This third book in Stacy's series can't be the end. I don't want it to be. I want to read more about the families in Jubilant, and the stories the characters have to tell. Dreams that Won't Let Go continues the story of Reuben and his young family's arrival back into the lives of his siblings and the grandparents who raised them. There is more than a little bit of resentment on his sisters' parts when he gets all the attention, though he never asked for it. Yasmin wants to start modeling again a ...more

Dreams that Won't Let Go is a riveting and beautiful book. I have not read the earlier books in the Jubilant Souls series, but I will make it a point to go back and read the first two. However, the third installment stands on it's own very well, I never felt lost. I just want to rad the first two to learn more about some of the characters and to enjoy more of Ms. Adams' writing.

So what about this book stood out to me? First the characters. I enjoyed getting to know Indigo and Reuben and their lo

It’s been four years since we’ve last checked in with the Burns family. Since older brother Reuben has moved back home to Jubilant, Texas. Indigo is engaged to Max. Baby sister Yasmin is sulking after having to give up her modeling career.

Irene and Charles are so caught up in ‘Reubenmania’ that they don’t realize how they’ve ostracized their other children and responsibilities. Instead of always being able to come home, the move is more difficult as both sisters are harboring resent

Indigo Burns is planning her wedding, and it should be the happiest time of her life, but turmoil is on the horizon. Her brother has moved back home to Jubilant Texas after years of being gone. Her younger sister Yasmin is rebelling against her parents because they made decisions about her modeling career. All of this has everyone on edge, Indie is having feelings of anger towards her brother for abandoning them with no explanation and unknown to her, her brother has his own demons he is fightin ...more

The third installment of the Jubilant Soul series and, like the second one, it stands alone well. Indigo's story is continued, but through her relationship with her brother Reuben, the prodigal son returned.

It was a bit of a slow starter for me, but I ultimately enjoyed the story. Indigo starts out rather petulant and whiny and I wanted to kick her. But, as she's planning her wedding, her mother showers all her love and attention on Reuben and his family instead of focusing on anyone else, and I

I really like this book. This is the third book in the Jubilant Soul series, however, the events in this book didn't leave me confused so it could be read as a stand alone title or in the series. As I read this book I saw that the author, Stacy Hawkins Adams, was able to draw on a topic( I won't elaborate as I don't want to give spoilers!) that can be very real in today's world. A wonderful job! I could see my self in these amazing characters. The author did a fantastic job blending these charac ...more

I've said it before, normally I don't pick up a book in mid-series - especially if it's the LAST book in series. However, I was pleasantly surprised as I dove into this book.

While I did need to do some "catching up" for character background info, I was able to do this by paying attention to the details Hawkins Adams wove into the story.

I do think reading the first two books would have enhanced my enjoyment of Dreams That Won't Let Go, because it would have helped me understand some of the family

If you want a synopsis, or preview on the book, simply click on the book, and click preview.

This book is filled with inspiration. As the author Stacy Hawkins Adams puts it, it is "enveloped in love". The story revolves around the institutions of the family and religion. It conveys how the typical family has its dysfunctions, and how it puts on these facades, and, yet how unconditional love, hope and perseverance can heal a multitude of wounds.

Dreams That Won’t Let Go is the third book in the popular Jubilant Soul series, and although I haven’t read the other books in the series, I was able to completely enjoy this novel without feeling lost. I enjoyed reading the personal and family struggles of the Burns family and admired how they dealt with their challenges without losing faith and their love for one another. At the core of their relationships was love and despite all of the unspoken secrets, that love never died. The brother-sist ...more

reams that Won't Let Go follows Indigo and her family as she is about to continue on with her photography dream and about to get married. Everything seems perfect except for the fact that her oldest brother, Rueben, who the family hasn't seen in years, is moving home and taking away all of Indigo's attention. This book follows the relationship between the three siblings and Indigo and her fiance and extended family members as she tries to figure out what's the next step. How does she follow her ...more

Fantastic read; been reading the book; Dreams that won't let go, now here’s the review
Dreams that won’t let go-the book review, of the book by Stacy Hawkins Adam, published by Revell; a division of Baker Publishing Group. The Burns family is familiar with tragedy, heartaches and pain maybe too familiar, so much so that it would appears as if sometime some individuals in this family deliberately seeks out or invites pain, and if and when the chance of resolving issues presents itself, such are vi

The best in The Jubilant Series. I enjoyed the story of the Burns family coming full circle to a satisfying conclusion. I liked that the Burns family finally confronted all of their skeletons and put them out in the open so they could be overcome. Even with all of his struggles and faults Reuben was a likeable character, and I wanted to know the outcome of his journey. I was also glad to know Indigo got her happy ever after. And Yasmin found her answers. The only problem I had was with the Rache ...more

It was a great book just like the other two. One thing that has stuck and will stick with me was near the end of the book. The next to last page to be exact. Reuben had just given his testimony at church and was about to sing. He stated he had not sung since he was 12. He said he thought the song had died in him when his parents died in the accident. (this next statement) Reuben stated "I've realized that the song didn't die- I smothered it." WOW!! Powerful. I think we have all smothered our own ...more

I was not disappointed by this next book in the series. There were still a few things that had me lost for a bit but I'm not sure if that was the author's intent or I was missing background info by not having read the first book in the series.

While Dreams That Won't Let Go did divulge an unknown from Reuben's past; it didn't have the same shock effect as when we learned about Brian's past in the second book but it still made for a good storyline.

I'm somewhat disappointed that this is the final b

First of all, thank you to good reads for this book. I don't think I would have chosen this book on my own. Even though it is very religiously based, it still has a wonderful message. It shows how important it is for a family to have open lines of communication in all facets of life. Without communication only hurt can result. If the lines of communication are open a family and the individuals within it can get through all the tough times in life. It is a message that I think many families need.

Langauge: No adult language.
Sexuality: Mentioned but nothing explicit.
Violence: Mentioned and hinted but not a major theme.

I was not a fan of this book. I have never read anything by this author and didn't realize it was sequel until after I had started. The story line was too predictable and I kept waiting for the twist and it never came. I had a hard time relating to any of the characters. Maybe if I had read the first book I would think differently but the characters all seemed a bit flat to

I won this book from Goodreads.

It's the first book that I've read by this author. I have to say that I enjoyed the book.

It makes me think about how all of us have to come to terms with old hurts or disappointments from our past. This is especially true in families if we are going to be truly happy.

The only thing that bothered me about it was the fact that the grandchildren called the grandparents Mom & Dad.

I would recommend this book.

This was a wonderful read! A faith-based novel about reconciliation and forgiveness. It is full of suspense and the final book in the Jubilant Soul series trilogy. You finally get to meet Rueben and his family which reveals the history behind the Burns family. You will feel good after reading this story as it is very uplifting.

Awesome book!

This whole series was amazing! It was all about faith and family! Nothing like trusting God with all our problems. The Burns family had many trials and tribulations but they made it. This series is definitely a must read!

A little slow and a lot less dramatic than the author probably would like you to think. It could've used a lot more twists and turns but it is based in religion so its probably as much as a less worldly person would ever experience

Adams eloquently and with great sensitivity tells a great story which demonstrates how dealing with one's past lends to a more fruitful life with the people who really matter. I recommend this work to anyone needing or witholding forgiveness or acceptance of themself or others.
