"Every so often a love story so captures our hearts that it becomes
more than a story -- it becomes an experience to remember forever. "The Notebook"
is such a book. It is a celebration of how passion can be ageless and timeless,
a tale that moves us to laughter and tears and makes us believe in true love all over
At 31, Noah Calhoun, back in coastal North Carolina after World War II, is haunted by images of the girl he lost more than a decade earlier. At 29, socialite Allie Nelson is about to marry a wealthy lawyer, but she cannot stop thinking about the boy who long ago stole her heart. Thus begins the story of a love so enduring and deep it can turn tragedy into triumph, and may even have the power to create a miracle."
