Aos 91 anos, com problemas de saúde e sozinho no mundo, Ira Levinson sofre um terrível acidente de carro. Enquanto luta para se manter consciente, a imagem de Ruth, sua amada esposa que morreu há nove anos, surge diante dele.

Perto dali, Sophia Danko, uma jovem estudante de história da arte, acompanha a melhor amiga até um rodeio. Lá é assediada pelo ex-namorado e acaba sendo salva por Luke Collins, o caubói que acabou de vencer a competição.… (mais)

Romance fantástico, ao nível do que Nicholas Sparks nos habituou.

I really tried to enjoy this a little, since the movie wasn't so bad (wasn't good either, imo, but it wasn't that bad...but I'm a Rachel McAdams fan so yeah...) but no, Nicholas Sparks clearly isn't for me… (mais)
