17-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 alienated 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 centrepiece of a local church. The tale that unfolds is an unforgettable story about love in its myriad forms - first love, the love between parents and children - that demonstrates, as only a Nicholas Sparks novel can, the many ways that deeply felt relationships can break our hearts... and heal them.

Not really my type of story. I would call it a teenage novel at best, a light romance at worst. It would make quite a good movie though, as its characters are colourfully portrayed.
Favourite story by Nicholas Sparks so far, and the two narrators have played the settings to the fullest.
"Nicholas pulls is off again"
Wow another great book, love the story, I liked the fact it was about young love, and teenagers confusion about parent motives, so real to life. Thanks
"fantastic moving story."
Wow, definitely at the top. It has everything, a story you can easily relate to, characters that you feel you know, some twists that you never thought of, just a very well written story of a family.
Finding more about Steve. Loved his character, near the end but not saying as it would spoil it.
When steve and Jonas hid the piano.
Families, thoughts, truth and unconditional love.
Very enjoyable story. Made me cry but that was because I felt I knew the characters.
