Dream a little dream...

Last night I read Into the Dreaming by Karen Marie Moning. This short tale was originally published as part of the anthology Tapestry.

Moning’s novella contains many of the same threads found in her other Highlander tales: Time travel. Faery influence. Memory loss. Yadda yadda yadda.

Jane Sillee is in love with a man who has been haunting her dreams since childhood. The handsome Highlander becomes the main character in the romance novels she has been trying – unsuccessfully – to get published.

One day a box appears at her door. The tapestry inside is an exact likeness of Jane’s dream lover. After falling asleep beside it, she awakens the next morning - not beside the tapestry, or even her own time – but in 1400s Scotland…where she sees the dreamy Highlander in the flesh.

Too bad he has no clue who he is…let alone Jane!

Can Jane spark his memory before it’s too late?

At just over 100 pages, this book was – obviously – a quick read. As noted, there were a ton of similarities to Moning’s other Highlander books. Regardless, I enjoyed the tale.
