Toda familia es una historia de fantasmas...

Mitch Albom conquistó lectores en todo el mundo con los bestsellers número uno en el New York Times, Las cinco personas que encontrarás en el cielo y Martes con mi viejo profesor. Ahora regresa con esta bellísima e inolvidable novela sobre el amor familiar y las oportunidades que dejamos pasar.

Por un día más es la historia de una relación entre una madre y un hijo que dura toda una vida y mucho más. Explora la siguiente pregunta: Qué harías tú si pudieras pasar un día más con un ser querido que ya no está?

De niño, Charley Benetto aprende de su padre que Puedes ser un niño de mamá o un niño de papá. Pero no puedes ser ambas cosas a la vez. Entonces elige a su padre y lo idolatra--hasta el día en que desaparece. A los once años, Charley queda en manos de su madre, quien muy valientemente lo cría ella sola a pesar de la vergüenza y el anhelo de Charley por ser parte de una familia completa.

Décadas más tarde, Charley es un hombre descompuesto. El alcohol y el remordimiento han ido desmoronando su vida. Pierde su trabajo. Deja a su familia. Toca fondo al descubrir que su única hija no lo invitó a su matrimonio.

Entonces decide quitarse la vida.

A medianoche emprende un viaje a su pequeño pueblo natal para acabar con su existencia. Pero al fracasar hasta en eso, se tambalea hasta su antigua casa, donde hace un increíble descubrimiento. Su madre--que murió ocho años atrás--aún se encuentra en la casa y lo recibe como si nada hubiera pasado.

Lo que sigue es un día cualquiera como el que muchos anhelamos, una oportunidad para reconciliarnos con un familiar desaparecido, para explicar secretos familiares y para buscar perdón. En algún lugar entre esta vida y la otra, Charley se entera de cosas que nunca había sabido sobre su madre y lo mucho que sacrificó. Y con su cariñosa ayuda, Charley intenta recomponer los trozos rotos de su vida.

Por medio de los inspiradores personajes y la magistral escritura de Albom, los lectores volverán a apreciar a las personas que quieren--y creen haber perdido--en sus propias vidas. Por un día más es un libro para cualquier miembro de la familia y que será apreciado por los millones fans de Albom en todo el mundo.

Synopsis:

This is the story of Charley, a child of divorce who is always forced to choose between his mother and his father. He grows into a man and starts a family of his own. But on one fateful weekend, he leaves his mother to secretly be with his father ??? and she dies while he is gone. This haunts him for years. It unravels his own young family. It leads him to depression and drunkenness. One night, he decides to take his life. But somewhere between this world and the next, he encounters his mother again, in their hometown, and gets to spend one ???last day??? with her ??? the day he missed and always wished he???d had. He asks the questions many of us yearn to ask, the questions we never ask while our parents are alive. By the end of this magical day, Charley discovers how little he really knew about his mother, the secret of how her love saved their family, and how deeply he wants the second chance to save his own.
