On Friday morning, best-selling author Jeffrey Zaslow called his wife and told her about a talk he had given about his latest book at a bookstore in Petoskey, Mich. the night before.
Zaslow, 53, was moved that the bookstore owner thought readers would be touched by "The Magic Room: A Story About the Love We Wish for Our Daughters."
