Thriller novelist David Baldacci shifts gears smoothly in this warm family drama. At first, its story seems grim: With Christmas approach, the Armstrong family is reeling from twin calamities. Lizzie, the mother, has just been killed in car crash and her terminally spouse Jack is suffering through his last days. After Lizzie's death, her willful mother Bonnie swoops to pluck the three children away, dispatching them to separate homes around the country. When Jack goes into unexpected remission, he resolves to reunite the family he believed was lost. A soul-lifting change-of-pace novel that works.
