Dani Atkins Reveals New Book – A Sky Full Of Stars

A Sky Full Of StarsDani Atkins has revealed the name and cover of her new book for 2021 called ‘A Sky Full Of Stars’.

What the back cover says –

He’d have done everything differently, if he’d known. He’d have held her tighter, kissed her longer. He’d have refused to let her go.

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 universe is destroyed. Alex is shattered by loss, and overwhelmed by the difficulties of being a single father to a six-year-old boy. How can he and Connor carry on without Lisa lighting up their lives?

Then Alex meets four strangers. Two men and two women, who never met Lisa, but whose lives changed profoundly because she died. As Alex hears their stories, he begins to realise the world may not be as cruel and senseless as it seems. Perhaps, after all, the future is written in the stars…

Each an absolutely stunning synopsis and stunning cover, ‘A Sky Full Of Stars’ sounds like another emotional rollercoaster from Dani that will have you reaching for the tissues.

You can pre-order ‘A Sky Full Of Stars’ from Amazon and will be available to buy from good bookshops from 4th February 2021.

While I Was Sleeping By Dani Atkins

While I Was Sleeping‘While I Was Sleeping’ is the latest heartbreaking book by Dani Atkins.

What if someone else was living your happy ever after?
When Maddie wakes up in a hospital bed, she can’t remember anything about what happened to her or what has changed.
She just remembers she was about to be married and had everything to look forward to.
But it seems life has become a lot more complicated while she has been asleep.

This book was released mid 2018, but I ended up leaving it until December until I read this tearjerker and I can wholeheartedly understand why a lot of people had this book as one of their favourite reads of 2018.

It’s powerful and emotional from the very beginning and really pulls the reader in. The story is seen through the narrative of two women Maddie and Chloe.

The story starts just as Maddie is preparing to pay her bills for her wedding. She’s excited that she’s about to marry the love of her life, as well as carrying their first baby. But, fate is against the young couple, as Maddie is struck by a car leaving her in a coma. When Maddie eventually wakes from her coma, her life is far from she ever imagined. Six years later, she wakes up and Ryan is married to another woman.

Heartbroken that her happily ever after didn’t come to life, Maddie has to adjust to a new life and heal after being in a coma for so long.

Chloe, is Ryan’s wife and for years has felt that she has lived in Maddie’s shadow and worries now that Maddie is out from the coma, that Ryan’s old feelings will return.

Dual narratives to the story give a lovely insight to the characters, as both women struggle with the strange situation and learn to adapt as well as realise that neither of them is the enemy and begin to form a tentative friendship. It’s difficult to go into too much detail with this book as you could easily reveal a spoiler.

A tearjerker from the first page, this story is beautifully written and is an emotional tale that does make for heart-breaking and bittersweet reading. Tender and warm from the start, ‘While I Was Sleeping’, is a story of new beginnings, love and friendship that should come with an emotional warning!

You can buy While I Was Sleeping from Amazon and is available to buy from good bookshops.

Our Song By Dani Atkins

Our Song‘Our Song’ is by Dani Atkins.

This is the story of Ally and Charlotte, whose paths have intersected over the years though they’ve never really been close friends. Charlotte married Ally’s ex and first true love, David. Fate is about to bring them together one last, dramatic time and change their lives forever.

Dani Atkins is one of those authors, whose books pull you in and consume you, the first book I read by her was ‘Fractured’ and this book broke my heart and so when I started reading ‘Our Song’ I mentally prepared myself for heartbreak and to be honest, nothing could prepare me for the pain that this song inflicted on me.

The story is seen through the narrative of Ally and Charlotte, who unfortunately meet one night when both their husbands are brought into hospital. The two women know each other from their university years, when Ally dated Charlotte’s husband David. Ally and David met at university, he wooed her and they fell madly in love, they thought their love was forever but life and Charlotte got in the way.

The story is written past and present tenses and is seen from the perspective of both women as they deal with the upset and worry for their husbands. Ally’s husband, Joe was injured after heroically rescuing a little boy and his dog and was left with hypothermia. Meanwhile, Charlotte’s husband, David has developed a virus in his heart and is in need for a heart transplant.

As the story moves on, flashing from past to present, we meet two women who were initially arch enemies and hate the sight of one another become companions and offer support to each other forming an unlikely bond during the hard time.

The two leading ladies are a wonderful contrast to each other. Ally has a sweet, gentle nature underneath her tough exterior whereas Charlotte has a bit of an ice maiden vibe about her but she’s really a kind soul, who’s always felt insecure and inferior to Ally, who was David’s first love.

Spanning over a number of years, this book is cleverly written with intersecting paths and long lost characters meeting up along the way. Emotionally charged with strong and relatable characters, the story is about the fragility of life, friendship and addresses the issue of revisiting old ghosts and lost love.

A tear jerker of a novel that will break the hardest of hearts, ‘Our Song’ is a beautifully written and intelligent story that left me in a sobbing mess.

You can buy Our Song from Amazon and is available to buy from good bookshops.
