Book Review – A Million Dreams by Dani Atkins @bookouture #BookReview #BooksOnTour #contemporary

Many thanks to publisher Bookouture 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 the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

The lump in my throat dissolves into tears. “They’re going to take Noah away, Pete.”
“No judge will ever rule that a child should be taken away from his parents.” My husband’s voice is defiant.
“Even if it turns out we’re not his parents?”

Izzy’s eight-year-old son Noah is her whole life. With his long eyelashes, mischievous grin and boundless energy, he’s got her husband Pete’s sunny outlook and Izzy’s curious mind. When they receive a surprise phone call from the fertility center that helped them have Noah, it’s surely nothing to worry about.

But what they learn from that call sends their dreams for their son crashing down around them. Eight years ago, someone made a terrible mistake at the center, and there’s a possibility that precious Noah isn’t actually their child.

Izzy and Pete know that they will fight to keep their beautiful boy at any cost… but if Noah’s parents are out there somewhere, is it right to keep them from their son? When a shocking diagnosis brings things to a head, Izzy must decide what’s right for Noah, even if it means sacrificing the person she loves most in the world…

  1. I rarely cry while reading books, but I’m afraid if I read this one, I’ll turn into a sobbing mess. Wonderful review as always, Shalini! It sounds heart-wrenching.
    On a different note, I am thinking of you and your family today, and sincerely hope your mother is doing better. She is in our prayers. XXXOOO 🙂 🙂
