Format: Paperback
I have to start by saying that I'm a big fan of most of Nora Roberts' trilogies and other groupings of books about families. That said, some are definitely better than others, and for me, this one was one of the best.
"Daring to Dream" is the first of this trilogy about "sisters of the heart" -- three women who grew up together in the same household. Margo Sullivan is the heroine of this tale, and she has spent most of her life trying to shed the "housekeeper's daughter" mantle that she wears with no small chip on her shoulder. She has made a name for herself in modeling and has traveled the world, but when her career falls apart she knows there's only one place she can go, and that's "home".

Many readers who didn't care for this book seem to have felt that Margo was selfish and self-centered. While I agree on the latter, I wouldn't say that she was selfish at all. It was very clear that while she's very "me" oriented, she would have dropped anything at any time to help her friends if they needed her. She's an extremely realistic character, and that means that she is, of course, flawed. Those closest to her are always quick to point out her flaws -- in fact, she often refers to them herself. But her best trait, they agree, is her loyalty, and this makes her the kind of person most people would want as a friend.

I also really enjoyed the love story in this book. Josh Templeton, the "heir apparent" to a hotel fortune and her best friend's brother to boot, isn't at all the spoiled jet-setting playboy that some have said. In fact, he works ultra-hard during the course of the book to prove his own worth, to show that he deserves his success and is not just a trust-fund baby. He was the perfect match for Margo and it was sweeter (and all the more realistic) that he has loved her all his life.

A wonderful beginning to the "Dream" trilogy.

Like in so many of her books, Nora Roberts is able to bring her characters to life. So you share their joys and sadness. The story is the first part of a trilogy, and I personally waited until I had all three parts to start, however, the book can and does stand well on it's own.
Without giving anything away, the story is base on the lives of three women, sisters in every way but blood. This book focuses on Margo, her dreams are the wildest and richest. From the giddy heights of Milan to the magic of home. With the help of her 'sisters' and Josh, she sees that all her dreams can come true.
This book will leave to with a warm, feel good feeling.

I love this book. From trilogy, this is my favorite. Ever since I bought it a couple of years ago, I've gone back to it again and again. I just can't get enough of it!
While it's true that Margo seems a bit too spoiled and selfish at the beginning, you also come to understand her motivation for using her body--which is her only asset--to create a world for herself. Margo is not all bad. She's caring about her friends, and in her own way, she does things for them. She gives them support, and is there when they need her.

I liked Josh from the beginning. He could easily have been a very snobbish, spoiled person, but he wasn't. He cared very much about his sister and nieces. The good relationship between him and his family was evident, and that clearly says something about him.

Although we don't see much interaction between Margo and Josh, the reader does believe that there is a caring, loving relationship developing between them. Although Josh is a bit too possessive, it's reasonable since he's had to do without Margo for a very long time. Personally, I like them and think that they would be great people to know.

If you like the DREAM series, you may also want to try Tino Georgiou's bestselling novel--The Fates--if you missed it!

I have been slowly working my way through all of Nora Robert's Trilogys and I have not been disappointed by any I have read so far and I have nearly read them all!!

I bought this for my kindle for my holiday and I read all three books to this triology in 3 days by the pool I just couldnt put them down like all of her books I have read before.

This book focuses on a women who's small life is nothing compared to her big dreams and when she leaves home her dreams become a reality with a lot of hard work and a lot of luck until she trusts the wrong man and it all comes crashing down she goes back home to where she is always welcome even if she doesnt always feel it - some harsh home truths make her realise what really is important in life

There's no denying it, Josh/Margo's relationship was incredibly passionate and one of my favourite story arcs in romance novels is when two people who have been friends for years discover that they want more than friendship.

However, I didn't really understand Margo herself. I cannot conceive how anyone, even a millionaire, could have so many luxury goods and designer clothes to warrant opening a shop to sell off her stuff. Okay, maybe if she was born into money but earning that much money from a modelling career and buying expensive vases with it?! Yes, I get blowing it on a house, expensive car, luxury travel but I still don't understand how she could have accumulated so many ludicrously priced knick-knacks. She would have been better off giving me the money instead. Hmpf.
