A family's holiday tragedy becomes a powerful lesson about love in this moving Christmas tale from bestselling author Jacquelyn Mitchard.
A 14th wedding anniversary is nothing to sneeze at, Elliot Banner knows, but it's not exactly a landmark year, like 15, or 20, when he'll take his wife, Laura, to Paris. But when Laura's headache on the drive home from their anniversary date turns out to be more than a migraine, he wishes he had celebrated every year as though it were their last.
In this poignant, touching, uplifting story, a woman gathers her children and her family around her during the Christmas holiday, to celebrate their lives together, to prepare them for their future without her, and to leave them with her blessings for a happy life.
The complete history of a family unfolds in the span that speaks volumes about steel-strong love, trust and letting go - perfect holiday reading that underscores the true meaning of the season.
