Petrakis family was legendary for power, wealth, adoration, but as with
many Greeks, the family was what was all important. Alex Petrakis,
world famous playwright, is locked in a coma after an accident, and his
brother knows that if there is someone who can reach him, it is his friend
and co-worker Vanessa.
specialist Dr. Vanessa Koures refused to help -- working day and night
with 1 patient would mean abandoning many less fortunate patients.
So, grandfather Patrykus declares he will build the clinic she has been
working to raise funds for if she will try.
with his body confined to a hospital bed, Alex's mind reached out to hers,
forming a powerful psychic bond and he begins to heal. They share
much of themselves but she realizes she must leave him to force him to
face the real world now.
in the real world, Alex tries to re-establish the closeness they had while
he was in a coma. Can he learn to share her and her gifts with others?
Can she trust in what they had or is it just a fleeting dream?
is something about the special psychic connection -- the "in the middle
of the night" closeness that hooked me. Understanding each other
wasn't enough, they had to rebuild this again in the real world.
This is the first DREAMSCAPE that I read and it had me looking for the
logo and other books in this theme. It is one of my "comfort books"
on my keeper shelf.
