When The Moon Was Twice As Big
In each of our lives come moments when dreams are sparked and a course is set toward the life we imagine. So it is as we follow ten-year-old Jack in the summer of 1969.
Inspired by an extraordinary new friend, his test-pilot father, and history unfolding with humankind's first steps on the moon, Jack’s passion for space ignites within him.
But life-changing events alter Jack’s course.
Forty years later and about to turn fifty, Jack finds he’s landed far from the life he pictured as a boy. Now he must choose whether to simply accept and settle – or take one giant leap of faith and follow the dreams of his youth, dreams born when passion burned brighter, when everything seemed possible...
... when the moon was twice as big.
