No one understands all the complexities of love, resentments, heartaches, and healing better than New York Times bestseller Luanne Rice, whose Follow the Stars Home was praised by People magazine as a story of “heartbreak and redemption.” In Dream Country, she once again draws us into a splintered family’s search for hope.
Daisy had gone to the Wyoming wilderness in search of inspiration for her jewelry making. She found rancher James Tucker, a man with the wilderness inside him. Their life together was close to paradise—until their three-year-old son Jake disappeared and was never found. Her marriage in tatters, Daisy returned home to Connecticut, taking with her from Wyoming two things: her daughter, Jake’s twin, and her livelihood, the jewelry she etches with symbols of Indian legend. Wyoming had taken everything else.
Thirteen years later, Wyoming wants more. Sage, now sixteen, has run away, and Daisy fears that Sage’s thirst to see the land and father of her dreams is driving her westward on freight trains and farm roads. Terrified, her mother flies out to where James Tucker rides the range with a heart turned to stone, still scouring the canyons for Jake. Wary of each other, Daisy and James wait and pray for the safe arrival of their one remaining child. And they’ll need all the strength and wisdom they can find, to learn that you cannot close the door on the past. In fact, sometimes, if you’re willing to step through it, that door to the past can lead you home.
Review: In Dream Country, Luanne Rice describes the reverberations that tragedy can have on a family. Before Daisy and James Tucker lost their 3-year-old son, Jake, in the mountains of Wyoming, they thought nothing could shake their marriage. Daisy had moved west looking for adventure and discovered a man and a landscape that nourished the deepest parts of her soul. With James and their twins, Jake and Sage, Daisy found courage and inspiration for her artwork. Soon after Jake disappeared, Daisy returned to Connecticut with Sage, determined to live a life of comforting reserve. Thirteen years later, a pregnant and isolated Sage feels Wyoming calling. After arguing with Daisy, she embarks on a cross-country trip to discover her father and her family's past.
Rice has a talent for describing people's complex and conflicting emotions. As Sage travels across the country, her love for her unborn child grows, while her first love unravels. Tragedy both unites and separates Daisy and James, and age and infirmity begin to eat away at the love of James's father and his girlfriend. Though the underlying premise feels a bit contrived, Rice's realistic dialogue and exquisite descriptions are completely convincing. --Nancy R.E. O'Brien
