But 9/11 changes everything. John feels it is his duty to re-enlist. And sadly, the long separation finds Savannah falling in love with someone else.
Dear John, the letter read... and with those two words, a heart was broken and two lives were changed forever. Returning home, John must come to grips with the fact that Savannah, now married, is still his true love—and face the hardest decision of his life.

And I've heard not to watch the movie after reading the book because it will be disapointing. Great post! I saw the movie last week, i would have to say it was one of the best romantic films i have saw.
