Overview

This special B&N Exclusive Edition contains a personal essay from Nicholas Sparks to readers on the lost art of letter writing and is only available at Barnes & Noble.

In the romantic tradition of The Notebook and Nights in Rodanthe, #1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks returns with a story about a chance encounter that becomes a touchstone for two vastly different individuals — transcending decades, continents, and the bittersweet workings of fate.


Hope Anderson is at a crossroads. At thirty-six, she's been dating her boyfriend, an orthopedic surgeon, for six years. With no wedding plans in sight, and her father recently diagnosed with ALS, she decides to use a week at her family's cottage in Sunset Beach, North Carolina, to ready the house for sale and mull over some difficult decisions about her future.

Tru Walls has never visited North Carolina but is summoned to Sunset Beach by a letter from a man claiming to be his father. A safari guide, born and raised in Zimbabwe, Tru hopes to unravel some of the mysteries surrounding his mother's early life and recapture memories lost with her death. When the two strangers cross paths, their connection is as electric as it is unfathomable . . . but in the immersive days that follow, their feelings for each other will give way to choices that pit family duty against personal happiness in devastating ways.

Illuminating life's heartbreaking regrets and enduring hope, EVERY BREATH explores the many facets of love that lay claim to our deepest loyalties — and asks the question, How long can a dream survive?

I was blown away by this book. I don't know how Sparks comes up with these fantastic stories. Although I think all are great, I have several favorites. I can now say this book is my # 2 best. The 1st is 3 weeks with my brother which is nonfiction. The way he wrote this book I believed it. Read this fantastic book and see what you think..

Eeep - finally another Nicholas Sparks book! I just love his stories. A WALK TO REMEMBER was the book that started my reading addiction back in 2002 or somewhere around that time. Every Breath is really heartbreaking and sad and moving and hopeless but also full of hope and love and family and loss and ... so much. Full of all those beautiful and heartbreaking things a Nicholas Sparks book needs.☺ We start with 42 year old Zimbabwe tour guide Tru. He's the grandson of one of the countries' richest men. But he left home to become a guide for tourists because he didn't much like his grandfather and step-dad. Tru has a 10 year old son with his ex-wife and an estranged step-dad and 2 half brothers who live in his grandfather's mansion. When he receives a letter from America, he decides to follow the invitation. It's a letter from his biological father. A man he never met. And he's dying. Off to North Carolina he goes. He wants to know about how his late mom met his father. And on a beach his first morning in America he meets Hope. She's staying in her family's already sold beach home for a friend's wedding that weekend. Without her boyfriend of seven years. He has to work. The whole relationship is a bit strained. And then she meets this interesting and handsome guy with all his amazing stories about african wildlife and she's immediately attracted. She's never been like this with anyone. And Tru is just as drawn to Hope. But both have so many family obligations and exes or current relationships and he lives in Africa and she lives here ... it won't be easy. But the reader has an amazing (aka heartbreaking aka crying rivers of tears) time reading about their journey to a hopefully happy end. But since this is a Sparks book ... we're not yet sure if there will be happy end. What we do know - or what I realized at the 13% mark when something was mentioned - is that it will definitely be a very sad and heartbreaking book ... but also a book so full of love and hope. I don't know what more to say. It's a Nicholas Sparks book, so you know what could happen, what might happen. BUT that doesn't mean you shouldn't read it. I loved and hated every single word. Such a beautiful love story. My heart broke a million times for ... Nope - I'm not telling you more about the story. I loved it. The End.☺

I have always loved Nicholas Sparks' books. I have read them all and they have each made me cry, feel different emotions, and wish the books would never end. This book made my heart hurt and burst! The power of knowing that this love story is true and really out there and the pool of love can come together through anything. At the end knowing Hope's secret devastated me but in the same breath made me feel that Tru is her real love. I am in awe as to how Sparks could write their story with his own words and capture how they had to have been feeling so Well! This is a must read, I have told friends and my sister to read it with a glass of wine and tissues! Loved this book so very much! Take 20% off coupons from 100promo.com

As a widow, I felt and knew this love and it gives me hope that I can carry it with me until we meet again. Well written and had good visuals with every chapter

This was an interesting concept but it fizzled quickly. The descriptions go on and on, with every detail described did this not feel like a Sparks novel

Very good and believable, only to short. Thank you again for a wonderful book. Thanks Thanks

I have read every book Nicolas Sparks has written to date. And although I consider this to be one of his shortest novels, it still, exceeded my expectations. “Every Breathe” is a wonderful novel, that tells the tale of an impossible love, all while taking you on a journey through the trials and tribulations of life! Every time I picked up this book, I didn’t want to put it down! Definitely a worthy read!

No words can even describe this book other than my header. I don’t like to repeat the story or even describe it in my reviews. I would rather just state my enjoyment. However, I can say this is a beautifully written book such as only Nichols Sparks can accomplish and typical of his style. It touched me tremendously and reminded me of our choices and the effect they have on our lives. I don’t think the choices made in the book were anything different than what they should have been, but seeing what the consequences were makes you think about your own decisions and what might have been.
