Publisher's Summary

Robert Harlan has three loves: his wife, his daughter, and his writing. But when his thirst for success causes him to lose focus on his happy family life, ambition begins to consume him. When a stranger appears with a mysterious message about the brevity of his future, he discovers the truth about himself: who he has become, what he has lost, and what it will take to find love again.

©2004 Richard Paul Evans (P)2017 Penguin Audio

Critic Reviews

“He gives readers everyman, feel-good stories.” (Omaha World Herald

Loved the book and especially the message

It wasn't a roller coaster ride or a build up to a big moment....it was great throughout. It held my attention consistently and had a beautiful message about life and those apart of it who you love. Definitely worth the read!!

Favorite

I feel like each book that Richard Paul Evans writes is my new favorite! I love the countless messages and life lessons that are written into the story lines. By the end of the book I feel like the characters are people I really know. He has such a gift.

Enjoyable, light listen with strong family focus.

The story was interesting but not stellar. A family man is fired from a lackluster job and struggles with financial troubles and challenging physical labor jobs to make ends meet. He hits the bigtime due to the release of his first book yet many difficulties ensue as he balances success and family commitments. I appreciated the strong yet graceful wife who adds a dose of reality and love to his life as he fumbles through career advances. The story gets a bit hokey as a "wise death angel" element is introduced yet it did make sense in the context of the overall story. It's a nice Sunday afternoon listen but nothing earth shattering. Fans of Evans will enjoy this inspirational book and I will try a few of his other selections.

Richard Paul Evans never disappoints

I love how there are couples in the story who are overall devoted to each other. Although things can pull you off the path you can be faithful and forgiving.
The Twist in the story wasn’t really a surprise to me but it was perfect.

Another must read

I love to read a book that does not slam you in the head with filth, vile language and depression. Just a joy to read. It is intelligent and very interesting throughout!
