Book Summary

Will love bloom just as sweet the second time around?

Losing her husband has taught Gloria more than anything else how to rely on God.

His grace alone gave her the strength to raise her children — a sweet angel with cerebral palsy as well as a daughter who wants nothing more than to serve God as a missionary on foreign soil.

Gloria couldn’t be prouder of her girls, but a future without them both by her side sounds empty and hollow.

When God thrusts a godly man like Derek into her path, Gloria isn’t sure she’s ready to jump headfirst into a relationship.

But maybe God’s giving her the chance for a happily ever after … a second time around.

Guest Post from Alana

Hey everyone! Fall is here. Our family had a great summer. Everything in Alaska is gorgeous in the summertime. One of my favorite childhood memories that my husband and I have introduced our kids to is Vacation Bible School (VBS). With so many volunteers giving of their time to build relationships with each other and the kids who attend, it’s a week filled with so many great Jesus moments. I thought it would be fun to write a book about VBS. Dare to Dream Again is about two VBS volunteers who not only become friends, but just may dare to fall in love.

Book Review by Bree Herron

I really love second chances at love stories. There is something about the hope in the characters, and the realization that there can be love again that makes my heart burst. Alana Terry has a magical touch to these stories and I found myself really feeling connected to Gloria.Gloria is unsure of what the new path God is leading her down is right, but as we all know we should trust in God’s process and abilities to take us where we need to go. This story is heart warming, touching and a perfect weekend read.
