An Hour To Live, An Hour To Love - Richard Carlson and Kristine Carlson

An hour to live, an hour to love is a genuine love story by Richard Carlson and Kristine Carlson. It was published on December 18th, 2007 by Hyperion.

Book Description:

If you had one hour to live and could make just one phone call, who would you call? What would you say? Why are you waiting? Richard Carlson's sudden, tragic death in December 2006 left his millions of fans reeling, but even their many letters, calls, and emails couldn't erase the loss felt by his wife, Kristine. To try and come to terms with her loss, she pored over 25 years of love letters, reliving the memories and cherishing her late husband's memory. But one letter stood out. Richard had written to his wife on their 18th wedding anniversary and attempted to answer the question: if you had one hour to live, what would you do, who would you call, and what would you say?
An Hour to Live, An Hour to Love is a profoundly moving book that shows the importance of treasuring each day as the incredible gift it is.

My Review:

Seriously, it's one of the best books I've ever read. I couldn't put it down till I finished it.

The book is devided into two parts. The first is the letter written by Richard, in which he asnwers the questions in the book description. The second is Kristine's letter as a reply for Richard's letter.

I loved the book for two reasons.
It shows that love is true and it can be found in real life. I only read about that kind of love and tragidy in novels, so it was nice to know that it do exist in this life.
Another reason is that it reminded me that somethings shouldn't wait. It either happens now or tomorrow it will be too late.

Simply, I recommend it for anyone. I am sure you wil enjoy it as much as I did.

(I have a copy of the book if you want to read it)
