Eva Woods's latest novel, The Inbetween Days (released in the UK as The Lives We Touch), centres around a woman in a coma.
The summary says: "Rosie Cooke is "in between". In between consciousness and oblivion. Life and death. And though some say that when you're near death your entire life flashes before your eyes, Rosie can't remember anything at all - not even how she ended up in a coma. At least not at first.
Then something strange starts to happen. Rosie finds herself revisiting scattered moments from her past: a beach vacation, a play rehearsal, the day her brother was born. But why these memories? And what do they mean?
As each piece of the puzzle comes into focus, Rosie struggles to face the picture of her life that forms. But with every look backward comes a glimpse of what might be: A relationship with her sister. The opportunity to pursue her passion. A second chance at love. And Rosie just might discover that she has much to live for."
