Book Giveaway - The Lost Song by Nicholas Sparks

The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks

#1 bestselling author Nicholas Sparks's new novel is at once a compelling family drama and a heartrending tale of young love.
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 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.

A HUGE thank you to Hatchett books! I've got 3, yes 3 copies of this fantastic book to give away :)

Nicholas Sparks creates a compelling family drama centered around a rebellious teenage in The Lost Song. An unlikely rebellious nature has erupted in my granddaughter since her father died.
Her father, my son's, last song was a mix of Bon Jovi and The Beach Boy's Good Vibrations. It's lost.
