The most powerful love story to come along in years. Beginning with a wife's farewell to her husband in World War II, and continuing to the present day, James Michael Pratt weaves an emotional tale of love transcending time and space.

Television reporter Susan Allison is looking for the perfect story about true love, but her heart of hearts tells her such a thing doesn't really exist.

Writer Neil Thomas, Jr., wants only to share the powerful message of the Last Valentine, his parents' tragic, yet triumphant, 50-year love story, On February 14, 1944 Caroline Thomas said goodbye to her beloved husband, a Navy pilot sent to the Pacific. For 50 years, she waited for him to return-until a miracle happened and she received his Last Valentine.

In the present day, when Susan and Neil meet, neither of them expects the emotional outcome: that the story of Neil's parents will bring them together in a love as powerful as she dreams of and remembers. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " You know what? I really liked this book. It's really well written. It's captivating. You don't quite know what's going to happen until the very end...you think you might, but hey, it keeps you hooked. And it's a really good LOVE story. About how real love really is. And how to really love someone. It's just really sweet. I cried and smiled and felt like I could really relate to it. Loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jana | 2/11/2014

    " An old fashioned romance -- sweet message. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kari Garrett | 1/29/2014

    " I read this book a long time ago. I loved it so much, I recommended my husband read it. It is a great romantic love story. I think I will read it again! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 1/23/2014

    " Hmmm... it was ok. If you want a super cheesy, sappy, poorly written love story, this is it! But it was fun to read on Valentine's Day. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Julie | 1/2/2014

    " Sappy, poorly written, not believable. Maybe I was in the wrong mood when I read it. I can really get sucked into a good love story but this was one that I found myself rolling my eyes or gagging myself. I think the author went too far. It too un-believable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brendi | 12/31/2013

    " This book was too cheesy for me. I enjoyed the story of Caroline and Neil Thomas and there love story but didn't think the love story between his son and the reporter was believable. If you get a chance, watch the movie "the lost valentine". It was so much better and I cried like a baby watching it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Connie | 12/25/2013

    " This story broke my heart. Pratt certainly can write. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 12/25/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrea | 12/5/2013

    " A little too sappy, cheesy, and lovey-dovey for me. And for someone who thinks roses are bit too cliche, too many rose references. My overall feeling about this book - meh. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Dvorak | 11/16/2013

    " Beautiful World War II romance "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melody | 10/5/2013

    " You want to know how to define the word love? Read this book, it's the best explanation I have ever found. I think everyone should read this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helena Prophete | 3/12/2013

    " Unconditional love, faith and hope. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kriste | 12/14/2012

    " An interesting story, easy to read. It tells a nice story, but the writing isn't great and I found it a little flat in parts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blake | 11/10/2012

    " having known the author did not mater ... I still enjoyed the book. ha "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julia | 9/17/2012

    " I think I stole this one from my mom when I was younger and I just picked it up again so that I could be reading a book. I really liked it...though not one of my favorites. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 7/31/2012

    " Mostly well written. Enjoyed the WW2 parts. Too cheesy and the current-day romance wasn't even close to believable. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dan | 7/22/2012

    " I half read this book. And couldn't get into it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 7/19/2012

    " sugary-syrupy sweet. a little much. i guess i also hated that it wasn't even a true story. i would appreciate it way more if it was real. just a made-up sappy love story? hmm not so much. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica Viehweg | 6/30/2012

    " there were two romances going on in the book. i really liked the flash-back parts about WWII, but the modern romance was just dumb. Take all the modern out and leave a book about WWII and it would have been awesome. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karma | 6/8/2012

    " Pretty good - but almost too romantic. It seemed like so many things were just too perfect given the tragic circumstances. I think it is a true story though so it was kind of a lesson on making good things come from bad situations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolyn | 3/31/2012

    " I actually read this book before, it was just as good the second time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melanie | 3/16/2012

    " All I can say about this book, is that the author sure does love the phrase "the last valentine" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tonee | 1/8/2012

    " 3.5 - 4 stars. This is a good love story! It definitely had me in tears at several parts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 SoCalMediaSurfer- MiccilinaPiraino | 10/1/2011

    " You read about quirky things like this happening here and there and it makes you feel good. I was interested in Neil and Susan's separate stories that combine to be a real journey of discovery and love. Pratt always makes me believe in the improbable! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 9/17/2011

    " Enjoyed this romantic love story! Needed something different then Nicholas Sparks! "

    " Boo hoo! I'm such a cry baby! The ending was quite the tear jerker. I think it was a sweet story. A sweet story told a little TOO sweetly:) I didn't enjoy the writer's style, but I love stories from this era and would like to see the movie. 2.5. "
