ASHLYNN’S DREAMS, by Author Julie C. Gilbert, is the story of twelve-year-old Jillian Marie Antel Blairington (AKA Ashlynn) who is kidnapped. In a journal she records her life about her daddies one, two, three, and her new daddy, and about her kidnapping. Danielle, her babysitter, is also kidnapped, and tells her experiences in a journal. Now, these are not just any kidnappers; they have shocking news for Jillian. They call her Ashlynn, and that’s only the beginning. Her life changes in ways she could never have imagined, and the reader follows along with Ashlynn as she discovers the truth about her existence.
Julie C. Gilbert has created a fascinating world of how far some will go to get what they want. I don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll just say that you’ll enter the warped minds of scientists that will make you wonder if what they’ve done is actually possible. Who knows?
ASHLYNN’S DREAMS kept me wondering if or how Ashlynn’s kidnapping would end. The author has created believable characters that I either loved or hoped got what they deserved. The journal entries move the story along. A very nice novel.
The author provided me with an eCopy of the book for my honest review.
The story is convincing enough to make one think about their parentage and the role science may have played in their existence. I am reminded of another book, by an author I cannot remember, but it had similar implications--scientists creating an army capable of healing itself and never unavailable for war.
It's a book that's a little eerie to think about--how manipulative and deceptive people can be out of greed and having God-complex. I can imagine that there could be "some" good from the manipulation of genes and DNA, but do we really have to right--especially without the consent or knowledge of those affected? I can only pray this is not occurring, right now.
In spite of the fact that I don't necessarily like--banner headings with each chapter, they work for this book. Julie is a very talented writer and I'm sure we'll one day see her at the top of the best-seller list.
An entertaining read and definitely a story worth taking the time to include.
Ms Gilbert is an excellent writer and Ashlynn's Dreams is a well edited book. She has an amazing imagination and while at first there seems to be too many characters to follow, she manages to weave them together and make them all distinct and all very charming. I look forward to the sequel!
Would recommend this book even to those who do not like science fiction.
