Peejay Novack's young life was deeply impacted by her mother's death from
cancer and her father's strange disappearance when she was only thirteen
years old. A reporter on his way to interview a presidential campaign
aide who had a story to tell that could change the results of the upcoming
election, Logan Novak seemingly dropped off the face of the earth. Now,
years later, Peejay's beloved grandfather is dead, and she feels truly
alone. Her life changes when she meets a famous author who wants to write
a book about her grandfather's life. Elizabeth Briteful is different from
anyone Peejay has ever known. Her sense of freedom and lack of inhibitions
intrigue the lonely young girl. As Peejay explores the possibilities her
new life presents and an awakening of her own sexuality, her troubling
dreams lead her on a search for the truth about her father. Old and new
relationships change and she begins to question the things and people
she once had faith in. When a good friend is found dead, she suspects
that someone around her knows more than they're telling.
DREAM TAPESTRY is an
engrossing novel. It's well written, and the characters are sharply defined.
The plot will keep you involved and guessing every step of the way. One
warning: there is explicit material that may not be everyone's cup of
Ms. McCants is a novelist
who will definitely be heard from again. I'm looking forward to it.
