for the main character a better title would have been something about a nightmare. This is so because trying times are all Lanie Freeman has ever known. At the age of 14 she lost her mother and, now, three years later during the aftereffects of the stock crash of 1929, she finds herself rearing her four younger siblings after her father becomes incarcerated. The only helper she has in her day-to-day life is a distant relative, Aunt Kezia. As a pretty 17-year-old single girl, Lanie captures the attention of young Rodger Langley, yet she harbors feelings for the town doctor, Owen Merritt. One small problem, however, is that Dr. Merritt is already engaged to Langley’s sister. On top of everything else, the Freemans are housing a young woman, Cass, who has a mysterious past no one has been able to unravel as yet. But things are about to see major changes because a new reverend is coming to town, and he intends to invest himself (and God) in everyone’s life.
The author uses many different subplots to formulate the overarching narrative of this saga. His events take twist and turns, always keeping the reader entertained. The characters are realistic, with struggles and flaws that encourage readers to explore aspects of their own Christian behavior.
The only points I would make readers aware of would be that the author espouses Calvinistic theology, and that there are certain sexual innuendos not appropriate for younger readers. Also, although abortion was not legalized until 1973 in the United States, part of this story focuses on the underground abortion practices of 1931.
The Dream is a heartwarming story about real people doing their best to survive during the era of The Depression. It’s a mature story that is frank, believable, and emotionally challenging. – Khrista Beckmann, Christian Book Previews.com
