It’s safe to say that when Mitch Albom writes a new book, a bazillion people are going to buy it—and we know why. Albom knows how to tell a tale that taps our deepest feelings about the people we cherish most. His stories have universal appeal, centering on ordinary folks coming face to face with the true meaning of life. They evoke raw emotion—not to mention raw noses—and make us remember that love really is the most important thing in the world.
Albom’s heart-wrenching new book beautifully explores the bond between mother and child, and asks a question that cuts to the core: What if you were granted one more day with a loved one who has passed on?
Charley Benetto’s life began to unravel the day his mother passed away. Never having gotten the chance to say goodbye, he wallows in his guilt about the woman he believes he always disappointed. A baseball player-turned-salesman, he is a drinker, disgusted with his life—especially after destroying his marriage and his relationship with his daughter.
Having lost the will to live, Charley goes to his childhood home and attempts to take his own life, but instead of meeting his maker, he encounters his mother—who seems never to have left. Baffled and lost, Charley tries not to question the miracle before him and instead accepts her request to spend a day with her. But will he finally find the peace he has yearned for, after so many years?
The emotional journey to the answer is a profound one you won’t soon forget. Just be sure to have the tissues handy.
