Summary
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * Debbie Macomber returns with a powerful standalone novel about a woman forced to start her life anew, embarking on the most courageous journey of all--to a place where she learns what love and trust really mean.

Shay Benson adored her younger brother, Caden, and that got her into trouble. When he owed money, Shay realized she would do anything to help him avoid the men who were threatening him, and she crossed lines she never should have crossed. Now, determined to start fresh, she finds herself in search of a place to stay and wanders into a church to escape from the cold.

Pastor Drew Douglas adored his wife. But when he lost her, it was all he could do to focus on his two beautiful kids, and his flock came in a distant third. Now, as he too is thinking about a fresh start, he walks through his sanctuary and finds Shay sitting in a pew.

The pair strike up a friendship--Drew helps Shay get back on her feet, and she reignites his sense of purpose--that, over time, turns into something deeper, something soulful, spiritual, and possibly romantic. Even Drew's two children are taken with this woman who has brought light back into their lives. Perhaps most important, Shay learns to trust again as she, in turn, proves herself trustworthy to her adopted community.

But Caden's return to town and a disastrous secret threaten to undo the life Shay has tried so hard to rebuild. It will take the utmost courage and faith if she and Drew hope to find healing and open their hearts to a brighter future.

Praise for Any Dream Will Do

"Emotional, romantic and inspirational, the latest novel from romance maven Macomber is a must read! . . . Shay's journey is one of courage, and there's something in her story for every reader." -- RT Book Reviews

" Any Dream Will Do is . . . so realistic, it's hard to believe it's fiction through the end. Even then, it's hard to say goodbye to these characters. This standalone novel will make you hope it becomes a Hallmark movie, or gets a sequel. It's an inspiring, hard-to-put-down tale. . . . You need to read it." -- The Free-Lance Star

" Any Dream Will Do by Debbie Macomber is a study in human tolerance and friendship. Macomber masterfully shows how all people have value." --Fresh Fiction

"Macomber never disappoints. The message is uplifting and inspirational. Fans of Christian fiction or crossover works with a positive message will enjoy this book." -- Library Journal
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Shay Benson's life was difficult as she suffered abuse, but it became much harder when she stole money from the bank where she worked for her druggy brother, who said he would be killed if she didn't. Three years later, released from prison with nowhere to go and no support system, she walks into a church seeking shelter from Seattle's December chill. There she meets Pastor Drew Douglas, a depressed widower with two children, who sends her to Hope Center. Shay and Drew become friends, and his kids adore her, but can a pastor and a convicted felon go beyond friendship? Told in alternating first-person narratives, this low-key romance, with its healthy dose of spirituality, will appeal to fans of Christian fiction who like tales of redemption featuring kind and caring individuals who grow and blossom through adversity. This is darker than the sweet novels that have made Macomber a beloved, best-selling author, but her multitudinous fans, all who seek uplifting stories, and readers of RaeAnne Thayne, Robyn Carr, Robin Lee Hatcher, and Amanda Cabot will enjoy it.--Herald, Diana Tixier Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Venerable romance author Macomber's latest inspirational novel suffers from uninspired, generic plotting. The paint-by-numbers narrative, set in Seattle, is divided between Shay Benson, whose embezzlement on her brother's behalf sent her to prison for three years, and pastor Drew Douglas, a widowed father of two. Shay's struggle to start afresh is the perfect counterpoint for the minister's crisis of faith. They become friends and a romantic connection blossoms, but some in the church have questions about her trustworthiness and, by extension, his judgment. Bad actors begin reappearing in Shay's life, perfectly timed to threaten her acceptance and exaggerated by a promise she is determined to keep. Macomber's heavy hand in this area turns her steadfast young heroine into a victim, which only adds to the plot's hackneyed qualities. Agent: Theresa Park, Park Literary & Media.
