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.

Ronnie and her brother Jonah are sent to North Carolina to spend the summer with their estranged father. Their father left his prestigious position at Julliard to pursue his dream of being a concert pianist. His time away put a strain on his family and eventually ended his marriage. He now calls Wrightville Beach, NC home.
Ronnie never forgave her father for ruining their family. In fact, she hasn't spoken to him in three years. She's livid that her mother is forcing her to do this. As soon as she sets foot in her father's house, she's determined to plan her return back to New York. As soon as she enters her father's house, she puts distance between them by spending her first night away from his home. It's on this night that she first meets Will followed by Blaze. It's this night that will change her summer.
The Last Song is told in four differing points of view: Ronnie, Steve, Will and Marcus. Through each perspective, Mr. Sparks reveals more of the story and at times flashing back to the past to provide more history. Each character has something to add to the events of that summer and reading it in his or her own voice adds to the realness of the story.
Early on I had a hint of how the novel would end. As I realized my assumption was right, it didn't prepare me for the emotions I felt as I continued to read. The Last Song isn't only about love. It's also about learning how to forgive yourself for your past mistakes so you can move forward.Read more ›
Ronnie usually spends her time hanging out at the clubs of New York City, and when she's forced to a town where the only fun you can have is fishing and surfing, she's bummed. She doesn't fit in with the people around here, and knows this will be the worst summer of her life. On the brighter side, she's met Blaze, a misfit just like her, but will their friendship last throughout a summer filled with drama, violence, and grief?
It's been a long time since I've picked up one of Nicholas Sparks' novels, and I'm kicking myself for it. This novel has to be one of the best that I have read this entire year. It was not only filled with a heart wrenching story of father and daughter, but a love story that will have you sighing with pleasure. I honestly had a hard time putting this book down, and am actually quite sad that I even had to finish it! This was one of those books that I wish would just go on forever, so that I could continue to read the story of Ronnie.
I cried multiple times during this novel, for reasons that you will understand when you pick up this novel. Ronnie's character is driven by her emotions, and you can feel each and every one of those emotions emanating from the pages. I personally felt for her each and every step of the way.Read more ›
I must say that when I first started reading this book I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. I'm 40 years old now and happily married with three great kids - so a summer romance between teenagers just wasn't up my alley. As I read it though, "The Last Song" slowly began to grab a hold of me. What Sparks has a knack for is creating absolutely great and likable characters. You really get to see how an immature girl grows into a beautiful young woman in this story. I just loved the character development and it is what truly had me enamored throughout the whole story. True - it is a summer romance - but as you get into the book you quickly learn that there is much more to it. There is also a spiritual element to this story that is really touching. Though not preachy - the story is convicting - if that makes any sense. This is definately one of my favorites by Nicholas Sparks and one I'll likely read again.
I know that teenagers will love this book - but I really think this book is just as much for the young at heart as well. "The Last Song" greatly exceeded my expectations.
