Dreams That Won't Let Go: Book Review

About The Book:

Can family ties bind deep-seated wounds?

Indigo Burns is excited. Her wedding preparations to the man of her dreams are under way, her photography career is a success, and her family seems to be doing better than ever--all except her brother Reuben, who nobody has seen in years. But that's about to change.

When Reuben decides to move back home to Jubilant, Texas, he hopes to find healing with his sisters. But Indigo isn't so sure their relationship can be mended. And when younger sister Yasmin makes a life-altering choice, it seems like only a miracle can put the Burns family back together.

Will they ever be able love unconditionally and release each other to live their dreams?

My Review:

Dreams That Won't let go is the third book in the Jubliant Soul series by Stacy Hawkins and is available as of January 2010 through Revell Books.

Though I have not read the other two books in this series, I do not believe that I was at a disadvantage. This book can very easily be a stand-alone book. Though reading the other books would help the reader understand some of the background of the characters in this third book, it is not necessary.

I felt this book was very well written, and very easy to read. It examines the various dynamics of family life, both good and bad, and how our family experiences help to develop us into who we are, both good and bad. I felt that the author's writing style made it very easy to relate to the characters, and I loved that the author made a point through the storyline, that we are not perfect, no family is, and that through God's Love for us, and our acceptance of that love, families can be reunited and hearts and hurts can be healed.

I very much enjoyed this book, and will be looking to read the other two books in this series as well. I highly recommend this book.

BUY IT: This book can be purchased as of January 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. You can also purchase this book directly through Revell Books.
