The Patron Saint of Used Cars and Second Chances

A Memoir

By Mark Millhone
Narrated by Ray Porter / 5 hours 27 minutes

Welcome to the tragedy-of-the-month club! In one nine-month period, Mark Millhone's youngest son nearly dies from birth complications, his oldest son is injured in a household accident, his father is diagnosed with prostate cancer, and his mother has a heart attack and passes away. In the aftermath of this year-from-hell, his marriage also begins to fray. He deals with this as only a "real man" could: he logs on to eBay and bids on his dream car. The like-new BMW becomes more than a car for Millhone-it's almost a prayer to the patron saint of used cars and second chances to make his family like new again. Joined by his estranged dad, he embarks on a dysfunctional family road trip to pick up the car-a comedy of errors that gives Millhone life-affirming perspectives on how to navigate the road of life's bumpy patches.
