Product Description

Product Description

Dr. Sara Alderson can deal with eighty-hour workweeks as a resident at Children’s Hospital. Dealing with crises in the Emergency Room or the OR is second nature to her. But now she faces a challenge that all of her training and experience hasn’t prepared her for: Lizzie, her four-year-old daughter, has inherited her ability to see other people’s dreams.

After Lizzie befriends a young boy on a trip to Washington, DC, and then wakes up in a panic that night because of a “bad funny dream,” Sara knows exactly what it means: her daughter is visiting the boy’s dreams. Complicating matters is the fact that the boy’s father is a Congressman, and he’s dreaming about a “scary man in a big black car” threatening his Daddy.

Unraveling a case of political corruption and blackmail would be hard enough for Sara under the best of circumstances. But when she has to view everything through the eyes of a toddler, it may be an impossible task.

Dream Child is the third book of the Dream Series.

HASH(0xb2f0090c) out of 5 stars Good Series May 18 2015
By Dawn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I received a free copy of the ebook for an honest review.

Dream Child is the third book the Dream Series. I thought the first two books, Dream Student and Dream Doctor, were okay but I liked this one quite a bit more. One thing that I didn’t care for in the first two books was Sara’s rambling thoughts, but there wasn’t near as much of that in this book.

In Dream Child, Sara finds out that her 3 (almost 4) year old daughter, Lizzie, has the same gift (curse?) that she does. She and her husband, Brian, work together to help Lizzie deal with her psychic dreams.

I liked Sara more in Dream Child. She has not only matured, but there weren’t any obvious clues that she missed like she did in the previous books.

Brian is the perfect supportive husband and Lizzie is my favorite character. She’s not only adorable but smart. I’ve met a couple of 4 years olds like her and they amazed me!

Dream Child is about family relationships, Sara’s residency, and a mystery that needs to be solved. I’m glad I stuck with this series. It’s getting better and I’m looking forward to reading the next one, Dream Family.

HASH(0xb2f00960) out of 5 stars Sara and Brian's story continues with a new twist April 15 2015
By Jules-Mighty Tired Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Sara and Brian's story continues with a new twist...their daughter, Lizzie, has inherited Sara's gift!

The mystery that Sara's, and now Lizzie's, dreams are prompting them to solve is entirely different than the previous two books. There is always a fear that the plots will get boring and formulaic in a series but that is definitely NOT the case with this one. However I was waiting for Sara to get injured in the line of crime fighting this time...maybe it's the klutz in me who can relate to a character injuring herself constantly (says the woman who's been on crutches at least 5 times in the past 18 years).

The political and organized crime aspects are very well-written. I love reading along and putting the pieces together as the characters do.

I have to say DiBenedetto does a great job of balancing very adult topics while staying true to the mind of a very smart, sensitive 4 year old. Nothing that Lizzie does or says seems beyond the scope of a child. I also love how Lizzie's character develops so quickly as she realizes, as much as a small child can, the responsibility she has when she has these dreams.

I have to say that I even liked the "bad guys" in this one! Their characters were very human and personable. I could relate to them as much as I could relate to Sara's fear of them. And I have to agree that Sara has certainly "got a pair."

For me personally Sara's gushing over the perfection of her and Brian's relationship is starting to irk me a little. BUT I did not let that detract from the rating of the book because my cynicism in the arena of love apparently knows no bounds and I realize that my negativity comes from jealousy. Hey, at least I'm honest LOL

Now...ready for the next one! I couldn't stop reading them if I tried.

HASH(0xb2f00d98) out of 5 stars I Played Hooky to Read Dream Child! Jan. 19 2015
By Rochelle Weber, Roses & Thorns Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the third book in J.J. DiBenedetto’s Dream Series, and I feel as though Sara and her family are old friends. Sara, her mother-in-law Helen, and Lizzie are en-route to Washington, DC, for a medical conference when Lizzie meets five year-old Billy Hanratty. In an hilarious passage, Lizzie cleans and bandages a wound Billy sustains on a sharp piece of metal when the train zigs and the children zag. She uses soap and toilet paper, and insists Billy needs “a inna-veeny.” It takes Sara a moment to realize Lizzie means an intravenous solution, which she lets Lizzie explain to the fascinated passengers listening in. After “checking” Lizzie’s work and allowing her to cleanse the wound with an alcohol swab and help dress it with a real bandage, Sara introduces herself to Billy’s mom and learns they are the family of the Congressman who represents her district in DC. That night, Lizzie starts visiting Billy’s dreams about his Daddy and a scary man in a big, black car, and Sara, her husband Paul, and best friend Beth have to unravel a mystery interpreted by a four year-old.

Again, Mr. DiBenedetto has written a terrific stand-alone thriller wrapped in the warmth of family, and fueled by other people’s dreams. This time, however, the dreams come through a pair of little kids, with only occasional “first-hand” glimpses when Sara visits Lizzie’s dreams while she’s inside Billy’s. Talk about keeping a series fresh! As usual, Dream Child engaged me at the very beginning, especially with Lizzie’s account of her ministrations to Billy. The whole book is worth buying just to read that passage. And it kept me reading to the very end. There was even a day when I was at my volunteer job at the VA and decided not to open my computer and edit because I couldn’t put down my Kindle. Yes, Mr. DiBenedetto—I played hooky because I couldn’t put it down! Download a copy, get the paperback, or listen to the Audible version and maybe play a little hooky with Dream Child yourself.

HASH(0xb2f04174) out of 5 stars What if your child has your power? What if she can see your dreams? Oct. 3 2014
By Uvi Poznansky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This time, the twist of the entire Dream series on the “What if you could see someone else’s dreams” question has taken an extra new bend. It is, “What if your child could see your dreams, and the dreams of others? What if she has your power?”

Here is the first time Sara realizes that her daughter, Lizzie, can see inside her: “She was seeing—she was inside—she saw me dreaming. She’s got it just like I do.” Being inside her is doubly frightening because at this point there is a new life inside Sara: she is pregnant again. So in a way, there is a sense of violation when boundaries can be crossed like that, even when the dreamer is only a four-year old, sweet child. On the other hand, there is the motherly wish to keep her daughter safe, which in this case may mean keeping her away from people whose dreams she might penetrate. Which is exactly what happens when Sara and Lizzy meet two strangers, a woman and her son Billy, on the train. Billy’s father is being blackmailed, which will put Billy and his mother in danger.

The conversations are lovely, showing you a family scene between Sara, her mom, her husband Brian, her mother-in-law, Helen, and Lizzy. It is the dialog that wraps the entire mystery in a wholesome, familiar veil, and observations such as this, about Lizzie: “Then she occupies herself by trying to get both twins smiling at the same time, which is a trick none of us have managed yet.” . And, it is also the sense of inheritance of power, and the connection between generations: “I can’t believe that in all this time, for seven whole years, I never once wondered about my mother. If Lizzy got it from me, I had to get it from somewhere too. And I never gave it a thought.”

Five stars.

This book was sent to me gratis for an unbiased review.

HASH(0xb2f04258) out of 5 stars Most enjoyable. Dec 4 2013
By Yvonne Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I confess this is my first foray into J.J. Dibenedetto’s writing. I chose to read book three, unaware they were a series. However, it didn’t matter because the book stood alone.
The story is based around Lizzie, a sweet little girl who has dreams. Some okay, but a number more scary.
Her mother, Sara, is a doctor working in a busy children’s hospital. Sara also dreams, but not as often as she did. Naturally, realising her daughter is going down the same unpleasant road is upsetting for her. It would be a horrible situation for any parent.
As I read the book I felt sorry and concerned for Lizzie…a credit to the authors writing skill. His characters are strong, well fleshed out and so real, you can’t help getting involved and being affected. As the story progresses, Sara and Lizzie find themselves sharing the same dream…spooky!
The dreams are leading Sara and her family to challenge a mobster who is angling to build a waist disposal plant. The plant will create electricity for a vast neighbourhood, but will also be the cause of a lot of sickness. Sara chooses to face the mobster. It helps that she treated his young daughter who has diabetes.
I really like Sara’s husband, Brian, and was a bit disappointed he allowed his wife to face the mobster alone, but as the story progressed I could understand why.
Dream Child is a great read, a little slow to start, but it hots up nicely. There were a few editing issues, like a lack of separation as to who was speaking, which got a little confusing, but it didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the story.
The ending took me by surprise, but I liked it. You’ll have to read the book to find out for yourself.
Dream Child is an enjoyable read and one I can recommend.

I was given a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
