True love, freedom, self-worth, security... Dreams and desires of the ordinary woman, or man. From best friends who discover love to a young woman looking for a place to belong to a woman finding love again, this collection of sixteen stories celebrates the attainment of all one can dream or desire. Which one do you secretly yearn for? By purchasing this collection, you can help turn someone's nightmare into the pursuit of dreams. Every year, four million women are assaulted by their partners. At Freya's Bower, we want to do our part to bring this statistic down to zero. To this end, all net proceeds from every Dreams and Desire anthology purchased will go to St. Bernard's Battered Woman's Shelter in New Orleans. (They have just rebuilt this past year from Katrina.) Through education and support, we can make a difference. Authors (in alphabetical order of last name): Shobhan Bantwal, Marci Baun, Jenna Bayley-Burke, Mychael Black, Amanda Brice, M.E. Ellis, Gemma Halliday, Candace Havens, Babe King, Bonnie Kinsey, Adelle Laudan, Susan Lyons, Debbie Mumford, Kari Lee Townsend, Lois Winston, and Barbara Witek. Foreword by Carol Anne Davis.
