Book Review: Dreams That Won’t Let Go by Stacy Hawkins AdamsFebruary 12, 2010 at 3:13 pm | Posted in Books | Leave a comment
Stacy Hawkins Adams in her new book, “Dreams That Won’t Let Go” published by Revell returns us for the third time to the town of Jubilant, Texas and the family of Indigo Burns, her sister, Yasmin and brother, Reuben.
Reuben had left Jubilant and the family a decade before and the separation caused a wound in the family that could never heal because Reuben did not want to return home and deal with this issue. Now, due to Indigo’s actions, Reuben is bringing his wife and young son home to Jubilant and the sisters are having trouble dealing with his return. Part of the issue is the sibling’s parents had both died and it is the grandparents that are raising them and they were also wounded by Reuben’s departure. So they are now doting on him and giving him special attention that both sisters resent and have to deal with.
This book is all about family relationships, brothers with sisters and sisters with sisters and the consequences of our actions within the family. The story shows how the Burns family has their own personal issues and yet they are able to deal with them without losing their love for each other.
All the characters are likable and Ms. Adams has a way of bringing you into the story and making the little town very real.
