Review: The Dream Daughter

The Dream Daughter The Dream Daughter by Diane Chamberlain
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Caroline (Carly) Sears had been shrouded in grief for the past year, and discovering she was pregnant was a bittersweet moment. When she was just over twenty weeks along it was discovered her unborn baby had a terrifying heart problem and without intervention, she would die upon birth. But it was 1970 and there was absolutely nothing that could be done. Medical science just wasn’t advanced enough to save her baby. Carly was devastated.

Living with her sister Patti, brother-in-law Hunter and their little boy, John Paul, Carly took to walking the shores of the ocean by their cottage. She had no idea what she would do – except go ahead with her pregnancy on the slim chance that the doctors were wrong. It was when Hunter took her aside one day and told her there was something that could be done for her baby; that she just had to trust him and be strong, take her life and the life of her yet-to-be-born baby in her hands and have faith, that Carly felt a sliver of hope.

But could she do it? She knew she would do anything in her power for the health of her child…

Wow! Absolutely brilliant! The Dream Daughter has a most intriguing plot which captivated me from the start and I had trouble putting it down. Author Diane Chamberlain has hit the jackpot with this one in my opinion. Heart wrenching, emotional and breathtaking, The Dream Daughter makes the unbelievable – believable, and the impossible – possible. One that will stay with me for a very long time! Highly recommended.

Love this story. Kept me reading for the first time in ages.
