This is a guidebook to help children who: have been given too little encouragement to follow their hopes and dreams; are too despondent or defeated to go after their hopes or their dreams; are too busy surviving, so hopes and dreams are a luxury they cannot afford; think that hopes and dreams are just for other people; do not follow their dreams because they are too afraid of failing; are following somebody else's star; and, only dream small dreams for themselves, from a fear of being big.

"Notebooks from the Past" reflects on life in its search for peace.

"The Distance between Hopes and Dreams" seeks to bring out the poet and dreamer in all of us. If Dreams Were Keys There d Be No Locks Door I If dreams were keys there d be no locks, All prisons empty, true love run amok! Fat angels would smile with rifles, and socks: To target the banana-strawberry heart. Door II Without any locks, lions would hunt Like beasts, to pounce, thus reinvent pun, Or breed like citizens for sport, and court: Under the vanilla paper bag sun "

Although Dolly is engaged to Tony, a boy from her street who has been called up, she can't help but fall in love with Joe, a dashing American GI who eventually asks her to marry him. But America is not all she imagined it would be, and she's shocked by the cool welcome Joe's mother gives her. As she struggles to make friends and understand the man she's married, Dorothy begins to realise that she made a terrible mistake when she walked away from Tony, and wonders if he even remembers the innocent young girl who broke his heart. Only when she returns to Rotherhithe can she find out if there is still a chance of happiness for the two of them. What readers are saying about Hope and Dreams: 'A great read.
