Since book one, I have been following the lives of Brian and Sara Alderson from the day they met, married, started their careers, and had children. Now in book six, Sara and Brian face many challenges. Sara has given birth to their son, Matthew, at the time of 9/11, so naturally her dreams reflect what happens. In addition, she is faced with troubles from her godmother, Kat, her friend, Janet, and dreams from a man she can’t identify, but who is planning on burning his business and collecting the insurance money. She is sure he is someone from her past, but who?
In addition to everything else, a decision Sara made to operate on her friend Beth’s daughter Sara has resulted in her malpractice insurance to go up, taking a huge chunk out of their budget. No matter what happens, Brian is always there to give comfort and support to Sara.
Finally Beth comes up with a very probable scenario of why Sara is seeing the dreams of someone she is not familiar with. Their ten year class reunion is in a week. That explains why she is seeing the dreams of someone from her past. She still doesn’t know what to do about her godmother, or her friend, Janet, She has sworn never to enter someone’s dreams to help them, but she has to do something about the man who is planning arson and insurance fraud. With five children now, since adopting Grace, a medical practice, a husband who is starting to feel guilty about his work and the fact that what he has helped build will be used in war, a huge increase in her insurance, a shortage of money and dreams that keep plaguing her, Sara’s life is anything but easy. It may get harder when she finds the man planning the arson.
Once at the reunion it doesn’t take Sara long to realize whose dreams she has been seeing and it is someone she called a friend. Now she has to figure out a way to help without letting him know about her dreams. Who is the man? Can Sara help him without revealing how she knows about it? Can Sara help Janet and Kat? As always Sara has a very full plate. Is this going to be the time she fails?
I have read every book in this series; they should definitely be read in order. Besides the fact that it is a story about Sara and her dreams, it is more importantly a story about a family and how they cope with everything. I don’t know if the author is basing Sara on someone he knows, but if so, then that woman is someone I wish I knew. I look forward to Sara and Brian’s next adventure and hope it will be soon.
