Blurb : 

On a stormy November evening, Jack Barrett had plans to treat his best friend Travis to a night of fine dining and jazz. As they neared their destination, a truck ran a red light, plowing through Jack's car, and changing his life forever. Jack found a new outlook on life, and took on adventures that made him one of the world's most admired people. With each step, Jack grew as a person and a leader; piecing together a family from different corners of the world, while risking himself and his family to save others. Jack's impact on the world was like no other, but in the end, when the lights and the cameras were gone, Jack was about to die, or was he? Prepare yourself for a surprising ending that questions the very nature between life and death, reality and dream.

Book Review:

I’m not sure if I liked this book or not.  It was different.  It was kind of like a reverse of the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life,” where you see what the person’s life was like, but wasn’t.  For those of you who didn’t understand that, read the book.  I don’t want to give it away.

            I don’t think I’ve ever read a book like this, although I’ve watched a few TV shows that have used similar literary techniques.  In the case of the book “One Moment in Time,” the plot was elaborately played out for the ending.  Again, left me confused about my feelings toward the book.

            The book was well written.  Had beautiful prose with an elegant plot line and easily pulled you in to the story line, it just left me unsettled and confused.

            Overall I would give the book a 3 out of 5 clouds.
