Something that is very dear to my heart is reading. I have always loved cuddling up with a good book and just letting the words take me. The most recent book I have read is The Rescue, by Nicholas Sparks. Now if you know Nicholas Sparks you know that he is the author of sappy love stories like The Notebook and A Walk to Remember. I am not one for a love dovey books, but this was a real page turner.
The book was given to me by one of my best friends and hopeless romantics Jessica. I think a book means more when you can share it with a good girlfriend. So I will share this book with you in hopes that you might pick it up and start reading it.
Jessica told me, "Lauren, you have to read this you will love it." And well, Jessica was right.
The book's main characters are both complex and the supporting characters are realistic.
This is probably what I enjoyed most about the book you really get to know the characters and when reading you feel like you know them so well that can finish their sentences.
The book starts out with a storm that hits a small Southern town. Denis Holton a young single mother crashes her car because of the terrible weather. When she awakes from the crash she realizes her son is gone, disappeared from sight. Then out of no where to her "rescue" is Taylor McAden, a fireman. Taylor finds her son and then chapters and chapters pass and so grows the love between Denis, her son and Taylor.
I don't want to tell you anymore because I don't want to spoil it for you if you decide to read it.
I realize after writing this blog that maybe I am a hopeless romantic after all?
If you would like to share a good book with me I would love that! In the comment section of the blog type in a book that you have read lately that you couldn't put down....Who knows this blog could spawn Lauren's Book Club, just like Oprah.
