Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lou Sufferns successful career demands that he be in two places at one time—and neither of those is with his devoted wife and children. One frigid morning Lou meets a homeless man named Gabe and buys him a cup of coffee . . . then gives him a job—a random act of kindness that surprises Lou most of all. But soon Gabe is meddling uncomfortably in Lous life, popping up at the most inopportune times—as if Gabe actually can be in two places at once. With Lous personal and professional fates at important crossroads and Christmas looming, Gabe resorts to some unorthodox methods to show his stubborn patron what truly matters and how precious the gift of time is. But can he help him fix whats broken before its too late?

Synopsis:

The Gift is a magical, fable-like Christmas story from Cecelia Ahern, the celebrated New York Times bestselling author of P.S. I Love You and Thanks for the Memories. The story of Lou Suffern, a successful executive frustrated by the fact that he spends more time in the office than with his doting wife and two young children, The Gift is “a tantalizing tale wrapped in a tale....[the] perfect treat for the holidays.” (Sara Gruen)

About the Author

At twenty-one, Cecelia Ahern wrote her first novel, P.S. I Love You, which became an international bestseller and was adapted into a major motion picture starring Hilary Swank. Her successive novels—Love, Rosie; If You Could See Me Now; There's No Place Like Here; Thanks for the Memories; The Gift; and The Time of My Life—were also international bestsellers, published in forty-six countries and selling more than 15 million copies collectively. The daughter of Ireland's former prime minister, Ahern lives in Dublin, Ireland.
