About this item

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... "

Mitch Albom mesmerized readers around the world with his number one New York Times bestsellers, The Five People You Meet in Heaven and Tuesdays with Morrie. Now he returns with a beautiful, haunting novel about the family we love and the chances we miss.

For One More Day is the story of a mother and a son, and a relationship that covers a lifetime and beyond. It explores the question: What would you do if you could spend one more day with a lost loved one

As a child, Charley "Chick" Benetto was told by his father, "You can be a mama's boy or a daddy's boy, but you can't be both." So he chooses his father, only to see the man disappear when Charley is on the verge of adolescence.

Decades later, Charley is a broken man. His life has been crumbled by alcohol and regret. He loses his job. He leaves his family. He hits bottom after discovering his only daughter has shut him out of her wedding. And he decides to take his own life.

He makes a midnight ride to his small hometown, with plans to do himself in. But upon failing even to do that, he staggers back to his old house, only to make an astonishing discovery. His mother--who died eight years earlier-is still living there, and welcomes him home as if nothing ever happened.

What follows is the one "ordinary" day so many of us yearn for, a chance to make good with a lost parent, to explain the family secrets, and to seek forgiveness. Somewhere between this life and the next, Charley learns the astonishing things he never knew about his mother and her sacrifices. And he tries, with her tender guidance, to put the crumbled pieces of his life back together.

Through Albom's inspiring characters and masterful storytelling, readers will newly appreciate those whom they love--and may have thought they'd lost--in their own lives. For One More Day is a book for anyone in a family, and will be cherished by Albom's millions of fans worldwide.

This novel is the best I have ever read. It really makes you think about the loved ones who you have lost and that are still here. It makes you wonder if you where as good to them as you thought you were. Did you say everything that you wanted to say? Could you have treated them better? Could you have done more for them? This book is extremly powerful and touching. I had to hold back tears throughout the whole book.

Customer review by NangNangMah

5.0 stars by NangNangMah

I originally saw this book advertised on an episode of my favorite TV show, Dr Phil. I bought this book for my mother on the day of my brothers death anniversary. I was hoping that this story would help her to somehow get through some of her grief and move on just a little bit from such a tragedy. She read it in just a few short hours and came to me crying afterwards, saying that she could not believe someone had put together such a beautiful story. She said she actually felt better for a while afterwards. I am giving this book a 5-star rating, simply because it did the job that I was hoping it would do.
