The Dream takes up the story of Lek, her family and friends from two years further down the line.
In the past, it has always been Lek who issued the ultimata, but the story opens with her having received one and it throws her.
She is offered the fulfilment of her oldest dream, but can she take it?
The fulfilment of any dream requires sacrifices, but is Lek prepared to make them now that her goal is within her grasp?
It is a tough one, which means a hard time for her, although her family and friends are behind her as always.
Which way will she go?
The instinct to follow her dream and the inertia of a comfortable life in the village as she gets older vie for supremacy in her mind.
As is usual in this series, nothing is hidden from the reader, we are privy to all of Lek's agonizing thoughts.

About the Author
Author Owen Jones, from Barry, South Wales, came to writing novels relatively recently, although he has been writing all his adult life. He has lived and worked in several countries and travelled in many, many more. He speaks, or has spoken, seven languages fluently and is currently learning Thai, since he lives in Thailand with his Thai wife of ten years. "It has never taken me long to learn a language," he says, "but Thai bears no relationship to any other language I have ever studied before." When asked about his style of writing, he said, "I'm a Celt, and we are Romantic. I believe in reincarnation and lots more besides in that vein. Those beliefs, like 'Do unto another...', and 'What goes round comes around', Fate and Karma are central to my life, so they are reflected in my work'. His first novel, 'Daddy's Hobby' from the series 'Behind The Smile: The Story of Lek, a Bar Girl in Pattaya' has been followed by four sequels, but his largest collection is 'The Megan Series', eighteen novellas on the psychic development of a young teenage girl, the subtitle of which, 'A Spirit Guide, A Ghost Tiger and One Scary Mother!' sums them up nicely. As Owen puts it: 'Born in the Land of Song, living in the Land of Smiles'.
