A construction supervisor in Atlanta, Georgia, Nathan Bishop has worked hard to become a personal, professional, and financial success-to the detriment of his family and friends. His wife Heather and twelve-year-old daughter Malley rarely see him, and his family back home in southern Georgia barely knows him anymore. That is, until an accident on the job and subsequent hospital stay reveal a growth on his lungs.
Faced with the possibility of losing everything, Nathan begins to rebuild long-neglected relationships, starting with his wife and daughter, and ultimately takes a life-affirming journey with his father. Along the way, he rides on a bull named Fu Manchu, goes skydiving and Rocky Mountain climbing, grants forgiveness he'd been denying, and reconnects with the good book. Nathan realizes that he wants to spend time living and loving to the fullest-and in the end, that is his legacy.
Readers of fiction and inspirational books, as well as country music fans and others touched by the hit song, will want to own this poignant book. Like Mitch Albom's Tuesdays with Morrie and Donna VanLiere's Christmas Shoes, the novella prompts readers to make the most of every moment in life.
