If I Should Lose You is a beautifully written, moving story dealing with the difficult subject of organ donation. Camille is a nurse who helps families of donors through the process, while her own daughter is battling a life threatening illness (requiring a liver transplant).

This is a multi-layered story that also explores the relationship Camillie's parents shared. Although both tragically died young,through the reading of her mother's diaries, Camille comes to learn more about them - yet much of the information imparted is shocking and not easy to deal with. Adding to this stress, Camille's marriage is in difficulty, a casualty of the many balls she has to juggle.

Easy to read but not an easy read, If I Should Lose You was a book that I simply couldn't put down - each sentence pulling me further into the storyline and ultimately leaving an impression on me as a reader.
