Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Deal of a Lifetime by Fredrik Backman, read by Santino Fontana.

The father has a story he needs to share before it's too late. As he tells his son about a courageous little girl lying in a hospital bed a few miles away, he reveals even more about himself - his past regrets, his hopes for the future.

Now, on Christmas Eve, he has been given the chance to do something remarkable that could change the destiny of the little girl he hardly knows. But before he can make the deal of a lifetime, he must find out what his own life has actually been worth, and only his son can reveal the answer.

With humour and compassion, Fredrik Backman's The Deal of a Lifetime reminds us that life is a fleeting gift, and our legacies rest in how we share that gift with those we love.

Poor

Really struggled to finish. I didn't enjoy it and reminded me of a poor version of the Christmas carol.
