From #1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci comes a moving family drama about learning to love again after heartbreak and loss.


It's almost Christmas, but there is no joy in the house of terminally ill Jack and his family. With only a short time left to live, he spends his last days preparing to say goodbye to his devoted wife, Lizzie, and their three children. Then, unthinkably, tragedy strikes again: Lizzie is killed in a car accident. With no one able to care for them, the children are separated from each other and sent to live with family members around the country. Just when all seems lost, Jack begins to recover in a miraculous turn of events. He rises from what should have been his deathbed, determined to bring his fractured family back together. Struggling to rebuild their lives after Lizzie's death, he reunites everyone at Lizzie's childhood home on the oceanfront in South Carolina. And there, over one unforgettable summer, Jack will begin to learn to love again, and he and his children will learn how to become a family once more.

This book is about a family whose mom passed away from a car accident and the father is also terminally ill and thought he only have a few months to live, so he give up his kids to his in laws, but he starts getting better and better everyday, so he decided to get his family back together. Its a heartbreaking, tearjerker but full of love.

Outstanding book. The best non-thriller that Baldacci has written in my opinion, and he has written some great no--thrillers. The narrators do a great job, this book would make a great movie. I even teared up reading it, and I'm a guy!!

This story of family is softer than many of his previous novels, yet Baldacci holds interest. 7 of 10 stars
