My Dream Of You tells the story of Betty's life - from her teenage years to her mature years. The story begins with Betty as an old woman, thinking about her past. Then it transports us to when Betty was a teenager living in the English countryside. We learn about her cruel mother and her cousin & best friend, Maggie. The story focuses on spending time at the Fair with Maggie and meeting Joe. We learn about their relationship and how they fell in love so quickly and yet so deeply. Then we see how Betty is treated because of the consequences of one afternoon with the boy she loves.
I fell in love with the character of Betty - she was so young and she had to deal with an immense amount of cruelty by her mother and by society. She made some bad choices but the consequences of her choices definitely were harsher than she deserved. Yet through it all, she remained strong-willed and resilient.
I wish that the story had given us a little bit more information about the middle part of her life - it jumped from her meeting Albie after running away to her living life as a widow. I would have liked to know a little bit more about her life with Albie.
This book is very emotional and I found myself crying and hoping for a happy ending for Betty. I won't give away any spoilers (which is hard) but I can say that Betty was happy in the end and she resolved a lot of her worries and regrets.
If you are looking for a story about young love and undying love, then this book is perfect.
