New York Times bestselling author Diane Chamberlain delivers a thrilling, mind-bending novel about one mother's journey to save her child.

When Carly Sears, a young woman widowed by the Vietnam war, receives the news that her unborn baby girl has a heart defect, she is devastated. It is 1970, and she is told that nothing can be done to help her child. But her brother-in-law, a physicist with a mysterious past, tells her that perhaps there is a way to save her baby. What he suggests is something that will shatter every preconceived notion that Carly has. Something that will require a kind of strength and courage she never knew existed. Something that will mean an unimaginable leap of faith on Carly's part.

And all for the love of her unborn child.

The Dream Daughter is a rich, genre-spanning, breathtaking novel about one mother's quest to save her child, unite her family, and believe in the unbelievable. Diane Chamberlain pushes the boundaries of faith and science to deliver a novel that you will never forget.

I could not put this book down. It makes you wonder if it's possible to time - travel to the future and back again. This was an unusual book for Diane Chamberlain (I've read everything she's written) but this was far different from her others. It's truly a book that's different, interesting and totally absorbing.

Chamberlain is an amazing storyteller. Her newest book is nothing less than amazing. Is time-travel possible? In this work of fiction it is and the story will play with your emotions. You will not want to put this one down.

This compelling novel is a genre-bender and I could not put it down! The story is told by Carly and Hunter. They become family in 1965, but were really born decades apart. With his knowledge from the future, Hunter helps Carly to time-travel for medical intervention not available in 1970. This first trip makes others necessary and Carly's experiences tear at your heartstrings and keep you on the edge of your seat. Would make a wonderful book group selection with its compelling plot and many issues to discuss.
