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.

As you can see by the cover, this is not a Secret Service/FBI political thriller. It's a sweet, inspiring, often painful story of a dying man who finds his life turned upside down when his wife dies and he miraculously recovers. The rest of the story is his struggle to regain his footing and hold his family together. I enjoyed it, but I must say there were certainly a lot of miracles. Be prepared to suspend disbelief and maybe shed a few tears ... if you're not okay with that, you will probably prefer his other books!
