Since time immemorial, messages have been sent in bottles and it is interesting to note that thrown to the waves they can end up anywhere with no certainty of reaching their designated recipient. But this bottle was found just three weeks after being thrown to the waves.
Theresa Osborne was walking by the beach when she found a bottle with a message. The message was to Catherine from Garrett but it shook Theresa with its intensity leaving her with emotions she could not define. Determined to find this mysterious Garrett, Theresa's search takes her to a coastal town where Garrett lives. What happens next will shake you and leave you with myriad of emotions.
“True love is rare, and it's the only thing that gives life real meaning.”
Nicholas Sparks is without doubt the master of weaving human emotions to make his stories truly remarkable. I had cried my eyes out reading Nights In Rodantheand thought that was sure to be his best work but wait till you read this one and Message In A Bottleis even better!!
His style grabbed me from the beginning and I was left eagerly turning pages. The ease with which he creates a mental picture of the story settings like a beach with waves crashing on the rocks, a lone bottle with a mysterious message riding on the waves, the violent sea with death waves hell bent on destroying everything in their path etc. is remarkable and awe inspiring.
I really like this book which left me hurriedly wiping tears from my eyes to clear my blurred vision so that I could read ahead!! :)
The last letter Garrett writes to Theresa which comes to her in a bottle left me feeling like my heart had been ripped out and stomped on. My heart sank and I felt each and every emotion felt by Theresa and even Garrett.
A masterpiece and a story not to be missed, I give Message In A Bottlea deserving 5 on 5 and highly recommend it. If you have ever been in love or are in love then you need to read this book of bonds that were made for ever and about love that would remain strong even against destiny.
“There are winds of destiny that blow when we least expect them. Sometimes they gust with the fury of a hurricane, sometimes they barely fan one’s cheek. But the winds cannot be denied, bringing as they often do a future that is impossible to ignore.”
