Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A twist you won’t see coming. A love story you’ll never forget. From the acclaimed author of The Notebook comes a powerful novel about risking everything for a dream—and whether it’s possible to leave the past behind.
 
We don’t always get to choose our paths in life; sometimes they choose us.

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: PopSugar

After fleeing an abusive husband with her six-year-old son, Tommie, Beverly is attempting to create a new life for them in a small town off the beaten track. Despite their newfound freedom, Beverly is constantly on guard: she creates a fake backstory, wears a disguise around town, and buries herself in DIY projects to stave off anxiety. But her stress only rises when Tommie insists he’d been hearing someone walking on the roof and calling his name late at night. With money running out and danger seemingly around every corner, she makes a desperate decision that will rewrite everything she knows to be true. . . .
 
Meanwhile, Colby Mills is on a heart-pounding journey of another kind. A failed musician, he now heads a small family farm in North Carolina. Seeking a rare break from his duties at home, he spontaneously takes a gig playing in a bar in St. Pete Beach, Florida, where he meets Morgan Lee—and his whole life is turned upside-down.
 
The daughter of affluent Chicago doctors, Morgan has graduated from a prestigious college music program with the ambition to move to Nashville and become a star. Romantically and musically, she and Colby complete each other in a way that neither has ever known.
 
In the course of a single unforgettable week, two young people will navigate the exhilarating heights and heartbreak of first love. Hundreds of miles away, Beverly will put her love for her young son to the test. And fate will draw all three people together in a web of life-altering connections . . . forcing each to wonder whether the dream of a better life can ever survive the weight of the past.

    Dumb, dumb, dumb. Only a 16 year old girl would buy this story.

    Beautifully written and an enjoyable read. Fun twist to the story I didn’t see coming which made it even better. Reminded me of the feelings I had reading my all time favorite, “The Notebook”. ❤️

    Soo interesting from beginning to end. It was hard to put down even to answer the phone or the door. Haven’t enjoyed a book this much in years!
  • No wonder it’s only $2.99

    The first few chapters were slow catch my attention. Once we learn about Beverly, I️ was hooked and it went fast from there. Loved the ending.
  • Dreamland is amazing!

    Loved the leading into the Beverly story. Never had any idea what was really happening. I love all of Nicholas Sparks books. Keep them coming.
  • Worst Sparks book ever

    I’m a big fan. Have every one of his hardcover books in my library. But this one? The descriptions of clothing, food prep, social media, the music business, as well as mental and physical health issues read more like they were written by a teenager. Immensely disappointed.

    What a wonderful love story. Nicholas Sparks has done it again. Always need a box of tissues when your reading his stories.
