Praise For The Cure for Dreaming

"A strong female protagonist, realistic dialogue, and well-written prose allow readers to become immersed in Olivia’s rather unique (and sometimes frightening) world."

— Amanda C. Buschmann, Atascocita Middle School, Humble, TX

"Winters creates a rich, gothic backdrop (further brought to life through period photographs and illustrations) for a story that will open many readers’ eyes to historical injustices inflicted on women—injustices with plenty of present-day parallels."


"Winters continues to be a refreshing, incisive talent with a unique perspective."

— Daniel Kraus

"Fluid boundaries between what’s tangible and what’s intuited, lucidity and unconsciousness, sanity and madness are particularly apt for this story about hypnotism and emotional manipulation."

— Katie Bircher

"...readers will cheer as Olivia strikes out on her own, finally free of her father’s control."
