“Love is like the wind, you can't see it but you can feel it.”Description from Goodreads:
Every April, when the wind blows from the sea and mingles with the scent of lilacs, Landon Carter remembers his last year at Beaufort High. It was 1958, and Landon had already dated a girl or two. He even swore that he had once been in love. Certainly the last person in town he thought he'd fall for was Jamie Sullivan, the daughter of the town's Baptist minister. A quiet girl who always carried a Bible with her schoolbooks, Jamie seemed content living in a world apart from the other teens. She took care of her widowed father, rescued hurt animals, and helped out at the local orphanage. No boy had ever asked her out. Landon would never have dreamed of it. Then a twist of fate made Jamie his partner for the homecoming dance, and Landon Carter's life would never be the same. Being with Jamie would show him the depths of the human heart and lead him to a decision so stunning it would send him irrevocably on the road to manhood...
I will start off by saying this; this is definitely one of my favorite books I have EVER read. It is a great story! A Walk to Remember is about Jamie Sullivan and Landon Carter. They are both seniors in high school, and a twist of fate makes them partners for the homecoming dance. Their relationship slowly progresses, but it does. Now take my advice, you will start out smiling and happy, but towards the end it gets sad and you may cry.
This book was great. I recommend it to anyone who wants a very simple, but good love story. It held my attention the whole time, and before I knew it, I had finished the book. Like I said, this is probably one of my favorite books ever! It is a very touching story, and anyone who likes love stories should definitely read this book sometime!
