The Final Note: A Novel by Kevin Alan Milne

In this brand-new novel from bestselling author Kevin Milne, readers will be inspired yet again by the themes of love, loss, and renewal. Ethan met and fell in love with Anna while studying music abroad in college. He married her, and fully expected to grow old with her. After all, they were young, life was good, and faith in each other came easily, as evidenced by the Love Notes Anna periodically left between the strings of his guitar.

On their wedding day, Ethan promised to love, honor, and cherish his wife...and to write a song for her. Fast forward to the present day. Despite his grand promises, reality has proven to be much harder than he anticipated. Instead of composing hit songs, he's working long hours to provide for his family, and still promising to finish Anna's song. His formerly hopeful spirit is almost too heavy to carry, weighed down as it is by regret.

His grandfather, a veteran of World War II, knows a thing or two about regret and bitterness, and has his own stories to tell. One in particular, has the potential to change Ethan's attitude and help him put the past to rest, if he can open his heart to the truth of it.

Can an old soldier's tales of war help Ethan relinquish his anger? Is it too late to finish the song he began for Anna on their wedding day? Will he be able to remember why he fell in love so many years ago? In this tale of loss and heartbreak, love and forgiveness, Ethan is about to discover that the final note has yet to be written.

This is a fantastic book! It is a beautiful story of love and all the things that get in the way in our daily lives. It's also about much more than love though; and has a wonderful message of courage and forgiveness. The characters had depth and were all endearing. Warning: this novel will make you cry, and likely cry again. Even my 17 year old son, who passed this book on to me, admitted to crying "once" while reading it. I would highly recommend this book. It's definitely one you won't want to put down and now on my "best read" list.

This was a very book. It started out kind of boring. I thought i might not finish it, but I' m glad i did. There are very few books that I have not finished reading. Mostly because because a book is either full of filth or a lot of cursing. I think a good review has to include weather the book has bad language and sexual content. This book did not have either.
