A bend in the road was book was filled with suspenseful turns and dramatic stops, I could not find myself to put the book down. The story follows two lovers, Miles Ryan and Sarah Andrews. Miles, a recent widow raising his Jonah, and Sarah is Jonah’s elementary school teacher who just got out of a divorce. After one small parent teacher meeting between the two, the connection was made. However, there’ s something that is pulling them apart- to find out a secret that will determine the future of their relationship. This book was romantically written, and I adored the way it made me feel as if I knew the characters myself, as if they jumped out of the page. The title ‘A bend in the road’ refers to the accident that Miles’s wife, in which she got killed, but it is also metaphor between the love story of the two central characthers in the novel as well. I think this novel is good for teenage girls like me, who are in need of a juicy romantic story. Just like most Nicholas Spark novels, a bend in the road is written with vivid descriptions and heartfelt emotion. This novel could also be a good read for males as well because the story is told in the male perspective, and Miles is no doubt a character that some males would connect to. What I really enjoyed the most about this story was that it was not one dimensional, there were many layers in the story that helped me connect to what the characters were going through. Be sure to hit the bookstores to check this novel out!

Sparks does it again. As the story moves along, the pace quickens until near the end I couldn't read fast enough. Great story, great ending

I love sparks but I feel like this book is going to be predicable and I havent even read it yet

Agree with seaspirit below that the main character, Miles, was portrayed as unstable, unpredictable, and obsessed with his wife's death. I grew to dislike him because of they way he often forgot he had a son to take care of, his persistent belief that he knew his wife's killer (when he didn't), his short fuse and sometimes violent reactions, and the way he turned on his lover suddenly. He didn't get my sympathy. As such, the ending is kind of unbelievable (as in not logical).

Real touching ending. Makes me wonder - as a sister - if I could ever do the same thing Sarah did... Sparks has done it again.

This book shows how a father whose wife died, finds love with his child's teacher! This book is really good, and it shows how to move on in life.

Another great book form nicholas sparks...
He is a great writer... after 6 of his books I'm still on a mission to read them all... It's getting a little bvious that his books are kind of alike

I have to agree on the fact that he has a great way of writing... adding the drivers chapters .... and the hole thrill trying to figure oute who did it...
It was good.... not his best.. but really good :)

WOW--talk about forgiveness...I really enjoyed this book and the mystery of "who done-it" kept me engaged.

A great story, I couldn't believe the end it was really suprising. Nicholas Sparks is an awesome writer, and all his books have a suprising end. In some of them the endings are really sad, but in other ones they are really suprising just like this one. Definitely an awesome book, I higly recommend it, because once you start reading it you're not gonna want to stop until you are done with it. Especially when you get to the part of discovering the secret.

I like romance, but I wasn't overly impressed with the character traits of the main character. He's still too volatile and not stable enough for a serious relationship. The driver's thoughts added to the story and were a nice tie in at the end.
