“A beautiful love story. I think this is one of the most touching love stories ever written. I listened to the last hour while riding home in the car, and cried all of the way. It's beautifully written and beautifully performed. Get this audiobook...You won't be disappointed! It's a WONDERFUL book describing how enduring the love between two people can be.”

“The impossible love of young people generally make for an interesting story… But the impossible love of two elderly people, as presented in this book, is truly touching. It brings forward, to one's mind, the inevitable passing of time and the sadness of loss within reality. Kate Nelligan and Campbell Scott performed brilliantly. As simple as that.”

Or, go back in time to experience an endless love, in The Longest Ride, narrated by American actor, January LaVoy, and American actor, playwright and author, Ron McLarty.

“Simply beautiful. I love, love, loved this story. Another simply beautiful work from Sparks. The narration was a perfect match.”

“Narrators were fab. Loved the story. Ira & Ruth's life moved me to tears.”
