From her high-up window in the attic of the old Suggins home, a run-down, ramshackle, hodge-podge of add-ons, lean-tos, and converted outbuildings that mercifully obscured the original structure, now devoid of paint these many decades, Becky Sue Suggins looked out at the manure pile, the hen house, and, beyond that, the odoriferous pig sty, and wondered if it were true that she’d never own a brick privy, the dire fate often predicted for her by her unsympathetic father, Lafcadio Suggins, a man who knew the value of hard work and avoided it at every opportunity, but esteemed it highly in others.

“J Guenther cleverly combines a plot of adventure on an imaginary sailboat with a shrewd eye on teen-age angst.
In the SILVER DREAM, Sharon and David ride the waves ... to adventures where dreams are created and realized. On their journey, the two are tossed from grief to sweetness, from fear to solace and safety.
Guenther is on the mark, using the main characters as narrators, unfolding parallel stories between past and present, dream and reality. SAIL AWAY ON MY SILVER DREAM is a captivating page-turner, with a winning cast of characters.
David and Sharon seem so real that readers might feel they've already met them. We feel their disappointment and hopes, and we join them wholeheartedly...” N. Decker
