The Seventeen Second Miracle | [Jason F. Wright]

The Seventeen Second Miracle

Seventeen seconds can change a life forever. This is what Rex Connor learned on a gorgeous summer afternoon in 1970 when, as a lifeguard, he diverted his gaze for 17 seconds and tragedy occurred. Forty years later the waves of that day still ripple through the lives of countless people, including his son, Cole.

Publisher's Summary

Seventeen seconds can change a life forever. This is what Rex Connor learned on a gorgeous summer afternoon in 1970 when, as a lifeguard, he diverted his gaze for 17 seconds and tragedy occurred. Forty years later the waves of that day still ripple through the lives of countless people, including his son, Cole.

Cole Connor has become a patient teacher, and now he has invited three struggling teenagers to visit him on his front porch to learn about Rex Connor-and the Seventeen Second Miracle. Together they will learn how Rex Connor could have allowed 17 seconds to destroy him, but instead he chose to live every day believing the smallest of acts could change the world for good. And the students, each with their own secrets and private pains, will begin to understand that even tragedy brings lessons. Even pain brings comfort. Even death brings miracles. A 17-second miracle can change a life - if you let it.

    This book helps you find humbleness. Great book, maybe bait happily ever after. But very good

    What did you love best about The Seventeen Second Miracle?

    Made me think, made me cry, made me change and want to change to be a better person in this world.


    What did you like best about this story?

    17 second miracles ...


    Have you listened to any of Lincoln Hoppe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I am will look for more of Hoppe's recordings as this one was a 10.


    If you could rename The Seventeen Second Miracle, what would you call it?

    Never ever ever Give Up.


    Any additional comments?

    Absolutely the best book this year I have read. If I do something kind for one person, this book made a difference in this world. Most books can not begin to claim that. PERIOD.

    "A slow start"

    While it started up slowly, it built up steam very nicely and had a nice message. A quiet sort of read, but nice.
