Summary
  • "A woman in the 1960s wrestles to reconcile her daily life as a single bookstore owner with the alternate reality she suddenly begins to dream about each night, in which she is a happily married wife and mother"--
  • Denver, 1961. Kitty Miller has come to terms with her unconventional single life, running a bookshop she runs with her best friend, Frieda; coming and going as she pleases. There was a man once, a doctor named Kevin, but it didn't quite work out the way Kitty had hoped. Then the dreams begin.... Denver, 1963: Katharyn Andersson is married to Lars; they have beautiful children, an elegant home, and good friends-- but it only exists when she sleeps. And with each visit, the more irresistibly real her "dream" life becomes. Can she choose which life she wants... as the lines between her worlds begin to blur... ?
Summary
