    Such an emotional story!

    ARC - I voluntarily offered to review this book with no obligations and my opinions are honest! Shay was just trying to help her brother, and for that she went to prison. Now that she is out, she does not know what she will do. Pastor Drew gave Shay a chance. It seems that Shay was in the right track. She was starting to feel like she belonged again. Then, everything came crashing down. Accused of the crime as before, Shay still will not tell the true. She went to prison to protect a loved one. Will she do the same thing again? This was some a moving story. I was rooting for Shay from beginning to the end of the book. She deserved a HEA. Love the book! + Love the ending!

    Wonderful

    This is a beautifully told story of mistakes, loss, redemption, healing, faith and love. It's a Debbie Macomber book so we know the writing and characters are top notch but the emotions this story evoke are definitely kicked up a notch. Shay Benson has made mistakes and paid the price in prison. On the day of her release with no were to go she stumbles into a little church. This one act will have a huge impact on her life. Pastor Drew Douglas has been going through the motions of living since the death of his wife. His two children need him to be better and he wants to be better but moving forward is hard. Then a woman enters his church who while dealing with her own life issues shows him the way to healing and moving forward. This story is impactful and simply not to be missed!

    A Christian novel by Debbie Macomber!

    Any Dream Will Do is the latest novel by Debbie Macomber. Shay Benson is trying to turn her life around. She is clean (no drugs), working as a teller at a local bank, and taking accounting classes. Then Caden, her brother (and only family), shows up needing help. Caden states he needs $5,000 right away or he will be killed. Promises to get the money back to her within days if she will obtain it from the bank (not through legal means). Caden gets the money and disappears. Shay is sentenced to three years. Three years later, a bus drops Shay off in front of Seattle Calvary. She walks inside and feels a sense of peace. Pastor Drew Douglas has been having a crisis of faith since the loss of his wife three years prior. It has been a struggle managing his children and his flock. Drew is in the church when he hears a noise and encounters Shay Benson. Shay needs assistance (a new start, a place to live), and Drew takes her to Hope Center. Drew keeps track of Shay’s progress in the year long program and they develop a friendship. As time passes, Shay gets to know Drew’s children, finds a job, a place to live, and a church family. Life is good for Shay and romance is blossoming, but then her past comes back to haunt her. Shay’s dreams for her future are threatened. Shay will need to stay strong and hold onto her faith to get through this trial. Will Shay and Drew get their happily ever after? Any Dream Will Do is nicely written, has a good steady pace, and is set Seattle, Washington (I have always wanted to go there). This book is different from Debbie Macomber’s other novels. She always writes clean, wholesome books, but Any Dream Will Do has a Christian theme. The values of faith, trust, hope, second chances, redemption and love are prevalent throughout the story. Shay is given a second chance, but no one ever said it would be easy (life is full of struggles/obstacles to happiness). Life is fraught with hills and valleys (shadow and light). We get to see Shay and Drew go through good times and bad. I am rating Any Dream Will Do 4 out of 5 stars. The romance takes a backseat in this novel. It places out softly and slowly which I liked. Any Dream Will Do is an uplifting and inspiring novel. The story touches on the plight of the homeless, how people struggle with addiction, and dealing with prejudice (assuming that Shay is bad because she was in prison). Any Dream Will Do does have the expected ending, but it is touching. Any Dream Will Do is a good novel to enjoy on a Saturday afternoon while lying about in a hammock with a cool drink nearby.

    a sweet clean read

    Great story about Love, family, faith, and second chances. Drew and Shay fall for each other without even realizing it. Their courtship does not come with out challenges, and it was what really made the story believable and great! As usual, Debbie Macomber does not disappoint!

    Any Dream Will Do

    This book is a true to life story that once you fix one thing another problem lands in your lap! This will be in my favorite books from Debbie! This is a heartbreaker. Drew is a Pastor with two children, Mark and Sarah. Shay has been in prison for her brother. Major Spoiler! He helps her to get in a homeless project. She has worked to get her own renter. Shay gets work in a small cafe where she finds Richard and Chuck sitting by the cafe. She buys coffee for them. Spoiler. Shay's ex-lover gets out of prison in a wrong release! She is battered. Drew is falling for her. She is also falling. She counts the church money and some is gone. She is tossed out. There are so many troubles with everyone here. Debbie has a really good read here. You must check this book out to read to the end! Debbie writes the best story lines! I hope you won't let this story get away!I volunteered to read and review this book.
