Do you believe in the power of dreams?
Way down south on Marigny Street in the heart of New Orleans, the land of Catholic intercessions, purgatory, and supernatural superstitions, young Evangeline Chenier dreams of a radiant boy who saves her from a storm. She takes the dream seriously – in her family, dreams are sometimes more than dreams. Sometimes they foretell the future. Sometimes they create it.
Years later, Eva is no longer the same wistful girl but a hardened woman who no longer believes in dreams. Losing faith in her gift, she becomes lost in a nightmare of emotion, mourning her son, separating from her husband, and stewing in a dead-end job. And then fate brings her an unlikely surprise: one of the most famous movie stars in the world, Gabriel Roberts.
Caught by something in his eyes, Eva agrees to show him the real Big Easy on his last night in New Orleans—an evening that turns into four dreamy days spent recapturing lost faith and discovering a love neither expected. Realizing Gabriel is the boy from her childhood dream, Eva must leave everything behind—her husband, her family, her history, and the beautiful city she calls home—and gamble it all for the dream that has saved her on MARIGNY STREET.

This is a captivating tale about a young woman whom we know right away has struggled with loss in her life. Eva has a unique ability to dream of possible future revelations, but this gift is just one more let down. Until one day when everything changes.
This enthralling tale is as graceful as it is frustrating. The cliffhanger and ending actually makes you feel relief in a way that is subtle, but needed. The setting of New Orleans is noteworthy; you can tell Ms. Welch knows Orleans very well and has a deep infinity with this beautiful place.
The romance is clean and wholesome. However, if you usually read or prefer some serious hanky panky, do not pass this experience up. MARIGNY STREET offered me something I have never experienced before with a fiction book--it reads like non-fiction. Right from the first paragraph, this remarkable novel feels as if you are reading a true story. This is a beautiful read that will make you seriously wonder "where will Ms. Welch take us to next?"
This book is the perfect stormy weather read; we have been having so many! Weekend off, it was raining heavy outside and this book was the perfect one to read!
