The Longest RideBook - 2015
A MAJOR MOTIONPICTURE FROM TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX. OPENS APRIL 10, 2015. STARRING SCOTT EASTWOOD, BRITT ROBERTSON, ALAN ALDA. WITH PHOTOS FROM THE MOVIE.
In the tradition of his beloved first novel, The Notebook, #1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks returns with the remarkable story of two couples whose lives intersect in profound and surprising ways.
Ira Levinson is in trouble. Ninety-one years old and stranded and injured after a car crash, he struggles to retain consciousness until a blurry image materializes beside him: his beloved wife Ruth, who passed away nine years ago. Urging him to hang on, she forces him to remain alert by recounting the stories of their lifetime together. A few miles away, at a local bull-riding event, a Wake Forest College senior's life is about to change. Recovering from a recent break-up, Sophia Danko meets a young cowboy named Luke, who bears little resemblance to the privileged frat boys she has encountered at school. Through Luke, Sophia is introduced to a world in which the stakes of survival and success, ruin and reward -- even life and death - loom large in everyday life. As she and Luke fall in love, Sophia finds herself imagining a future far removed from her plans -- a future that Luke has the power to rewrite . . . if the secret he's keeping doesn't destroy it first.
Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common, and who are separated by years and experience. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.

p. 321 " What indignity the future would bring next? And God, in his wisdom, provided the answer. How about an accident?! I sometimes think God has an odd sense of humor."
p. 26 Ruth talking to Ira: “you are attractive because your heart is still beautiful. Your eyes are still kind, and you are a good an honest man. This is enough to keep you beautiful forever.”
