Plagued by thoughts of what could be, Dina seeks to uncover the truth, putting everyone she loves, herself, and even her marriage in danger.

DreamTrek: Journey Through the Night's Door
Dreams do come true, but at what cost? Dina Youngblood is about to find out. DreamTrek: Journey Through the Night's Door, is a profoundly captivating read about a Native American woman journeying between two worlds and two cultures. Dina is a Christian convert, struggling between the beliefs of her native heritage and the Jesus Way, taught in the white man's world that sometimes; collided with Indian traditions passed on from generation to generation by the Elders.
Dina's personal and very real battles will consume the reader as she seeks answers to the gnawing questions 'why' her stillborn son she buried is calling to her, smiling and laughing like he was alive. These confused feelings of loss and joy were haunting her dreams at night and the choices she would make based on a sepia world deluded with pigmented images of A.J., no longer stillborn. What magic was this place? The turns and twists in DremTrek will not disappoint.
Not to be ignored, is an underlying love story filled with suspenseful innuendos that centers around a notebook filling pages with stories of the Journal People that Dina's great-grandmother, Mama Hat recorded to pass on to her great-granddaughter. Preserving family history, meant revealing secrets of the Journal People and who they were to Mama Hat. There was one story she must tell Dina, but only when she was ready to face her cursed bloodline, the women were 'runners.' It was just a story, but Mama Hat would prove her wrong.
