*I was gifted a copy of GONE in exchange for an honest review.*

Wow, this was one of the most powerful books I've read in a long time. I'm usually more into thrillers and horrors with monsters under the bed. GONE by Julie Elizabeth Powell gave me a different kind of emotional rush. It made me look at my life and the people I've met. I realized I've learned from the ones who stayed as well as the ones who left.

Avalon has a touch of Oz and a bit of Wonderland. But instead of a young girl learning lessons through an adventure, it's a woman who has already lived a full and complicated journey. There is a reason people come into your life, just like there is a reason why you are here on this earth. Julie Powell's world of Avalon is a masterpiece filled with lessons, faith, struggles, victories and hope.

I cannot recommend this book enough. It's a deep look into our world, into the dream world, into the afterworld. I absolutely loved it. A must read, whether you have children (I don't) or not, you will learn something from this author who may have really experienced the amazing world of Avalon. I for one am definitely a believer. Are you?

Okay, this was hands down one of the most powerful stories I've ever read and that's saying a LOT. I've got to hand it to you, Julie, you brought out the emotion in this. To understand what's going on when you're reading "Gone", you must first slow down a little bit to help you absorb more of the storyline. I was so very impressed. There were a few places that I had to reread but frankly, I didn't mind it because it gave me the chance to better understand what it was I was reading.

"Gone" is the story of one woman's struggle to understand and learn what it is to forgive herself. She's bound and determined to be angry at herself and the world in general for something that's completely beyond anyone's control. This is understandable because it's easier to be angry than it is to forgive, even if it's a person's inner struggle. Charley struggles with blaming herself and having feelings that are perfectly natural. She's racked by guilt and doesn't want to be honest with herself or anyone else because she'd rather stuff her feelings inside and refuse to acknowledge them.

Then, she's catapulted to Avalon and has to confront herself and her past in order to face the future. This is where it gets a little crazy because she goes on a quest she doesn't understand and has no idea that ultimately, she's learning a lesson. To tell any more of this would require spoilers and that, my friends I won't do. Read "Gone" yourself to find out more.

This is the point where I get to give a star rating and even though I don't believe in star ratings, I'm happy to say that this is one of the few books I get to give a five star. Julie Elizabeth Powell has written with stunning aplomb and related Charley, the main character to anyone else in the world to a stunning degree.

I enjoyed this book. It is a wonderful story which kept me interested from the beginning right through to the last page. It is based on a true event in the author's life which inspired the tale. 'Gone' is a fantasy story which takes the reader to a strange land called 'Avalon' where there are goblins, talking flowers, eerie ghouls, dangers, wonders and more. By the end you are left wondering whether Avalon is a real place, and kind of hoping that it is! The author has done a great job telling her tale. Charley, the main character, has a brain-damaged daughter, and she has lived with the guilt of giving her daughter away to be looked after by someone else. She no longer recognises her daughter whenever she visits, and has in fact stopped visiting her very often. One day Charley has a heart attack and ends up in a place called Avalon, there she meets her daughter and the story begins. 'Gone' uses a fantasy tale to tell a very important story about how our actions and choices in life affect other people. I would highly recommend 'Gone' to anyone who loves a good book.

Overall Feedback: This story will pull at every drop of emotion you have in your soul. I was pulled in from the beginning and never wanted to stop. At times I was sad for the character and at times elated for her. The writing is exceedingly well done and you can tell the author allowed her true feelings about her life flow through her an into her characters. This is a must read.

Point of View: You are reading from the point of view of Charley as she dies and moves on.

Voice: The author has released quite a bit of emotion writing this one and you can tell.

Character Development: Intriguing to say the least and emotionally binding to say the most. You will have a deep personal relationship with the characters of this one.

Plot: One can only hope and pray that this is the way it does go after-life.

Dialogue: The dialogue was very fluid and moving.

Pacing: Started slow but quickly shifts gears.

Setting: I want to visit this land. The great thing about writing about the after-life is that your imagination is the designer.

Continuity: Not one single place out of order. If you are looking for an issue here your heart is missing.
