I have an eight year old boy who is autistic. He was diagnosed four
years ago. I went thru lots of pain and of course joy teaching him the
basic things like understanding language that other children of his age
don't seems to have any problem with. I like this particularly scene
where Denise was watching Kyle sleep and she wished that in Kyle's dream
he was happy playing with other kids who understood him. That scene
brought tears to my eyes. I think at that moment Sparks really touched
my heart. I didn't know what drew me to read his book but now I know.
I really really enjoyed this book (being my first book). My next book
will be A Walk To Remember.

As with all of Sparks' novels, this one provides a large conflict and barrier the hero and heroine must pass through, though the outcome is definitely happy in this novel. I enjoyed every moment of this book. Adding in a son with a speech impairment made it even greater a triumph as the book ended. Sparks usually lacks happy endings, but does not fail in this story. And though it left me teary eyed, like all the rest, it was a truly great read.
