It turns out that he's spent most of his life seeking his father's approval, and as Chick explains in the novel, it's often the cold, distant parent whom you most want to love you. Updated April 21, "For One More Day" by Mitch Albom is the story of a man who gets the chance to spend one more day with his mother, who died eight years earlier.
The transitions are smooth and flow naturally with the writing. Chick was supposed to be with his mother the day she died, and he still harbors guilt over the fact that he wasn't.
When Chick tries to commit suicide, he wakes up in a world between life and death where he gets to spend one more day with his mother, who died eight years earlier. In the case of Charles "Chick" Benetto, a failed former professional baseball player, it's his mother, who passed away suddenly nearly eight years ago.
Caught in between life and death, Chick was transported back to the old house where he grew up and to his utter disbelief, he found his mother cooking breakfast!
He survived the ordeal and lived to tell the tale. Cons Like some of Albom's other work, it feels overly sentimental at points. However, Albom played God in this book.
