About the Book
What Dreams May Come (Sweet Dreams #1)
by Alana Terry
Description from Goodreads:
She's got her heart set on becoming a missionary. He's determined to recruit her for the job.
But is it possible to fall in love with someone you've never even met?
Susannah's convinced that God has called her to the mission field. That's why she's serving him with single-minded focus in Orchard Grove, waiting for the day when she can leave her small town to take the gospel to the nations.
Is falling in love with her missionary recruiter part of God's plan for her life or a distraction from the real goal?
Scott loves his life. Traveling the globe, offering spiritual support to missionaries around the world offers enough excitement that the loneliness hardly ever gets to him ...
Until he receives an application from a young girl with a heart for the mission field as large as his own, a young girl he finds himself falling for even before they get the chance to meet face-to-face.
Unfortunately, a promise Susannah made to her family may tear her and Scott even farther apart than the miles that separate them.
Book one in an inspirational sweet romance series by award-winning Christian author Alana Terry, who has won awards from Women of Faith, The Book Club Network, Grace Awards, and several others, What Dreams May Come is based off of the author's own experiences falling in love with (and eventually marrying) her missionary recruiter.
What Dreams May Come is a sweet Christian contemporary romance. In it, Susannah is determined to be a missionary and isn’t interested in any man unless he is headed toward the same goal. But she finds herself falling for the missionary agency’s recruiter, the man on the phone who she’s never met in person and who isn’t necessarily going to move overseas like she plans to. What is she to do?
What Dreams May Come was a very sweet romance. As the author wrote in her note, it is based somewhat on her own romance with her husband. I enjoyed reading about the characters, watching them grow and struggle through difficult choices and circumstances. It was especially interesting to see what choices Susannah made in regards to her disabled sister and to see her involvement in her community. As a whole, I found the characters very relatable and likable, and I enjoyed watching them fall more deeply in love and make choices regarding their future.
I enjoyed his sweet story very much and recommend it to fans of contemporary Chrisian romance.
