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 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 centerpiece 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.

The last song has to have been the best book that I have read all summer. It really does live up to the description. From the moment that I started reading this book I felt connected with the main character, Ronnie. Granted I may have not had the type of life that she had, but I can relate to how she felt. Not only did I instantly connect with the character but the entire story had me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen. Nicholas Sparks has always had a way to intrigue me with the connections to how love should be but also has a quote or two in most of his books that I relate with.
