Ann Marie Bryan - Dream Again - Front CoverOne random day. One burst of laughter. One perfect moment. That’s all it takes for Gianna Barrett to capture Carter McIntosh’s attention—and his heart. His whole life has been a series of miracles, so this falls right in line. If only it were that simple. The object of his desire refuses to give him the time of day. Not deterred, Carter is sure he’s ready to put his heart on the line for love. Big mistake. He isn’t quite prepared and finds himself wrestling a soul-deep hurt into submission.

“There has been an accident….”

That devastating revelation shattered Gianna’s life, and in that one chaotic moment, everything she had was taken away. She has spent years carefully crafting her new normal, so there is no way Carter can just insert himself into her life. The fight is on but not for long. Their attraction is instant, and before she knows it, all her cynicism goes out the door.

When Gianna learns more about Carter’s life, she gets a better understanding of her beginning. As she starts her journey to healing, she uncovers Carter’s startling secret. In the days that follow, she struggles with feelings of regret, fueling her natural tendency to retreat. But the flames of desire burn hot and it’s not easy to break their unexpected connection. As the past reaches for them, they soon realize that to move forward, they must look back. Will they allow God to be the anchor they so desperately need—before it’s too late? For all they ever wanted was to be loved.

"Dream Again" by  Ann Marie Bryan

"Dream Again" by  Ann Marie Bryan is a story filled with the aftereffects of loss, one of the characters through death, the other a relationship gone wrong, trusts and love. 

This is a story about keeping secrets isn't a good thing! 

I really liked that this story is about a book editor and a writer. What could be better for a reader than to read about an author and the editor. But I wonder does an editor really research out an area the writer is writing about? If not, the book is fiction right?  It could happen which makes this book believable. 

As the title suggests this is a second chance at love novel! 

This story is a real heart warming "True to Life" story.

Again, fiction has spoken to me, I am going top share two passages from the book and see if they speak to you as well. " The enemy knows your potential,  and that is why he tried to you snuff you out,"..... 

"Don't let your brokenness take you off course of your destiny. Let it go and be healed. God kept you here because there's oil in you. Yes, there's oil in you."  

#2 "When suffering slaps you in the face, you see exactly what you're made of" ..... The great thing is that the Lord gave me enough for the journey, ands He made sure I had more than enough to sustain me wherever He needs me to be.

A fun fact on why I like to say that fiction is real life.The female character in this book is a fan of Jolly Ranchers. I also am a fan. I have a bag by my side when ever I am reading  because the characters in the books are always eating and the meals described makes me hungry so  I like to be prepared.

The above statement,I posted this on my Facebook page about this book “.

I am glad that this book clearly points out that depression isn’t something to be ashamed of but that it is something that can be overcome if we give it to God.

I was given a contemporary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.

More from Ann Marie

I am super excited that you are a part of this amazing Dream Againtour. I use the words—emotional, inspirational, compelling, and romantic—to describe my writing style. I love to put readers in the heart of the story to give them a chance to think how they would react in similar situations.


It was therapeutic for me to write Dream Again. Last year, my mom passed, so it was a year of grieving and adjusting for me. While I was going through, I decided to write a story about someone who suffered the loss of a parent. I wrapped that experience into a beautiful love story, Dream Again, which gives hope while showing the awesome power of God in the lives of two hurting people.


I hope you will enjoy reading Dream Again as much as I have enjoyed writing it. In this novel, you will witness the incredible transformative power of love in the lives of Carter McIntosh and Gianna Barrett as they lift their faith and develop the courage and tenacity to leave the past behind. Dream Againis laced with love, faith, friendship, and a sense of community, while demonstrating God’s desire to free people from life-altering events. I pray that you will catch a glimpse of God moving through time to secure the future of those He loves.


Thank you for touring with me and for taking the time to read Dream Again. Stay victorious!
