My pick this week
The Lucky One
Author: Nicholas Sparks
First Published: 2008
In his 14th book, bestselling author Nicholas Sparks tells the unforgettable story of a man whose brushes with death lead him to the love of his life.
After U.S. Marine Logan Thibault finds a photograph of a smiling young woman buried in the dirt during his tour of duty in Iraq, he experiences a sudden streak of luck -- winning poker games and even surviving deadly combat. Only his best friend, Victor, seems to have an explanation for his good fortune: the photograph -- his lucky charm.
Back home in Colorado, Thibault can't seem to get the woman in the photograph out of his mind and he sets out on a journey across the country to find her. But Thibault is caught off guard by the strong attraction he feels for the woman he encounters in North Carolina - Elizabeth, a divorced mother -- and he keeps the story of the photo, and his luck, a secret. As he and Elizabeth embark upon a passionate love affair, his secret soon threatens to tear them apart -- destroying not only their love, but also their lives.
Filled with tender romance and terrific suspense, THE LUCKY ONE is an unforgettable story about the surprising paths our lives often take and the power of fate to guide us to true and everlasting love.
After reading some of the Sparks' books, I bought all of his books a few months ago. So, many of them are still dusty.. :) I have to read them though..sometime. Believe me, when I say I have no intention of making these books dusty..I just have other books that I "have to" read.
Many of you would have known this feeling. You would have bought a book, because you want to read. And then the other books come, and you just don't find time to read the old ones. Share with me..bring back those memories, so that we will remember and read it soon. :)
