An accident causes the separation of a father from his daughter. When Chris finally comes out of his coma nine years later, he has no memory of her. As he begins his life over with no idea who he is or what he is about, he becomes haunted by visions of a little girl. Not able to shake them, he gives into his visions of her and begins to paint her at different stages throughout her life.
Meanwhile, Krista is growing up in a household that is far from normal. Believing Gilmer and Maggie to be her real parents, her life turns out drastically different from what it was. Gilmer is hard-headed and he doesn’t think things through. Maggie’s sense of humor keeps everyone on their toes. But one thing they have in common is their love for their little girl.
Chris doesn’t know that he is looking for someone. Krista doesn’t know that she needs to be found. Both are just making it through this world the best they can. A funny and heartwarming story about love finding a way through anything.
The children's book Michael Allen wrote for his own daughter, When You Miss Me is a heartwarming children's book for children who are dealing with the absence of a parent. The book is a meaningful message that gives peace and comfort to a child who is dealing with loss.
It provides effective strategies to cope in the lonesome moments when a loved one is not near. But, it gives hope that it’s never too long before they are together again. Children of divorce, military families or whatever reason they find themselves separated from a parent will appreciate the invaluable message Michael Allen whispers inside.
