Suffering from a terminal illness, Jack struggles to live for one last Christmas with his family while composing a letter a day for his wife to read after he is gone. When she is tragically killed in an accident, the three children are facing an uncertain future and Jack is moved to hospice.

But the unthinkable happens—Jack lives. His doctor is unable to explain his recovery, or if it will last for any period of time. Grieving for his lost wife, fighting with his in-laws, and trying to rebuild a strained relationship with his children, Jack takes the family to his wife’s childhood home on the coast of South Carolina.

Over that summer, he finds clues to his wife’s past, struggles to reconcile his grief, and helps his children learn to be a family again. And through these tribulations, Jack learns how to love again.
