Book Description:

Alex crossed to the bed, where the only woman he had ever loved lay immobile. There was an ugly dark bruise along her jaw, but far more shocking was the plastic breathing tube protruding from between the lips he’d kissed only hours earlier. Despair and fear rose in Alex’s throat. ‘We have a little boy. His name is Connor. He still needs his mother… We both do.’

When Lisa married Alex, she gave his life meaning. She was a professional astronomer: a stargazer. And when she gazed at Alex, she saw that behind his tough exterior was a man she could love.

Alex, Lisa and their young son Connor made a happy little universe. But then Lisa dies in a train crash, and their perfect world is destroyed. Alex is shattered by loss, and overwhelmed by the difficulties of being a single father to a six-year-old. How can he and Connor carry on without Lisa lighting up their lives?

But throughout her life Lisa touched the hearts of more people than just her family. And as those people whose fates were changed come forward after her tragic death, Alex hears their stories and begins to realise the world may not be as cruel and senseless as it seems. If you can find the strength to start over, there are new beginnings in even our most heartbreaking moments…

Million-copy bestselling author Dani Atkins returns for this gripping, powerful and emotional page turner that fans of Jodi Picoult, Diane Chamberlain and Kate Hewitt will find completely unputdownable.

My Review:

Gone Too Soon by Dani Atkins is an emotional rollercoaster read centering on a tragic accident that brings a broken family together with four strangers who all share something special. When Alex loses his wife, Lisa to a tragic accident, he does not know how he will ever move on nor how Connor, their six year old soon, will ever be able to cope with losing his mother. But, can four strangers help both Alex and Connor to heal from their loss?

Dani Atkins has written a heartbreaking story centered around a devastating accident that took the life of a loving wife and mother. The story is raw and emotional, but also filled with hope, forgiveness and new beginnings especially for the four lives that Lisa touched after her death. I do admit to being a little nervous with the direction the story seemed to have been taking, but I am glad it did not venture into that particular territory as I think I would have been on the fence about it. I know this sounds a little vague, but you will understand once you read the story.

Dani Atkins really brings to the forefront one of the most selfless acts a person can do upon death and that is organ donation. How many lives are saved each year because of the kindness of others? I don’t think organ donation is something most people think about because it means thinking about your own mortality. I never really thought about organ donation until I went to renew my driver’s license and they asked if I wanted to be a donor. It really made me think of the lives that could be saved after I am gone. This story really hits home and makes you stop and think of the good that you can do for others.

I highly recommend reading Dani Atkin’s newest release, Gone Too Soon. You will be completely drawn in and taken with this tragic yet beautifully written story.
