About the Book . . .

Eight years after the unsolved disappearance of her boyfriend Max Adair, archaeologist Isabel Griffin has managed to move on and rebuild her life with her young daughter, Finn, her last tie to Max. But after a series of strange incidents, Isabel begins to wonder if Max might still be alive somewhere, trying to communicate with her. She does not realize the where isn’t the problem—it’s the when.

Max has slipped through time and place, landing on his ancestral family plantation in 1816 Barbados, on the eve of a historic slave uprising. As Isabel searches for answers, Max must figure out not only how to survive the violence to come, but how to get back to his own century, the woman he loves, and the daughter he has only ever met in his dreams.

Poignant and bittersweet, yet ultimately uplifting, THE DREAM KEEPER’S DAUGHTER is an unforgettable love story that transcends time and place, revealing the seemingly impossible leaps of faith love can inspire. With her haunting, romantic prose, Emily Colin continues to prove that she is a writer to watch—and read voraciously.
