February 29th is a date that comes into existence just once every four years. It is also the birthday of Thais - author Anne-Dauphine Julliand's darling daughter - who died of a genetic disease. Thais lived just shy of her fourth birthday. She had a short life but good one. As this special day is about to reappear on her calendar for the first time since her daughter passed away, Anne-Dauphine struggles with how to mark this momentous occasion. She wants to live fully on this special day: Thais would have been eight years old.

Vivid memories of life with her daughter begin to blend with the present every gesture, every word evokes a buried memory, arouses laughter or tears. Yet as the date of her daughter's birthday approaches, she knows she must not lose sight of the family who needs her now: her sons Gaspard and Arthur, and Azylis, her other daughter who is also sick.

Anne-Dauphine's message remains simple, true, and strong: We all need to be loved and we all need to be happy despite our ordeals. This is both lesson in happiness and a wonderful love story. A Special Day is an honest, inspirational tale that has touched the hundreds of thousands of lives. It will leave the listener breathless with its beauty.
