The romantic drama “The Longest Ride” hits theaters this weekend.
After writing books like “Message In A Bottle,” ”The Notebook” and “A Walk to Remember,” it’s probably safe to say author Nicholas Sparks is a romantic. His latest book, “The Longest Ride,” has been turned into a movie, which opens today.
He says it goes further than just being good to the person you’re in love with. Sparks says it’s important to show friends or children or neighbors how much you love them. He says romance at its heart is about action and people are largely defined by their actions.
