve begun to build, or will their love protect them, even in the darkest hour? Rich in emotion and fueled with suspense, SEE ME reminds us that love is sometimes forged in the crises that threaten to shatter us . . . and that those who see us for who we truly are may not always be the ones easiest to recognize.

From the dark days of WWII to present-day North Carolina, this New York Times bestseller shares the lives of two couples overcoming destructive secrets — and finding joy together. Ira Levinson is in trouble. Ninety-one years old and stranded and injured after a car crash, he struggles to retain consciousness until a blurry image materializes beside him: his beloved wife Ruth, who passed away nine years ago. Urging him to hang on, she forces him to remain alert by recounting the stories of their lifetime together – how they met, the precious paintings they collected together, the dark days of WWII and its effect on them and their families. Ira knows that Ruth can’t possibly be in the car with him, but he clings to her words and his memories, reliving the sorrows and everyday joys that defined their marriage. A few miles away, at a local bull-riding event, a Wake Forest College senior’s life is about to change. Recovering from a recent break-up, Sophia Danko meets a young cowboy named Luke, who bears little resemblance to the privileged frat boys she has encountered at school. Through Luke, Sophia is introduced to a world in which the stakes of survival and success, ruin and reward — even life and death – loom large in everyday life. As she and Luke fall in love, Sophia finds herself imagining a future far removed from her plans — a future that Luke has the power to rewrite . . . if the secret he’s keeping doesn’t destroy it first. Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common, and who are separated by years and experience. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.

If you had one wish, what would you wish for?From the New York Times bestselling author of The Notebook, The Longest Ride and The Return comes a novel about the enduring legacy of first love, and the decisions that haunt us forever.1996 was the year that changed everything for Maggie Dawes – the year she turned 16 and was sent away to live with an aunt she barely knew in Ocracoke, a remote village on North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Lonely and miserable, she can think only of the friends and family she’d left behind .. . until one day her aunt introduces her to Bryce Trickett, one of the few teenagers on the island. Despite her unhappy circumstances, Maggie recognizes right away that Bryce is extraordinary – as different from the boys she knew at home as a diamond from a rhinestone. Handsome, genuine, and exceptional enough to be admitted to West Point, Bryce gradually shows her how much there is to love about the isolated, wind-swept beach town, even in the off-season — and also introduces her to photography, a passion that will define the rest of her life . . . much like Bryce.By 2019, Maggie is a renowned travel photographer living in New York City. At 37, she splits her time between running a successful gallery and photographing remote and iconic locations around the world. But this year she finds herself unexpectedly grounded in New York during the Christmas holidays, struggling to come to terms with a newly sobering medical diagnosis. Increasingly dependent on a young assistant to manage the gallery’s business, she finds herself becoming surprisingly close with the earnest young man; and as they count down the last days of the season together, she begins to tell him the story of another Christmas, decades earlier – and the love that set her on a course she never could have imagined for herself.A heart-wrenching story about discovery and loss, The Wish is a reminder that time with those precious to us is the greatest gift of all.*Praise for Nicholas Sparks:’This one won’t leave a dry eye’ Daily Mirror’A fiercely romantic and touching tale’ Heat’An A-grade romantic read’ OK!’Pulls at the heartstrings’ Sunday Times’An absorbing page-turner’ Daily Mail
