Amanda Potter's life seems ideal. Only her household knows the true hell she endures. Wealthy Congressman David Potter is a powerful man, and while some may whisper about the "accidents" his wife suffers, none dare say anything publicly. After rescuing Amanda from a nasty fall, detective Jefferson Dupree suspects abuse. He also is drawn to the beautiful, haunted woman.

For Amanda, the only escape is through her dreams. After discovering a dreamcatcher at an auction, Amanda is transported nightly to a time inhabited by Nokose, a half French/half Muskogee Indian from a century earlier. Nokose knows that she is from the future and that she is in great danger. He creates the dreamcatcher for her, hoping to be able to save her.

After opening a blackmail tape showing David murdering his girlfriend, Amanda mails the tape to the police in a desperate attempt to expose her husband, then manages to escape from the Potter Estate. Jefferson must reach Amanda before David finds her and wreaks his terrible revenge.

Rising contemporary star Dinah McCall (AKA Sharon Sala) ventures onto mystical new ground with DREAMCATCHER, a novel which blends the passion and drama of her previous works with a new age twist.(Jan., 304 pp., $5.50)
