Book Synopsis: In the exciting sequel to Book of Dreams from bestselling author Davis Bunn, Elena Burroughs is attacked by dreams for which she has only one explanation: they are not her own.Elena Burroughs finds her life spiraling out of control. She is dismissed from her position as psychologist at the Oxford University clinic. And the man she hoped she might love is lost to the demands of new work in a distant land. Elena accepts her agent’s request for another world tour, resulting in a huge rush of new publicity and some very public conflict with established authorities. Rachel, a clinical biologist and statistician, approaches Elena for help with the disturbing dreams of one of her patients. Oddly, they mirror Rachel’s research findings about a dream pattern that has foretold every major global catastrophe stretching back to the dawn of civilization. That night Elena has precisely the same dream as Rachel’s patient, predicting a cataclysmic financial collapse far worse than what brought on the Great Depression. She searches the professional websites and discovers that her most vehement critic has a client experiencing the same repetitive dreams. Together, they form an unlikely alliance, one that threatens to pierce Elena’s emotional isolation. All the while, the clock is ticking down to devastation. It’s no longer about the dreams. It’s about survival.My Thoughts: AMAZING! This book is soooooo good. I honestly got more than I had hoped for with this one!! When I first picked up this book for review, I did not realize that it was a second book in a series. Now, I was more than able to keep up with what was going on, but I know that I would have had an even better time reading it if I had read the first book. I also know that I will be picking up the first book, Book of Dreams, as soon as I can!!
The build up and intensity of the writing is something you rarely find! This kind of suspense is what makes reading a pleasure! Davis Bunn is a remarkable author who knows just how to grab a reader and keep them enthralled! The content of Hidden in Dreams is so complex, yet so what the reader needs in order to get the plot. I loved how Bunn intertwined the characters' Christian faith with the scientific facts, economic issues, and notion of foretelling. These elements combined to create a very compelling, almost frightening, thought-provoking tale.
If I would not read another book this summer, I know that Hidden Dreams has provided me with far more than I ever get out of most summer reads! I am going to be telling everyone about his one!!
