Memory and Dream is the story of Isabelle Copley, a young artist who once lived in the bohemian quarter of the northern city of Newford. As a student of Vincent Rushkin, a cruel but gifted painter, she discovered an awesome power - to craft images so real that they came to life. With her paintbrush she called into being the wild spirits of the wood, made her dreams come true with canvas and paint. But when the forces she unleashed brought unexpected tragedy to those she loved, she ran away from Newford, turning her back on her talent - and on her dreams. Now, twenty years later, the power of Newford has reached out to draw her back. To fulfill a promise to a long-dead friend, Isabelle must come to terms with the shattering memories she has long denied, and unlock the slumbering power of her brush. She must accept her true feelings for her newfound lover John Sweetgrass, a handsome young Native American who is the image of her most intense imaginings. And, in a dark reckoning with her old master, she must find the courage to live out her dreams, and bring the magic back to life.

A soulful journey into art, friendship, and love, with dream sequences and flashbacks, this novel is demanding for the listener as well as the narrator. Kate Reading tackles the shifting story and lyrical prose with a tenderness that brings the characters to life. Alternating between male and female voices, she captures the intricate history of a set of friends involved in the world of painting and writing. Further, she makes believable the ghost story elements in the many flashback scenes involving the various characters. The stories are all linked, and each one is given a distinctive voice through the modulating tones of ReadingÕs narration.
