Unspoken Dreams - Book Review
"Carol Bennett writes a stunning mystery-thriller. Her chilling
entrance is one I have encountered only rarely in a book.
Here, we have a victim who looks like he had been
swarmed by bees in the middle of a storm, but the reader is
lead to believe that it was something much more ominous
and that it is about to get worse.
There are many characters in the tale, but a group of
teenagers that are about to graduate from high school
(Mike, Jack, Jared, Jenny, Tracy, Dana, Alan) and Sheriff
Nate are the main characters. The lead character, Mike, is
more like a father figure for the group in that he concerns
himself with the needs of his friends and becomes a
compassionate leader to his community during an
emergency. His girlfriend Dana, as a sweet and supportive
character, gives him strength. Shy, Jenny who is blooming
into a beautiful girl has a crush on Mike's friend Jack, which
sends Alan into a jealous frenzy. Though James and Tracy
are dating, their buddy Jared holds a secret fondness for
Carol did a wonderful job in portraying the characters in
Unspoken Dreams. I was so involved in the story that by the
time Mike finally broke down in grief for his friends' death, I
had tears running down my cheeks - this was less than 2
dozen pages into the book! Mike's humorous relationship
with his parents had me laughing aloud. And I felt real pity
for Alan's situation.
An excellent read for those who love a good thriller with a
solid rate of tension throughout the book."
