Amy Clarke's dreams are coming true - and that's the problem. Legal secretary by day, romance novelist by night, Amy Clarke lives with a precious secret. For years, she has traveled to a holy place in her dreams - a sublime place she calls the Living Room. When she awakes, her faith and energy are supernaturally restored. And when she dreams, she receives vibrant inspiration for her novels. As she begins to write her third book, the nature of her dreams shifts. Gone are the literary signposts. Instead, her dreams are studded with scenes that foreshadow real life. Before long, the scenes begin to spill over into her waking hours, too. As Amy becomes entangled in a high-stakes case at work, her visions take on a dark hue - implicating someone dear to her, causing her to question everything. And convincing her to trust someone with his own shadowy secrets. Things are not always what they seem. But as fiction, dreams, and real life begin to overlap, Amy must stop dreaming and act to prevent tragedy.

I absolutely LOVE Robert Whitlow! I love his books, his thoughts, his words, his wisdom. What I don't like, especially in this book, is the storyteller. This is a book with a female as a main character. It should have been read by a female. The narrator reads as if he's reading a book, not as if he's trying to make characters come alive through his narration. Sometimes a good book can be weakened by the person relating it to the public, such as this one.
I loved the authenticity of the move of the Holy Spirit and the characters. Whitlow is one of my favorite authors in any genre. However, Heath McClure's poor performance almost ruined the book for me. I won't purchase anything he narrates. I wanted to get The Confession until I saw that McClure was the narrator. Get one of your former narrators Mr. Whitlow. Your wonderful writing is being badly served.
Poor timing and inflections. My third grade readers could do a better narration.
Be filled with the Holy Spirit!
Robert Whitlow is a wonderful writer. I captures the nuances of his characters in such a truthful manner. His plots captivate and absorb one. Bravo Mr. Whitlow!
I liked the concept but it was very Teachy, a lot of repeated information. I think it's hard for an author to write about another author because we learned about the process in depth and it interrupted the flow of the story. The performance also came off as someone reading a book not bringing it to life.
