The Goodbye Gift

The Goodbye Gift

” The Goodbye Gift is the first novel I’ve written where I didn’t know how it would end. I knew at the outset that one of my characters would be an organ donor but I had to write their stories as if one of their lives wasn’t about to end…”



Three best friends. One tragic accident. One heart.

Lucy Cunliffe is waiting for a heart. Just twenty-four, she’s spent most of her life going in and out of hospital and after numerous operations, there’s nothing more the doctors can do, other than wait for the right donor. Lucy knows that if and when she gets the call, it will be a day of joy and sorrow because to get a new heart, someone else doesn’t need it any longer…

The Goodbye Gift

Julia, Helen and Phoebe are bound by long-standing friendships and mutual support, but each faces her own demons and a tragic accident is about to impact on their lives in a way they could never have foreseen.

As the bonds of friendship are tested, we know one thing: Lucy will get her heart. The question is, who will give the gift of life?
