"Suzanne Redfearn's latest is a wonder. A thoughtful exploration of life, death, and the world in between, In an Instant is a powerful and poignant read." --Mary Kubica, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

"In an Instant begins as an action-packed tale of survival that is positively addictive; then it digs deep into an emotional and thought-provoking exploration of our humanity and what it means to make difficult moral choices in the most harrowing of circumstances.

It's a triumph on every level, and I absolutely loved it." --USA Today bestselling author Julianne MacLean

"When a sudden car accident shatters a family, they're left to pick up the pieces while trying to solve the mystery of just what happened that night. Redfearn deftly pivots from character to character in this multiple-points-of-view narrative, unraveling the past and weaving together a new future for the family. In an Instant is sure to please fans of The Lovely Bones and Big Little Lies." --Catherine McKenzie, bestselling author of The Good Liar and Hidden

"Suzanne Redfearn's In an Instant is part ghost story, part love letter to a family in crisis after a devastating accident in the midst of a brutal snowstorm. This cleverly crafted novel chronicles a heartbreaking journey from grief and despair to one of acceptance, forgiveness, and ultimately hope. Through Redfearn's luminous prose, In an Instant succeeds in building an unforgettable portrait of human frailty and strength in the face of unfathomable loss." --Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times bestselling author of The Weight of Silence and Before She Was Found

"In an Instant is a triumph! When tragedy strikes, two families are thrown into chaos as the lines of morality are blurred. Redfearn handles a family's shock and grief with the perfect balance of empathy and hope and will have you contemplating what really lies underneath the shiny veneer of those closest to you. Make In an Instant your first read of 2020." --Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke, bestselling authors of Girls' Night Out

"Breathtaking, compelling, heart stopping, and original. An utter page turner--I couldn't put the book down. I highly recommend this unforgettable story. Kudos to Suzanne Redfearn." --Jane Porter, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

"Told in gripping prose, In an Instant is both an addictive, suspenseful read and a thoughtful exploration of what each of us would do in a time of intense trauma.

"Suzanne Redfearn's latest, In an Instant, is a captivating, heartbreaking, but ultimately uplifting novel about a family's devastating tragedy and its aftermath. Reminiscent of The Lovely Bones, the story is told by sixteen-year-old Finn, who struggles to find closure for herself while watching her loved ones do the same. Redfearn deftly explores those split-second decisions that can alter our destinies and the guilt we hold on to, despite our need to let go. In an Instant reminds us what it is to be human--vulnerable, fallible, and also resilient and triumphant when we face our challenges with unity and love." --Janis Thomas, bestselling author of What Remains True and All That's Left of Me

"In the wake of a tragic car accident, the survivors are forced to make unimaginable choices in desperation to survive, spiraling into a heart-wrenching journey to live with those same choices afterward, forever haunting the ones they love and perceptions of self. Told through the perspective of a teenage girl whose life is cut short--her desperation to be alive and connected to her family is a reminder of how fragile the things we take for granted truly are. Suzanne Redfearn's In an Instant will make you thankful for every breath you take." --Kristin Fields, author of A Lily in the Light
