Publisher Description

This inspirational New York Times bestseller chronicles the lifelong friendship between a busy sales executive and a disadvantaged young boy, and how both of their lives were changed by what began as one small gesture of kindness.

Stopping was never part of the plan...

She was a successful ad sales rep in Manhattan. He was a homeless, eleven-year-old panhandler on the street. He asked for spare change; she kept walking. But then something stopped her in her tracks, and she went back. And she continued to go back, again and again. They met up nearly every week for years and built an unexpected, life-changing friendship that has today spanned almost three decades.

Whatever made me notice him on that street corner so many years ago is clearly something that cannot be extinguished, no matter how relentless the forces aligned against it. Some may call it spirit. Some may call it heart. It drew me to him, as if we were bound by some invisible, unbreakable thread. And whatever it is, it binds us still.

Inspiring

I read the book in less than 24 hours because I was inspired by the story. This should be a movie. I also loved reading my first book on my IPad. I suggest you read this story of two people who were destined to meet.

Very Moving

I caught the tail end of Maurice and Laurie's story on Rachel and immediately purchased their book. I read it in 2 days! What a great story about the human heart. If only everyone could be like Laurie and Maurice...what a world it would be. Thank you for sharing your story.
