A Bend in the Road
-Nicholas Sparks


Miles Ryan's life seemed to end the day his wife was killed in a hit-and-run accident two years ago. Missy had been his first love, and Miles fervently believes she will be his last. As a deputy sheriff in the North Carolina town of New Bern, Miles Ryan not only grieves for Missy, but longs to bring the unknown driver to justice.

Then Miles meets Sarah Andrews. The second grade teacher of his son, Jonah, Sarah had left Baltimore after a difficult divorce to start over in the gentler surroundings of New Bern. Perhaps it is her own emotional wounds that make her sensitive to the hurt she first sees in Jonah's eyes, and then his father's. Tentatively, Sarah and Miles reach out to each other. Soon they are both laughing for the first time in years...and falling in love.

Neither will be able to guess how closely linked they are to a shocking secret-one that will force them to question everything they ever believed in...and make a heartbreaking choice that will change their lives forever.

Review this book



Overall I really liked this book. But I did get a little annoyed in some parts. For example it really began to get to me when he kept saying over and over to people things like "my wife is dead" "you killed my wife"....I mean come on we get it already. The main character could have been a little more civil, and we all knew at some point in the book that "his" wife had died. Oh and what really got to me was when he accused people of killing his wife when he had no evidence! A Character named “Otis” just made a comment, he didn’t admit it! And “Miles” was accusing him through out the book. It was interesting in some chapters how he had the real “killer” tell the reader what happened but he would never reveal himself until the ending which was a real twist. It definitely had you on the edge of your seat thinking “Come on already who is it???” Great read.
