A new fiction book is “Good Dream” by Donna VanLiere. Still single and in her early 30’s, Ivorie Walker is considered an old maid – a label that she takes with good humor and a grain of salt. When her mother dies, she finds herself lost in a kind of loneliness that she hadn’t expected. Then a feral, dirty-faced boy comes into her life. She’s determined to find out who he is because something about him haunts her, but in seeking answers, she unleashes a firestorm in the town – a community that wants secrets to stay secret.
