While I was Sleeping is the latest novel by author Dani Atkins who also wrote one of my favourite books, Fractured.
28 year old Maddie is excited for her upcoming wedding when the unthinkable happens. A van knocks her down in a horrific accident. She wakes up and believes it’s seven weeks later but the tell tale signs are there and she soon discovers it’s six years and seven weeks later.
Fiancé Ryan visits but something feels wrong. Has he moved on in the intervening years and what does the future hold for Maddie as she struggles through rehab and physio to return to a normal life?
It’s an emotionally charged tale with an ending you won’t see coming and is an unusual story that depicts life after a moment in time that changes everything. Written in an easy style and with likeable characters, it’s a great read, which will be available on 26th July just in time for the summer holidays.
I loved it and the good news is that if you like this one as much as I did and you’ve not read Dani’s books before there are several others you’ll be able to catch up with and enjoy, written in the same style.
Thanks to NetGalley and Simon & Schuster for the advance copy. It’s four stars from me.
