From the "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Wednesday Letters" and "The Cross Gardener," a story of small kindnesses-and life-changing miracles.
Seventeen seconds can change a life forever. This is what Rex Connor learned on a gorgeous summer afternoon in 1970 when, as a lifeguard, he diverted his gaze for seventeen seconds and tragedy occurred. Forty years later the waves of that day still ripple through the lives of countless people, including his son, Cole.
Cole Connor has become a patient teacher, and now he has invited three struggling teenagers to visit him on his front porch to learn about Rex Connor-and the Seventeen Second Miracle. Together they will learn how Rex Connor could have allowed seventeen seconds to destroy him, but instead he chose to live every day believing the smallest of acts could change the world for good. And the students, each with their own secrets and private pains, will begin to understand that even tragedy brings lessons. Even pain brings comfort. Even death brings miracles. A seventeen second miracle can change a life-if you let it.

Rated 5 out of 5★ by An Amazing Book It only takes 17 seconds to change a life... whether that's a good influence or a making a poor decision that changes another life forever. A teenage boy shifts his focus for a brief moment and someone dies. But out of this tragedy, countless people are changed as they examine their own lives and look for opportunities to do something good, like holding a door open for someone rather than letting it slam in their face. Very inspirational. When you finish, you'll be looking for chances to do 17 second miracles in your own life. 12/31/2010
