A Bend in the Road

A Bend in the Road by Nicholas Sparks

Miles is a small town cop whose wife went out for a run and never returned. She was killed by a hit-and-run driver. Miles has had difficulty coping but has to for his 7 year old son, Jonas.

Sarah was involved in a ugly divorce and moved to New Bern for a new start. She teaches the second grade. She notices that Jonas has not been getting the help he needs and contacts Miles to come in for a parent-teacher interview.

Starry love, love, severe angst, angst, a little twist and back to love, love.

Nicolas Sparks' stories are pretty much the same; love, angst and but I can't live without you plots. These are not stories that are meaty but rather mindless reads. Was this a good story? Yes, as long as you aren't expecting anything else. Could I have spent my life more productively? Of course, but sometimes fluff is needed to clear your mind.

First Line: "Where does a story truly begin?"
