Ballroom, located at 95 Calhoun Street in Charleston, South Carolina.

Set for release on Tuesday, October 16, Sparks explores the bittersweet
turns of fate in his newest novel "Every Breath," which follows two
individuals from opposite backgrounds and a powerful connection. Coming
to a crossroads in her life, Hope Anderson returns to her family's
cottage in North Carolina to reflect on her relationship that seems to
be stalling and her father's recent diagnosis of ALS. After receiving a
mysterious letter from someone claiming to be his father, Tru Walls
journeys from his home in Zimbabwe to North Carolina to unveil the
secrets and recapture the memories of his late mother's life. When the
crossroads for the two strangers converge, the connection is undeniable,
but their loyalty to each other might be overshadowed by family duty. In
Sparks' signature story about chance encounters and worlds colliding,
"Every Breath" illuminates the heartbreaking consequences of destiny and
the devastating test of loyalties between family and fate.

With 20 published books, Sparks garnered international stardom with his
first breakout novel, "The Notebook," which was adapted into the box
office hit of the same name starring Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling.
Earning a spot on the New York Times bestseller list numerous times,
Sparks has sold millions of copies and 11 of his books have been turned
