About the Book:
Award-winning romance writer Dani Atkins returns in this heart-breaking love story, in which a newly widowed father brings up his six-year-old son alone.
He’d have done everything differently if he’d known she’d be gone so soon…
When Lisa married Alex, she gave his life meaning. She was a professional astronomer: a stargazer. And when she gazed at Alex, she saw that behind his tough exterior was a man she could love.
Alex, Lisa and their young son Connor made a happy little universe. But then Lisa dies in a train crash, and their universe is destroyed. Alex is shattered by loss, and overwhelmed by the difficulties of being a single father to a six-year-old boy. How can he and Connor carry on without Lisa lighting up their lives?
Then Alex meets four strangers. Two men and two women, who never met Lisa, but whose lives changed profoundly because she died. As Alex hears their stories, he begins to realise the world may not be as cruel and senseless as it seems. Perhaps, after all, the future is written in the stars…

About the Author:
Dani was born and brought up in Cockfosters- a small London suburb at the end of the Piccadilly Tube Line.
This served her well for commuting into the city, where from the age of 18 she worked in a succession of secretarial positions in companies as diverse as a BMW car dealership to the BBC. Dani spent her two hour commute avidly reading and dreamed that one day she would become an author herself.
When her two children grew up and left home, Dani set about turning this dream into reality and devoted her time to writing. She now lives in a rural Hertfordshire cottage with her husband, a soppy border collie dog and a haughty Siamese cat.
Her first novels FRACTURED (called THEN AND ALWAYS in the US) and THE STORY OF US published in 2014. In January 2016, her third novel, OUR SONG was published.
Lisa, Alex and Connor make a beautiful family. When Lisa gets ill, their world changes. When she passes away, everything Alex and Connor know know about life with her dies too.
Can Alex bring up Connor alone?
Dani Atkins writes truly stand-out, beautiful novels and the pacing is always relaxing and gripping no matter what the subject matter and plots. There are hard choices and life lessons.
I loved Fractured and A Million Dreams, but so far A Sky Full of Stars has to be the most heartbreaking. It’s gripping heart-wrenching and truly unforgettable.
Thanks to Dani Atkins and Aria & Aries for my ARC in exchange for an honest and voluntary review.
