Publisher's Summary

After Charley dies in her office chair, how is it that she finds herself propelled into the mysterious world of Avalon?
Upon encountering an essence, which insists is her daughter, the one she knows she left behind, insanity battles with fear inside her mind.
The further she delves, the more puzzling things appear, especially after she rises into the Orb of Caprice - a realm of fairies, talking flowers and goblins; and something else, something that lurks in the shadows ready to swallow her whole.
Can she realize in time what it is she must do; or has she left it too late?

Very thought provoking

I don't read synopsis very often, I like to go in with a blank slate. Since the tittle was Gone I read a few lines of the synopsis and once I seen that "Charley dies" I was worried the book would be depressing. I was pleasantly surprised once I started reading, it was not depressing but more thought provoking. That is of course after you go on a journey fantasy ride to the other side to a place called Avalon. Once in Avalon Charley is reunited with her daughter Jenny. Jenny lives in Avalon but her body lives on earth. This has brought on a lot of guilt to Charley. She feels guilt for letting others raise her after her daughter after her daughter got hurt. She visits Jenny but with time I take it she slowly stops. It brings on guilt to Charley. So when she meets her daughter in Avalon she's worried her daughter will know her thoughts but she's happy to see her. Of course in Avalon her daughter is healthy and so is Charley. We find out at the end that the story is inspired by true events in the authors life which is heartbreaking.
I enjoyed the book and thought is was very thought provoking. Most importantly, I hope the author got through her grief writing her story and showed such amazing strength sharing her story with us. To the author, I truly believe love can never be broken, through sickness or in death.
