Out of A Dream By Rosemary Hines - Christian Spiritual Novel




After all the business and marketing books I have been reading recently I decided it was time I read something completely different. And this book is certainly different as it is a superbly written spiritual novel. 

The plot is the story of Michelle, a young married woman living in a picture postcard town in America. However, all is not well in her world. She is having a series of disturbing dreams and she is in a frantic search to find out what they mean. In her spiritual quest she turns to new age thinking and tarot to help her solve the mystery and free her from the horror of her dreams. However, God has his hand on Michelle and will not let go.

This is essentially a book of good versus evil, as old as time itself. However, Rosemary Hines has created a real page turner. The characters are superbly crafted and painfully real. Michelle, the central character is shown with all her inner thoughts and struggles. This makes her all the more interesting. Hines shows a real insight into the human psyche.  This is not a long book but Hines has used every word in it carefully to ensure that every page is packed with interest and intrigue. I loved this book. It is the first in a series and I am looking forward to reading the next one already.

I would highly recommend this book for anyone who likes a well plotted, well written, Christian novel. You will not be disappointed.

I was given a copy of this book by the author for review purposes. However, I was not a at any time asked to provide a positive review. I have done so based on my reading, and enjoyment, of this book.

I will be back soon with a review of another great book. Watch this space to find out what the next one out of the bag will be. I look forward to spending more time with you then.

  2. This novel sounds intriguing - it may even be the kind of book I once wanted to write, until my story evolved into something else. Thank you for reviewing it & I will add it to my to-read list.
