The Hambledown Dream is an enchanting and moving first novel by Dean Mayes about a young man whose spirit refuses to die. For a brilliant young man with the world at his feet, his untimely death is not end of his journey, it is just the beginning...
Denny Banister had it all – a successful university degree, a passion for the guitar and a deep love for Sonya - his soul mate whom he wishes to marry. Tragically, Denny is struck down with inoperable cancer and he is destined to die. At the moment of his death, however, Denny's spirit passes from his destroyed body and into the body of a drug addicted young man - who lies, clinging to life in a trauma room, on the other side of the world.
Andy DeVries stands on a precipice. He lives life on a razor's edge, dealing in drugs and moving through a dangerous underworld of criminals and con artists. He is alienated from his father and he stands to lose the only thing that matters to him - a place at a prestigious Conservatory for classical guitar in Chicago. For Andy has a love of the guitar as fierce as Denny's once was. Having been snatched from a near fatal overdose Andy is suddenly plagued by dreams of another life - a life he has never known but one that is as familiar to him as if it were his own. He dreams of a love he has never experienced yet he knows this love intuitively and deeply.
Having been given a chance at redemption Andy begins to change. Something has been awakened in him - a spirit of a once proud man. As Sonya grieves for her lost love Andy begins a quest to find her - knowing her only by the dreams of a place called Hambledown...and the memories of a stranger.
