Just when the world’s foremost expert on dream analysis, Dr. Elena Burroughs, thinks she is getting her life back under control after losing her position at Oxford University and the man she hoped to fall in love with, she is approached by Rachel Lamprey, the product manager of an innovative new ADHD treatment about to hit the market.
Rachel asks for Elena’s help with a clinical trial participant who has had a disturbing dream foretelling a cataclysmic global financial collapse. But even more alarming is the fact that fifteen people scattered across the globe—including Elena herself—begin to experience the same repetitive, devastating dreams of economic ruin just as one bank crisis follows another, suggesting that these aren’t merely dreams.
As Elena searches for answers in her professional networks, she is forced to form an unlikely alliance with her most vehement critic and is drawn back into the spotlight as the public face of the so-called dreamers. As Elena and her collaborators attempt to discover the dreams’ source, the clock ticks down to devastation. Suddenly, it’s no longer just about the dreams. It’s about survival.
Have you ever wakened from a dream wondering if it had really happened? Dreams, although subconscious, can often feel eerily like reality. What happens when 15 people dream the same nightmare? In different places around the world? Hidden in Dreams will give you chills as Dr. Elena Burroughs seeks to unravel the mystery behind the parallel dreams of 15 people, one of those being herself. Is it coincidence? A medial mystery? Or some sort of twisted conspiracy?

When my kids were around 4 and 9 years old, I took them camping at a campground just north of where we live. I had a dream that night that Nick, my son and the older child, fell down a bottomless hole. I could hear his little voice calling me, "Moooooommmm," as it grew fainter and fainter. Needless to say I woke up in a cold sweat and reached across our tent to be sure that he was still with me. It was horrible.
My scariest dreams and one that I have had a few times is being caught in a tidal wave and not being able to out run it and then being swept away.
Thanks for the chance to win:)

As a child I was terrified of a dream where I was alone in a jungle and suddenly realized that a large snake was hunting me. I tried hurrying faster and faster along the trail and would outrun the snake only to suddenly feel a coil starting to wrap around me. Each time I wriggled free and ran faster, but grew more exhausted and terrified with each time he caught me. I woke up screaming, convinced it was real and ran to my parents' bedroom. I refused to go back to my bed, certain that the snake was slithering just out of sight. My mom walked me to my room and in my bed we found a thick rubber band that had fallen out of my hair. I had laid on it and felt it rubbing my back as I moved. Mom took the rubber band, sat by me until I fell asleep and I never had the dream again.
BTW: I am already on Davis Bunn's FB and newsletter list.

I used to have a reoccurring dream of crossing the street with plenty of time before the car in the distance got close. The problem was the pavement on the other side was always two more steps away and I was never able to reach it as the car came closer and closer. I always woke up just before impact. Thank the Lord that dream stopped.

One of my scariest dreams that was a call to intercession was of seeing my former missionary friend in her bedroom walk to her babies crib and put him in bed with her. She then turned her back to the floor side of the bed and covered her baby with herself. Suddenly a baby crocidile arose three times from the floor and snapped his mouth each time. I awoke extreemly aware the baby was in trouble. I prayed and later on calling my friend and discribing her bedroom i had not seen and the dream she began to cry. The baby had had something wrong with breathing and had turned blue several times that night they took him into hospital next morning very early. No phone , new home, new community and yet the Lord had the line open in my sleep to pray. Its one of the most precious scary dreams I have ever experienced.The baby is now a healthy young man.
Already a fan and FB freind and recieve letter.
My scariest dreams are when my children are in danger and I can't get to them in time.

My scariest dream was one in which I was sleeping and woke up to have a burglar in the house and I was trying to figure out a way to get myself and my kids out of the house without them knowing we were there.

Wake up tangled in the sheets ever?
Ha, ha! Don't you hate those kind of dreams?
Deep fears coming out in dreams? Sometimes!
You'll qualify. Glad you don't have those dreams.
Ever feel like you're reaching for something unattainable? 🙂
Glad the pursuit is over. 🙂
That one gave me chills Vicky!
All too close to reality huh?
Hmmm…I'll give you credit for trying and see if I can send you a link.
I sometimes have dreams about trying to get home either by public transportation or by walking or even by a school bus and after all my effort to get there then my parents are not at home (someone else lives there) and I do not know what to do. It feels pretty frightening. I think I am still processing that my parents are no longer living.
I would love to win the Davis Bunn book. Please enter me twice since I receive his e-mail updates.
