Review of Twelve Months by Steven Manchester

Synopsis: "Don DiMarco has a very good life – a family he loves, a comfortable lifestyle, passions and interests that keep him amused. He also thought he had time, but that turned out not to be the case. Faced with news that might have immediately felled most, Don now wonders if he has time enough. Time enough to show his wife the romance he didn’t always lavish on her. Time enough to live out his most ambitious fantasies. Time enough to close the circle on some of his most aching unresolved relationships. Summoning an inner strength he barely realized he possessed, Don sets off to prove that twelve months is time enough to live a life in full.

A glorious celebration of each and every moment that we’re given here on Earth, as well as the eternal bonds that we all share, TWELVE MONTHS is a stirring testament to the power of the human spirit."

My Review: Wow! Just Wow! This was one of the most emotional books I have read in years! Okay now that I have that out of the way, let me talk about the book and my experience with it. When I first started reading it for some reason I could hear Paul Harvey's voice narrating it, I don't know where this came from but that was what I heard (I kept waiting for "And now you know the rest of the story"). Then by not even a quarter of the way through the book I had already had a few laughs, some cringes and then of course about twenty pages of sniffling and tears. There is so much that can be taken from this story (in fact I book marked several pages and highlighted lines) about family, love, caring for others, making peace and what means the most when time is short, but I think what I will take away most from this story is Bella. I can only hope and strive to be even half the wife that she was, the strength, love and support she radiated throughout the story was amazing. I hope that you will all give this book a chance, I think it is one of those books that could mean something different to each person who reads it.
My Rating: I really can't say enough about this book, it was an inspiration. I really hope you will get a chance to read it! I give it a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!
