"Only sometimes life doesn't match what it should be. It just is. And people have to learn to accept it, no matter how hard it may be."

David Baldacci, who normally writes political thrillers, gives us a dramatic change with "One Summer." Jack Armstrong is a dying man--has an terminal illness and expects only to make it until after Christmas. Except the hub thinkable happens--his darling wife Lizzie dies in a car accident picking up his medicine.

Separated from his children, Jack lives in a Hospice center and miraculously recovers from him illness.

One Summer is one of those sad reads, with a predictable plot, but I will say that I enjoyed it for the most part. A father reconnecting with his kids at his wife's old home in South Carolina reminded me very much of a Nicholas Sparks novel. All jn all, of you're looking for a change of pace read that doesn't take too long to get through' "One Summer" is for you!!!
