Publisher's Summary

When Caroline Sears receives the news that her unborn baby girl has a heart defect, she is devastated. It is 1970, and it seems that nothing can be done. But her brother-in-law, a physicist, tells her that perhaps there is. Hunter had appeared in their lives just a few years before - and his appearance was as mysterious as his past. With no family, no friends, and a background shrouded in secrets, Hunter embraced the Sears family and never looked back.

Now, Hunter is telling her that something can be done about her baby’s heart. Something that will shatter every preconception Caroline has. Something that will require a kind of strength and courage she never knew existed. Something that will mean a mind-bending leap of faith on Caroline’s part.

And all for the love of her unborn child.

The Dream Daughter sees Diane Chamberlain push the boundaries to deliver a novel that you will never forget.

Absolutely wonderful

I listened to this towards the end of the year and vote it my best book of 2018. It was not what I was expecting, better than I ever could have imagined and kept me clicking that play button so I could listen some more.
Time travel well done, and a cracking good story with a perfect ending.

Amazing book but an emotion rollercoaster

This is a really lovely book but oh my god does it take you through a lot of different emotions and have you on the edge of your seat.

Really good read/ listen don’t read the middle of the book just before bed or you will never sleep ( or maybe that’s just me) very gripping book.

Fantastic Author haven’t found the book I do not want yet.

Loved this book

Diane Chamberlain is a new author for me & I’m really enjoying the stories - this one reminds me of a Stephen King novel.

Loved it

It was a wonderful, interesting story. Very entertaining, always kept me wondering what's going to happen next.
Great listen if one just wants to relax and escape from the reality of everyday life.

Beautiful, heart warming story ❤️

I listen to at least one audio week per week and very rarely write a review but this book was so beautiful and I would thoroughly recommend it! Story was very believable with brilliant, relatable characters. Finished this in 3 days. I have read another few books by this author and I will look out for more.

Don't often do 5 star....

Didn't really sound like my kind of book, but I can't say how much I enjoyed it! Interesting, quirky, sad and uplifting, should be compulsory reading for all mothers/daughters.

Heart-warming and did not want it to end!

Just the most extraordinary story. From start to finish I found myself lost in the journey Carly took. I could not stop listening, This would make a beautiful film and I also hope for a book sequel.
