From the Back Cover

Can family ties bind deep-seated wounds?

Indigo Burns is excited. Her wedding preparations to the man of her dreams are under way, her photography career is a success, and her family seems to be doing better than ever--all except her brother Reuben, who nobody has seen in years. But that's about to change.

When Reuben decides to move back home to Jubilant, Texas, he hopes to find healing with his sisters. But Indigo isn't so sure their relationship can be mended. And when younger sister Yasmin makes a life-altering choice, it seems like only a miracle can put the Burns family back together.

Will they ever be able love unconditionally and release each other to live their dreams?

By Tavares S. Carney VINE VOICE on February 16, 2010
Format: Paperback
This novel, Dreams That Won't Let Go by Stacy Hawkins Adams, is the final offering from Ms. Adams' Jubilant Soul trilogy. While this book does stand alone, it is with great pleasure that I am happy to have read installment one, The Someday List. Interestingly enough, without having read installment two of the series, Worth A Thousand Words, I was able to pick right back up with the ongoings of the Burns family. In Dreams That Won't Let Go, the Burns clan grapples with issues that each has been holding within. Grateful to the grandparents who raised them, the three Burns children, Reuben, Indigo and Yasmin, can not help but to wonder if somehow their dreams have been deferred.

As Reuben, Indigo and Yasmin face their fears, they hope to one day realize their dreams, and to have the kind of family they each long for. After a more recent upheaval, and with the aid of the supporting characters, Peyton, Reuben's wife, and Max, Indigo's fiancee', as well as Pastor Taylor, the Burns family struggles to overcome pain and hurt that has festered for years.

I enjoyed reading this selection. The characters are well-developed, and believable. I recommend this selection to parents afraid to let go and let God and any reader that enjoys inspirational selections.

"Dreams That Won't Let Go" by Stacy Hawkins Adams ....

"Indigo Burns is excited. Her wedding preparations to the man of her dreams are under way, her career as a photographer is a success, and her family seems to be doing better than ever - all except her brother Reuben who nobody has seen in years. But that's about to change, because Reuben has decided to move back home to Jubilant, Texas."

What I liked about "Dreams That Won't Let Go"

This is a beautiful and enjoyable series that I have loved reading...a journey with the Burns family. I liked how this author brought out to the readers that a family's with hidden secrets can almost destroyed relationships. "Dreams That Won't Let Go" is a very inspirational read that was about 'real life circumstances' that occur in our everyday life that will deals with love, grief and family issues. This will definitely be a read of 'emotional intensity' with some twist that will keep you turning the pages. The characters: Reuben, Indigo, Yasmin, Peyton, Max, Pastor Taylor...to name a few were all well developed and very believable...only giving you one amazing read.

Adams has way to draw you into the luves of the characters. Their situations are things that most people deal with in thier own life. Its not reality tv drama but more subtle family dilemmas that are handled with live & grace. I enjoy taking books by her on beach vacations as they are relaxing and provide clarity. To be honest I hear God in her message and it feels like it is always what I need & when.

This Jubilant series was A-ma-zing! I love the lessons that are weaved into the story without sounding preachy. Mrs. Hawkins Adams ability to make the characters come alive and sound like someone you know is outstanding.

I hope that we get to learn more about Yasmin and Taryn...oh and Shelby. I love that the author didn't forget about friends and family from earlier stories in the series.

Put the entire series in your cart. BTW the Mrs. Hawkins Adams does a great job of allowing each book in the series not fully depend on the previous books. She is wise enough to keep you up to speed yet leave you desiring full details.

This whole series was amazing! It was all about faith and family! Nothing like trusting God with all our problems. The Burns family had many trials and tribulations but they made it. This series is definitely a must read!

Dreams That Won't Let Go by Stacy Hawkins Adams is a story about the Burns family. Indigo Burns is newly engaged and so excited for this next journey in life. She really needs her family to be there for her, mainly her mother, but that all changes when her brother, Rueben, comes back home to Jubliant, Texas. Rueben has been away from home for years, with no explanation of why he never came back. Now that he has returned all of the family's attention turns to him and away from Indigo and her younger sister, Yasmin.

Rueben is returning for healing. But cannot seem to start the process because of the bitterness and betrayal that his sisters feel towards him. It takes trials and hard times for the Burns family to come together. Will they ever be able to mend their relationship? Will this family be a loving unit once again?

Adams is an amazing writer, I never just got into the book. There was no real climax in the story. I did enjoy the message of family sticking by each other and communicating even through the bad times. If you are a fan of Adams, I think you will enjoy. It was just not a favorite of mine.
