Hidden in Dreams - Book Review

Author: Davis Bunn
Publisher: Howard Books

Book Description:

Dr. Elena Burroughs's life is spiraling out of control. Her controversial stance on dream interpretation has cost her a job, a romance, and all credibility in academic circles. Her literary agent tries to leverage the outcry into a publicity tour, which soon attracts a quirky following. Among the skeptics and mystics is a condescending scientist. But Elena finds his research holds ominous parallels with her own. A certain dream pattern has foretold every major catastrophe stretching back to the dawn of civilization. And now this dream is repeating itself in countless nightmares across the globe.

Elena is confronted with a harrowing realization: the clock is ticking down to a cataclysmic financial collapse. Her desperation mounts as the prediction infiltrate her own dreams. Will this scientist become an unlikely ally - and maybe something more? Could an ancient biblical secret about the power of dreams and visions offer them an escape?

My Thoughts:

Elena has faced being out of her comfort zone before being pushed into the press conference, seven years prior when her husband died and also when her house burned down. Each dream Elena has gets significantly worse in its prediction. The other dreamers have the exact dream the same day she does.

Most of the time, I don't remember my dreams. However, there are times when I do. The idea of finding out several other people that have had the same dream is scary. If my dream was, maybe, a foretelling of the future and finding out others have had the exact same dream is even scarier. I try not to think what my dreams mean, although some of my friends like to do so.

Disclosure: Many thanks to Howard Books for the opportunity to review Hidden in Dreams. I received a complimentary copy of this book for purposes of  facilitating this review.
