“The Dream Daughter” by Diane Chamberlain

“The Dream Daughter” by Diane Chamberlain

How far would you go to save the life of your unborn child? One young mother is about to find out. It’s 1970 and Carly has recently lost her husband to the Vietnam War. Shortly before she had found out she’s is pregnant with their first child. A few months later, her doctor tells her that her unborn child has a heart defect that will be fatal once the child is born and there is nothing that can be done. Her physicist brother-in-law thinks he has a solution, but it’s a drastic one, and will take all of Carly’s courage to give her daughter a chance at life.

This story left me breathless and in tears at several points. The intensity of the drama surrounding the birth of Carly’s daughter is quite moving. The author has written the story in a way that really makes the reader feel like they are right there living the story with the character. And the characters are ordinary people who find themselves thrown into extraordinary circumstances. Their ability to stand strong throughout is inspiring and uplifting. In particular, I really liked how the author wrote the teenage girl to be so true to what every teenage girl I’ve ever met is like. The story line is unique and full of surprises. I think a wide variety of readers will really love this book.
