Publisher Description

Three best friends. One tragic accident.
A heartbreaking novel about friendship, love and sacrifice from R&J bestseller, Amanda Brooke

Lucy has been desperate for a new heart for as long as she can remember. But getting the call to say a donor has been found will be a bittersweet relief: because for her to live, someone else must die.

Julia, Helen and Phoebe have been fast friends for all their lives, through Helen’s unplanned pregnancy, the sudden death of Phoebe’s mother, and Julia’s desperation to conceive with her much younger husband. Yet a deep friendship can hide many secrets, and as their relationship reaches crisis point, what has long been buried is going to come bubbling to the surface.

With one tragic accident, these four lives will converge and Lucy will get her new heart. But who has made the ultimate sacrifice?

Tissues required!

A great read full of all the requisite qualities a good romance novel needs to engage the reader from start to finish. Enduring friendships & uncompromising love, forgiveness & heartbreak, are all contained within this book, but be warned.....you will need a box of tissues near & handy!

Heart wrenching

This book felt so emotional for me. It really is full of things that happen to people everyday; heart breaking betrayals and sudden losses that shock us all the time
Although I love a happy ending, and this book made me feel sad, it's a great book, I honestly didn't put it down until it was finished. Disappointed it ended!
