I read Dream Country about a year ago and I was so discusted with the book...well I can't even put in in words. I grew up in Dubois, Wy, the town that the story takes place, and it is appearant to me that Ms. Rice has never visited Dubois, and possibly never stepped foot in the state of Wyoming all together. Her discriptions of Wyoming life, the country surrounding Dubois, living on a ranch, livestock management, the town of Dubois itself, wildlife, and well too many things to mention continually ring false to a Wyoming native.
I feel Ms. Rice has insulted me and other Wyoming residents by writing this unresearched book when she appearantly has no knowledge of the makings of its content.
I had enjoyed a couple of her books in the past, but after reading this load of crap I will never read another of her books for fear that it will be filled with rubbish and lies. I would challenge Ms. Rice to research her books better in the future, or stick to writing what she knows.

I am a big Luanne Rice Fan and Dream Country is another, absolutely wonderfully written book by Rice. I could not, once again, put down one of her books, and read the book in two days.
Dream Country is about finding the love of your life and sharing and building that forever life, and yet, that once in a lifetime dream comes shattering down on you with the devastating loss of one of your children. Jack and Daisy are ripped apart by the mysterious disappearance of Jack, their darling three year old. Unable to cope and fearing for Jack's twin, Daisy flees to Connecticut from Wyoming with Sage, Jack's sister, divorcing Jack in the process.
With Sage's disappearance at sixteen, Daisy's life is once again thrown into turmoil. Knowing that Sage is on her way to Wyoming to see her father, Daisy flies to Wyoming and has to confront all that she escaped from, including the undying love, that she still has for her ex-husband.
Rice brings together another heart-warming tale of family conflicts, enduring love and the mysteries of the heart. The ending will blow readers away and have them once again grabbing their Kleenex! Rice fans will delight in her departure from the shores of Connecticut to the roaming and wildness frontier of Wyoming.
Readers will once again be captivated, drawn, and immersed into the lives of the Tuckers. Rice weaves magic once again! Wonderful, captivating book!

I've never written one of these reviews before but felt I had to for this book so that other readers might give it a chance. I loved this book, and belive it to be the best book she has written so far. I was skeptical about reading this at first due to reviews that I had read. The setting of this book differs from most of Rice's books being that most of the story does not take place in New England. This book deals with love lost and found again and with how every one deals differently with the loss of loved ones. I could not put this one down and ended up reading it cover to cover in one day.

I have read all of Luann Rice's books, but this was the most disappointing one in terms of story and character development. I just felt that it dragged on, and the "mystery" is easily solved less than midway through the novel. The change of location was refreshing-away from the coastal waters of New England-but it is not enough to overcome the storyline and thin characterizations. Maybe she needs to return to Connecticut.

Dream Country by Luanne Rice is a novel that follows the lives of different individuals in the story. Those individuals are Daisy, Sage, and James. Daisy Tucker, a young mother, has always been an independent person. Sage, her daughter, dislikes her mother as she does not get Sage at different times. Sage runs away one day with her boyfriend Ben. They hop on a train and are headed to Wyoming to see Sage's father. The one thing that Daisy does not know, besides Sage running away, is that Sage is pregnant. James Tucker, Sage's father, loves being on the ranch. The only problem is, is that he won't leave without finding his son, Jake. His son disappeared mysteriously in a canyon one day and James thinks that it is all his fault. This is a romantic novel, so if you enjoy these novels, I recommend it.

I think this is one of Ms. Rice's best books yet. I loved the Wyoming setting and the characters Jake and Sage. The Indian folklore thrown in was an added treat. To be honest, I was getting a little tired of the Connecticut shoreline and this fresh setting renewed my love for her stories. I think this book would be perfect for a sequel! I love books that make me cry and and that renew my faith in the power of love and family. A fabulous story!

I've read several of Ms. Rice's books and this was the one I've liked the least. I'm from a large city but even I couldn't believe that calves were all taken from the cows for slaughter. The information about puppy mills is pretty accurate and very sad but wolves in Wyoming - I don't think so - probably coyettes. There were too many coincidences in this book - especially the finding of the lost child. Everything was tied up very nicely in the end - too nicely. Very predictable for the most part and extremely disappointing. If this had been the first book of her's I'd read it would also have been the last.
