The Lucky One Written By: Nicholas Sparks Logan Thibault has just returned from his 3rd tour of duty with the US Marines from overseas and is on a new mission.
He will track down the girl from the photograph he found in the desert, to thank her for saving his life. Instead he works for her and her grandmother as a way to thank her. He becomes close with her son Ben, and her Nana and ultimately with Beth herself.
And just who did the photo of Beth that was found in the desert belong to? Why was Logan meant to find it? You get of more of a story this way. Well I can say that I was very pleased.
In The Lucky One, Nicholas Sparks uses his classic ways of telling this story about Logan, a marine, and Elizabeth, a teacher. It begins in Iraq, Logan Thibault sees a photograph of a beautiful woman laying in the hot sand of the Middle East. "The Higher Power of Lucky," by Susan Patron, is the story of ten-year-old Lucky Trimble who hears a fascinating concept when she eavesdrops on a meeting of members of a twelve-step group. The group is speaking about an elusive mystery called the "Higher Power.". Excerpt of The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks a Women's Fiction Contemporary book ISBN ISBN with cover, excerpt, author notes, review link, and availability.
Sparks writes in such a way that it keeps you informed, seduced, captivated, and never bored. The chapters move along swiftly and it is written so well that you are not struggling to make it through each chapter. Each chapter would focus on a particular character and the chapter would be titled with their name: Thibault, Beth or Clayton.
I loved that we got to delve into every characters lives. Everyone was explored with the same amount of backstory. You never felt a lack of information. Logan Thibault has quickly become one of my favourite book characters of all time. I found him, sweet, strong, caring, fun, romantic and protective with a good balance of humor.
I easily pictured Zac Efron in this role while reading it. I think that was pretty perfect casting.
But more on that in the movie review. What a sweet child who is severely misunderstood by his alpha male father. Ben would rather play chess, piano and violin rather than play sports. This woman is feisty and funny. This is the most trained and protective dog. This dog will never leave your side and will always protect his owner.
Does he like Beth, of course, would he hesitate taking Ben away if she were to do something wrong, of course not. According to Victor who is quite superstitious, he believes that Logan finding this girl is his destiny.
He was meant to find that photo for a reason.
Apart from the obvious human and canine characters there are another 2 characters I have not yet mentioned. The weather and the treehouse.
The weather can help fuel a story along. From the seductive heat to the dangerous storms. A powerful tool when telling a story like this. The treehouse is a beast of a character.
I am so glad I read this book. I absolutely loved it. Even stayed back at work to finish the epilogue. I read this in 2 days over 10 hours. I was addicted and felt so sad when I finished it.
I would recommend any Nicholas Sparks fans or avid readers to read this book. So much detail, so much story, so much beauty, so much love.Filled with tender romance and terrific suspense, The Lucky One is Nicholas Sparks at his best—an unforgettable story about the surprising paths our lives often take and the power of fate to guide us to true and everlasting love.

Parents need to know that in Three Times Lucky, a Newbery Honor Book, tween narrator Mo, was found floating down the river when she was a baby, and although she has loving adoptive parents whom she loves deeply, she spends much of her time wondering who her birth mother is. Mo and her best friend, Dale, get deeply embroiled in a murder.
The great thing about Nicholas Sparks is that as he weaves his stories you get so drawn in and attached to the characters, this book being no exception to that. However as you get so caught up in these characters' lives Sparks likes to really rip the rug out from under you, emotionally anyways.
In the lucky one that just didn't happen for me. Soon Thibault experiences a sudden streak of luck, winning poker games and even surviving deadly combat that kills two of his closest buddies. Only his best friend, Victor, seems to have an explanation for his good fortune: the photograph–his lucky charm.
