Dream Child - J.J. DiBenedetto

Dream Child
"I would give anything to take this away from her.  I would gladly go back to having the nightmares myself – the very worst ones, the ones that had me waking up screaming in a pool of my own vomit – rather than see Lizzie go through this..." 
As a resident at Children's Hospital, Sara can handle ninety hour workweeks, fighting to save her young patients from deadly childhood diseases.  But she's about to be faced with a challenge that all her training and experience haven't prepared her for: her four-year-old daughter has inherited her ability to see other people's dreams...
"Dream Child" is the suspenseful third novel in the "Dreams" series.


This third installment of the Dream series has jumped more into the future and in its own way is more difficult to deal with the distresses the characters problems.  I've always had an emotional connection and protective instinct that kicks in when children are involved and this is no different.  DiBenedetto does NOT disappoint in Dream Child.  He keeps the same pace and high level of characters as I've come to expect.
I am amazed at the depth reached in Dream Child.  Lizzie is a precocious, lovable child that you can instantly believe in.  And I love that we get to catch up with Beth, Sara's longtime friend that we met in Dream Student.  With completely new dangers on new levels for Sara to struggle with, it is wonderful that she maintains her initial strength and actually has grown over the years of her fictional life, as a doctor, parent, person, and dreamer.  I think it was fitting for Sara to go into pediatrics and I love her for it.
Thank you DiBenedetto!!  I think it is time to move on to book 4 because I just have to know what you dreamed up for us next!
