Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners where you simply show off a book from your TBR you are excited about reading.

The book I’m showing off this week is…


Diane Chamberlain is one of my favorite North Carolina authors. She has a gift for storytelling, and no matter the topic (and she’s chosen some interesting, thought-provoking topics in the past), I sink right into her settings as if I am living among the characters. The Dream Daughter is a different sort of book for her, as I believe there is a time travel element that bends genre lines. Her last effort, The Stolen Marriage, was a five-star read for me. My review on Goodreads. Needless to say, I cannot wait to read The Dream Daughter!

Synopsis from Goodreads:

From bestselling author Diane Chamberlain comes an irresistible new novel.

When Caroline Sears receives the news that her unborn baby girl has a heart defect, she is devastated. It is 1970 and there seems to be little that can be done. But her brother-in-law, a physicist, tells her that perhaps there is. Hunter appeared in their lives just a few years before—and his appearance was as mysterious as his past. With no family, no friends, and a background shrouded in secrets, Hunter embraced the Sears family and never looked back.

Now, Hunter is telling her that something can be done about her baby’s heart. Something that will shatter every preconceived notion that Caroline has. Something that will require a kind of strength and courage that Caroline never knew existed. Something that will mean a mind-bending leap of faith on Caroline’s part.

And all for the love of her unborn child.

A rich, genre-spanning, breathtaking novel about one mother’s quest to save her child, unite her family, and believe in the unbelievable. Diane Chamberlain pushes the boundaries of faith and science to deliver a novel that you will never forget.
