Dreams of My Mothers is based on the true story of two mothers' transcendent love for the same boy. It is a love that reaches across the globe, propels them and him on a riveting and unimaginable path of transformation and triumph. It is a story that will speak to everyone who reads it; a story that tells us that love alone is not enough.  Transcendent love is exceptionally rare, requiring sacrifice beyond normal boundaries, a faith beyond all doubts, and most of all, the courage to dream beyond all hope. Author Joel Peterson gives us a vivid and gripping story of a biracial, impoverished boy who, through the love and courage of his mothers, overcomes questions of identity, race, physical handicaps and prejudice to become a new American success story. It touches on all the issues of who we are--as a people, as a nation, and as individuals. Dreams of My Mothers is a story particular to a few, but relevant to all. It is American, yet global. It is a story that feels intensely personal, yet universal in its themes and humanness. And the triumphs are real. Review "Compelling, candid, exceptionally well written, "Dreams Of My Mothers" is a powerful read that will linger in the mind and memory long after it is finished and set back upon the shelf. Very highly recommended."- Reviewer's Choice Selection, Midwest Book Review"I was so impressed with this book we are awarding it to our Luce Leaders at a Leadership Reception at the Sri Lankan Mission to the United Nations Feb. 26. Congrats to author Joel L. A. Peterson!"- Jim LuceFounder of Orphans International Worldwide and The J. Luce Foundation"Author Joel Peterson has written a gripping book that sheds extraordinary new insights into the American Dream, as well as themes common to all human beings."                                - Herb Chilstromformer Presiding Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America"I was asked to proofread this project, but the story so engaged me from the first page that I worked on it without pausing, even to eat. Beautifully done on all fronts.  I feel that this will be a best seller."- Ulrike Guthrie, Editor,Bangor, Maine"An extraordinary tale (based on true events)... Uniquely written...this is a page turner that will have you laughing and crying and wanting more. Beautifully done!"    - Wendy WyattGoodreads reviewer From the Author I wrote my novel, Dreams of My Mothers, because I have been privileged to bear witness to some very unique circumstances and experiences, at extreme ends of the human condition and at the margins of the American saga. I wanted to share some of these in a way that truly brings the reader inside each experience and each moment as if they were the character going through it.But, at a time when our society seems to be struggling to find a shared identity - with race, culture, and what it means to be American - I also wrote the book because it reveals deep, unique insight, adding to the social discourse through a topic - multiracialism within transnational and transracial adoption - that rarely gets much attention from any quarter, because it represents such a niche subset of our society, yet contains within it all the most relevant, timeless, and deeply felt - and held - human themes, passions, values, insecurities, tragedies, and judgments...and loves. From the Inside Flap It's 1967 in the country of South Korea. A four-year-old boy is terrified when he witnesses his mother's apparent death.   The boy believes her death as final and certain truth.  He believes that there is now no one to protect him, no one to love him; that he is all on his own. He is filled with a mindless terror and loneliness beyond comprehension, and he begins to cry and shake uncontrollably; a wailing, des­perate cry of anguish and fear from a little boy who believes that his mother just died.   And that he is alone forever.   But this is not the end of the story; nor its beginning.
