Need to Read #32 (BONUS!): Book of Dreams
Title: Book of Dreams
Author: Davis Bunn
Book blurb: For Dr. Elena Burroughs, life is divided into two chapters—before and after the death of her husband. Today marks the point that her span of being a wife is equal to her span of being a widow. Even her success as a psychologist and her worldwide acclaim for a book on the interpretation of dreams is dimmed by an unspoken If only.
Then a new patient arrives, one so private only her first name is given. Impeccably dressed and escorted by two bodyguards, Sandra recounts a frightening series of recurrent nightmares. Elena agrees to consider her case more carefully, convinced that something ominous may be at work here. Elena's interpretation of her dreams confirms that, indeed, the new patient and her family confront a powerful global network of dangerous forces.
As the story unfolds, they face a key question of the Christian life: How do you understand and fulfill the will of God?
Quick endorsement: I’ve read this book twice. The first time, I read it and really enjoyed it, giving it a fairly high rating. The second time, I almost had to force myself to start it…only to find it really was as good a book as I had rated it! All that to say – this is a good book. The cover may not look it, the back cover may not read like it is…but give it a try.
