I'm not a fan of sappy novels or even a Nicholas Sparks fan (I much prefer the movies based on his books). But something about this book grabbed my interest. Once I started reading it I realized what it was: the relationship between the main character Ronnie and her father Steve. My father & I had a falling out that lasted years and I also was with him later in his life. I don't want to spoil what happens so I will leave it at that. This book is going in my all time favorite list.
