At first I was confused about the beginning and how it was going to develop. But after a few chapters it started to come together. The format of the book is different from other Nicolas Sparks books but brings it all together nicely. It’s your typical Nicolas Sparks book in some ways yet totally different in other ways. I enjoyed the strong characters, scenery background and plot lines of the characters. Modern day cowboys and bull riders are often overlooked in today’s society because of the animal rights and controversy of it all but this story is rich and interesting. It is one of my favorite reads of 2014.
