Part love story and part ghost story, this is an unforgettable New York Times bestseller about a science journalist and a North Carolina librarian who dare to believe in the impossible.

As a science journalist with a regular column in Scientific American, Jeremy Marsh specializes in debunking the supernatural-until he falls in love with the granddaughter of the town psychic.

When Jeremy receives a letter from Boone Creek, North Carolina, about ghostly lights appearing in a cemetery, he can't resist driving down to investigate. Here, in this tightly knit community, Lexie Darnell runs the town's library. Disappointed by past relationships, she is sure of one thing: her future is in Boone Creek, close to all the people she loves. From the moment Jeremy sets eyes on Lexie, he is intrigued. And Lexie, while hesitating to trust this outsider, finds herself thinking of him more than she cares to admit. Now, if they are to be together, Jeremy must do something he's never done before-take a giant leap of faith.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks comes a love story about taking chances and following your heart. True Believer will make you believe in the miracle of love.


  • Hated It

    By RockyMountVALady
    I have listened to MANY Nicholas Sparks’ books and this one is not good at all. I am in chapter 8 and can’t wait for it to end. The characters are boring and not credible (flat to say the least). While Nicholas Sparks has been one of my favorite, go to authors in the past, I will think twice before purchasing the next one. (After reading some of the other reviews, I wonder am I even listening to the same book). I will keeping listening to the entire book because I keep hoping it will get better. So disappointed!

    This was the first Nicholas Sparks book I ever read. It all started 11 years ago when I was in 10th grade. I remember my close friend and I were trying to rock,paper, scissor to determine who would get to read it first in the library (she won of course). I waited patiently for her to finish. When it was finally my turn, it was then I knew I had just fallen in love with Nicholas Sparks. It didn’t occur to me til later that Nicholas Sparks is also the author for A Walk To Remember and The Notebook, two of the best movies I ever watched. I’ve read other romantic novels but none that can move me like Nick’s. Forever grateful for his stories and forever grateful for this one.

    This book is the first in a two book series, the second book being, At First Sight. When I first started reading I was extremely unimpressed and I almost gave up on it. It took awhile to get invested, but once I was hooked I was hooked. I'm so glad that I read this book and the one following. I would definitely recommend both. They made me laugh out loud, and cry silent and uncontrollable tears. It made me really think about life and because of these two books I have a whole new appreciation of life. Do yourself a favor and read these books.

    By Loisduncanfanatic
    This is one of the best books made by Nicholas Sparks himself. The love between Lexie and Jeremy is just indescribable and uncontainable. This book really shows how far a person can go for love. Plus, it also shows how love can really change people, no matter their past or personality. Altogether, an amazing book that truly experiences the word "love". Keep up the good work Nicholas!
