THE BEST OF ME is the heart-rending story of two small-town former high school sweethearts from opposite sides of the tracks. Now middle-aged, they’ve taken wildly divergent paths, but neither has lived the life they imagined . . . and neither can forget the passionate first love that forever altered their world. When they are both called back to their hometown for the funeral of the mentor who once gave them shelter, they will be forced to confront the choices each has made, and ask whether love can truly rewrite the past.

My Review:

Nicholas Sparks is known to pull on your heart strings with his stories. The Best of Me is no exception.

Do you ever really get over your first true love? We tend to always remember and relive events of that relationship in your minds and hearts. Dawson and Amanda are no different. They are the typical star cross lovers with Dawson being the typical boy from the wrong side of the tracks.

They grow up and lead their own separate lives until the passing of a mutual friend. Suddenly they are back where it all started. Will they rekindle their romance? Is it too late for these two?

I loved reading about Dawson and Amanda. I found myself rooting for them time and time again. This was an easy read and got lost in the story.
