Publisher's Summary

Leslie Harris's visit to her upstate New York lakeside family home after a decade of triumphs and disappointment resembles a nightmare more than the quiet vacation she'd hoped for. The unexpected appearance of much-changed town girl, Devon Weber, with whom Leslie shares a secret that haunts them both, rekindles an old heart ache - and reminds Leslie of just why she left.
Even though her attraction to Dev comes roaring back, the one thing Leslie doesn't want is to pick up where they left off, especially not when she already has just the life she wants - a rewarding high-power law practice, a condo in Manhattan, and a lover who satisfies her without demanding the intimacy Leslie avoids. Unfortunately, environmental biologist Devon Weber doesn't play by Leslie's rules. Two women whose lives turned out far differently than they'd once imagined discover that sometimes the shape of the future can only be found in the past - and love is strongest - When Dreams Tremble.


Audible Editor Reviews

Passionate and deeply intimate, When Dreams Tremble is a story of an old love, rekindled. Leslie Harris thinks she has her life together until she runs into an old girlhood crush, the mysterious Devon Weber. Suddenly her relaxing vacation has turned into something far more serious.… Coleen Marlo performs Radclyffe's romantic work with all of the requisite flourishes and emotion. Marlo's tone is charming and relatable, just the type of performer a romantic thriller such as this deserves!

I've been hearing about Radclyffe for years and after being verbally harassed by a mentor type lesbian i gave in and ordered one. So hey, the lady can write pretty well and tells a story that pulls you in; those are pretty positive. Unfortunately that isn't enough to save this selection from mediocrity.
I'm a 22 yr. old poly amorous female who is in possession of no writing skills whatsoever; (spellcheck i love you.) seriously i wish with everything i have that i could write; because all non- hetero woman writers are older than my parents, which is a major problem when they attempt to write young. The whole sex is only about love thing reminds me more of my grandparents world. If i was in Devon's position those three weeks I would have totally hit it with Natalie; my friends agree.
Speaking of Devon; my god what a lame pathetic wimp of a woman. Leslie has been either ignoring her or letting her down since they were in high school but she still hangs around waiting for Leslie to toss her a few scraps. If you're a woman and can relate to this character then i feel sorry for you. Particularly as it applies to Leslie.
Leslie is a scared pathetic excuse for a woman in her own way; except that she's also mean, thoughtless, and so totally self-centered it's hard to believe a woman couldn't get over her in 15 minutes; much less 15 years. I have seriously never met anyone out of their teens who couldn't get over a high school crush. Especially one who'd treated her the way Leslie treated Devon.
Oh yeah, add to that the overwrought sex scenes and i'll have to let Janet know that i'm officially an unbeliever when it comes to this author. Stay Cool

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were believable and the performance was really good. I find myself listening to it again and again.
