Michelle Baron should be reveling in her new life in Sandy Cove, Oregon. From the outside it all looks idyllic. A newlywed settling into a quaint coastal town, her husband establishing himself as a junior partner in a law firm - what more could she want?
But a series of disturbing nightmares haunts Michelle. Her quest to understand these dreams leads her to the New World bookstore, where she begins a spiritual journey that will challenge her Christian heritage as well as her marriage.
Captivating characters, suspenseful story lines, and thought-provoking themes - best-selling author, Rosemary Hines crafts gripping and at times poignant tales of the challenges Christians face in contemporary culture. Known for her realistic portrayal of life and her sensitivity in tackling tough topics, her novels examine the prevalence of New Age beliefs and practices in today's world, the tragedy of suicide that touches families of all walks of life, the broken system of foster care, the need for dedicated teachers to reach out to troubled students, and the heartache of infertility as well as unwanted pregnancies and abortions. Never preachy but always leading the listener to a message of hope and redemption, Rosemary is a committed follower of Christ. The novels of the Sandy Cove series - Out of a Dream, Through the Tears, and Into Magnolia - convey profound Christian messages that touch hearts of believers and nonbelievers alike. Refreshingly honest and true to life, the characters resonate with readers and become their friends, and the story lines transition seamlessly from one novel to the next.

Great Christian fiction with a very real message!
Though it is a fictional story, the message of hope and deliverance are very real! Rosemary does a wonderful job of creating real life characters and situations, and developing them into a believable, engrossing story. For anyone looking for answers to questions about "new age" philosophies, this is an excellent resource to read and/or pass on.
I have read all the books so far in this series and was so delighted to be able to listen to the audio version. The reader did a great job!
When Michelle finds the truth that she has been searching for for most of her life.
No, but this one was excellent!
It would be Michelle's grandfather...I would love to hear him tell this story from his "bbehind the scenes" view of prayers, hearing God's voice and seeing the answers come.
An emotion and spiritual roller coaster.
Initially I didn't like the narrator's style of reading, but as I got engrossed in the storyline I noticed that she ceased to grate on me. Listening to this story was quite a different experience to physically reading the book (I had read this book quite a while before I listened to it). I found that I engaged better with the characters and emotions of the story. I found the story to be quite an emotional and spiritual roller coaster and I felt quite anxious with Michelle's meddling in New Age practices.
The story: This was a rather intriguing story where people eventually came to faith but via a range of detours along the way. This would be a good book to read by someone who is concerned about the choices people in their family are making with regards to their spirituality. Yoga, New Age, Tarot cards...all these avenues are explored by the seeker who is looking for spiritual fulfilment...but none of them really fill the void. Out of a Dream shows the power of persistent prayer by the grandparents and a peace which draws the others to them in a crisis situation. God is at work.
I received the audio book in exchange for an honest review.
I would recommend this book as a good book to read by someone who is concerned about the choices people in their family are making with regards to their spirituality.
