What would it be like to spend just one more day with the person we have loved but is now long lost to us? In For One More Day, author Mitch Albom takes you on a journey of self-realisation, subtly pulling at your heart strings through an amazing tale of love, deep-seethed anger and inherent respect.
When Charley Benetto is told by his father at a young age that he can either be like his mother or his father, and he chooses the latter. But as he grows up, his father abandons him and leaves a gaping hole in his life. We then meet our protagonist years later, when he is a distressed man, broke and out of luck with his family. Pondering on killing himself, Charlie goes to his hometown and inadvertently stumbles upon his childhood home. Here, he is shocked and surprised when he meets his mother, who has been dead for eight years. What follows is a heart-warming account of how Charlie and his mother mend the bridge that was broken between them and spend one more day together.
