The Lie, Gold Medal Winner – Fiction 2013 at Illumination Book Awards by Ashley Fontainne and Narrated by Andrea Emmes. This book jumps off the page and comes alive through the performance of Andrea Emmes. The characters all have substance and emotion. I felt the confusion and terror of the unknown. Every twist and turn caught me off guard and yet I never jumped ahead in my mind to the end. Every word was written so well I listened in one sitting.
Karmen Moncrille was raised by her mother after her fathers death in a car crash. She was home schooled and sheltered from the world. She read every author and every type of book. When at 16 she wrote her first book it was a best seller then a Hit Box Office Movie. Her gift for writing made her wealthy and every book was quickly picked up by her fans.
When her dreams started coming to life and causing her mental anguish she runs away to relax in her Kentucky cabin. A spiritual battle ensued that opens Karmen’s unbelieving heart to the truth of Jesus and Gods ultimate plan. A shocking and thrilling ride to the end.
Dream Child by J.J. DiBenedetto and Narrated by Heather Jane Hogan is DiVenedetto’s third book in the Dream Series. At this time the first four book are available on Audible.com as well as a short story that takes place between book 3&4 as Betty and Howard Barnes take a European Vacation.
Dream Child revolves around Sara’s 4 year old daughter who has inherited Sara’s Gift. You learn that as in other books the ability to see others dreams only manifests itself if you meet the person. Keeping a 4 year old from meeting people that she may dream about is just another thing for Sara to think about when raising her daughter.
The audiobook is another excellent listen as Sara meets and begins to see the dreams of relatives and of a Congressman from her district, whom she happened to meet in Washington DC.
If you think you know what a Congressmen is thinking or dreaming about then you may begin to understand how disturbing those dreams could be.
Sara, while completing her residency and raising children at night and trying to save them during the day; will she solve the mystery of her dreams in time. Will she survive the stress. The personnel conflict and mental anguish are apparent and felt in every chapter.
I highly recommend this series for all but mostly for young women who want to do it all. Sara is an excellent roll model for anyone wanting to achieve their DREAMS….
