Lost in Dreams (Altered Hearts #2) by @RogerBruner #BookReview

Join eighteen-year-old Kim Hartlinger, as she arrives home from a life-changing mission trip to a remote Mexican village. This second novel in a new series for teen girls will challenge your faith—and capture your heart—as you journey with Kim through the biggest struggle of her life and faith.

Roger Bruner worked as a teacher, job counselor, and programmer analyst before retiring at sixty-two to pursue his dream of writing Christian fiction full-time. 

Barbour Publishing released the first two novels in his young adult Altered Hearts series, Found in Translation and Lost in Dreams, in 2011. He's self-published two small books of some of his older, short works, Yesterday's Blossoms and More of Yesterday's Blossoms. 

Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas released his speculative novel, The Devil & Pastor Gus, in 2014. His agent is actively seeking homes for his remaining nine unpublished manuscripts.

A guitarist, bass player, and songwriter, he is active in his church's choir, praise team, and nursing home ministry. Roger also enjoys reading, photography, web design, mission trips, and spending time with his wonderful wife, Kathleen, and their miniature dachshund. His daughter and her family live in Orlando and his stepdaughters live in NYC and Las Vegas.

After recently turning seventy, he's always finding something new to post on his other blog,

This book starts out right where the first book ended. For me, this book was a little hard to get into. But the way that Bruner describes Kim's grief was very well executed and made you really feel for Kim. I think that the best part about this story is the characters, they deep and complex and keep you interested in their story the whole time.
