Publisher's Summary

In the romantic tradition of The Notebook and Nights in Rodanthe, number-one New York Times best-selling author Nicholas Sparks returns with a story about a chance encounter that becomes a touchstone for two vastly different individuals - transcending decades, continents, and the bittersweet workings of fate.

Hope Anderson is at a crossroads. At 36, she's been dating her boyfriend, an orthopedic surgeon, for six years. With no wedding plans in sight, and her father recently diagnosed with ALS, she decides to use a week at her family's cottage in Sunset Beach, North Carolina, to ready the house for sale and mull over some difficult decisions about her future.

Tru Walls has never visited North Carolina but is summoned to Sunset Beach by a letter from a man claiming to be his father. A safari guide, born and raised in Zimbabwe, Tru hopes to unravel some of the mysteries surrounding his mother's early life and recapture memories lost with her death. When the two strangers cross paths, their connection is as electric as it is unfathomable...but in the immersive days that follow, their feelings for each other will give way to choices that pit family duty against personal happiness in devastating ways.

Illuminating life's heartbreaking regrets and enduring hope, Every Breath explores the many facets of love that lay claim to our deepest loyalties - and asks the question, How long can a dream survive?

Didn’t enjoy the voices

The story was pretty good, typical Nicholas Sparks which is what I wanted, but I really had a difficult time with the different voices the narrators would try to use. Reminds me of when you try to read that way to your kids, impersonating characters. I found the accent and impersonation of Hope quite unbearable. I think the story should be read in the narrator’s normal voice. If you want a Carolina accent for Hope, then get a narrator from Carolina.

Every Breath review

Very dreamy and compelling story of a soulmate kind of love. As with most love stories, it has the potential to make you critical of or dissatisfied with your own relationship, so be careful there 😊
Enjoyed Tru’s voice.

I love a good Sparks

Happy I started my year off with one of my favorite authors. Wasn't one of my favorites, or would make my top 10 Sparks books, but it was a good read. I enjoyed learning from the characters, and seeing life from their pov. This book made my yearning to travel to North Carolina even stronger!

Not a usual Sparks novel

Truly did not expect to be disappointed with this book after listening to the prologue. But the story left me feeling superficial and way to over the top. It isn’t until the last 2 chapters that you really get any emotional trauma.

If you find yourself bored and waiting for a twist. It comes but is again unrealistic and also not enough of a twist to make it a page turner.

An amazing love story

Loved it! So many twists and turns and a bitter sweet end. It definitely causes one to reflect on how choices can impact our lives.

it was a good summer listen

Predictable, and vanilla but kind and sweet. A nice headphone listen while gardening. Unlike the Notebook (my favourite) it's forgettable. And it shouldn't be

Every Breath

A love story where life gets in the way. A life time that can’t stop fate. With every breath I waited patiently for life’s road to pave forward. Another heartfelt believable story by Nicholas Sparks. A must read!
