About the Book</strong>
Indigo Burns is excited. Her wedding preparations to the man of her dreams are underway, her photography career is a success, and her family seems to be doing better than ever—all except her brother Reuben, who nobody has seen in years. But that’s about to change.
When Reuben decides to move back home to Jubilant, Texas, he hopes to find healing with his sisters. But Indigo isn’t so sure their relationship can be mended. And when younger sister Yasmin makes a life-altering choice, it seems like only a miracle can put the Burns family back together.
Will these siblings – and the rest of their family – ever be able to love unconditionally and release each other to live their dreams?
Book Review by Linda Fegins
“We are Family” was a popular song by the Pointer Sisters which extolled the importance of the family bond. Melvin Chapman in a speech given at Mercy College in Detroit, Michigan made a great point that is demonstrated in “Dreams That Won’t Die”. He stated, “The uneasy world of family life-where the greatest can fail and the humblest succeed”. The novel opens with Reuben Burns finally returning home after being absent from the family for several years. After completing college he sought to discover a new future apart from the family, and to run away from the secrets of the past. Indigo, his sister, is planning her wedding, and expresses anger and frustration over her brother Reuben’s sudden return to the family and the “adoration” this “prodigal son” receives from their parents. Reuben returns home to Jubilant, Texas to regain a relationship with his sisters and to overcome demons from the past which dampen his hopes and dreams. Their younger sister Yasmin decides to realize hers dreams, regardless of the cost.
This book shows the bonds between members of a family and how secrets can often hurt more than they heal. Through the realistic and well developed characters ,we see how a family painfully struggles to finally confront issues, yet grows to learn the true meaning of unconditional love. The story line started off a little slow, but it was an enjoyable and inspirational book.
