Don DiMarco has a very good life – a family he loves, a comfortable lifestyle, passions and interests that keep him amused. He also thought he had time, but that turned out not to be the case. Faced with news that might have immediately felled most, Don now wonders if he has time enough. Time enough to show his wife the romance he didn’t always lavish on her. Time enough to live out his most ambitious fantasies. Time enough to close the circle on some of his most aching unresolved relationships. Summoning an inner strength he barely realized he possessed, Don sets off to prove that twelve months is time enough to live a life in full.
A glorious celebration of each and every moment that we’re given here on Earth, as well as the eternal bonds that we all share, TWELVE MONTHS is a stirring testament to the power of the human spirit.
Twelve Months is an emotional book that follows Don DiMarco in the aftermath of his receiving terrible news about his health. When his doctor informs him that he may only have twelve months to live, he goes through the usual stages of grief, before determining to live his last few months to their fullest.
Don revisits meaningful scenes from his past, reconnects with his wife and family, and strives to truly enjoy the rest of his time on earth.
This emotionally charged novel is a wonderful exploration of the meaning of living life to it’s fullest, before it’s too late. This type of book is always somewhat hard to read, but definitely worth your time.
