There are a few things Jeremy Marsh was sure he’d never do: he’d never leave New York City; never give his heart away after barely surviving one failed marriage; and never become a parent. Now Jeremy is living in the tiny town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, engaged to Lexie Darnell, the love of his life, and anticipating the start of their family. But just as his life seems to be settling into a blissful pattern, a mysterious and disturbing e-mail sets off a chain of events that will change the course of this young couple’s relationship. How well do we really know the ones we love? How do we handle the inevitable doubts, fears concerning parenthood, and stumbling blocks that are sometimes placed in our way? Continuing the story of the young couple introduced in Sparks’s bestselling True Believer, this novel captures all the heartbreak, tension, romance and surprises of those who are newly wed. An astonishing tale about the love between a man and a woman and between a parent and a child, At First Sight is about endings that bring new beginnings . . . tragedies that lead to unexpected joy . . . and, most of all, the magic of everlasting love.

-- My Thoughts --

     A lovely, romantic author, Nicholas Sparks. He speaks right to your heart, I love his novels. After reading A Walk To Remember and A Bend In The Road, this book did not stray from the greatness of both, it was equally touching and emotionally productive.
     Jeremy falls in love with Lexie when he visits her old town, looking for some proves on the "ghostly" lights that appear at the cemetery at night. Falling more and more in love each day, Jeremy decides to move from New York to Boone Crick, Lexie's home. But fate has planned a completely different life for them, Jeremy and Lexie have to fight each day for the love they share. And the outcomes are not always pleasant.
     The story develops as Jeremy and Lexie try to overcome the ups and downs in their marriage, and to get ready for the little baby girl to be born. As the due day gets closer, Jeremy has to ask himself, is love at first sight truly possible?  Will his life turn out like how he planned? Find out when you read the heart-wrenching, emotionally-compelling novel, At First Sight...
     I adored this book! The characters are totally three-dimensional, and they develop throughout the book, you get to notice how Jeremy finds his true-self and his true passion. The story-line is utterly captivating. There is only one thing that always breaks my heart in Nicholas Sparks' books, the ending... When I read the end, it's mostly always the same thought that crosses my mind: "Why, Oh, Why??"
     You know what? Just go grab one of Nicholas Sparks' books. Whichever you choose, you will never ever be disappointed. Each of his books are sewn with a great delicateness and passion, each will grip you heart and never let it go. Nicholas Sparks is truly a genius storyteller...
