DW Davis has written a breathtaking trilogy called River Dreams. I fell in love with the characters, these stories and was sad to say goodbye when I had finished the last book. That is what a good piece of fiction does for you. Makes you long for more and that the author has accomplished!
The first book in the series is River Dream. I was swept away into this coming-of-age story from the opening chapter.
"Rhiannon has a rule against dating her best friend, Michael. Is it a rule meant to be broken, or a rule that will break her heart?
Rhiannon and sailing are Mike's two greatest loves. Sailing's the one thing he can always count on. Rhiannon's the one he can count on to keep him confused.
As high school begins, the new girl in town sets her sites on Mike. What will Rhiannon's rules cost her, and will she ever get to show Michael she really does love him, too?"
Dreams Change is book two in the series. It felt so good to catch up. This story was just as engaging as the first.
“Michael's dream of life with Rhiannon changes when she ignores his moment of direst need.
In the second book of the River Dream series, it's been four years since high school graduation and Michael's dream of a life with Rhiannon changes when she leaves him waiting as he struggles to overcome his wounds and restart his life. Maeve, his summer love from long ago, re-enters his life and a new dream begins to grow in his heart.”
The final book Dreams Adrift swept me off my feet. It was compelling, real and filled with real life emotions.
“Michael and Maeve are about to renew their vows in the big, beachside wedding Maeve always dreamed of when Rhiannon's unexpected arrival threatens to derail their plans. Will Rhiannon be able to win Mike back, or will his new love for Maeve be stronger than his old feelings for his high school sweetheart?
The fates once conspired to change Michael's dreams. Are they now conspiring to set his Dreams Adrift?”
"My writing reflects my memories growing up along the North Carolina coast near Wrightsville and Carolina Beaches. I left that area when I graduated high school and traveled half-way around the world and back collecting memories and experiences which help shape my characters. Now back in eastern North Carolina, I enjoy bringing to life characters whose adventures take place in my favorite part of the world."
