Only In My Dreams By: Shelia Bell
"Fantasia Runsome has it all - beauty, brains, her own art galleries, homes across the country, and everything else money can buy. What Fantasia doesn't have and never has desired is LOVE. She holds on to bitterness and anger from when her father died when she was just a young girl. Fantasia swears that she will never fall in love because she doesn't want to experience the hurt, pain and grief that her mother Ruth Runsome went through when her husband (Fantasia's father) died. A highly religious man, Fantasia feels that God destroyed their once perfect family. To top it off, her brother, Prodigal, also experienced the ultimate pain when he not only lost his leg in a terrible fire, but he also lost his wife to cancer, leaving Prodigal with two small children to raise. Fantasia has no reason to trust or believe in God, and she definitely has no room for a man in her life...unless it's a man that she seems to find Only In Her Dreams.
Randall Hughes, a partner in a line of men's clothing stores that cater to the rich and famous is handsome, secure and a man after God's own heart. He desires the woman that God has designed for him and he is willing to wait patiently until God reveals her to him. When he meets Fantasia Runsome,the good friend and cousin of his business partner's wife, he is immediately drawn to her beauty. What disturbs but yet intrigues him is Fantasia's disdain toward his faith and him. So why is he still attracted to her? This surely can't be the woman God has for him....could it?
Fantasia and Randall are two souls unknowingly seeking the same thing - to be loved. Will they find it in each other?"
This was quite a interesting sweet romantic read about Fantasia and Randall. This author gives us a good story about Fantasia who had a problem excepting LOVE, not wanting to 'experience hurt, pain and grief' after the death of her father. Why was this? So, it seems like Fantasia was living life to the fullest having it all...'everything money can buy.' Fantasia even thought that she didn't even need a 'God' in her life. So having all the money she wanted and no God in her life was she really happy?
However, what was up with the dreams that Fantasia was having? Then she meets Randall who seems to be a very devout person when it came to his christian life, This is where this story will pick up and this is where I say you will have to pick up this good read to see if Randall will be able to help Fantasia turn her faith and him? In the end 'will they find each other?' T This was beautifully written and I would definitely recommend "Only In My Dreams" as a good read.
