For some, nightmares come true.
Behind the one of the many locked doors in Amanda's mind, a background noise squawks like a TV left on, too loud, and continuously replaying the same premonition dream.
On the surface, she's living the life she has always wanted, the one she's worked hard for; a satisfying career, married, owns a comfortable home with a backyard just big enough to throw a Frisbee.
She's managed to avoid the darkest shadows where the demons of a traumatic childhood lurk, where nightmares and premonitions of brutal and unstoppable events hide.
She turned thirty-two on Christmas.
On a routine morning run, the scent of honeysuckle blooming in the neighbor's yard hits like a time stamp on the dream.
Everything turns upside down within a matter of days, and a tsunami of tragic events causes the thin walls between reality and imagination to blur with sadistic twists.
Amanda heads down a dangerous path, her mind dangling from a damaged thread. Forcing her to reevaluate everything as she fights to survive.
She can no longer ignore the dream.
The clock is ticking on the year of her death.

Writing as Beautiful as the Cover
...a terrific novel about dreams, both literal and metaphorical. It is about a complicated woman living a complicated life.
From the opening page as Amanda experiences a lucid dream, we’re thrown into a multi-sensory world, seeing the shadow of black branches against a violet sky, hearing the buzz of insects, smelling the scent of honeysuckle, feeling the chill of cold dew om our bare feet. And from the first pages we also know that Amanda may long for a normal life but she is ANYTHING but normal.
This is a surprising book. As the story unfolds, it expands, brought alive by Redman’s beautifully vivid writing. Amanda relates how she feels when “a word hits with the force of an arrow with a bone-splitting fixed blade broadhead” and we know EXACTLY how that feels.
This is the first in a series, and once you’ve read this one, you will be so so pleased that there are more books to read.
