The Living Room – Robert Whitlow

About this Book

Amy Clarke’s dreams are coming true—and that’s the problem.

Legal secretary by day, romance novelist by night, Amy Clarke lives with a precious secret. For years, she has traveled to a holy place in her dreams—a sublime place she calls the Living Room. When she awakes, her faith and energy are supernaturally restored. And when she dreams, she receives vibrant inspiration for her novels.

As she begins to write her third book, the nature of her dreams shifts. Gone are the literary signposts. Instead, her dreams are studded with scenes that foreshadow real life. Before long, the scenes begin to spill over into her waking hours too.

As Amy becomes entangled in a high stakes case at work, her visions take on a dark hue—implicating someone dear to her, causing her to question everything. And convincing her to trust someone with his own shadowy secrets.

Things are not always what they seem. But as fiction, dreams, and real life begin to overlap, Amy must stop dreaming and act to prevent tragedy.

My Review

I have loved Robert Whitlow’s books since I read The List. However, this one just didn’t “do it” for me. I had a tough time dealing with the main character, Amy Clarke. More than once in the story I wanted to slap her. This book unfortunately didn’t draw me in like most of Whitlow’s books do. HOWEVER, I am glad I finished the book (I almost gave up several times). The author did draw out some important concepts that every Christian needs to think about. I do believe God sometimes reveals things to His people through dreams, but not every dream is from God or needs to be shared with others. It also brought out some key words of encouragement regarding the importance of family.

Although, this was not my favorite Whitlow book, I will definitely pick up another Robert Whitlow book in the future.

Disclaimer: I did receive this book from the publisher, but I was under no obligation other than give my honest opinion.

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I've been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It's been fun to interact with authors.

Welcome! I appreciate your thoughts!
