Good Story/Tough Issues -- Out of a Dream

Through a facebook connection, Rosemary Hines recently contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reading and reviewing Out of a Dream.  I have to admit that I was just a little hesitant when I realized that it dealt with New Age beliefs, a topic I'm not particularly interested in and even a little uncomfortable reading about.

But what I found was a well-written story of one woman's journey to truth -- a journey that takes her through false answers to her questions along the way.  Michelle and her family have some major problems to deal with and don't have the faith they really need to find the solutions.  But God places the right people in their lives to help them navigate through the darkness and find the light they need.

Rosemary writes from the heart as she deals with some very tough issues in this story, many of which she knows from first-hand experience.  Her authenticity shows through in her well-developed characters and their real-life challenges.

Thanks to Rosemary for providing me a copy of her ebook for review.  I look forward to continuing Michelle's story through the other two books in this Sandy Cove Series.

About the Story
Set in the fictional coastal community of Sandy Cove, Oregon, Out of a Dream tells the story of a troubled young newlywed, Michelle Baron. Displaced from her hometown in Southern California, she begins having a series of nightmares. Her quest to understand these dreams leads her to the New World bookstore where she begins a spiritual journey that will challenge her Christian heritage as well as her marriage. 

Torn between her love for her husband and the intrigue she finds in her New Age alliances, Michelle wrestles with spiritual forces she cannot see.  A call from home and the family trauma that ensues cause her to confront the battle that is raging for her soul and decide the course of her future.
