Love stolen by the effects of anomic aphasia and the consequences of memory loss brought on by one of the greatest secrets in modern medicine.
This is a story about ordinary people who dream of having a Nicholas Sparks love story of their own.
This novel, The Samness of Sam, is a reader’s acclamation of The Notebook, and is in itself a great love story that explores the delicate, unconditional themes of love and the redemptive nature of faith. It describes the heart-wrenching effects of anomic aphasia on a gifted young professional and the consequences of short-term memory loss brought on by one of the greatest secrets in modern medicine.
Sam, impassioned by food, inspired by literature, guided by faith, wants a life that straddles the Biblical, Song of Songs with the lyrical prose of Nicholas Sparks. Ideally, like many of his zealous readers, Sam dreams of her Night in Rodanthe, her Message in a Bottle, her Notebook. She too wants a walk to remember, and when she meets Michael, an agnostic military medic who is harbouring a dark secret from a recent tour in Afghanistan, she finally, though fatally, becomes the lucky one. Sam wanted a love story, but doesn’t expect hers, like those in her beloved Nicholas Sparks novels, to come with its share of tragedy and separation.
