Book Review: Dream Daughter by Diane Chamberlain #6bookbestiesapproved #6bookbestiesdreamdaughter #6bookbestiessmp @stmartinspress @D_chamberlain


Oh, this book. This book wrecked me in the best possible way. All the stars and tears.

I was so very wary about coming into this one because: time travel. It’s not my jam. But Diane Chamberlain just flipped the script on my skeptical behind and blew this out of the water.

In a nutshell, this is a story of a mother’s unconditional, unrelenting love and how she will do anything and everything for her daughter. As a mother myself, I found this to be so beautifully relatable and understood this feeling on a deeply profound level. To put yourself in this character’s shoes was an exercise in absolute heartbreak.

There are twists and turns and mind boggling time slips that will keep you on your toes and the pace moving along beautifully.

Please, dear reader, if you are anything like me and don’t do time travel in your books – give this one a chance anyway. You will not be disappointed.

Ms. Chamberlain, I applaud you for this deeply moving and intricately woven tale.

Thank you to St. Martin’s Press for my advance copy. This was a @6bookbesties read, be sure to check out the reviews from Kendall, Berit, Mackenzie, Jennifer and Holly below!

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

    Beautiful review, Melisa!!! I loved reading this together because you have me even more perspective on this book! And I agree, it’s really not a time travel book. It’s a book about a mother who uses time travel to save her child! 💕💕
