Set in Nova Scotia, Dreammaker is a story about a young man’s life in the late 1940's.

Every film starts its life as a ‘pitch’. It’s the first thing all Producers, Directors and Actors insist on reading. Screen plays or scripts are either original or adapted from existing books, they are written in an abridged way vs the traditional way of storytelling on purpose. Creative people want to fill in their own blanks, they don’t want their own visions limited. Dreammaker was written as a screen play, I knew when I decided to publish that this format was not going to be for everyone. I also knew that there would be readers out there who might be looking for something more challenging.

I want you to take the helm. Read my words and direct your own movie. I feel viewers today are extremely astute and that their minds are more powerful than our industry sometimes gives them credit for. Fill in the blanks, choose your own actors, direct your mind’s eye to what you want to see. Each person’s version will be based on their own life experiences. Enjoy your journey.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Commonwealth and State of Wonder, comes Ann Patchett’s most powerful novel to date: a richly moving story that explores the indelible bond between two siblings, the house of their childhood, and a past that will not let them go. The Dutch House is the story of a paradise lost, a tour de force that digs deeply into questions of inheritance, love and forgiveness, of how we want to see ourselves and of who we really are.

At the end of the Second World War, Cyril Conroy combines luck and a single canny investment to begin an enormous real estate empire, propelling his family from poverty to enormous wealth. His first order of business is to buy the Dutch House, a lavish estate in the suburbs outside of Philadelphia. Meant as a surprise for his wife, the house sets in motion the undoing of everyone he loves.

The story is told by Cyril’s son Danny, as he and his older sister, the brilliantly acerbic and self-assured Maeve, are exiled from the house where they grew up by their stepmother. The two wealthy siblings are thrown back into the poverty their parents had escaped from and find that all they have to count on is one another. It is this unshakeable bond between them that both saves their lives and thwarts their futures.

Set over the course of five decades, The Dutch House is a dark fairy tale about two smart people who cannot overcome their past. Despite every outward sign of success, Danny and Maeve are only truly comfortable when they’re together. Throughout their lives they return to the well-worn story of what they’ve lost with humor and rage. But when at last they’re forced to confront the people who left them behind, the relationship between an indulged brother and his ever-protective sister is finally tested.
