Mitch Albom once again exceeds himself with this latest novel. The basis of the story centres around how you would spend one last day with someone that you had lost. We all have stuff that is left unfinished with lost loved ones; Mitch hits at the heart strings by making us question how we would spend one last day.
Having lost a loved one, I would give my eye teeth to have one last day or a last hour. This book made me consider the lessons that I had learnt while my Grandmother was alive, rather than mourning what I did not have. It made me feel grateful for her continued prescence in my life and the life long lessons that I carry through with me.
Albom writes beautifully, carrying the reader with his every word. Ensuring that we are hanging on the story as it unfolds, wishing that we were the main character. The moral surrounding the family and renewed and rejoiced connections, is cleverly entwined with beautiful descriptions and annotations. There have been few books that have touched my heart, like this one. A must read for everyone :-)
