For months Alexander BlackKnife’s search for a missing woman had lead him to nothing but dead ends.  As an attorney, Alexander would investigate every avenue, even if it might implicate his people, the Susquehannock tribe.  Alexander decides to follow up with the missing blonde’s cousin as a last resort and his entire world changes in the blink of an eye.

Cassandra Stone is a creative beauty who refuses to accept the notion that her cousin could be dead.  Even though the world might think her cousin had lost touch with reality, Cassie thought anything was possible.  If her cousin had traveled to the past, Cassie was determined to find out what happened to her.  Alexander’s disbelief wasn’t going to stop Cassie from following her cousin into the past to make sure she was okay. 

After waking up in the seventeenth century, Cassie is overjoyed to meet her cousin.  Her joy quickly turns to fear when she realizes that Alexander followed her and is in serious trouble.  In the present day, Cassie and Alexander didn’t get a chance to explore their attraction, because of Alexander.  Being in the past together gave them the perfect opportunity to be together, if they could survive long enough to return home. 

Alexander’s fate brings him face to face with his idol.  He gets to spend time with his mentor, learning the old ways and also share his modern knowledge.  Before coming to the past, Alexander questioned his ability to change things for the tribe and if he was the right man for the job.  He’d even convinced himself why a relationship with Cassie was off limits. 

Cassie comes to the conclusion that fate didn’t want her to be with Alexander.   At first she thought the trip to the past was about her.  However, after seeing all the positive changes Alexander makes, Cassie changes her mind.  As much as it hurt, Cassie puts aside her feelings and leaves Alexander, which almost turns out to be a fatal disaster.  Alexander intervenes just in time and the couple gets the ending they deserve. 

Dream Weaver unites a couple who mean a lot to the lives of those around them.  Alexander has obligations to his people, and he’s not certain if he’s strong enough to endure everything.  What he does know is that he wants Cassie and she wants him.  Alexander had doubts, but I never doubted for a minute.  I always saw the strength in him and so did everyone around him.   I like Cassie’s character because she is so quirky.  She certainly knows how to improvise and that quality saved her numerous times.  The story has a lot going on, but I know readers will enjoy the twist and turns the author makes.  Every character left me with a lasting impression and readers will agree.
