Any Dream Will Do Reviews
Another classically fun novel by Debbie Macomber. It's an easy, fast read with a unique story about a young woman who spends three years in prison and where her life takes her when she gets out. A perfect summer read.
This was a quick read for me. I enjoyed the story and did not mind the religious tones at all. I normally shy away from any book that contains too much religion. It can get in the way of the story, in my opinion.
But, this book was a beautifully written story about starting over and forgiveness and it really struck a chord in my heart and my thinking. The characters were well developed from Shay to the most minor character. I felt a part of the story which is rare.

I don't know how she does it but EVERY book I've read written by this woman leaves me with a feeling of being engulfed in a huge hug. What more can I say.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Ballantine Books for an ARC in exchange for my honest opinion.
Did not finish - overwhelming Christian themes plus unbelievable set up in the beginning plus the overall terrible Hallmark movie vibe drove me away from this book. There are better Macomber books to read than this, and I was disappointed.
I listened to the first two books in this series and I really enjoyed them. the third book not so much. this book not at all. the only reason I gave it two stars was because I just could not bring myself to give one star to Debbie Macomber. I am really shocked at the rave reviews that this book has gotten. you all must be hard core Debbie Macomber fans because I cannot think of anything that I liked about this book. it was extremely predictable and so corny. I'm sorry I can't say an ...more
A few months ago I was talking to an acquaintance about books and she mentioned how much she likes Debbie Macomber because the books make her happy and she feels "safe" reading them. I'll definitely need to point her towards this book because I know she'd love it.
I too enjoy this author, and I liked this one and its focus on basically just the main characters and two points of view (although the side characters were lovely). Shay was a great protagonist - she had been through a lot and felt wort ...more
Any Dream Will Do
This isn't my usual type of read but I really enjoyed reading this story. It's such a sweet and eye opening read.
It shows you how much others judge people due to their pasts.
It show that people are able to change and that people deserve second chances.
This story was similiar to all of those lifetime movies my mother watched when I was younger. This was such an inspirational read it just warms your heart.
Thanks NetGalley for the arc in exchange for my ho ...more
