About the Author
James B. Patterson (born March 22, 1947) is an award-winning American author. Formerly an advertising executive for J. W. Thompson in the early 1990s, Patterson came up with the slogan "Toys R Us Kid". Shortly after his success with Along Came A Spider he retired from the firm and devoted his time to writing. The novels featuring his character, Alex Cross, a black forensic psychologist formerly of the Washington, D.C. Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation, now working as a private psychologist and government consultant, are the most popular books among Patterson readers. James Patterson has been criticized by Stephen King, who called Patterson's books "dopey thrillers". Patterson shrugged off the comments, stating that he wants to be the "thrillingest thriller writer of all time". James Patterson has also been put as one of Forbes magazine's top 100 celebrities.

This is a story that is written in the form of a diary from a woman named Suzanne to her son Nicholas. Matt gives this diary to Katie a woman that he has fallen in love with but is unable to commit to. He hopes that this diary will help explain the way he is and why he had to leave her. In this diary Suzanne tells of how she met Nicholas' dad Matt and how their love grew over time and the various obstacles that stood in their way. Eventually though Suzanne's health condition makes itself known and you realize that this happy ever after love is really living on borrowed time. While reading this diary Katie soon begins to understand the man that she loves and through the diary finds a connection not only with Suzanne but with little Nicholas as well. She continues reading because she has to find out what happened to this family and how Matt came to be in her life and if it's possible for Matt and Katie to ever find a happy ending as well.
Again this story was great in the fact that I was completely drawn into the storyline right from the beginning. Yes, I realize that this novel may not be for everyone. In fact stay clear if you are bothered by sentimentality, emotional ups and downs, love stories, and did not care for the movies Steel Magnolia's or Terms of Endearment. If the formally mentioned warning does not include you, then by all means pick this book up. You're in for a tremendously emotional read by a very talented author.
This is a short novel as well, so if you've got an hour and a half to kill before or on a flight or want something that you'll be able to start and finish while lying on a beach, then this novel is ideal. Be warned though once you start, you'll be hooked and won't be able to put this masterpiece down. I certainly don't read much of this genre, well any really, and prefer the serial killer, Alex Cross type novels to this sort of thing but even though the topic isn't something I would usually pick up I will admit this book is written just as well if not better than all the ones in my preferred genre.
This obviously isn't an Alex Cross novel, so if you're going to pick up a book then bag it because it isn't one then why waste everyone's time. Like I said this isn't the type of book I am normally interested in but I couldn't put it down. If you give it a try then you won't either.
