A fourteenth wedding anniversary is nothing tosneeze at, Elliott Banner knows, but it's not a land-mark year, like twenty, when he'll take his wife, Laura, to Paris. But when a headache on the drive home from their anniversary date -- two days before Christmas -- turns out to be more than a migraine, he wishes he had celebrated every year as though it were their last.
In this poignant, uplifting story, a woman calmly gathers her family around her to celebrate their lives together and to count their blessings.
A family history unfolds in a single night in this deeply affecting story about love, trust, and letting go -- a holiday read that underscores the true meaning of the season.
