A Million Dreams - Dani Atkins

About the book…
'Dani Atkins is the undisputed queen of fiction that packs a huge emotional punch' Heat

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 will visit her husband's grave, and share with him a life-changing decision.

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... 

Thought-provoking, emotional and uplifting, this is a gripping love story for fans of Jojo Moyes and Amanda Prowse.

My thoughts…
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, this is something I am more than happy to do. Huge thanks to Head of Zeus for letting me join the blog tour.

Dani Atkins never fails to deliver so I jumped at the chance to have an early read of A Million Dreams and was totally blown away.  This is a serious, heart string puller of a read, that had me gripped from the very first chapter, I was totally absorbed and lost in the lives of Izzy and Pete and Beth, tragically widowed when she and husband Tim were to have been embarking on the road to parenthood - three strangers thrown together on their rocky road to parenthood.

A Million Dreams is a breath taking, beautiful book with so many strands interwoven and stitched together to form a read that is in equal measures heart warming and heart breaking.  For the most part of reading A Million Dreams I had tears rolling down my face so was very grateful to be reading in the privacy of my caravan and not anywhere public.

Dani Atkins has not shied away from the difficult questions and dilemma's faced by thousands of would be parents - nurture or nature, there is no stronger love than that of a mother and child and parenthood is a tricky road to navigate without the added complications faced by Beth, Izzy and Pete. 

I can't recommend this book highly enough, it's difficult to say too much without 'spoilers' other than this book will break you into a Million Pieces as you walk in their footsteps only to turn the page and lift you back up again. It's emotional, heartfelt and uplifting at the same time and will leave you thinking about the story long after the final page has been turned.  Dani Atkins does not shy away from the difficult subjects in life and always creates characters that are totally relatable and life-like, I felt their pain and joy like close friends as they and I traversed  Million Dreams.  Huge thanks Dani for another exceptional read.
