Description
When U.S. Marine Logan Thibault finds a photograph of a smiling young woman half-buried in the dirt during his third tour of duty in Iraq, his first instinct is to toss it aside. Instead, he brings it back to the base for someone to claim, but when no one does, he finds himself always carrying the photo in his pocket. 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.      
   
Back home in Colorado, Thibault can’t seem to get the photo–and the woman in it–out of his mind. Believing that she somehow holds the key to his destiny,  he sets out on a journey across the country to find her, never expecting the strong but vulnerable woman he encounters in Hampton, North Carolina–Elizabeth–to be the girl he’s been waiting his whole life to meet. Caught off guard by the attraction he feels, Thibault keeps the story of the photo, and his luck, a secret. As he and Elizabeth embark upon a passionate and all-consuming love affair, the secret he is keeping will soon threaten to tear them apart–destroying not only their love, but also their lives.
    
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.

      • bioText: Ever since The Notebook made Nicholas Sparks a word-of-mouth publishing sensation in 1996, he has maintained his status as a bestselling author of tragedy-tinged love stories. His spare, simply themed novels star ordinary people overcome by extraordinary emotions, as well as changed by them.

        John Bedford Lloyd's career began in the early 1980’s, onstage, in film, and television generally in supporting roles. In the movies, the physically-imposing Lloyd is probably best known for his supporting parts in Crossing Delancey(1988) and The Abyss (1989). He has more recently supplemented his stage and screen work with a prolific career as a reader of audiobooks.
