by Nicholas Sparks
In the tradition of A Walk to Remember, this is a story of a teenage girl and her first encounter with heartbreak ?? and love.
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.
First Line: Ronnie slouched in the front seat of the car, wondering why on earth her mom and dad hated her so much.
Favorite Line: " It's Galatians 5:22"
My Review: Nicholas Sparks never fails me! Bring your tissues with you when you sit down to read this book! Really not much more can be said, I mean hello NICHOLAS SPARKS wrote it, what more do you need!
