The Living Room

by Bill Rolfe
About the Book:  Daniel Clay has good looks, money, and a rising career as a New York investment advisor. Meanwhile, his personal life is barren of love and family. But when a distant relative dies and leaves him a house in England, Daniel embarks on a life-changing journey—toward love and his soul’s awakening.

He meets and falls in love with Claire, a children’s palliative care nurse. With her help, he opens his home and heart to comfort young patients in their final days. As Claire tends to the children in a beautiful glassed-in room overlooking the sea, Daniel prays for miracles. Just when his prayers are answered, a mysterious illness strikes him down and relentlessly drains away his life. With no hope for a cure, Daniel holds fast to a deep secret that he can never reveal. And now, he needs a miracle of his own.

About the Author: 

Late on night back in July 2002, I fell asleep and had a dream. It was unlike
any dream I had before or since. It was like watching an extended movie, and it
ended with instructions for me in the rolling credits. I awoke in shock and
glanced at the clock next to my bed, only to discover what seemed like hours of
sleep had only been a few minutes. I got up, sat at my desk, and spent the rest
of the night writing everything down. Never having written anything before, I
took the next few weeks to follow the instructions from the dream – share the
story in a novel. After a few months of being inspired by the story, but at the
same time feeling overwhelmed with the project, I put it away. However, I
couldn’t forget it. Now, after more than nine years of struggling with the
process and battling against my own self-doubt, I’m ready to share the story.
“The Living Room” was my dream. Bill Rolfe

My Thoughts:  I cried. What a touching book. I was not prepared for The Living Room and the emotions it would stir up. Bill Rolfe has taken a dream he had, and turned it into an emotional story of faith, love and the importance of family first that will touch every heart, and perhaps remind this busy world what truly matters. 
To be honest thinking of this book today, after so many children were thoughtlessly killed over the weekend, I can’t help but feel it’s message is even more important. Hold to your families. Let their love hold you up and carry you through. Working parents, hold your children a little tighter. You never know when something could pull them from you. Don’t get so caught up in the work life that you don’t have time for home life. When you make home life a priority, the rest will work itself out.
