FROM THE MASTER STORYTELLER WHOSE BOOKS HAVE TOUCHED THE HEARTS OF OVER 40 MILLION READERS

‘Mitch Albom sees the magical in the ordinary’ Cecilia Ahern

__________

Chika Jeune came into Mitch Albom’s life by chance. Growing up in the aftermath of the devastating 2010 Haiti Earthquake, at three years old she tragically lost her mother and was brought to the orphanage run by Mitch and his wife, Janine.

Chika made a quick impression. Brave and self-assured, she delighted those around her. But everything changed when Chika was diagnosed with a terminal disease that no doctor in Haiti could treat.

This discovery sparked a two-year, around-the-world journey in search of a cure. As Chika’s boundless optimism and humour taught Mitch the joys of caring for a child, he learned that a relationship built on love can never be lost.
