LOVE Inspired books are a wonderful book series. I always enjoying reading books published by LOVE Inspired and the various authors who write them. A Dream of Family by Jill Weatherholt is the most recent book in the series that I had the pleasure of reading. 

Molly Morgan has always dreamed of being a parent. She is single woman who runs a Bookstore. She has recently started the adoption process after meeting a little girl named Grace. Grace and Molly clicked upon first meeting one another. Molly's business takes a downfall when a larger Bookstore opens nearby. The loss of income jeopardizes the adoption. Derek McKinney is someone who Molly knows very well. He has a puppy that Grace realy wants. He is also a successful Businessman. He wants to help Molly and Grace become a family. The only thing hindering this is the fact that he and Molly have a troubled past. Molly and Derek must make amends and forgive the past. Can Molly and Derek move forward in life and can forgiveness happen? Will Molly and Grace become a family? How does Derek help the Dream Family happen?

I enjoyed this book from the first few pages and couldn't put it down until I finished it. There was so much going on in this short book, it was a definite page turner. I really like that Molly and Derek worked together to help get Grace a family. The fact that they were able to overcome their past and help Dreams come true was outstanding. I LOVE Bookstores, so it made me joyful that the main character owned a Bookstore. The theme of Adoption, creating a family, and forgiveness were all very well written. A WONDERFUL Storyline and BOOK!

More from Jill

Working in a library or a bookstore has always been a dream job of mine. As book bloggers and readers, you may have had that same dream.

Sadly, I’ve never made that dream come true. So instead, I created a fictitious character, Molly Morgan.  In A Dream of Family, Molly Morgan owns and operates a bookstore, so by writing her story, I was able to somewhat fulfill my dream of working in a job where I’m surrounded by books all day.

As a child growing up in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., I loved the bookmobile. Twice a month a small library on wheels rolled into the neighborhood and parked in front of our house. There was nothing better than to feel the wallop of arctic air the moment I climbed aboard. It was the perfect escape from the hot and sticky summer months. Like a time machine, the endless rows of books transported me to distant places. It was there I was introduced to The Box Car Children and Nancy Drew Mysteries. One stamp of black ink,and it was mine to devour for two weeks.


I haven’t seen a bookmobile since my childhood, but they still exist today. Thankfully, libraries and bookstores are still in our communities, offering wonderful programs to inspire young readers. But as I watch public libraries reduce their hours and bookstores close their doors, I’m grateful to have grown up in a time where bookmobiles traveled the streets of my neighborhood. Those days, my biggest decision during summer vacation was what book to take to the pool.
