About the Book

Title: What Dreams May Come

Author: Alana Terry

Genre: Christian Romance

Release Date: October 24, 2017

She’s got her heart set on becoming a missionary. He’s determined to recruit her for the job. But is it possible to fall in love with someone you’ve never even met?

Susannah’s convinced that God has called her to the mission field. That’s why she’s serving him with single-minded focus in Orchard Grove, waiting for the day when she can leave her small town to take the gospel to the nations.

Is falling in love with her missionary recruiter part of God’s plan for her life or a distraction from the real goal?

Scott loves his life. Traveling the globe, offering spiritual support to missionaries around the world offers enough excitement that the loneliness hardly ever gets to him …

Until he receives an application from a young girl with a heart for the mission field as large as his own, a young girl he finds himself falling for even before they get the chance to meet face-to-face.

Unfortunately, a promise Susannah made to her family may tear her and Scott even farther apart than the miles that separate them.

Book one in an inspirational sweet romance series by award-winning Christian author Alana Terry, who has won awards from Women of Faith, The Book Club Network, Grace Awards, and several others, What Dreams May Come is based off of the author’s own experiences falling in love with (and eventually marrying) her missionary recruiter.

Guest Post from Alana Terry

The cat’s out of the bag! Back in 2016, I wrote What Dreams May Come, a novel that was based on the way my husband and I fell in love … fourteen months before we ever met! It wasn’t until just before Christmas that I told Scott the romance novel I’d been writing was actually our true-to-life love story, and he was even more surprised than I hoped he’d be! Watch the video to see his reaction.

My Review

What Dreams May Come is laced with Bible principles and scriptural insight. It's a story of struggles, pain, loss, fulfillment, and trust in the Lord.

I loved the character of Kitty and how the author made her come to life for me, even though she didn't have a speaking voice. Susannah's love of her special needs sister and how she put everything on hold to be her caregiver after her Mother died, was admirable and very inspirational. She became real to me based on the everyday struggles and her questioning of God's purpose for her life.


The character of Scott was also well-developed and he was portrayed as a man who loved the Lord and a person with immense patience. His love for Susannah never faltered even though he waited for God's timing to finally act on the relationship.


What Dreams May Come ws a very enjoyable and heartwarming read.
