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 was a different sort of book for David Baldacci, not the mystery suspense of his usual writing tone. Yet it was a refreshing retreat. The storyline takes some unexpected turns and keeps the reader interested. It is a bittersweet reminder to all of us what is most important in life J.K. St. Ores, Hudson, Wi
