Dear John

A nestie friend was kind enough to send me this book when she was paring down. It wasn't until I started reading it, that I realized I've read it before. But since I couldn't remember how it ended, I kept reading!

Here is the synopsis from Goodreads.com:

An angry rebel, John dropped out of school and enlisted in the Army, not knowing what else to do with his life--until he meets the girl of his dreams, Savannah. Their mutual attraction quickly grows into the kind of love that leaves Savannah waiting for John to finish his tour of duty, and John wanting to settle down with the woman who captured his heart. But 9/11 changes everything. John feels it is his duty to re-enlist. And sadly, the long separation finds Savannah falling in love with someone else. "Dear John," the letter read...and with those two words, a heart was broken and two lives were changed forever. Returning home, John must come to grips with the fact that Savannah, now married, is still his true love--and face the hardest decision of his life.


This book was a classic Nicholas Sparks: love story that doesn't work out just right, but still has a tearful bittersweet ending. Now I am looking forward to seeing the movie so I can compare!

His books leave me too depressed. I'm such a wimp. I can't read him anymore!
