Publisher's Summary

Seventeen year old Veronica "Ronnie" Miller's life was turned upside-down when her parents divorced and her father moved from New York City to Wilmington, North Carolina. Three years later, she remains angry and alientated from her parents, especially her father...until her mother decides it would be in everyone's best interest if she spent the summer in Wilmington with him. Ronnie's father, a former concert pianist and teacher, is living a quiet life in the beach town, immersed in creating a work of art that will become the centerpiece of a local church. The tale that unfolds is an unforgettable story of love on many levels - first love, love between parents and children - that demonstrates, as only a Nicholas Sparks novel can, the many ways that love can break our hearts...and heal them.

My Favorite Nicholas Sparks Audio

I've been on a Nicholas Sparks kick lately and I would have to say this one is a better story and listen than even "Dear John." As in Jodi Picoult's "My Sister's Keeper" format, the story is told from a variety of character viewpoints and I really enjoyed the work of the male and female narrators in this audio. The characters come to life and the ending was perhaps a little sappy and predictible, but the kind of happy, satisfying ending I prefer! Can't wait to see the movie.
