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.

Synopsis

For One More Day by Mitch Albom

‘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.

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

Rebecca Jayne Barrett

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

Joan Hill

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.

Lesley Hart

I love Lovereading because of its ability to connect people that love books & unite them in a friendly, stimulating & interesting community.

Megan Olwen William

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
