Publisher's Summary

Three best friends. One tragic accident. A heartbreaking story about friendship, love and sacrifice from R&J best seller 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?

The goodbye gift

Any additional comments?

I got this book because I love Julie Maisy as a narrator. This story was a nice surprise and I really enjoyed it.
You really got to know the characters well and understand what they were going through.
A couple of the characters annoyed me in the book, but that just shows how well written I found the story!
I will try another book by this author!
