With The Lucky One I decided to give Nicholas Sparks another chance. Mainly because of the movie coming out. I read A Walk to Remember and also show the movie, I loved both. When I read Dear John that’s what turned me off of Nicholas Sparks books. However I decided to get him another chance with The Lucky One, and I am glad I did.
Logan Thibault is a former Marine who after a picture in the Iraq desert walks from Colorado to North Carolina in order to find the woman in the photograph that kept him alive. Logan’s character is so real, I mean what’s not to love about a Marine who’s willing to work across the country to say thank you.
Beth (Elizabeth) Clayton is a single mom trying to raise a son Ben who is your typical ten years old. While helping her grandma (Nana) run a dog kennel. Who cannot get rid of her ex. Keith one of the town’s deputy sheriff’s.
For a secular novel the book was fairly clean. I do not remember any cuss words in the novel, there were a few scenes where things were implied, but didn’t really give too many details are descriptions. I would say that this is a book for adults.
