Summary

New York Times best-selling author Diane Chamberlain delivers a thrilling, mind-bending audiobook about one mother's journey to save her child. 

When Carly Sears, a young woman widowed by the Vietnam War, receives the news that her unborn baby girl has a heart defect, she is devastated. It is 1970, and she is told nothing can be done to help her child. But her brother-in-law, a physicist with a mysterious past, tells her that perhaps there is a way to save her baby. 

What he suggests is something that will shatter every preconceived notion Carly has. Something that will require a kind of strength and courage she never knew existed. Something that will mean an unimaginable leap of faith on Carly's part.  

And all for the love of her unborn child.  

The Dream Daughter is a rich, genre-spanning, breathtaking audiobook about one mother's quest to save her child, unite her family, and believe in the unbelievable. Diane Chamberlain pushes the boundaries of faith and science to deliver a story that listeners will never forget.

Stunning subject matter

I adored the narration and imagery of this book. The subject matter made me groan a bit when I heard what it was, but yet again Diane Chamberlain reeled me in and I was lost in the story. You never know what this writer will do next. Amazing.
