Praise for "The Good Dream"

""

"The story of a woman's love, sacrifice, and bravery to save a small, wounded boy, Donna VanLiere has faithfully re-created the South of the 1950s, in both the innocence of the time and its evil. It's a beautiful story."--Kathleen Kent, bestselling author of "The Heretic's Daughter"

""The Good Dream" is a great story of people saving each other in the unlikeliest ways. A heartwarming winner of a book." -- Jenna Blum, bestselling author of "The Stormchasers"

"Both heartrending and redemptive, "The Good Dream" imagines the profound power that love holds to change a life."--- Katherine Howe, bestselling author of "The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane"

Donna VanLiere has created a marvelous character in Ivorie of Morgan Hill, Tennessee. Hers is a compelling story of a young woman who must choose between her dreams and saving a boy she is told is forever damaged. Her struggle will intrigue you, entertain you, and will make you think important thoughts. That's about as much as we can ask a novel to do. - Homer Hickam, author of "Rocket Boys/October Sky" and "The Keeper's Son."

"Written with all the gumption of its Tennessee characters, "The Good Dream" is a great story of people saving each other in the unlikeliest ways. A heartwarming winner of a book." -- Jenna Blum, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Those Who Save Us "and "The Stormchasers"

"Donna VanLiere has woven an intoxicating Southern gothic tale of solitary Ivorie Walker, a capable young woman who must confront the terrible secrets that lie below the placid surface of life in the 1950s Tennessee countryside. At times both heartrending and redemptive, "The Good Dream" imagines the profound power that love holds to change a life, while tracing the reverberations that one woman's courage can send tearing through an entire community."-- Katherine Howe, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane"
