Jeremy Marsh is a New York writer who went to Boone Creek, North Carolina on assignment. He expected to write a magazine article. Meeting Lexie Darnell and falling in love was a complete surprise. Readers were introduced to their story in True Believer.
Nicholas Sparks continues the Jeremy/Lexie saga in At First Sight. During their brief time together, a child was conceived. Jeremy packs up and moves to Boone Creek to join his soon-to-be bride. The couple faces the usual adjustments, only at a quicker pace due to the pending wedding and baby. Jeremy has trouble adjusting to the slow-paced fishbowl that is small-town life.
Lexie prefers to keep secrets, and that causes tension as well. Several friends and their intentions complicate the mix and cast doubt on the future of Jeremy and Lexie. It’s easy to follow the saga, but readers may want to check out True Believer before reading this tale to get a complete picture of all involved.
The majority of At First Sight takes place in Sparks’ familiar coastal Carolina setting. Faith and tenderness amid a picturesque backdrop, trademarks of the author’s past bestsellers, are present in this novel as well. Expect a few tears in this tale of true love At First Sight.
