“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
