Overview

It has been a hard year in New York City for princes and for beggars; and twenty-eight year old Charlie Andrews, a Wall Street profiteer, believes he has lost everything that matters in the world when he steps out onto the window ledge of the twenty-second floor of The Waldorf Hotel on a cold evening five days before Christmas. He has no idea that the last call he made on his cell phone has placed his fate in the hands of a young homeless woman who runs through the falling snow and turns his life with a brief exchange of dialogue: Most of us miss the real story, Charlie. What real story? The story we were put in this world to live. Why do we miss it? Because it's someone else's story. We just play a part in it. Thus begins their unforgettable journey into a dreamscape of time and memory on a train traveling through a blizzard to deliver them to the meaning and purpose of their lives.

I love the way this author writes. He captures your attention immediately. A young man is planning to jump from a hotel ledge because of financial ruin. He is rescued by a young woman and his journey begins. Great ending and so well written. I will have to read other books by Mr. Snyder.
