Item description for The Living Room by Robert Whitlow...

Overview
What would you do if the dream you had last night came true today?
Legal secretary Amy Clarke is a budding romance novelist with an active imagination. However, unlike other writers, the inspiration for her books doesn?t come when she?s awake; it happens while she sleeps. Amy knows that the interpretation of dreams plays a significant role in the Bible.?Could God be trying to tell her something?
Amy's mother made her promise never to talk about her dreams back when she was a young girl. Now that she's a wife and mother of two teens, the images are more disturbing. And instead of receiving them in dreams, the visions come?when she's wide awake. Staying quiet is no longer an option.
As her involvement in a high-stakes case at work exposes Amy to threats from unexpected places,?her fourteen-year-old daughter, Megan,?gets tangled up in rumors. Then Megan seeks solace in what only seems like a safe place.
Dreams, writing, and visions converge in unfolding events that threaten her career, but more importantly, the safety of her family. Faith and courage are the tools Amy must use to triumph in the end.

Publishers Description

Amy Clarke's dreams are coming true--and that's the problem.

Legal secretary by day, romance novelist by night, Amy Clarke lives with a precious secret. For years, she has traveled to a holy place in her dreams--a sublime place she calls the Living Room. When she awakes, her faith and energy are supernaturally restored. And when she dreams, she receives vibrant inspiration for her novels.

As she begins to write her third book, the nature of her dreams shifts. Gone are the literary signposts. Instead, her dreams are studded with scenes that foreshadow real life. Before long, the scenes begin to spill over into her waking hours too.

As Amy becomes entangled in a high stakes case at work, her visions take on a dark hue--implicating someone dear to her, causing her to question everything. And convincing her to trust someone with his own shadowy secrets.

Things are not always what they seem. But as fiction, dreams, and real life begin to overlap, Amy must stop dreaming and act to prevent tragedy.

"With deft sleight of hand, wonderful characterization, and carefully layered plots, Robert Whitlow has crafted a gripping story about the mysteries of God's power to shelter the people he loves."--Erin Healy, author of Afloat

An Incredibly Exciting Mystery Thriller  Dec 2, 2013
Robert Whitlow in his new book, “The Living Room” published by Thomas Nelson takes us into the life of Amy Clarke .

From the back cover: Amy Clarke’s dreams are coming true—and that’s the problem.

Legal secretary by day, romance novelist by night, Amy Clarke lives with a precious secret. For years, she has traveled to a holy place in her dreams—a sublime place she calls the Living Room. When she awakes, her faith and energy are supernaturally restored. And when she dreams, she receives vibrant inspiration for her novels.

As she begins to write her third book, the nature of her dreams shifts. Gone are the literary signposts. Instead, her dreams are studded with scenes that foreshadow real life. Before long, the scenes begin to spill over into her waking hours too.

As Amy becomes entangled in a high stakes case at work, her visions take on a dark hue—implicating someone dear to her, causing her to question everything. And convincing her to trust someone with his own shadowy secrets.

Things are not always what they seem. But as fiction, dreams, and real life begin to overlap, Amy must stop dreaming and act to prevent tragedy.

Suspense and intrigue abound in this new thriller by Robert Whitlow. I wasn’t sure exactly how Mr. Whitlow was going to get this going but he has a way of drawing you into the story and keeping you there, willingly I might add. For financial reason Amy has to go back to work as a legal secretary and there the dreams she has been having are beginning to take on reality. There is a place where we can all meet with God, some of us make use of it, some of us do not. Amy does and God has been giving her some truth that needs to come out. Now she s in danger until everything can be revealed. Robert Whitlow has written an interesting story that moves along at a remarkably brisk pace. “The Living Room” is full of interesting characters that keep us involved in the story. “The Living Room” is a powerful story and one that will keep you highly interested and flipping pages as fast as you can. I liked this book and recommend it to your reading list.

Not what I expected  Sep 30, 2013
Robert Whitlow has this way of writing that makes you feel like you are right their with the characters. It is as if you sit with them in their own homes and drive around with them in their cars. Amy could have been someone that I know and talk to all of the time. Megan could have been my younger sister and Ian one of the boys I have babysat in the past. Jeff could have even been my neighbor, though I felt at sometimes that he was too good to be true.

Still, the beginning of the novel was slow to me. It took almost a forth of the book before I even began to recognize a plot. At that point, the story picked up and I found that I wanted to spend all day reading. I wanted to see how the story would play out. What would happen with the dreams? Would Amy's firm solve the case because of her? And most importantly, when would someone realize that *Name removed because of spoiler* was beyond shady!? The description had set up a grand and wondrous adventure that I wanted to be part of.

But it didn't fulfill it. By the end of the story, the high stakes case, didn't seem so high stakes. I felt a little cheated. And then vindicated when Lawrence Clark was brought to justice.


The dreams are what made me care about this novel. I loved the supernatural aspect of the story and that Amy refused to stay quite about what she believed God wanted from her. I applaud Whitlow's ability to accurately depict something as controversial, yet rarely mentioned, as prophetic dreams.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
 
Reviews From A Man's Perspective  Aug 19, 2013
I’ve always enjoyed court-room drama. From “Perry Mason” to “Matlock” on TV to John Grisham and Randy Singer novels, there’s always been a draw to enjoy some lawyer type antics. Robert Whitlow has provided some great drama with his lawyer related books. Not all of his books center directly around court room cases, but there’s always some aspects of the novel that revolve around lawyers. I guess they always say that you should “write about what you know”.


Amy has, from a young age, visited a place in her dreams called the “Living Room”. This is a room that she has drifted to in her sleep that provides her with peace and comfort over decisions in her life. That is, until now. Amy has used these visits to help her with her writing and has successfully written two novels. The money from these books help, but aren’t enough for her to give up all thoughts of working a second job. When her replacement at her old law firm leaves on a maternity leave, Amy is asked to come in and work just while she’s gone. Knowing the extra money will help, Amy agrees. As Amy begins writing her third book, her trips to the “living room” take a different twist in the fact that some of them can be directly linked to happenings around her. Her best friend’s son is saved when Amy suggest that her best friend attend a field trip and keep him safe. She sees a vision of a client from the law firm but doesn’t act on it. When it winds up that she should have, she becomes more confused. Meanwhile, back at home, her daughter is swooning over a new teacher at school. Amy and her husband pursue every angle with the new teacher, trying to find any ulterior motives he may have with the students. Throw in a nasty inheritance case at the firm that may or may not involve a new friend of Amy’s and her life begins to unravel. Will she finish her 3rd novel? Will she have to make concessions to her faith background to get the book published? Are the attentions given by the new teacher truly innocent? Can the friendship that she has started be saved or will the inheritance case put it at risk? Tons of questions and no answers from me until you GO BUY THE BOOK!
DISCERNMENT - 1: the quality of being able to grasp and comprehend what is obscure : skill in discerning. 2: an act of perceiving or discerning something

I think this one word does a great job of summing up this book. We all practice some form of discernment when it comes to thoughts, feelings, dreams, etc. Can we use that to help us or to benefit us in our everyday life? Mr. Whitlow does a fantastic job of wrapping this story up as a lesson in discernment. He has written his novel in a way that is very fluid and transparent. While Amy seems to “have it all figured out”, her husband struggles with his day-to-day walk. Both of the parents, though, model a great Christian home in the fact that when there is turmoil, the both pray it and talk it through first. Again, Mr. Whitlow provides us a glimpse into how to use discernment in shaping our every day lives. We must be diligent in our thoughts and prayers and remember to focus on He who provides us with the discernment.

Is this a "guy's book"? There aren’t any overtly “guy” themes in this book. There aren’t dangerous car chases, city-leveling explosions or OK Corral gun fights. What this book does have, though, is an honest look into a typical family and how they work around all the different decisions and changes that come their way. I know that while I was reading it, it made me stop and reflect on how I may not always interact with my wife the way that I should. For that reason alone, I feel this is a book that every man should read.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
