About the Book

(from Goodreads)
“I would give anything to take this away from her. I would gladly go back to having the nightmares myself – the very worst ones, the ones that had me waking up screaming in a pool of my own vomit – rather than see Lizzie go through this…”

As a resident at Children’s Hospital, Sara can handle ninety hour workweeks, fighting to save her young patients from deadly childhood diseases. But she’s about to be faced with a challenge that all her training and experience haven’t prepared her for: her four-year-old daughter has inherited her ability to see other people’s dreams…

“Dream Child” is the suspenseful third novel in the “Dreams” series.

My Review

I received a free copy of the ebook for an honest review.

Dream Child is the third book the Dream Series. I thought the first two books, Dream Student and Dream Doctor, were okay but I liked this one quite a bit more. One thing that I didn’t care for in the first two books was Sara’s rambling thoughts, but there wasn’t near as much of that in this book.

In Dream Child, Sara finds out that her 3 (almost 4) year old daughter, Lizzie, has the same gift (curse?) that she does. She and her husband, Brian, work together to help Lizzie deal with her psychic dreams.

I liked Sara more in Dream Child. She has not only matured, but there weren’t any obvious clues that she missed like she did in the previous books.

Brian is the perfect supportive husband and Lizzie is my favorite character. She’s not only adorable but smart. I’ve met a couple of 4 years olds like her and they amazed me!

Dream Child is about family relationships, Sara’s residency, and a mystery that needs to be solved. I’m glad I stuck with this series. It’s getting better and I’m looking forward to reading the next one, Dream Family.
