Adrienne Willis is 45 and has been divorced for three years, abandoned by her husband for a younger woman. The trials of raising her teenage children and caring for her sick father have worn her down, but at the request of a friend and in hopes of respite, she's gone to the coastal village of Rodanthe in North Carolina to tend the local inn for the weekend. With a major storm brewing, the time away doesn't look promising...until a guest named Paul Flanner arrives. At 54, Paul is a successful surgeon, but in the previous six months his life has unraveled into something he doesn't recognize. Estranged from his son and recently divorced, he's sold his practice and his home and has journeyed to this isolated town in hopes of closing a painful chapter in his past. Adrienne and Paul come together as the storm brews over Rodanthe, but what begins between them over the weekend will resonate throughout the rest of their lives, intertwining past and future, love and loss.

Saying good-bye to you today is the hardest thing I’ll ever have to do, and when I get back, I can honestly swear that I’ll never do it again. I love you now for what we’ve already shared and I love now in anticipation for all that’s to come. You are the best thing that ever happened to me. I miss you already, but I’m sure in my heart that you’ll be with me always. In the past few days I spent with you, you became my dream. ~ Nights in Rodanthe

Before we met, I was as lost as a person could be and yet you saw something in me that somehow gave me direction again. ~ Nights in Rodanthe

I've been thinking about you constantly since I left, wondering why the journey I'm on seemed to have led through you. I know my journey's not over yet, and that life is a winding path, but I can only hope it somehow circles back to the place I belong. That's how I think of it now. I belong with you. ~ Nights in Rodanthe

What I’m trying to say is that you are there, in everything I am … in everything I’ve ever done … and looking back, I know that I should have told you how much you’ve always meant to me. ~ The Weddin

Sometimes when you’re dreaming, I’ll move closer to you in the hope that somehow this will allow me to enter your dreams. ~ The Wedding

My first thoughts after waking are – and always have been – of you. ~ The Wedding

SAPPHIREBEAR15 Jun 12, 2012

But it wasn’t just about my feelings. The more I got to know you, the more I was certain that you’d do whatever it took to provide for your family. That was important to me. You have to understand that back then, a lot of people our age wanted to change the world. Even though it’s a noble idea, I knew I wanted something more traditional. I wanted a family like my parents had and I wanted to concentrate on my little corner of the world. I wanted someone who wanted to marry a wife and a mother, and someone who would respect my choice. ~ The Wedding

SAPPHIREBEAR15 Jun 12, 2012

You were honest and hardworking and kind. You were polite and patient and more mature than any guy I’d dated before. And when we were together, you listened in a way that made me feel like I was the only woman in the world. You made me feel complete and spending time with you just seemed right. ~ The Wedding

SAPPHIREBEAR15 Jun 12, 2012

What are we, after all, without our memories … without our dreams? ~ The Wedding

SAPPHIREBEAR15 Jun 12, 2012

The hurt began to fade and it was easier to just let go. At least I thought it was. But in every boy I met in the next few years, I found myself looking for you, and when the feelings got too strong I'd write you another letter. But I never sent them, in fear of what I might find. By then, you'd gone on with your life and I didn't want to think about you loving someone else. I wanted to remember us like we were that summer. I didn’t want to ever forget that. ~ The Notebook

It was a great book. Way. Better than the movie although I like the characters a lot. It was a stretch to fall. Love in a weekend but it could happen. It was sad at the end too. But the author wrote a great story.

This book was awful. I read another of Nichloas Sparks books (Safe Haven) about a year ago that was awesome, so thought I'd give this a try. It was predictable, boring, and sad. Come on Mr. Sparks, I know you can do better than this! I can't see how this book got decent reviews on here! Apparently there is a movie based on the book - you couldn't PAY me to watch it.

Read the book before watching the movie, book is so much better. i made the mistake of doing it the other way around and the it kind of ruined it for me because i knew what was going to happen.

Adrienne Willis, a woman with her life in chaos, retreats to the tiny coastal town of Rodanthe, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, to tend to a friend's inn for the weekend. Here she hopes to find the tranquility she so desperately needs to rethink the conflicts surrounding her -- a wayward husband who has asked to come home, and a teen-aged daughter who resents her every decision. Almost as soon as Adrienne gets to Rodanthe, a major storm is forecast and a guest named Dr. Paul Flanner arrive. The only guest at the inn, Flanner is not on a weekend escape but rather is there to face his own crisis of conscience. Now, with the storm closing in, the two turn to each other for comfort and, in one magical weekend, set in motion a life-changing romance that will resonate throughout the rest of their lives
