Warm, tender, touching, inspirational, sad and ultimately uplifting, this author really knows how to put his finger on the pulse of life and press hard. It concerns a lost soul contemplating suicide and staggering home to find his mother … only thing is, she has been dead for years. If you know his The Five People You Meet in Heaven then you’ll know what he’s all about. If you don’t, then be prepared to be touched.
Comparison: Cecelia Ahern, Paulo Coelho, Ben Sherwood.

‘Every family is a ghost story . . .’
As a child, Charley Benetto was told by his father, ‘You can be a mama’s boy or a daddy’s boy, but you can’t be both.’ So he chooses his father, only to see him disappear when Charley is on the verge of adolescence. Decades later, Charley is a broken man. His life has been destroyed by alcohol and regret. He loses his job. He leaves his family. He hits rock bottom after discovering he won’t be invited to his only daughter’s wedding. And he decides to take his own life. Charley makes a midnight ride to his small hometown: his final journey. But as he staggers into his old house, he makes an astonishing discovery. His mother - who died eight years earlier - is there, and welcomes Charley home as if nothing had ever happened. What follows is the one seemingly ordinary day so many of us yearn for: a chance to make good with a lost parent, to explain the family secrets and to seek forgiveness.
