One Perfect Day by Lauraine Snelling

I read this book a while back, but haven't had time to post about it, since I've been spending my free time snuggling my precious baby.

This book indirectly encourages its readers to consider organ donation. It is something that can be easily done by checking a box on the back of your driver's license. The reader also is able to glimpse the grief of hurting and rejoicing women. Yes, I meant to say the grief of a rejoicing woman - read the book and you will understand...

Back of Book Says:

Nora Peterson is determined to make this Christmas perfect. Next year her twin teenagers will be off to college, and their lives will never be quite the same. With her husband delayed on a business trip abroad, Nora’s nerves are already frazzled when she gets the news of a car accident that will not only change the Petersons’ lives forever, but also those of another family whom they’ve never met.

As a nurse, Jenna Montgomery has always struggled with balancing her personal and professional lifer. Her daughter, Heather, has suffered from a heart defect for most of her life. Now that Heather is twenty years old and still on the organ transplant waiting list, Jenna must find a way to accept that this is likely their last Christmas together. Then the miracle Jenna has desperately prayed for becomes a reality in an instant, and Heather’s health is restored.
While Nora struggles with depression and grief, Jenna discovers that miracles aren’t always easy to receive.
