    This was about an unuaual woman, a woman who was living on her own, in a time when it was'nt common to do so, but circumstances had put her in this place. And then one day her life crossed paths with a boy, and changed them both. there are many interesting characters in the town where she lives, and a mystery to solve. There are great obstacles to overcome before the young woman finds her own strength, and thereby, her own real happiness.

    The Good Dream is the 3rd book I have read that is authored &nb

    The Good Dream is the 3rd book I have read that is authored  by Donna VanLiere and I thoroughly enjoyed!  The main character goes through life struggles that we can all relate to in our current day despite the fact the story takes place in the 1950's.  I enjoyed the main character, Ivorie  as she is a strong woman, lives her life as she believes she should live and isn't influenced by others. She is smart, funny, logical, and lives with no regrets. As a strong woman myself, I could relate to the core of this character. A fictional story that will take you through a roller coaster ride of emotions...I loved it!

    I was planning a vacation sailing with my husband for a week and needed a good book to read. So many writers books have become boring and predictable and I wanted a writer who could bring me into the story. Donna VanLiere is a writer whom I have admired for years and I remembered she was coming out with a new book, THE GOOD DREAM! Perfect! I have read all her other books and loved them! We went off sailing and as I settled myself on deck ... I began to read. She has done it again! I absolutely LOVED this book! Such a talent! It is a story that will make you laugh and cry. You know you are reading something very special when a tear slides down your cheek as you are reading!! You will FEEL how the characters feel and it is simply the most heartwarming story! I could not put it down. Thank you Donna for giving us yet another inspiring book....
