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.

We all are certain that death makes the last chapter's of our lives, in such a short time of the lost of many relaitives I find myself more and more wishing if I just had "One More Day" I think about all the things I would like to say, to talk about, and express my feelings toward our families, somehow we take so much for granted and then the time is over and we remember if I could have just one more day what I would have done or said differently and with this book, I can't say the same things that happened in this book was my life but I am always opened to realize that some people never have the life I call "Wonderful" but this has taught me that now I have the time to express my feelings with those that are special to me, even if I have to write a letter to leave behind to be found so they all would each have their own letter from me to keep, to read whenever, but just to know we all have that chance to say good-bye. I have had wonderful memories to cherish for the rest of mine but just ask yourself what if I don't get that "One More Day", love like you never have loved before, don't take life, a person, a pet or animal you see for granted. My life is a different life from the one in this book but there are many like this all over and everyday. This is a must read but with a open mind and realize all lives are not like a fairy tale but I felt so blessed and everyday I continue wishing I had just "One More Day"

A very touching and thought provoking book. Makes you look at your life now and try to do better with family, friends and loved ones, to say and do the things NOW that need to be said to one another, not putting it off for another day that may never happen.

The book was a little different than I expected, but I did enjoy it. It was fairly light reading. Made me think I wish life could really be this way.

This is another great Mitch Albom book. I enjoyed it as much as "Tuesdays with Morrie" and "The Five People You Meet In Heaven".
