Million-copy bestselling author Dani Atkins returns in this heartbreaking love story, in which a newly widowed father brings up his six-year-old child alone.
I'd have done everything differently if I had known she'd be gone so soon... 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 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 of her. As Alex hears their stories, he 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 and silver linings in even our most heartbreaking moments...
A gripping, powerful and emotional page-turner that fans of Jodi Picoult, Diane Chamberlain and Kate Hewitt will find completely unputdownable.
