Publisher's Summary

Meriel grows up in England a tomboy, helping her beloved grandfather with DIY. At school she discovers a talent and loves for art, but her mother forces her to become an accountant. She’s good at that, too, but her heart isn’t in it. Ben and his wife have a dream of designing a country retreat, but when she’s killed in an accident, he’s left to struggle on alone. After her grandpa dies, Meriel immigrates to Australia, where she meets Ben. They are very different characters, but when circumstances force them to share a house, they can no longer deny the attraction. There are many obstacles to overcome, but can Ben and Meriel ultimately find a way to unite their dreams?

Wonderfully enjoyable story.

Good characters, strong male and female characters. Wide range of character types, as well. Lovely ending. Interesting from start to finish.

Likable Characters, Boring Story

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was somewhat entertaining and didn't require a lot of focus.

Would you recommend Licence to Dream to your friends? Why or why not?


What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The performance was good.

Could you see Licence to Dream being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No...maybe a short-lived one.

I must admit I was disapointed with this one from Anna Jacobs. I was trying to do something else, even so it did not grab my attention from the start unfortunately.

I have always been a lover of Anna Jacobs books and have never been dissappointed in them until now! This is the most boring book ever.
