The Dream Daughter Book Review + RSVP for Today's Twitter Party With Prizes


MBE partnered with St. Martin's Press & SheSpeaks for this post

What you'll experience when you read the new novel The Dream Daughter (St. Martin's Press, 2018) by New York Times Best Selling Author Diane Chamberlain is a roller coaster time travel journey like none other. 

Get ready for a relatable story about what it means to be a mother and the extremes to which a mom is willing to go for the sake of a child. A tale which has so many ups and downs, twists and sharp turns, you'll be guessing what's going to happen next again and again, through the end of the book. Simply put, The Dream Daughter broadly and seamlessly spans across fiction genres from sci-fi, drama, romance, and adventure, to suspense, mystery, and more. 

Close your eyes and imagine what it would be like to be a desperate Vietnam war widow and expectant first-time mom in 1970 America. A woman who decides to time travel into the future, despite her greatest fears, in search of an advanced yet-to-be-invented medical procedure that's needed to save her unborn baby. 

Upon abruptly landing in the year 2001, you're surrounded by an unfamiliar modern USA, filled with things you've never heard of or seen before. A place in time where laptop computers, cell phones and CNN cable TV and other technological advancements are in common use. Stranger still, General Hospital is still on network television, but there's now a guy named George Bush who is President of the United States. That's just a tiny peek at the literary mind-blowing and wild adventure that awaits you in this book.

No doubt, this title will have particular appeal to Baby Boomers (Chamberlain and I are both members of that club) as well as to Millennials. However, adults (especially mothers) of other generations who are looking for an intriguing new book are going to want to check this out, then sneak some time for yourself to indulge in a really good read. Better yet, this would be great candidate for your book club group's next book since there's so much here to share and you're going to want to talk about it.

The book I read for this review is actually my first-ever Chamberlain novel. I found her writing so excellent, though, I felt compelled to immediately read more of her books to truly immerse my mind in her unique storytelling style. 

In fact, in the last month, I've already completed five of this talented writer's other 25 works which have been translated into 20 languages including The Lies We ToldThe Midwife's ConfessionThe Silent SisterNecessary Lies and Reflection, and I fully intend to read the rest. So I can say with confidence that whether or not you've read any of her earlier books, Chamberlain's writing just keeps getting better and you're not going to want to miss The Dream Daughter.

If you, like me, appreciate great American literature threaded with advanced vocabulary, complex, thoughtful story plots, accurate historical references, deep characterizations, and insights into family relationships look no further. 

You'll find all that and much more in The Dream Daughter by Diane Chamberlain now available from St. Martin's Press  in hardback, soft cover, and as an e-book.

Join me today as we Tweet with author Diane Chamberlain. As if talking with the writer behind The Dream Daughter isn't enough, we're also giving away some awesome prizes during the party hour. See details and RSVP below.
