Wow!!!!

I don't write a lot these days about the books that I've read or that I'm reading. I don't know why, I just don't anymore. But, a little over a year ago I purchased the book "a Bend in the Road" by Nicholas Sparks from Audible. For whatever reason, I never did get around to reading it. Last night though, I was reviewing the list of books that I'd purchased and came across it. Realizing that I hadn't yet read it, I decided to give it a go.

I'm not going to go into a lot of detail except to say that the book, in true Nicholas Sparks style is a love story. The main character, Miles, lost his wife in a hit and run accident, and he's raising his 7-year-old boy. He meets his son's teacher because she's concerned about the boy because he was barely able to read or write and she wants to give help if possible. The story is being told by a third-party narrator who switches back and forth between the telling of the story and his personal observations. The thing that I found absolutely just wow takes place at the very end of chapter ten when the narrator reveals a really shocking secret.
