A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks
There was a time when the world was sweeter, when the women in Beaufort, North Carolina, wore dresses, and the men donned hats. Every April, when the wind smells of both the sea and lilacs, Landon Carter remembers 1958, his last year at Beaufort High. Landon had dated a girl or two, and even once sworn that he'd been in love. Certainly the last person he thought he'd fall for was Jamie, the shy, almost ethereal daughter of the town's Baptist minister Jamie, who was destined to show him the depths of the human heart-and the joy and pain of living.
