Twelve Months by Steven Manchester (book review and giveaway)

I was recently sent Twelve Months by Steven Manchester to review. It sounded like a great book and I couldn't wait to dive in.

I absolutely loved this book. It was beautiful from beginning to end. I really got consumed in the story.

It is about a man Don DiMarco who finds out he has cancer. He decides that he better start living. He has a few adventures by himself and with his wife. Along the way he learns some important life lessons. It was a very touching story and it was well written.

Book Description


August 14, 2012


Don DiMarco has a very good life – a family he loves, a comfortable lifestyle, passions and interests that keep him amused. He also thought he had time, but that turned out not to be the case. Faced with news that might have immediately felled most, Don now wonders if he has time enough. Time enough to show his wife the romance he didn’t always lavish on her. Time enough to live out his most ambitious fantasies. Time enough to close the circle on some of his most aching unresolved relationships. Summoning an inner strength he barely realized he possessed, Don sets off to prove that twelve months is time enough to live a life in full.
A glorious celebration of each and every moment that we’re given here on Earth, as well as the eternal bonds that we all share, TWELVE MONTHS is a stirring testament to the power of the human spirit.
