This book has it all. The family lives in a fairytale compound high above the seacoast of the tropical island of St. Lucia. She has found the love of her life in Andre Demontagne, has three darling children and a flourishing career. But like women who struggle with “having it all”, she faces loss as her career, her husband’s career and the intensity of her children threaten the future of her marriage and her children.

A Circle of Dreams

Annie Rogers
Bivens and Jensen Publishing (2006)
ISBN 0977018318
Reviewed by Paige Lovitt for Reader Views (5/06)

It was such a pleasure to read this sequel to “A Dream Across Time.” The husband and wife writing team that composes Annie Rogers have done a wonderful job writing another paranormal romance. When I read the first book, I really felt like I was on the island of St. Lucia with these characters. In “A Circle of Dreams” I felt like I had returned to the island and was visiting close friends. The characters feel so real to you, that they do feel like they are alive.

The story returns to the island of St. Lucia where Jamie and Andre Demontagne now have three children. Each child has a special paranormal gift. The youngest child, Philippe was named after an ancestor who had been lost, as a child, during the French Revolution, two hundred years before. The ghost of his mother, Anne-Cecile Diamont confuses this child with the one that she lost. As Philippe is being pulled into the past, his family fights to save him. His sisters use their special gifts to try to keep him in the present.

The paranormal touches in the story keep it really interesting; however, there are also real present day issues such as the lagging romance between Jamie and Andre. As they deal with the crisis involving their child, they also have to deal with making their relationship work around their modern day lifestyles, such as both holding two busy careers and parenting. Their children are precocious and adorable. I laughed out loud at some of their exploits. The extended family and friends around them also add a great deal of richness to the novel. I missed them and was so glad that they were included in this story.

This second novel in the Demontagne Saga stands well on its own. I would recommend reading “A Dream Across Time” first, but it is not necessary, as the authors manage to catch you up on the story without having to go back. You really don’t want to miss out on either!
