Charley Benetto is a broken man, his life destroyed by alcohol and regret. He loses his job. He leaves his family. He hits rock bottom after discovering he won't be invited to his only daughter's wedding. And he decides to take his own life.
Charley takes a midnight ride to his hometown: his final journey. But as he staggers into his old house, he makes an astonishing discovery. His mother - who dies eight years earlier - is there, and welcomes Charley home as if nothing had ever happened.
What follows is the one seemingly ordinary day so many of us yearn for: a chance to make good with a lost parent, to explain the family secrets and to seek forgiveness.
This is my first book from Norhafsah Hamid, and I'm in love with her writings. The storyline somehow feels near to me, and it made me reflect on myself in many ways including your relationship with parents, friends and even colleagues.
Recommend, a very inspiring tale of love and the preciousness of life. I enjoyed and loved every single chapter.
What a beautiful story. This book will make you reconsider on how you treat your mother before this. You tears will be non stop, even make you want to hug your mum tightly. After reading this book, you definitely would think your mum harder, even miss her deeply.
What a great book! This books will teaches you that mother's love is the purest thing above all, and how far can a mother sacrifices everything in the name of love. Fame, wealth and power are only physical and affectionate things yet mother love is eternal and so powerful.
I've read this book along my journey from KL to Pahang and I cried like a baby all the way. It really made me miss my mum a lot and I am overwhelm with guilt all over for what I've done to her for the past few years.
Don't worry about understanding the story as the author just using simple and comprehensible english.
Highly recommended for those who abandoned their loves one and also for those who felt like something missing from their life!
