Dear John (Audiobook) - Nicholas Sparks

An army soldier has to chose between giving himself completely to the love of his life or risking that love to serve his country during one of its greatest times in need - 9/11.

This is a bittersweet story about true love and sacrifice in more ways than one. The worst struggles that John goes through are not only during his time of active duty. I can't imagine having a relationship with someone who wasn't there for 98% of the time during it.

I love that the main characters wrote letters, and the moon gazing tradition was a beautiful sentiment that brought me to tears. This is definitely a sadder love story, and I only recommend it to those who know life isn't all about perfect happy endings.
