Don’t Miss This Fabulous New Novel by Diane Chamberlain, Coming 10/2/18!
The Dream Daughter is an extraordinarily well-written time-travel novel. Once I started this book I didn’t want to put it down, not even for a moment. The author pulled me into her story, right from the start. I loved the realistic characters, the intriguing plot, and the flowing dialogue.
Hunter Poole is a physicist. He is from the future, 2018 to be exact, but he won’t be returning to the twenty-first century anytime soon, or ever. And, Hunter is okay with that. He loves the simpler life of the twentieth century. It’s 1970 and Hunter is a contented man. He has his lovely wife, Patti, by his side and their beautiful son John Paul. Hunter will always be grateful to Carly, his sister-in-law, for introducing him to Patti. But, it was time for him, to return the favor, and he was nervous.
Hunter never told Patti or Carly that he was from the future, but he was going to have to confess now. He owed it to Carly. Her unborn daughter wouldn’t live long after birth if she didn’t have a heart procedure soon. The problem was, however, that fetal surgery was unheard of in1970. Hunter was going to have to send Carly into the future. And, unfortunately, she was going to have to do it alone.
Carly would do anything to save her baby. She would never have thought that traveling through time was going to be the easy part of her journey. Unfortunately, she was going to need every bit of courage and strength she could muster up, to weather the challenges ahead.
The Dream Daughter is a fabulous novel. Highly recommended. I loved every page. Five well-deserved stars from this reader.
Thank you, St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
