1600108_10152164384975908_207743490_nMysteriously connected and soon to be forever changed, three women begin a story that will haunt you long after they are gone.

Ever since she was a little girl in California, Livvi Gray has been tormented by a nightmare of an eerily beautiful stranger in a shimmering silver dress. Shortly before Livvi’s thirtieth birthday she will come face to face with this stranger, an encounter that will not only alter Livvi’s future, but also change much of what she thinks she knows about the past.

The Book of Someday tells Livvi’s story in parallel with that of a brilliant Boston photographer named Micah and a young Long Island wife and mother named AnnaLee. Like Livvi, these two women are swiftly moving toward events that will prove to be the ultimate turning points in their lives, the places where devastating secrets will be exposed–secrets about the unexpected ways in which we choose to protect, and betray, the people we love..

This is a very original novel concept developed by author Dixon. The characters were very real, the story was so unbelievable that in this chaotic world I am sure some readers identify and can relate.

There is never a moment of boredom, this dual narrated story follows the lives of three females, that teach us and show us many things. This book is aimed more for a mature adult audience as it as very harlequin-esque scenes. This was a very inspired read, as a young lady I felt empowered by how strong and courageous these characters proved themselves to be.

 There was a wee bit of a paranormal element to it, some scenes were exceptionally eerie and dark, but I thought it would be much different that as described in the book summary. Regardless, that element of the story was wonderful.

This is a book you will read in one sitting, it captivates you from start to finish.

The ending will blow you away. You will feel a storm of emotions all at once. That’s what great writing does, right? Creates catharsis for the reader, so that in itself proves this novel is a success.
