Review: In Dreams Begin by Skyler White

At first I was expecting one thing and then was totally surprised by what actually came to be.

This is not your average paranormal, fit into a mold book. It has extreme depth and emotion that will leave you entwined in the story and not wanting to put it down.

Skyler has written a thought provoking piece of work that will leave you asking deep questions about love, life, and how far that love can go.

It's not a book that you can speed read...you have to soak it in and take your time. You'll get caught up in these characters before you know it.

I loved it!


About The Book:
(from Goodreads)

n a Victorian Ireland of magic, poetry, and rebellion, Ida Jameson, an amateur occultist, reaches out for power-but captures Laura Armstrong, a modern-day graphic artist, instead. When Ida channels Laura into the body of celebrated beauty and Irish freedom-fighter Maud Gonne, Laura falls in love with the young poet W. B. Yeats. Their love affair entwines with Irish history and weaves through Yeats' poetry- until Ida discovers something she wants more than magic in the subterranean spaces between Laura's time and her own. With Laura's Irish past threatening her orderly present, she and Yeats must find a way to make their love last over time, in changing bodies...or lose each other forever.

  1. The cover is intriguing but I like the way you described the story the best...something to be soked up. Just finished a book similar to that in nature. Doesn't happen too often, but when it does...pure magic. Thanks for sharing!
