The second edition of Banking on Dreams was published by WestBow Press in October 2017. For this new edition, I added four photos, included connections to the American dream, changed a few items, and added more Christian content. The added Christian elements included multiple bible verses. For example, page 76 of Banking on Dreams, second edition, has this verse: "For the whole law is summed up in a single commandment, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself'" (Gal. 5:14 NRSV). After this verse is quoted by Lisa, who is the novel's protagonist, discussion happens about people doing volunteer work in order to love and to help others.
Dr. Karen Petit is the author of Banking on Dreams, Mayflower Dreams, Roger Williams in an Elevator, Unhidden Pilgrims, Amazing Holiday Paws, and Holidays Amaze. She is thankful to God for the many miracles in her life.
