The Book: The Dream You Make
The Author: Christine Nolfi
After her nephew’s world is destroyed in a burst of gunfire, Annie receives temporary custody of five-year-old Dillon. Now the greenhouse she managed with her late father isn’t bringing in enough money. If she doesn’t get her financial house in order, a judge will allow a couple in Baltimore to adopt Dillon–and remove him from her life forever.
When Annie takes a second job at Rowe Marketing, the instant attraction she shares with Michael Rowe is a circumstance she can’t risk. But should she walk away from a love sure to last a lifetime?
Fresh, heartwarming and inspiring, The Dream You Make reveals that hope always carries the promise of new beginnings.
About the Author: Some writers are gifted with an unusual life and I’m certainly one of those. I’ve lived in Ohio, Virginia, California, Utah and now South Carolina. In college I was featured on the front page of the Houston Post for a lark that erased all my debt. I met my four adopted children for the first time in the sweltering heat of the tropics. I helped build several companies and was lucky enough to earn a living doing what I love best–writing–in a PR firm I owned.
In 2004 I made the wisest and most irrational decision of my life–I began writing fiction full-time. All those years of hard work pay off daily in sweet notes and comments by readers. Please continue the mail, tweets and comments on FaceBook, GoodReads and other sites. I cherish your support and love chatting with readers.

Review by Vonda Norwood: I honestly loved reading every chapter of this story!!! There are a few hard lessons and decisions explored in this tale of what love should be, could be and finally is.
A few tears were shed while I had to wonder, how much could a person take and still forgive and then trust… Emotionally tense and scary experiencing the kind of fear that which can cause a person to lose what is the best thing in the world for ’em.
This story’s gonna live inside of my heart, forever! Luckily not concealed. I surely loved the characters! Except when I was mad at ’em! Prepare for your emotions to be all over the freakin place as you read. If I wasn’t trying not to cry, I was smiling and trying not to cry about it! This is a very emotional, loving story!!!
Wonderful work! A Wonderful way to experience and express love.
