Extracts from this document...


Kirsten Nicole Danquah Mrs. Valdez END-2D1-01 November 24, 2007 Section 1- Chapters #1-9 The Rescue by Nicholas Sparks Response Journal #1 Chapters #1-9 In the novel The Rescue by Nicholas Sparks, I have observed that the character Denise Holton, is an over protective mother, who have never been in love before.
