Book Summary:

When You’re Hiding For Your Life, What Do You Live For?

Abbi has the gift of dreams. But her uncanny ability to see glimpses of the future has no apparent purpose or meaning until a dream leads her to a man on the brink of despair and destruction.

Cameron is a man without a name and without a country, framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Long ago forced into exile and believed dead, the passing of years have defaced him of all hope.

The country of Horstberg suffers beneath the weight of tyranny, and only Cameron holds the secret that could see her ruler undone and restore the people to peace and prosperity. While revolution brews and whispers of treason threaten all that is dear to Abbi, she remains unaware of her own ability to answer a nation’s prayers.

Trusting only her heart and the power of her dreams, Abbi gives all that she has to lead Cameron back into a civilized world, where love is real and freedom comes only in facing what hides behind the mask.

Karens review

I loved this book. I have read and loved other books by this author, but this is my first under this pseudonym. Like her other novels, the story delves into hard issues. I liked how the story went through a lot of emotions and experiences. It was much longer than a lot of the books I’ve read lately. I loved the characters and story. The story of Joseph of Egypt is mentioned in the story. I liked this element, especially since I was reading that story in my personal scripture reading at the same time I was reading this book. Reading this book helped me deal better with the trials in my own life I am dealing with and helped me feel gratitude for all I am blessed with. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. There was a bit more swearing than I’d like, but that’s my only complaint.

5 stars
