A Dream Come True by Maureen Lee is a pleasant story about Maggie, a woman in her early forties whose life has become dull and routine. She has been married for about twenty years but her husband has lost interest in the relationship. Through a chance meeting with a co-worker in another office, Maggie’s life is turned around. She starts thinking about herself, her life and her career prospects very differently. In the end she gets her “dream come true”.
While this is a happily ever after story, it comes at a great price which the author glibly ignores. The breakdown of a twenty year marriage is a painful occurrence, no matter that the love that was once there has vanished. Maggie is also natively short sighted about her own future and the long term implications of the decisions she has made.
Nevertheless, as part of the Quick Reads series, it was a well written engaging story.
