From the Publisher

In the beginning there was a general story outline for A Dream Across Time but a lead character was needed who had characteristics we could admire. We wanted a woman who was gutsy, independent, committed, loving, creative, intelligent, and dedicated. Totally unacceptable was a woman who was a victim, weak willed, indecisive, and a poor communicator. How often have all of us suffered through books where, if the characters talked to each other, the story would have been over in ten pages? The woman who became Jamie had to be a modern woman with real strengths. Our setting and the story seemed to work better if she was married but, as a person living in the real world, Jamie needed to have a less than stellar marriage. When we sent early drafts out we found a surprising number of people who thought Jamie should have immediately dumped her husband, Paul. As psychotherapists and experts on stepfamilies, we wondered if these people who were so quick to bail out had ever made a go of a marriage. One of the objects of marriage is to try to grow together and it can be uneven. Jamie is not a quitter and marriages need to be given a chance. Maybe a new start for the marriage WAS indicated. Did she make an error with Paul in marrying him? Perhaps. We can go to pop psychology and speculate about how marriage to him was "just what she needed". That it was "perfect", etc. Baloney. Human beings are programmed to get married and have children. As much as we may love the characters on Sex and the City, we do not aspire to their lives. We aspire to what they aspire to. It’s a fundamental goal to want marriage and family. We can speculate about how Jamie might have been neurotically playing out deficiencies or pathology in her family of origin. Dredge up the collected works of Sigmund Freud and get out the fluffy duster. Now, let’s see. On second thought, forget it. Maybe that would be pointless. Not just because Jamie is a fictional character but also because people make honest efforts which sometimes don’t work out. Maybe Jamie married too soon after her father’s death and maybe Paul looked like a good bet. He might have grown up. Grown with her. We get married with high hopes and for half of us it ends in divorce. Move on. Now we really get to the heart of the issue. What did Jamie do? Her husband had turned out to be a philanderer who was working hard on a case of alcoholism. When that was fully dawning on her, Jamie had a choice to make. She could go back to the States and "safety" or stay in an alien culture and take the "risk". She made a rational decision. In the States Jamie had only "safety" and a familiar environment. On St. Lucia she had found a beautiful island, lovely people, a job she might not have found in the States, and she had such a good friend in Barbara. She also had to decide about a relationship. Her husband had turned out to be a "rat". Should she take a chance on another relationship, another man? Should she dream and go after the dream? As you can see in the story, life was hitting Jamie hard. Jamie was determined not to turn tail and leave. She picked herself up, dusted herself off and started all over again as the song says. We understand that sooner or later death will come knocking at our door. But what about when life is at the door? Do we pretend not to be at home? How did Jamie come to this position of being so willing to confront life as it came? Life came to the door, she answered and she was dealt a hand full of dreams. A hand she took willingly, with commitment. Did her mother do a really good job of instilling confidence in her daughter? Let’s hear it for her mother! But then did Paul’s alcoholic mother sow the seeds of his problems? Is she responsible, in the end, for how his life turned out? Oops! Was that "let’s blame it on Mom"? Parents get a lot of undue blame AND undue credit. We’d like to take credit for the accomplishments of our children but before we get too puffed up with their achievements or too guilty about their failures, it requires a close look at the record. Some really rotten kids come from great families and some great kids come from rotten families. Parents have an influence but kids have choices. And this is who Jamie is. She has beauty, brains and talent. Squandering all those gifts is one option. She chose to make the most of them as she faced loss and adversity. For Jamie, the book shows some possible answers to the questions, " Where will you be if you dream? Who will you be if you dream?" What will be true for you if you dream?

4.0 out of 5 stars Caribbean Mystique Aplenty February 11, 2004
Format:Paperback
I am not ordinarily a reader of 'romantic mysteries'; however,I do like mysteries, and I'm under the tropical spell of St. Lucia. This is a very good read, with an intriguing plot, and interesting characters. But the Island itself and its colonial, Afro-Caribbean heritage, are the main focus here. Believe me, everyone in St. Lucia ends up talking to the birds. Read it. You won't want to put it down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read April 30, 2006
Format:Paperback
A Dream Across Time By Annie Roger is a novel, set in the exotic beauty of St. Lucia, will make you wonder about mystical possibilities of reincarnation and generational collective memory. The simple story carries you to the end because of the delightful character Jamie and her love, Andre. Their chance meeting, their struggles with their own personal lives, their ultimate destiny to be together unfold in a series of simple events prompting the folklore of the island's secret history to be revealed by the keepers of the ancient secrets. The book is fanciful and light reading and an entertaining escape read, especially if you are a female going to an exotic island, especially in the Caribbean. You never know what awaits you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating and Original! April 2, 2006
Format:Paperback
A DREAM ACROSS TIME is a story that grabs you, and takes you on a journey you will not soon forget. Set in culture-rich St. Lucia, A DREAM ACROSS TIME is infused with eclectic characters and local color. This book has the perfect union of romance and mystery, of setting and story. At a time when the critics say that all the good stories have been told, this is a book to prove them wrong. A DREAM ACROSS TIME is original and eloquent, intelligent and arresting. In essence, it has all the components of a masterpiece. This reader for one, could not ask for a better dream than that.

5.0 out of 5 stars It was like a mini-vacation! February 11, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Reading this book was like taking a mini-vacation. The authors captured the sights and sounds of this magical Caribbean island so well that I felt as though I had been transported through time AND space. The plot moves right along, but keeps you guessing until the final moment. Add some well-written dialogue, a mix of interesting (and believable) characters, and you have a "can't-put-it-down-'til-I'm-done" treat. I look forward to reading more of their work!

5.0 out of 5 stars A breath of fresh fiction March 23, 2006
Format:Paperback
A refreshing change of pace from tried-and-true plots and locale, A DREAM ACROSS TIME delivers romance and mystery with a mystical touch. Set in St. Lucia, the island history and forklore takes the reader to a fascinating location. The Annie Rogers team of Roger and Mala Burt use their psychology knowledge to build credible characters. A DREAM ACROSS TIME is the first of what promises to be a winning trilogy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just when I needed a vacation... February 24, 2004
Format:Paperback
This book held me from the first chapter. I have read many books in my day, and this book has to rate as one of my favorites. The plot kept me reading from the first page. I felt like I was in the Carribean with Jamie, feeling her pain and her joys. I can hardly wait to plan a vacation to St. Lucia to see this beautiful island. I feel as though I have already been there.
