Dreams That Won't Let Go

Sometimes you have to come home to discover who you are…

Essence bestselling author Stacy Hawkins Adams releases the final book in her popular Jubilant Soul series: Dreams That Won’t Let Go.
Readers have followed along with the Burns family of Jubilant, Texas as they’ve experienced heartaches, celebrated new faced life-changing choices and learned how far faith can carry them through it all.

Now in Dreams That Won’t Let Go, everything seems to be going along perfectly for Indigo Burns: Her wedding preparations to the man of her dreams are under way and her career as a photographer is a success. Even her family seems to be doing better than ever—all except her brother Reuben who no one has seen in years. But that's about to change, because Reuben has decided to move back home to Jubilant, bringing with him all his unspoken secrets and upsetting all of Indigo’s best-laid plans.

As the family struggles to deal with the pain of the past and find healing, Dreams That Won’t Let Go illustrates that despite what has happened in our lives, there is always a second chance where love conquers all.

Stacy Hawkins Adams is a writer for the Richmond Times-Dispatch and the author of several novels, including the Essence bestseller The Someday List and Worth a Thousand Words. All of Stacy's novels have been bestsellers in Black Expressions Book Club.

Available January 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

My Review: I was not disappointed by this next book in the series. There were still a few things that had me lost for a bit but I'm not sure if that was the author's intent or I was missing background info by not having read the first book in the series.
While Dreams That Won't Let Go did divulge an unknown from Reuben's past; it didn't have the same shock effect as when we learned about Brian's past in the second book but it still made for a good storyline.
I'm somewhat disappointed that this is the final book in the series because I would love to hear more about the lives of the Burns family (Indigo's married life, Reuben's family and Yasmin's modeling career).
This book was provided to me by Donna Hausler of Baker Publishing Group; I received no monetary compensation for my honest review.
