REVIEW - Marigny Street by Annie Rose Welch

Do you believe in the power of dreams? 

Way down south on Marigny Street in the heart of New Orleans, the land of Catholic intercessions, purgatory, and supernatural superstitions, young Evangeline Chenier dreams of a radiant boy who saves her from a storm. She takes the dream seriously – in her family, dreams are sometimes more than dreams. Sometimes they foretell the future. Sometimes they create it. 

Years later, Eva is no longer the same wistful girl but a hardened woman who no longer believes in dreams. Losing faith in her gift, she becomes lost in a nightmare of emotion, mourning her son, separating from her husband, and stewing in a dead-end job. And then fate brings her an unlikely surprise: one of the most famous movie stars in the world, Gabriel Roberts. 

Caught by something in his eyes, Eva agrees to show him the real Big Easy on his last night in New Orleans—an evening that turns into four dreamy days spent recapturing lost faith and discovering a love neither expected. Realizing Gabriel is the boy from her childhood dream, Eva must leave everything behind—her husband, her family, her history, and the beautiful city she calls home—and gamble it all for the dream that has saved her on MARIGNY STREET.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is certainly a different book from what I typically read. It grabbed my attention from the get go and kept me on the edge of my seat. Evangeline suffers a tragic loss and withdraws from her family and her life and yet a stranger is able to pull her out of this "coma like" state. Eva learns that life is worth living and that she can move forward in her life only to realize that things are not always what they seem. This is a must read for everyone! Cant not wait for the next book in this series.
