"A Dream of Family" bv Jill Weatherholt is a fast read. The issues that the characters faced aren't fun but the book is "real life" and it is nice to read a book that isn't suspense full or one that might make you think you might need to take a break because the book is too long.

This book is about a book store owner struggling to pay bills and wanting a family. It is also about a man who struggles with how to forgive a family member who he learned lied for many years. It is always about a second chance.

I really liked how the two had different business but in the end they ended up being combined, guess you need to read to learn what the other business is and how they ended up being one.

Don’t compare yourself to others. This is your journey and yours alone.” I love this quote from the book. I think this is something we all could benefit from believing and applying to our own lives/Journey.

This book is a inspiration read and might just have readers start believing that their dreams are possible of becoming a reality. Yes, I know the book is fiction but remember " Fiction can be and is true somewhere in time and place and is "real life" sometimes.

I received a complimentary copy from the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.

More from Jill

Working in a library or a bookstore has always been a dream job of mine. As book bloggers and readers, you may have had that same dream.

Sadly, I’ve never made that dream come true. So instead, I created a fictitious character, Molly Morgan.  In A Dream of Family, Molly Morgan owns and operates a bookstore, so by writing her story, I was able to somewhat fulfill my dream of working in a job where I’m surrounded by books all day.

As a child growing up in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., I loved the bookmobile. Twice a month a small library on wheels rolled into the neighborhood and parked in front of our house. There was nothing better than to feel the wallop of arctic air the moment I climbed aboard. It was the perfect escape from the hot and sticky summer months. Like a time machine, the endless rows of books transported me to distant places. It was there I was introduced to The Box Car Children and Nancy Drew Mysteries. One stamp of black ink,and it was mine to devour for two weeks.


I haven’t seen a bookmobile since my childhood, but they still exist today. Thankfully, libraries and bookstores are still in our communities, offering wonderful programs to inspire young readers. But as I watch public libraries reduce their hours and bookstores close their doors, I’m grateful to have grown up in a time where bookmobiles traveled the streets of my neighborhood. Those days, my biggest decision during summer vacation was what book to take to the pool.
