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.

This book, in typical Sparks fashion, was delightful to listen too. I was home rccovering from eye surg. I had begun reading this latest Sparks book just before surgery. I have read every Sparks book previous to this one and enjoyed every one. This story touched my heart this holiday season and I appreciate its great message of love, family and faith in self and family through changing & difficult times.
I love Nicholas Sparks, but I find that on occasion he can be overly predictable. Some of his novels have little to no plot, and this was one of those. I still enjoyed the book, but it was kind of boring; one that I could put down.
The author was able to tell the story in an organized and understandable fashion. It is a little predictable due to the nature of the story but it kept my interest and it was easy listening. I am older but recommend it to those who are tired of negative, destructive and stressfilled books. I liked it and recommend it to others. It was relaxing. It had a good ending.
