Review of Book of Dreams + Giveaway!!

Today I have a book that I was pretty excited about reviewing. Davis Bunn is one of my favorite authors and this is the newest book he has published. I am part of a blog tour so there is also a book giveaway!! That's right:) One of my readers will get their hands on this excellent book. So, read below my review and make sure to get your entries in. You don't want to miss this book!!

How does God use dreams and visions to communicate with people?

For Dr. Elena Burroughs, life is divided into two chapters—before and after the death of her husband. Today marks the point that her span of being a wife is equal to her span of being a widow. Even her success as a psychologist and her worldwide acclaim for a book on the interpretation of dreams is dimmed by an unspoken “If only.”

Then a new patient arrives, one so private only her first name is given. Impeccably dressed and escorted by two bodyguards, Sandra recounts a frightening series of recurrent nightmares. Elena agrees to consider her case more carefully, convinced that something ominous may be at work here.

Elena’s interpretation of Sandra’s dreams confirms that, indeed, the new patient and her family confront a powerful global network of dangerous forces. As the story unfolds, they face a key question of the Christian life: How do you understand and fulfill the will of God?

Bio: Davis Bunn did his undergraduate studies at Wake Forest University in North Carolina, where he earned honors degrees in both economics and psychology. He then travelled to London, where he continued this dual approach, earning a Master of Science degree in both industrial psychology and international economics. After teaching at a Swiss university for a year, he entered into a business career that took him to more than 40 countries in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.

Davis came to faith at age 28, and began writing two weeks later. Before that point, he had never written anything longer than a business report. He wrote for nine years and completed seven novels before the first was accepted for publication. That book was The Presence, released by Bethany House in 1991. Davis and his wife, Isabella, make their home in Florida for some of each year, and spend the rest near Oxford, England, where they each teach and write. Visit Davis at www.davisbunn.com

MY REVIEW-This was an interesting book. It deals with a lot of different things but Davis Bunn pulls off the whole plot deliciously! There is so much mystery in these pages I read through it in two days:) And I also put off some of my other review books, so if I am late on posting another review, I will send them this post:D JK! But it did pull me from my other duties. If you are the type of person who likes a good novel that makes you think, this is your book!! Pick up a copy today!!

Long ago, I had a dream where I was told a certain man would be my husband. Wrong!
I like Davis Bunn's books, especially his suspenseful ones, so would love to win a copy of "Book of Dreams."

My dreams are about real life happenings so sometimes I get confused. Did that really happen or was it only a dream? I have had deja vu but can't pinpoint a specific instance. Just a "haven't I heard that before?" Crazy, I know. kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.

I usually don't remember my dreams and if I do, they don't make any sense! I don't think I have ever had a premonition.
