"I wait. Her words will hurt me. They will tear a piece from my heart and leave a scar. Who are you?"

She is his wife, Allie. He is her husband of 49 years. For the past four years he has begun each day by shuffling down the tiled halls, past the closed doors of other residents, to her room. He sits and watches her looking out the window. Then Noah reads from their notebook a story of love that is eternally optimistic.

Noah reads poetry. Together they watch a sunrise. They share a summer that ends when Allie moves away.

The Notebook spins a web around this question: will Allie return to Noah and will she break her engagement to a successful lawyer to be with the man who truly loves her? (Nuff said) Read this book. Be prepared to shed a tear or three. Be prepared for visions of two lovers holding hands with tenderness. Be prepared to feel sad for them both. That's all that needs to be said.
