I finished reading this book a few weeks ago and did not want it to end. I tend to be iffy about Nicholas Sparks books because they are often on the "do not cross" line between romantic and cheesy.
The Rescue, however, was a far from cheesy as it gets. The story felt so real and believeable I did not want to put the book down. If you like Nicholas Sparks, or are on the fence about him I think you should give this book a try. I hadn't found a book of his I really liked enough to recommend since I read The Notebook a few years ago. Yes, the book is somewhat formuliac- but aren't most romances? Thats the reason many people read them.
But this book is far from dull and I couldn't guess what was going to happen next in the plot line. Its the story of a woman whose son has speech problems and their interactions with the volunteer fireman who rescued him.
Two great love stories in one.
Want a copy? Have you read it? What did you think? What is your favorite Nicholas Sparks book?
