"An emotional, heartbreaking story of misunderstanding and denied love."

Fresh Fiction Review

The Last Song
Nicholas Sparks

Seventeen-year-old Ronnie Miller's world is turned topsy- turvy when her parents divorce. Being spiteful, for three years she's ignored her father Steve. Now Ronnie and her brother, Jonah, are reluctantly going to spend the summer with him in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. Once a warm, beautiful young lady who was a brilliant pianist and composer, Ronnie is now on the dark side with a colored streak in her hair and resistance in her soul. And she has not touched the piano since the divorce.

Arriving at the beach, Ronnie befriends the wrong kids and opposes every overture her father makes. Life begins to take on a new shade when she meets Will Blakelee. Facing shoplifting charges in New York and framed again in North Carolina by Blaze, her new friend, Ronnie faces serious charges. Then she learns devastating news that changes her life. She begins to question her true path in life, as well as her belief in God, as she strives to atone for the wrongs she has committed.

As usual, Nicholas Sparks has written a heartbreaking story of misunderstanding and denied love. Ronnie is a brilliant pianist with a bright future but willing to throw it all away until the real truth for the visit with her father comes to light. It broke my heart to see Ronnie's inability to change the future and rescind all the things she now regrets. This story is so full of emotion that you can't help but live it all through Ronnie's eyes. You will long remember this heart-wrenching story and keep the Kleenex handy.

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 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.
