Mitch Albom mesmerized readers around the world with his
number one New York Times bestsellers, The Five
People You Meet in Heaven and Tuesdays with
Morrie. Now he returns with a beautiful, haunting novel
about the family we love and the chances we miss.
For One More Day is the story of a mother and a son,
and a relationship that covers a lifetime and beyond. It
explores the question: What would you do if you could spend
one more day with a lost loved one?
As a child, Charley "Chick" 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 the man
disappear when Charley is on the verge of adolescence.
Decades later, Charley is a broken man. His life has been
crumbled by alcohol and regret. He loses his job. He leaves
his family. He hits bottom after discovering his only
daughter has shut him out of her wedding. And he decides to
take his own life.
He makes a midnight ride to his small hometown, with plans
to do himself in. But upon failing even to do that, he
staggers back to his old house, only to make an astonishing
discovery. His mother -- who died eight years earlier --- is
still living there, and welcomes him home as if nothing ever
What follows is the one "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. Somewhere
between this life and the next, Charley learns the
astonishing things he never knew about his mother and her
sacrifices. And he tries, with her tender guidance, to put
the crumbled pieces of his life back together.
Through Albom's inspiring characters and masterful
storytelling, readers will newly appreciate those whom they
love -- and may have thought they'd lost --- in their own
lives. For One More Day is a book for anyone in a
family, and will be cherished by Albom's millions of fans
