Douglas Williams lost his wife, Emily nearly eight years ago after the birth of his daughter; seven years ago, his daughter Coll was taken from him because he couldn't afford to raise her. But he promised his one year old daughter that he would find her and that he would set it right again.
When Douglas's old friends Gabe and Leslie Evans move in over the road in the quiet village of Greenfield with their own young daughter Taya, Douglas finds that every time he looks at her, he's reminded of the daughter that was taken from him. Taya's persistence in asking him repeatedly about his dead wife and daughter who was taken brings Douglas back to his old habits of drinking until he can't make it up the stairs. But, it brings more to it, he's dying and he doesn't want help; he doesn't want to live. He whispers in Taya's ear his last request during his final month of life.
"Make it last for me."

I haven't read this book yet but it seems really good! I watched a video on youtube of you being interviewed and you seem like a great author! I am in grade seven and have also recently published a book called You Can Do It and I was wondering if you could possibly read it and tell me what you think, when you type it in, click on the one with the shoes on it and could you maybe comment on it or rate it after? It's not very long! Can't wait to read shattered ones, I'm going to order it soon! My rating is just a guess, but judging by the preview, I think I rated it right!!!
