One frigid morning in an uncharacteristic burst of generosity, workaholic Lou Suffren buys a cup of coffee for Gabe, a homeless man huddled outside his office building. Inspired by his own unexpected act of kindness, Lou decides to prolong his charitable streak and contrives to get Gabe a job in his company's mailroom. But when Gabe begins to meddle in Lou's life, the helping hand appears to be a serious mistake. Gabe seems to know more about Lou than Lou does about himself, and, perhaps more disturbingly, Gabe always seems to be in two places at once.
With Lou's personal and professional fates at important crossroads and Christmas looming, Gabe resorts to some unorthodox methods to show his stubborn patron what truly matters and how precious the gift of time is. But can he help him fix what's broken before it's too late?
I thought this was a great story! Not your typical Christmas story where two people fall in love. It really makes you think about life and just like it said in the book, time is precious. It was very well written and I didn't get bored once. Great twist at the end, I didn't expect it at all. It teaches you how important your family can be an how important time is. I loved it!
