Book Description

Dr. Sara Alderson can deal with eighty-hour workweeks as a resident at Children’s Hospital. Dealing with crises in the Emergency Room or the OR is second nature to her. But now she faces a challenge that all of her training and experience hasn’t prepared her for: Lizzie, her four-year-old daughter, has inherited her ability to see other people’s dreams.

After Lizzie befriends a young boy on a trip to Washington, DC, and then wakes up in a panic that night because of a “bad funny dream,” Sara knows exactly what it means: her daughter is visiting the boy’s dreams. Complicating matters is the fact that the boy’s father is a Congressman, and he’s dreaming about a “scary man in a big black car” threatening his Daddy.

Unraveling a case of political corruption and blackmail would be hard enough for Sara under the best of circumstances. But when she has to view everything through the eyes of a toddler, it may be an impossible task.

Dream Child is the third book of the Dream Series.

This time, the twist of the entire Dream series on the “What if you could see someone else’s dreams” question has taken an extra new bend. It is, “What if your child could see your dreams, and the dreams of others? What if she has your power?”

Here is the first time Sara realizes that her daughter, Lizzie, can see inside her: “She was seeing—she was inside—she saw me dreaming. She’s got it just like I do.” Being inside her is doubly frightening because at this point there is a new life inside Sara: she is pregnant again. So in a way, there is a sense of violation when boundaries can be crossed like that, even when the dreamer is only a four-year old, sweet child. On the other hand, there is the motherly wish to keep her daughter safe, which in this case may mean keeping her away from people whose dreams she might penetrate. Which is exactly what happens when Sara and Lizzy meet two strangers, a woman and her son Billy, on the train. Billy’s father is being blackmailed, which will put Billy and his mother in danger.

The conversations are lovely, showing you a family scene between Sara, her mom, her husband Brian, her mother-in-law, Helen, and Lizzy. It is the dialog that wraps the entire mystery in a wholesome, familiar veil, and observations such as this, about Lizzie: “Then she occupies herself by trying to get both twins smiling at the same time, which is a trick none of us have managed yet.” . And, it is also the sense of inheritance of power, and the connection between generations: “I can’t believe that in all this time, for seven whole years, I never once wondered about my mother. If Lizzy got it from me, I had to get it from somewhere too. And I never gave it a thought.”

Five stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Most enjoyable. December 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I confess this is my first foray into J.J. Dibenedetto’s writing. I chose to read book three, unaware they were a series. However, it didn’t matter because the book stood alone.
The story is based around Lizzie, a sweet little girl who has dreams. Some okay, but a number more scary.
Her mother, Sara, is a doctor working in a busy children’s hospital. Sara also dreams, but not as often as she did. Naturally, realising her daughter is going down the same unpleasant road is upsetting for her. It would be a horrible situation for any parent.
As I read the book I felt sorry and concerned for Lizzie…a credit to the authors writing skill. His characters are strong, well fleshed out and so real, you can’t help getting involved and being affected. As the story progresses, Sara and Lizzie find themselves sharing the same dream…spooky!
The dreams are leading Sara and her family to challenge a mobster who is angling to build a waist disposal plant. The plant will create electricity for a vast neighbourhood, but will also be the cause of a lot of sickness. Sara chooses to face the mobster. It helps that she treated his young daughter who has diabetes.
I really like Sara’s husband, Brian, and was a bit disappointed he allowed his wife to face the mobster alone, but as the story progressed I could understand why.
Dream Child is a great read, a little slow to start, but it hots up nicely. There were a few editing issues, like a lack of separation as to who was speaking, which got a little confusing, but it didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the story.
The ending took me by surprise, but I liked it. You’ll have to read the book to find out for yourself.
Dream Child is an enjoyable read and one I can recommend.

I was given a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

All I can say is WOW what a ride from the train ride in the beginning to the climactic ending this book took you on quite a ride. Sara tries to balance home and work as a busy medical resident with a little daughter (who is so cute and makes for some great comedy relief) and a full workload that keeps her hopping. Along with the very prevalent journey into people's dreams. It was awesome to see the growth of the character from book one to book two I didn't want the book to end! I actually read book 3 AGAIN after reading this book. JJ DiBenedetto has such awesome characters and very vivid world building that takes your brain by storm! I would recommend this series of books highly. Reviewed by Lee Ryder of Fae Books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dreams, but not quite koiser February 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Dream Child is the third book.

This is around Lizzie now having the dreams, as well as her mom, Sara. Lizzie is suppose to be four and she is allowed to follow her mom around the hospital on her rounds.

It's a cute cozy mystery, quirky and if you like that thing, you will enjoy it.

For me....the kid in the hospital all the time with the mom, the four year old seeing mobsters in dreams and corrupt politicians, the way sometime Sara is strong and confident and then the next time she is talking she is mousy and flaky, it drove me nuts. My personal opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dream Child June 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a copy of this story in exchange for a honest review. This is book three in the series. I really enjoyed the nice family connection displayed by the main characters. In this book the MC is a MD who works in a children's hospital. She has a 3 year old daughter who just started having the visionary dreams. As a family they solve the mystery and stop the crime from happening. Great read-looking forward to book #4.
