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.

"Sparks's legions of admirers will relish this emotional roller coaster ride narrated in two voices. Pepper Binkley and Scott Sowers alternately read sections of the story. Binkley portrays the female characters, including 17-year-old Ronnie Miller, who seeks to reconnect with her estranged father during summer vacation in Wilmington, North Carolina. While Binkley's voice is suitably youthful for the teenaged Ronnie and her Southern accents are consistent, she often recites in a stilted manner. Sowers presents the story from the points of view of Ronnie's father and the other male characters. His deep, serious voice imbues Steve's quest for religion and family with purpose. Background piano music underscores the wistful yet uplifting mood of the story. C.A. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
