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 good-bye 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 one another 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 begins to learn to love again, and he and his children learn how to become a family once more.

This book touched my heart and I agree with the idea of a full length movie.

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!!

Another great book from David Baldacci . If you liked Wish You Well, you will like this one.

This book showed me a whole new side to David Baldaaci. Wonderful story of how love can conquer even the greatest of life's problems. 9 of 10 for me.

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