The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
The Notebook introduces us to the incredible love with the main rule of “persevering”. Noah Calhoun, a rural southerner has just returned from the Second World War. It would be jubilation to fill his heart, but Noah is filled with memories of the would be the love of his life.
As he restores the plantation home to its former glory, Noah is frequently haunted by the images and memories of the beautiful girl he fell in love with during the summer before he departed for war.
Unwilling to move on, he chooses to live with memories until when the girl shows up one day, but with a different story this time.
