Ronnie and her brother are sent to the coast of North Carolina to spend the summer with their father. Small town life is very different compared to their life in NYC. Ronnie is very upset with her father because he left their family three years ago. She is not happy about spending the summer with him in Wilmington. Her father was once a concert pianist and a piano teacher. He now spends his time working on stained glass window to be put in the church he attended as a child. Ronnie and her father are both unsure of what the summer will bring but are surprised with what they find.
I loved this book. Absolutely loved it. Probably my second favorite Nicholas Sparks book. It was so amazing. This was a wonderful story of love. I wasn't sure what to expect when I first started reading it, but after a few pages I was hooked. I cried several times throughout the book. I highly recommend this book. Please read it before you see the movie.
