This book is a great book and it touches ones heart in ways you couldn't imagine. I seriously love this book because I love romantic stories and it's just so cute. The movie is good but the book is better. Well "The Notebook" is about a journey of two young lovers Noah Calhoun and Allie Nelson who made a passionate summer romance and they were separated because Allie moved to the city. After fourteen years of separation due to World War 2 and class differences. Allie got engaged to a wealthy lawyer, Lon.

One day Allie was looking through the newspaper and she spots Noah standing next to the plantation he restored. All of a sudden all these feelings started coming back from when she last saw him. So she decides to go back to New Burn to visit Noah. When she arrives in New Burn she checks in at a hotel and drives straight to the plantation and as she approached the house she saw Noah.

Noah saw the car approach so he walked towards the car and once she steps out of the car he was shocked to see the ghost that had come to dominate his life. They spent a couple of days together making up for lost time and a hundred miles away from New Burn Allie's fianc'e, Lon, was getting worried because every time he called her she was never there so he decided to go to New Burn. That day Noah had a surprise for Allie he took her on a kayak ride down the creek to this special place he found that morning. When he was about to arrive he told her to close her eyes and then he paddled a little more then he told her to open her eyes. When she opened her eyes, she noticed that their boat was surrounded by Tundra Swans and Canada Geese.

She was amazed of how beautiful it was but it was cut short because it began to rain. So Noah paddled as fast as he can to the plantation and he couldn't help but realize how beautiful Allie looked wet in the rain. When they arrived at the plantation they ran into the house. Noah ran upstairs and gave Allie dry clothes. Then she was trapped in the house because she thought it was unsafe to drive in the rain. That night in the living room next to the fire Allie and Noah made love like they once did fourteen summers ago.

Making up for their years apart, and slept in each others arms that night. The next day Allie's mother warned her that Lon was here looking for her so Allie left Noah, leaving him as if she where to never see him again and went to face Lon. She told Lon everything and told him that her heart truly lied with Noah. Allie went back to Noah and later on they got married and had a whole bunch of kids and lived there whole lives together.

But when they reached their senior years Allie was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and it got worse through out the years so they moved to a home. Later on Allie forgot her life, forgot who she was, even forgot who Noah was. Everyday Noah would read to her and she would listen and sometimes she would remember as if she didn't have the disease. One day as they where having a wonderful day also a dinner for two, Allie's memory came back and Allie started saying she was sorry for the disease she had and that she loved him. That night Noah was so happy that he didn't want the night to end but when night fell Allies mind drifted off again.

She was horrified from the sight of Noah and told him to leave her alone and go away. Noah was crushed and had a stroke that night in his room. The day of their forty-ninth anniversary Noah struggled to get to Allies room and once he did he just watched her sleep and she woke up, he knew she was going to start screaming and crying. So he leaned in and kissed her.

Suddenly, a miracle happened for he felt her mouth open and discovered a forgotten paradise, unchanged all this time. Suddenly she murmurs softly that she'd missed him and slowly she began to unbutton his shirt one by one.
