        Late one night back in July 2002, I fell asleep and had a dream It was unlike any dream I had before, or since It was like watching an extended movie, and it ended with instructions for me in the rolling credits I awoke in shock and glanced at the clock next to my bed, only to discover what seemed like hours of sleep had only been a few minutes.I got up, sat at my desk and spent the rest of the night writing everything down Never having written anything before, I took the next few weeks to follow the instructions from the dream share the story in a novel.After a few months of being inspired by the story, but at the same time feeling overwhelmed with the project, I put it away However, I couldn t forget it.Now, after than nine years of struggling with the process and battling against my own self doubt, I m ready to share the story The Living Room was my dream Bill Rolfe


    1. A book about miracles, subtle romance but lots of heartwarming little encounters.This book is very well written and it tells the story of an arrogant jerk (that's my first impression of him and by the end of the book I can't remember why I thought so!), Daniel, who is a workaholic and finally decided to take a big step forward to change his routine lifestyle.Inheriting a house in England, he flew over and met Claire, the pediatric nurse. It was love at first sight for them. When Claire noticed t [...]

    2. PDF Via Author for honest reviewCan anything make Daniel Clay look past his very successful career and money? What more should he really want or need? He has his stunning good looks, more money than he can even spend, and a career as an investment adviser that would make anyone jealous of him and his success. He is completely deemed a workaholic even by himself. He hasn't taken a vacation in forever and he seems to believe he is not meant to have love or family because he doesn't have time after [...]

    3. When I got this request, I wasn't entirely sure what to make of the story line.It gave you something about the book but also gave nothing away.I was also worried about it being a real tear jerker. I'm not much for those.The living room story is a really good read. Also a fast one at only 155 pages, I devored it in one sitting.There is a faith element to The Living Room Story, though not heavy. A non religious person could read and still enjoy the book. (I did)Daniel Clay, the main character had [...]

    4. If you are looking for a well written, feel good book with a touch of spiritualism, look no further. Bill Rolfe delivers a book filled with hope, compassion and strength.Daniel Clay seems to have it all - a beautiful corner apartment in a high rise anyone would be proud to live in, a prestigious job with an even more prestigious firm in New York, a love of the work he does and the thrill of being considered for a coveted position as a partner in his firm. He has dated a few women, but none had b [...]

    5. Normally I really like books because of the plot or the characters I can really connect with. This time I had a different kind of feeling. I think I liked this book so much because it kept me reading. It read like a train and I wasn't able to stop the train or jump from it. Author Bill Rolfe writes a beautiful story for us, he once saw in a dream. A story without unnecessary elements (I like that a lot). A good story nothing more, nothing less. A story about two people who happen to meet in some [...]

    6. I believe in miracles and I do believe that sincere prayers can result in miracles – I’ve personally witnessed this, yet at the same time, I don’t exactly believe in dreams, I rarely have dreams. So when I learnt that this book was based on dream that the author, Bill Rolfe had and in the dream he was asked to write this book, I was a bit skeptical. Having read the book, I am so glad that I did. The main protagonist of the book – Daniel Clay, has worked hard to make his way up the corpor [...]

    7. For more reviews, check out Books For YA!The Living Room is a heartfelt story about life and death, love and sacrifices, family and, let’s not forget, miracles.Daniel Clay has a very bland character in the beginning. He was very serious all the time, he’s super workaholic, and he doesn’t have enough time for himself. So when his boss and godfather, Art encouraged (more like commanded) him to take a vacation, Daniel doesn’t have a choice but to do what he was told.So Daniel went to Englan [...]

    8. Daniel Clay is a successful businessman, who has everything in life, except family. His boss tells him he needs to make time to meet someone, so when he finds out he's inherited a house in England, it's the perfect chance for him to take a long-overdue vacation. Once there, he meets a pediatric nurse who cares for dying children, and she arranges for children who are close to death to stay in a beautiful room in his house, which she says will make the children feel alive. When Daniel has trouble [...]

    9. The Living Room is a short story that is actually one of Bill Rolfe’s dreams.Daniel Clay started in the mail room of his guardian’s, Art, investment firm and is now almost a partner. Before being given the partnership, Art tells him he needs to change his non-existent personal life to an existent personal life. When an uncle he never knew existed leaves him a house in England Daniel decides to head to England to check out the house and take a short vacation.After a mishap while fixing up the [...]

    10. The Living Room by Bill Rolfe is a really nice story. As you read in the above section Bill had a dream and wrote down what he dreamed. I enjoyed it but if I wrote it I would have changed a few parts. It ended nicely, but I would have liked a few different things to happen. I won’t tell you what they were so it doesn’t ruin the ending for you. Mainly this book is about Daniel a successful business man who didn’t take time for himself and just thought of his career. Then he inherits a house [...]

    11. what an amazing and touching storyis is not my usual genre, but after speaking with the author I was intrigued and had to read. once I began, I found it hard to stop and put it down,I could quite easily have finished this book in one sitting if things like work, and needing to eat hadn't got in the way.It was quite a profound story and a belief in miracles is required, something I possess plenty of.Daniel was such a likeable character, despite his success he didn't stomp on the "little" people i [...]

    12. Bill Rolfe asked me to read and review his book “The Living Room” and I have to admit I was quite worried about what the book had in store for me. This is not the type of book I would usually read and I didn’t know what to expect, however, I’m so glad I accepted Bill’s request as this is an amazing book.Everything from the style of writing to the story line shows a great deal of talent. Bill has created a main character that everyone will feel sympathy for and support along his journey [...]

    13. The Living Room is an intriguing look inside the life of Daniel Clay, a man who believes he has it all in life. After realizing that perhaps he is missing something important, he takes a vacation to England to settle a family estate. There he meets Claire and finds what he has been missing. He finds true meaning in his life and fills a void in his soul he didn't know existed before Claire.The novel is a wonderfully heartfelt story, even if the plot seemed a bit cliche and overused. The backstory [...]

    14. I cried. What a touching book. I was not prepared for The Living Room and the emotions it would stir up. Bill Rolfe has taken a dream he had, and turned it into an emotional story of faith, love and the importance of family first that will touch every heart, and perhaps remind this busy world what truly matters. To be honest thinking of this book today, after so many children were thoughtlessly killed over the weekend, I can't help but feel it's message is even more important. Hold to your famil [...]

    15. I thoroughly enjoyed this fast-moving, quick read! This book flows well and the writing is clean and tight. It is heavily plot-driven; consequently, the characters are not as well developed. Because of this, the book doesn't touch the heart strings as deeply as I expected it too. But on the other hand, the book could be depressing, but because of its fast pace, it is not a tear jerker but just an intriguing read. "The Living Room" could be a movie -- it actually even reads like one! In the end, [...]

    16. This book is fairly short, at 155 pages, so the story moves along at a pretty fast clip. Most of the time, this works well for me though I did find it a bit convenient, if sweet, to have the two main characters instantly fall in love. I think the limited length of the story also led to pretty one dimensional characters (which isn’t always bad – such as in Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere). Hence, the story is pretty predictable. With that said, there were still several small insights into the huma [...]

    17. I received a copy of "The Living Room" from the author in exchange for an honest review. I had no prior association with the author or his writing prior to receiving this request.The book is a very touching love story that incorporates another story about terminally ill children. If you have compassion for your fellow man/woman, you will be deeply touched by reading this book. I have been awed and humbled. This book provoked so many emotions. It will stay with me for a very long time to come. I [...]

    18. This was a very quick, sweet read. The author managed to portray some very real and serious issues about dying and letting go and still managed to keep it light enough that the sweet romance that develops between the two main characters realistic enough to sit back and enjoy.Because this did move quickly, I think it lacked a little bit in the character department as far as feeling connected to the lives and feelings of all the characters but overall it was a sweet read that I am glad I read and [...]

    19. Where to beginobably the worst writing I have ever read. Perhaps some good editing could save this story. Way too many loose ends making the storyline so implausible and paragraphs that you have to read over; not to savor the prose, but to try and understand what is happening. I admire the writer in his bold attempt to produce a labour of love, but this book misses the mark. If this book had not been a book group choice I would have never finished it.

    20. Yes, it was a fairy tale. But I couldn't get into the main character at all. Or any of them, really. Question: if you inherited a house from an uncle you didn't know you had, wouldn't you be the least bit curious about him? Apparently not.

    21. I liked The Living Room. It was a nice simple read and I enjoyed that the concept of miracles wasn't too cheesy. The character Daniel actually became someone I aspire to be like. If this story was all a dream of Rolfe's, that's a pretty impressive dream.

    22. A great job, good looks, and plenty of money. But something is missing in Daniel Clay's life. In an easy to read style Bill Rolfe has crafted a moving testament on finding love. I found it to be an inspiring read.

    23. I found this story surprisingly original and far from what I was expecting. I liked the way it was written and the emotions it conveyed.

    24. This book is a nice, easy read with a lovely story. It focuses on a man with an empty life, who is offered a chance that he didn't even know he needed. I really enjoyed it.
