They say the third time’s the charm, and this definitely holds true for the third installment of J.J. DiBenedetto’s Dream series. Following Sara Alderson as she now has not one, but three small children and is working as a Resident for Children’s Hospital. We once again get a chance to feel as if we know Sara in our own lives.
In this 3rd book of the series, and my favorite thus far, we are introduced to Lizzie, Sara and Brian’s almost 4 year old daughter. Lizzie is bright beyond her age, beautiful just like both of her parents, and now as Sara has to find out, Lizzie has more in common with her than she could have ever known. Lizzie dreams just like Sara does! How in the world will Sara and Brian handle their young daughter having dreams as Sara has had for years?
So, as in the previous Dream series books, we will be fascinated as now, not only Sara, but her daughter as well, are having dreams that will lead them into a possibly dangerous mystery that only she and those closest to her can solve. Will Lizzie be able to keep her dreams a secret from others? And will the family as a whole, be in danger because of the dreams?
It’s enlightening to find a book series which makes you feel so connected to the characters. J.J. DiBenedetto is outstanding with bringing his characters to life through the pages. They become like part of our own extended family. Lizzie is by far one of the most outspoken and adorable characters that we have met so far, and I look forward to seeing more of her as the series continues.
We have to wonder after reading this book, who else in Sara’s family will be affected by the powerful dreams that are being shared between mother, and now daughter, and how in the world will those closest to Sara handle what is happening? I anxiously await reading the 4th book in the Dream series now, as I am thoroughly enchanted with Sara, her beautiful family and the love they share, and the mystery that surrounds them throughout the years.
