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.

What did you like best about Gone? What did you like least?
I liked the characters. As a parent its easy to imagine yourself pulled into the world that Charley finds herself in as you want your child to be with you and to be healthy and happy. I liked the journey that the book takes Charley on. There wasn't anything that I dislkied about the book. It has a healthy dose of fun and thought and you can certainly feel the authors passion and emotions in the writing.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Gone?
I think the most memorable thing is the premise of the book. The idea of moving to a different plane of existence with a very interesting concept of the meaning of the after life. It's very good.
What does Nancy Peterson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
The narrator gives the characters and the emotions within the book a great deal of depth.
Do you think Gone needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
I like books that are stand along. Ideas that a re good and unique are often good to leave as one book. Saying that however the world that the author creates is interesting and engaging enough to follow on with outher/follow on books.
Any additional comments?
