This novel, A Walk to Remember, published in , was made into a movie which was a main selection for the Literary Guild and the Doubleday Book Club.
He walks out of his house and looks around and closes his eyes and things seem to reverse back in time. He saw his hair change its colour, the streets back to they were used to be and he ends up standing in outside the Baptist church and once he was again seventeen. At the end of the story he still reflects their wedding and has not removed his wedding ring and said that he now believed that miracles happen.
The fifty seven year old man who narrates his story through flashbacks. He goes through the years in his life, the years that changed his life. But as the story went on, he fell in love with Jamie and knew what his purpose in life. The seventeen year old girl Landon fell in love with. She is a kind hearted person, gentle, and always do good deeds to her peers and the people around her.
She always carries a bible with her and wears her brown jacket that gives her the impression of a loser in their school. She is a static character because she maintained her characteristics, and personality from the beginning until the end.
Besides changing her physical appearance, she is still the same Jamie whom Landon met the very first time.

He is the Baptist minister and the father of Jamie Sullivan. He raised her alone because his wife died giving birth to Jamie.
He is the father of Landon Carter and the local congressman of their town. He helped Jamie by providing the necessary equipment for Jamie to be out of the hospital and sent home. She encourages Landon to take Jamie to special places for him to her his feelings. She is very affectionate towards Jamie and is a good mother to Landon. She is a static character because she stayed the same throughout the story. She remained supportive to her son until they got married. She is their drama teacher.
She is large and overweighed and loves to say fabulous as her expression. She helped in the school play The Christmas Angel.
He is also the star of their football team and often teases Landon about his closeness with Jamie. He is also a dynamic character because at the end when he knew that Jamie has an illness, he apologises to her and must come to grips with the way he had always treated Jamie. The story has a first person point of view. In the first person point of view, the narrator does participate in the action of the story, and in this case it is Landon Carter.
He narrates the story based on his reflections on his past. He told the story by his own point of view.
The story has both internal and external conflict. And also because he knew his friends would bug him about it if he did take her.
One external conflict from the novel would be that Landon and his friends were always arguing because they would always tease him because he liked Jamie. On the other hand he is also the antagonist because he is also at war with himself and wants to find out who he is and his purpose in life.
Jamie helped him in finding answers to his own problems.
She made him realise that he could be the best person he could be. Mainly the theme of the story is whether you should follow your heart or your mind. Landon knew Jamie since they were young. When they became close, Landon thought that she is bad image for him and his friends tease him because of their togetherness.
Just then he realised that he should follow his heart and tell Jamie about his true feelings ignoring what his friends would say. But he then trusts his heart and believed that there can be miracles. His heart told him the things that he should do and his purpose for Jamie, and that is to love her and marry her. At the end, it became a symbol of her mother.
Jamie said that it is the same bible that her mother used while she was living. Now Jamie carried her to get the feeling that she is always with her mother. She is a complex character who defies stereotyping.
A Walk to Remember
Literature is a big word. You can come up with different meanings explaining its definition. But for me it depends on the person if he or she should consider a thing literature. She taught me everything. About life, hope and the long journey ahead. But our love is like the wind.
In every way, a walk to remember. I enjoyed the process of capturing the voice of a smart-alecky year-old kid. Likewise with Jamie Sullivan. There was something intrinsically sweet about her character that gradually seemed to take over the book. It was also the only novel that made me cry while writing. In many ways, Jamie Sullivan was my younger sister. Like Jamie, my sister was sweet. Like Jamie, my sister had tremendously strong faith.
Like Jamie, my sister loved church. Like Jamie, my sister was always cheerful. Like Jamie, all my sister wanted in life was to get married. Like Jamie, my sister met someone. Even when he knew she was sick, even when he knew that she might not make it, this man asked my sister to marry him. Established in as a trade and customs port, Beaufort is the third oldest town in the state and is steeped in colonial charm. Nowadays, Beaufort is known as a summer retreat, where visitors and resident alike can enjoy the shopping and dining on the waterfront district, or take ferries to nearby Cape Lookout, Shackleford Banks, or Carrot Island, where wild horses roam free.
The daughter of a minister Mandy Moore meets the only son Shane West and the story takes us through hard times, love and bitter sweet passion. This great love story shows us that it all comes down to who is by your side and who is willing to stand up for love even when it seems impossible. As I mentioned in the notes, this is the most frequently asked question I receive.
There are a number of things that I have to explain before I get into the answer so you can understand my reasoning. Part of it goes back to Message in a Bottle.
In a nutshell, while many readers loved the ending of that novel, a great many were furious with me for it. Really furious. This was on my mind while writing Walk, and part of me thought that if I killed off another major character, my readers would never forgive me. Nonetheless, when I started the novel, I knew that Jamie was going to die. Every page, every scene, every chapter was written with that idea and it continued to proceed that way right up until the end of the novel, when the time came to write those words.
I marveled at her strength and faith, and I was proud of everything for which she stood. Following that, Jamie asks Landon if he would go around town and retrieve the jars containing money collected for the orphans' Christmas presents.
Jamie downloads gifts for the orphanage, and Landon and Jamie spend Christmas Eve there. Jamie's Christmas gift to Landon is her deceased mother's Bible. As they get in the car to go home, Landon realizes his true feelings for her. The next day Landon visits Jamie at her house, where they share their first kiss on her porch. While Hegbert initially refuses, after Landon declares his love for Jamie, Hegbert allows it. On New Year's Jamie and Landon go to dinner, where they share their first dance.
A couple of weeks later, Landon tells Jamie that he is in love with her. To his surprise, Jamie replies by insisting that he cannot be.
In response, Landon demands an explanation, and Jamie reveals that she is dying of leukemia. The following Sunday, Hegbert announces to his congregation that his daughter is dying.
Jamie does not return to school the following Monday and that it is eventually learned that she is too ill and will never return to school. While they are having dinner at Landon's house, Jamie tells Landon, "I love you, too," for the first time.
A couple weeks later, Eric and Margaret visit Jamie's house, where they apologize for ever being rude to her. Jamie refuses to stay at the hospital, because she wants to die at home. In turn, Landon's father helps to provide Jamie the best equipment and doctors so she can spend the rest of her life at home.
This gesture helps to mend the gap between father and son. One day, while sitting next to Jamie while she sleeps, Landon comes up with an idea. He runs to the church to find Hegbert and asks him for permission to marry Jamie.
While Hegbert is reluctant, his refusal to deny Landon's request is seen by Landon as approval.I finished my first book and left me speechless.
For example, in chapter 4, Landon's best friends were making fun of Landon for potentially liking an outcast, Jamie. Landon wonders why she asks him about the graveyard.
Nicholas Sparks. The story is told by a guy named Landon Carter.
While Hegbert is reluctant, his refusal to deny Landon's request is seen by Landon as approval. In May I started read the book. Archived from the original on 14 September As winter begins to turn into spring, Landon is struck by how life comes back even as Jamie lays dying.
