Dream Child is the third book the Dream Series. I thought the first two books, Dream Student and Dream Doctor, were okay but I liked this one quite a bit more. One thing that I didn’t care for in the first two books was Sara’s rambling thoughts, but there wasn’t near as much of that in this book.
In Dream Child, Sara finds out that her 3 (almost 4) year old daughter, Lizzie, has the same gift (curse?) that she does. She and her husband, Brian, work together to help Lizzie deal with her psychic dreams.
I liked Sara more in Dream Child. She has not only matured, but there weren’t any obvious clues that she missed like she did in the previous books.
Brian is the perfect supportive husband and Lizzie is my favorite character. She’s not only adorable but smart. I’ve met a couple of 4 years olds like her and they amazed me!
Dream Child is about family relationships, Sara’s residency, and a mystery that needs to be solved. I’m glad I stuck with this series. It’s getting better and I’m looking forward to reading the next one, Dream Family.
Book 3, Dream Child, begins with Sara learning she is pregnant for the second time - this time with twins. This would be challenging enough for any woman, but Sara is already juggling marriage, motherhood to four-year-old daughter Lizzie, and her first year of residency. And did I mention she has the unique ability to observe other people's dreams? At least she believes it's unique until she learns Lizzie has the same ability.
Sara's dream ability has always surfaced when there is impending danger, and the ability is no different with Lizzie. When Lizzie begins seeing the confusing dreams of the young son of a congressman, Sara knows there is a reason behind it. Unable to stop her daughter's gift, Sara must help Lizzie navigate the scary labyrinth of what she's seeing while protecting her from the meaning behind it.
Like the first two books in the series, Dream Child stands alone, but I highly recommend reading all of the books in order. Each book is captivating, the writing excellent, and the stories completely original and unique.
The mystery that Sara's, and now Lizzie's, dreams are prompting them to solve is entirely different than the previous two books. There is always a fear that the plots will get boring and formulaic in a series but that is definitely NOT the case with this one. However I was waiting for Sara to get injured in the line of crime fighting this time...maybe it's the klutz in me who can relate to a character injuring herself constantly (says the woman who's been on crutches at least 5 times in the past 18 years).
The political and organized crime aspects are very well-written. I love reading along and putting the pieces together as the characters do.
I have to say DiBenedetto does a great job of balancing very adult topics while staying true to the mind of a very smart, sensitive 4 year old. Nothing that Lizzie does or says seems beyond the scope of a child. I also love how Lizzie's character develops so quickly as she realizes, as much as a small child can, the responsibility she has when she has these dreams.
I have to say that I even liked the "bad guys" in this one! Their characters were very human and personable. I could relate to them as much as I could relate to Sara's fear of them. And I have to agree that Sara has certainly "got a pair."
For me personally Sara's gushing over the perfection of her and Brian's relationship is starting to irk me a little. BUT I did not let that detract from the rating of the book because my cynicism in the arena of love apparently knows no bounds and I realize that my negativity comes from jealousy. Hey, at least I'm honest LOL
Now...ready for the next one! I couldn't stop reading them if I tried.

The Dream series books have kept me guessing as to how it will end.
