Publisher Description

From the author of The Five People You Meet in Heaven and Tuesdays with Morrie, a new novel that millions of fans have been waiting for.
"Every family is a ghost story . . ."
This is the story of Charley, a child of divorce who is always forced to choose between his mother and his father. He grows into a man and starts a family of his own. But one fateful weekend, he leaves his mother to secretly be with his father--and she dies while he is gone. This haunts him for years. It unravels his own young family. It leads him to depression and drunkenness. One night, he decides to take his life. But somewhere between this world and the next, he encounters his mother again, in their hometown, and gets to spend one last day with her--the day he missed and always wished he'd had. He asks the questions many of us yearn to ask, the questions we never ask while our parents are alive. By the end of this magical day, Charley discovers how little he really knew about his mother, the secret of how her love saved their family, and how deeply he wants the second chance to save his own.

I don't read much at all, and if I do I get bored quite quickly but the book had me very interested. I'm a mama's boy, so I quite enjoyed it and am happy to have it on my iPad.

I read this book and it made me cry, it truly shows you the love of a mother to her children. After I read it ( I finished at 12:30 in the morning.),
I called my mom crying to tell her I loved her. I felt pathetic, but it truly changes your life after you read it. Life changing book that you must read. Gives you a whole new perspective that will change every moment of your life forever. In a good way of coarse. It's a great life lesson.
