#1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks returns with an emotionally powerful story of unconditional love, its challenges, its risks and most of all, its rewards.
At 32, Russell Green has it all: a stunning wife, a lovable six year-old daughter, a successful career as an advertising executive and an expansive home in Charlotte. He is living the dream, and his marriage to the bewitching Vivian is the center of that. But underneath the shiny surface of this perfect existence, fault lines are beginning to appear...and no one is more surprised than Russ when he finds every aspect of the life he took for granted turned upside down. In a matter of months, Russ finds himself without a job or wife, caring for his young daughter while struggling to adapt to a new and baffling reality. Throwing himself into the wilderness of single parenting, Russ embarks on a journey at once terrifying and rewarding—one that will test his abilities and his emotional resources beyond anything he ever imagined.

“This, I remember thinking, is what life is really about. Love and laughter and friendship; happy times spent with those you care about.”- Nicholas Sparks, Two By Two
“Friendship isn’t about how long you know someone. It’s about who walks into your life, says ‘I’m here for you,’ and then proves it.”- Nicholas Sparks, Two By Two
“Remember that family — unlike most of those people you might meet in life — will always be around.”- Nicholas Sparks, Two By Two
“Happiness isn’t something someone can deliver. It comes from within.”- Nicholas Sparks, Two By Two
Inspiration for Two By Two
As a father of three boys and twin girls, I couldn’t be more aware of the unique relationships parents have with each of their children. In Two By Two, I chose to delve into the bond between a father and daughter, exploring the challenges, the risks and of course the rewards.
This is a powerful story of unconditional love, not only between these two characters but also with the family members that surround them. Sometimes life doesn’t go as planned, but it’s how you take each step forward, how you mend or break bonds, that can define your future. This novel allowed me to examine the emotional reserves we all have as families and how we can strengthen those in time.
