Kitty finds herself dreaming of another world, one where she met the man of her dreams and had the family she always wanted, sort of. She begins to struggle to determine which world is the reality and which is the dream. Could she be running from something she doesn’t want to face? Between the two worlds, Kitty begins to learn new things about herself and discover there are things we wish to escape, but cannot and need to learn how to process and deal with the properly before she is lost within herself.
I was a little skeptical about this book because it is outside of my normal genre of reading material, but it sounded interested and sometimes it is good to step outside of your norm. I have to say this book was a well written novel. It was easy to tell when the scenes switched realities as Kitty expressed concern about it when she would awake or go to sleep, those are good transition points for something like this. There were some twists and surprises such as her son having Autism, though I kind of wish more was done with this than what readers see. There was a wide range of possibilities that could have happened but didn’t. The book seemed to focus on one aspect of the disorder rather than other aspects. It did a good job portraying the mindset regarding how others viewed Autism in the 1950’s which is vastly different from what we know today.
