This is the story of two couples who, by fate and circumstance, find themselves in the same intensive care unit one night. Ally is married to Joe, and one selfless act has led to him lying in a hospital bed. Charlotte is married to David, who also lies in a nearby room. Over a period of twenty-four hours, the two women take a journey into the past, with long-buried insecurities and resentments bubbling to the surface. For David was Ally's first love, and she has always felt that Charlotte was instrumental in their split. As the clock ticks through the long night, and their husbands fight for their lives, will Ally and Charlotte be able to put the past behind them?

As a person who reads many, many books, I am so thrilled when I come across one that I know will change how I think about things – this book, Our Song, did that for me.
It has gone right up to the top ten (possibly 5) books I have ever read. I could write a one word review, and it would be simply ‘WOW’..
But the characters, and the author deserve a little more than that :)
This book grabbed me right from the first page; actually, the first paragraph.
I was so drawn to the characters. I found myself thinking of them when I wasn’t able to read, I stayed up a long time after I had told myself “just one more chapter.”
For me, Dani’s writing style is flawless. Though the ending was predictable from fairly early on in the story, in no way did it detract from the wonderous, emotional, believable storyline.
I can’t decide who my favourite character is from the book, as they all played great roles and were invaluable to the storyline. I did love Max, Jake, Alice the neighbour, and especially the four main charctaers – Ally, Charlotte, David, and Joe.
I will be telling everyone to read this book because it really deserves the recognition and praise.
