Title: What Dreams May Come
Author: Alana Terry
Genre: Christian Romance
Release Date: October 24, 2017
She’s got her heart set on becoming a missionary. He’s determined to recruit her for the job.
But is it possible to fall in love with someone you’ve never even met?
Susannah’s convinced that God has called her to the mission field. That’s why she’s serving him with single-minded focus in Orchard Grove, waiting for the day when she can leave her small town to take the gospel to the nations.
Is falling in love with her missionary recruiter part of God’s plan for her life or a distraction from the real goal?
Scott loves his life. Traveling the globe, offering spiritual support to missionaries around the world offers enough excitement that the loneliness hardly ever gets to him …
Until he receives an application from a young girl with a heart for the mission field as large as his own, a young girl he finds himself falling for even before they get the chance to meet face-to-face.
Unfortunately, a promise Susannah made to her family may tear her and Scott even farther apart than the miles that separate them.
Book one in an inspirational sweet romance series by award-winning Christian author Alana Terry, who has won awards from Women of Faith, The Book Club Network, Grace Awards, and several others, What Dreams May Come is based off of the author’s own experiences falling in love with (and eventually marrying) her missionary recruiter.

This was such a sweet, non traditional romantic story. I loved the fact that Susannah and Scott didn’t meet face to face until much later in the story. It was a great example to young couples today – you really need to get to know your potential partner before making a commitment such as marriage. Being separated like this allowed them to connect on a spiritual level. But what I found most intriguing was the way the author wrote from both of their POVs. So you really got to see what it was like for both characters. Their prayers, their struggles, and their conversations with God.
What does one do when they felt the Lord speaking to them so surely about something, such as a potential mate, but then all of a sudden you feel as if that’s not the right path to take? You really need to spend time with the Lord, and keep going, which is exactly what these characters did. Maybe not the way we would have, but in their own way. I enjoyed their natural conversations with the Lord. It flowed out of them as if they were speaking to a friend. Something we could all learn from.
Overall I thought this was a very sweet romance, and would recommend that all young adults read it, male and female. It would be a great book to share in a youth group setting as well. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Guest Post from Alana Terry
The cat’s out of the bag! Back in 2016, I wrote What Dreams May Come, a novel that was based on the way my husband and I fell in love … fourteen months before we ever met! It wasn’t until just before Christmas that I told Scott the romance novel I’d been writing was actually our true-to-life love story, and he was even more surprised than I hoped he’d be!
