Product Description

Only In My Dreams - A Novelette by Margaret Lake

Delia Cummings isn't dissatisfied with her life. She doesn't think she has a life to be dissatisfied with. She works in a bakery, decorating cakes and bagging up rolls and pastries. Her husband, Charlie, as often as not falls asleep in front of the TV. Her children are grown and married, with not even a hint of a grandchild to give her purpose. After nearly thirty years of marriage and little to show for it, Delia is tired; just plain tired. And it is only in her dreams that she begins to find a reason to go on living.

Also available in the anthology A Walk in the Woods with six other stories.

3.0 out of 5 stars Short story about change & accepting yourself 15 Dec 2010
By C
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A short story about feeling lost, dissatisfied & unloved.
Through her dreams she goes through change, gains confidence & inspiration. A nice twist at the end about whats important, self acceptance & re-newed love.
Not really what i was expecting, nether the less i enjoyed the read. About an hours worth i'd say. Good price.
For the romantic fantasists, you'll like it more than i.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good short story 5 Sep 2010
By Stacy L. Daniels - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This short story is about self-realization, self-confidence and true love. Delia is a character many women can identify with - married 30 years, overweight, unappreciated and always doing for others with little thought to herself. When a sexy man in her dreams inspires her, she begins to make small changes in her life, but will she lose herself in the process? The author describes a realistic heroine who is not perfect, but still manages to learn an important lesson about love and life.

This work shows how versatile Margaret Lake is as an author.
She writes longe historical novels and short novelettes.
She writes about period people and modern folks.
Ever creative and inventive.

Whether one is surprised by the ending or not, one will enjoy the telling of this story.
Delia learns to "love" again.
Nice story.

Just sayin.....
