a book in review!

Brief Summary: 
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.

My uncle recommended this book to me and seeing as it's one of his fave authors, I thought "why not?" This story tugs are your heart strings. It has tons of ups and downs, funny moments, heartbreaking moments, and tons in between. It's beautifully written, you won't want to put it down. It's a story that makes you think about your own "what if's?" and really gets your internal conversation started. I normally only read within the chick lit genre, but this book was a perfect read. I recommend this book 5 star book to anyone who is looking for a thought provoking story that will take you thru a personal journey of love, family, and self, xo!
