... Amanda and Dawson are summoned back to Oriental for the funeral of Tuck Hostetler, the mentor who once gave shelter to their high school romance. Neither has lived the life they imagined...and neither can forget the passionate first love that forever changed their lives. As Amanda and Dawson carry out the instructions Tuck left behind for them, they realize that everything they thought they knew --- about Tuck, about themselves, and about the dreams they held dear --- was not as it seemed. Forced to confront painful memories, the two former lovers will discover undeniable truths about the choices they have made. And in the course of a single, searing weekend, they will ask of the living, and the dead: Can love truly rewrite the past? (back cover)
I thoroughly enjoyed the audio book The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks. True to Sparks' usual style of fiction, the story included intense love, lost love, continuing love, and difficult life-changing decisions made by the main characters and their loved ones. Unlike his books that I've read in the past, this one included a few new twists that gave, for me, a very satisfying ending. I highly recommend The Best of Me.
