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 Wrightsville Beach, 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.
Nicholas Sparks creates another moving portrait of young love, this time centered on "Ronnie" Miller, a New York teen who remains actively dysfunctional three years after her parents' divorce. The rebellious Ronnie is sent to spend the summer with her father in North Carolina, in the hopes that the soothing coastal atmosphere may calm her troubled soul. Instead, she finds herself possessed by the passions of her first love, and she must decide whether to fight these frightening new feelings or surrender to them and risk losing the spirit which forms her identity. As usual, Sparks's readers are encouraged to keep a hanky handy to catch the delirious tears which are sure to result from this heartfelt tale of what happens when two forms of love--familial and romantic--come in conflict.
