Many thanks to Victoria Joss and publisher Head of Zeus for my spot on this Blog Tour.
Dani Atkins is a brilliant writer. She broke my heart into a million pieces and joined them together with hope. Every word written in this book was etched in my heart bringing with it emotions which had tears coursing down my cheeks and a smile trying to flutter through amidst them.
2 women stuck in a dilemma which had no solution at least nothing which could be called fair and just. Izzy and Pete, separated parents, had a son Noah. Beth was a widow who had lost her husband and longed to be a mother. Both their lives had intersected 8 years ago by fate and an accident, and the results affected them today. What was justice and would it be served by the same fate?
Having read a book by this author after a long time, I was pulled into the book from the first line, enjoying the scenes as they unfolded in front of me. They were lucid and clear and gave me powerful imagery via my emotions. I was pulled in different directions by both those women as I felt keenly for both. Dani’s writing was superfluous in etching them, carving them out of real life.
The love that was shown kept me anchored firmly into the story. I didn’t realize that time had moved on while I was reading it. Nothing could have ever stopped me from completing the book at one go.
I loved, loved, loved the book with the million pieces of my heart. Ah, a fabulous storyteller was this author who told me the million dreams a mother has for her child.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
All my reviews can be read here
Dani was born and brought up in Cockfosters- a small London suburb at the end of the Piccadilly Tube Line.
When her two children grew up and left home, Dani set about turning this dream into reality and devoted her time to writing. She now lives in a rural Hertfordshire cottage with her husband, a soppy border collie dog and a haughty Siamese cat.
Her first novels FRACTURED (called THEN AND ALWAYS in the US) and THE STORY OF US published in 2014. In January 2016, her third novel, OUR SONG was published.
Beth Brandon always dreamed of owning a florist, but today the bouquets of peonies and bright spring flowers are failing to calm her nerves. Because today, Beth has a life-changing decision to share with her husband.
Izzy Vaughan thought she and her husband would stay together forever, but sometime last year, their love began to fade. They both find such joy in their young son Noah – but is he enough to keep them together?
Eight years ago, something happened to these two women. Something that is about to bring them together in a way no-one thought possible…

Five starer from Shalini. Fantastic review
Aaaaah! I need this in my life! I read Dani Atkins’s first book years ago, and it made such a big impression on me. I haven’t kept up with her since then, and your review makes me realize that I’m missing out. Lovely – thanks!
I have to read more of her books too. She was simply sublime
Fab review! I love Dani Atkins writing but somehow missed that she had a new one coming out so I’m definitely going to buy a copy of this soon. It sounds so good!
