Synopsis:  
Australian Denny Banister had it all; a successful career, a passion for the guitar, and Sonya - the love of his life. Tragically, Denny is struck down with inoperable cancer.

Andy DeVries has almost nothing; alienated from his family, moving through a dangerous Chicago underworld dealing in drugs, battling addiction while keeping a wavering hold on the only thing that matters to him: a place at a prestigious conservatory for classical guitar in Chicago.

As Andy recovers from a near fatal overdose, he is plagued by dreams - memories of a love he has never felt, and a life he's never lived. Driven by the need for redemption and by the love for a woman he's never met, he begins a quest to find her, knowing her only by the memories of a stranger and the dreams of a place called Hambledown...


My Review:   
I would like to start by saying that although I generally like romance/fantasy, I some how had some trouble getting into this book. 

It took me some time to read and some of the material was a bit much for my taste. I do think the author Dean Mayes had some great chapters here and I hope to read other writing of his. 

Even though this was not for me, I would recommend that you read it for yourself. Others may like it more so than me. 

And for the reasons above I am giving a Breath of Life rating of:


      Three Clock Rating!

Disclosure: I received this book in exchange for my review. The opinions are mine. And your opinion may differ.
