Have you ever wondered …

If I had listened to my heart, would I have forgotten my dreams so easily?

Lena is coasting. Ignoring. Avoiding a life she feels too guilty to live—until, thirteen months after a fateful phone call, she is forced from her hiding place in Oregon to drive a vintage Volkswagen van back to its rightful owners in Florida. As Lena grapples with grief, unexpected engine troubles, and a broken ankle, a stranger comes to the rescue. Lena is left with no choice. Someone else has to drive the van to Florida. But not without her.


Palmer is often the first to help and always has a plan. But when he discovers the family’s furniture business has declared bankruptcy, his perfectly crafted future shatters in front of him. Angry at his father and frustrated by his uncertain career, Palmer makes a new plan to leave the state. Fortunately for him, a fascinating woman he’s met needs a driver to take her and her van to Florida—a perfect opportunity to leave town and scout for reclaimed wood. 


What follows for Lena and Palmer is a winding journey of self-discovery, as life breaks open and all that’s left is their dreams.

Dream for a Second is a contemporary fiction novel about the difficulty of healing, the intimidating possibilities of change, the fear of letting go, and, ultimately, the path toward one’s unrealized dreams.
