About the Book:
When Caroline Sears receives the news that her unborn baby girl has a heart defect, she is devastated. It is 1970 and there seems to be little that can be done. But her brother-in-law, a physicist, tells her that perhaps there is. Hunter appeared in their lives just a few years before—and his appearance was as mysterious as his past. With no family, no friends, and a background shrouded in secrets, Hunter embraced the Sears family and never looked back.  Now, Hunter is telling her that something can be done about her baby's heart. Something that will shatter every preconceived notion that Caroline has. Something that will require a kind of strength and courage that Caroline never knew existed. Something that will mean a mind-bending leap of faith on Caroline's part. And all for the love of her unborn child. A rich, genre-spanning, breathtaking novel about one mother's quest to save her child, unite her family, and believe in the unbelievable. Diane Chamberlain pushes the boundaries of faith and science to deliver a novel that you will never forget.

I loved this book! I thought the concept was interesting but I was afraid it might be a little too sci-fi or hard to follow... not at all! The story was exceptional and the writing was wonderful. This book kept me captivated from start to finish. Despite the potentially confusing plot, with the main character traveling though time, the story flowed beautifully and was not at all difficult to follow.

The author's unbelievably creative imagination is openly shown throughout the entire book and can be seen just in the fist few pages. There is nothing I could ever say to criticize the writing of the book because it is written so creatively well. Diane Chamberlain reaches out to all readers even if they're not interested in science fiction or love stories because it is not solely focused on one genre, but many which come and go throughout the tale.

I read the last words and close the book on my lap. I look at the cover again and run my hand over it, I am wishing I could travel back in time to start this book all over again, not knowing when I start it how much I'm going to love it. I am not a fan of books or stories involving time travel. It's okay, but it's not something I look for in a book. I like books about people, love, difficulties, marriage, children, lives. And I got all of that and more in The Dream Daughter by Diane Chamberlain. What a wonderful book, what a glorious story.

The Dream Daughter was a book that I could not put down and I recommend it for the creative and complicated plot, in depth character development, and the exhalant delivery of the story.

Thank you NetGalley, St. Martin's Press and Diane Chamberlain for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
