    The Dream Daughter

    The Dream Daughter by Diane Chamberlain is a little different from Ms Chamberlain's usual stories. What remains the same are the excellent characters we grow to love and hate to part with at the end of the book. The Dream Daughter is difficult to put down and there may be a few tears along the way. I was given an early copy to review.

    Enthralling, memorable, and heart-wrenching!

    The Dream Daughter is a unique, moving, time-slip novel that takes you into the life of Caroline Sears as she embarks on a perilous journey to save and protect her unborn child. The writing is eloquent and sophisticated. The characters are genuine, compassionate, and courageous. And the captivating, time-travel plot sweeps you away into an intricately woven tale about life, loss, family, determination, hope, solace, sacrifice, remarkable medical and scientific advances, and a little magic. The Dream Daughter is ultimately a mesmerizing, creative, well-written story that may be a little different than Chamberlain’s previous novels, but is nevertheless an emotional, satisfying, page-turner of a tale that reminds us that a mother’s love is all-encompassing, selfless, powerful, and everlasting.

    great read

    There are so many things I really enjoyed about this book. Hunter meeting Carly and becoming part of her life. The time travel aspect and how and why it's introduced. Patti's reaction when she finds out what happened. The desperation and determination of a mother. Well, I can't possibly ignore Myra, focused on the science of it all. This author does well with filling in the times and the differences. how she stood out no matter how quiet. The problems and challenges. The sacrifice. This author makes sure we feel it all especially the loneliness yet the hopefulness Carly experienced. It's a great story which is well written and a standalone, from an author that is new to me and one I will enjoy again. The imagery and points of references was brilliantly done and kept the story interesting and engaging.

    Stunning!

    I can only say Wow! Just Wow! Once in a while there's a book that comes along that will stay with you for a long time, this is one of them for me. The plot is superb, the writing is stellar and the characters are front and center in the pages. Neatly woven and I'm going to blather about how great this book is.. so forgive me. I'll say straight up that this story does involve time travel but please don't be put off by that, it's a vehicle for the plot. Oh how I loved Hunter and his brilliance. Caroline/Carly and her character and how brave she was. How much she went through and how the plot, that begins during the Vietnam war resonated with me. It's the 60's. There are no cell phones, computers or technology as we know it today. The anti-war sentiment is strong and the protests are only increasing across the country, along with racial unrest. Hunter is Caroline's brother in law, he runs a tech business in the triangle (North Carolina). She lives with her sister and brother in law in their family home, newly married her husband Tom is in Vietnam. He didn't come home. She never got the chance to tell him she's pregnant. When she finds out her unborn child has a fatal heart defect, Hunter gives her an option. One that not even his wife knows. Carly is too frightened at first but then decides to take any chance she can to save her child. And so the story begins. I don't want to reveal too much more of the book because I feel like it's one that needs to be read with relish. So well done and deserves more than 5 stars. You'll never want it to end.
