From the Publisher
Annotation Cecilia Ahern likes to add a dash of magic to her bestselling novels, so it is appropriate that she has finally set one of her fantastic tales at the most magical time of year--Christmas. In Ahern's 21st-century version of THE CHRISTMAS CAROL, an obsessed executive named Lou Suffern has been neglecting his family by spending all of his time at work. One morning, Lou befriends a homeless man named Gabe, who earns himself a job by revealing some pertinent information about Lou's office rival. Eventually, Lou discovers that Gabe has a miraculous knack for being in two places at once, and when Gabe lets Lou share this talent for one incredible night, this modern-day Scrooge finally appreciates how badly scrambled his priorities have been.
Editors Note Despite job stress and a crumbling home life, workaholic businessman Lou Suffern gives Gabe, a homeless man, a job in his company's mail room; but the mysterious Gabe seems be in two places at once and he's meddling in Lou's private affairs, in a story where Gabe eventually teaches Lou a valuable lesson. By the author of P.S. I Love You. 100,000 first printing.
