Synopsis of book:
In the first novel of the Dream Trilogy, Nora Roberts begins the story of three women who shared a home and a childhood—but grew to fulfill their own unique destinies…
Margo, Kate and Laura were brought up like sisters amidst the peerless grandeur of Templeton House. But it was Margo whose dreams first took her far away . . .
Margo Sullivan had everything a young woman could ask for. But while growing up along the rocky cliffs of Monterey, she couldn’t help but dream of bigger things. The daughter of the Templeton’s stern Irish housekeeper, Margo had been treated like a member of the family. Deep down, she knew that money could not buy the thing she craved most—her mother’s acceptance.
Maybe things would be different if she could be sweet like Laura—or had Kate’s shrewd head for business. But all Margo knew how to do was be Margo, and that meant doing things her own way—no matter what the consequences . . .
Why I read this book: I picked up this book because the cover caught my eye. I have also read a couple of other books by this author and have really enjoyed them.
What I did like: I liked the theme behind this book. Once again we have a series of book by Nora the centers around the close friendship of three friends and we one friend that is the main character in this story, which I enjoy. 
What I didn't like: I did not like the way that the main character Margo was such a "flighty" person. It seemed like no matter what Josh or anyone would do for her should would push away the chance to be happy. This book seemed to have a kind of depressing feel to it at times because of Margo always looking for more. 
Overall Impression: I enjoyed this book as was hoping for a happy ending but at times I was wondering if this would happen. I liked how Josh was always trying to make things better for Margo. It seems Margo wanted to leave a life that would have been "normal" and good for her to replace something she was missing. She was always missing having a dad and due to this she was making reckless decisions which ended putting her in a bad situation. In the background we learn a little about her friends who are considered her sisters and some of their problems. I look forward to the rest of this series and hope to read more about her "sisters" 4 stars
