Chloe Radcliffe was ready to shake the dust of Cedar Key off her feet and sink her toes into the warm sands of Ormond Beach with her soon-to-be husband. But when tragedy struck, she found herself alone, unraveled—and unsure where she belonged…

A series of vivid dreams of a Victorian house with a beautiful fishpond convince Chloe to take a leap of faith and rent a condo in Ormond Beach. There, she makes fast friends with a group of knitters and the owner of a tea shop, who also happens to have a house nearly identical to the one in Chloe’s dreams—and she’s willing to rent her the property. 

Just as Chloe begins casting on her grand plans for the home, her tangled past comes back to haunt her—but her dreams and new-found friends just might point her toward the love she’s been missing all along…

Patterns of Change by Terri Dulong is a relaxing read that I quite enjoyed. The story was interesting and well written with believable characters. The story line was  engaging  though a bit fantastical but what is romance without a bit of fantasy and dreaming?  

Ms. Dulong's ability to capture the essence of the joys and challenges women face in their lives as well as portray so accurately the complexity and joy of the friendships we build with each other is one of the things that I most enjoyed with this book. 

In an effort for full disclosure, this romance novel contains issues of date rape and pre-marital relations though the author has addressed these issues with sensitivity and subtlety.
