A Bend In The Road


by Nicholas Sparks

Another brilliant work from my favorite author Nicholas Sparks, comes a story that rooted from tragedy.

Miles Ryan regretted the day that he disappointed his wife Missy, causing a heated confrontation that ended with the latter walking out. That night was the last time they saw each other as Missy was killed in a hit-and-run accident, leaving him and his son Jonah alone. Two years later and still no answer, Miles was desperate to seek justice for his wife's killer even so considering that he is the town's sheriff.

Everything was set aside when she meets Sarah Andrews, a charming young woman who moved in the little town of New Bern hoping to build a fresh start after coping up from a bad marriage that ended in a divorce. She then teaches at the local preschool where Jonah studies and this sparks up a connection with the boy's father. Miles and Sarah seem to hit it off, but little did they know that they are bound by a shocking secret that will compel them to re-evaluate everything that they had especially their love.

I had expected it to be all out on romance but this one's different from the Nicholas Sparks novels I've read. Mixed with both romance and suspense, it's also a delight for me to know it's a bit on the criminal investigation side. If you're fan of police investigations and mysteries, surely you'd want to consider reading this book.

Rating: 4 stars
