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!
Thirteen years later, Jake's twin sister, Sage is 16 and finds herself pregnant, wanting her baby, but afraid to disappoint her mother. She leaves her a note as the book opens, and takes off on a difficult trek from Connecticut to Wyoming through bad weather and much soul-searching in hopes of re-uniting with her father, and learning about her past. Even 'though the story as it reaches its climax, seems a bit far-fetched, the dialogue and exquisite descriptions along the way make it completely enthralling to the reader. The descriptive scenery of the Wyoming landscape and the spiritual pull of Native American influence make it different from the usual. I enjoyed it, and love Luanne Rice's writing. It keeps you interested and turning those pages.
Daisy traveled west many years ago in search of colors that would mesh with the jewelry she creates. When she reached the Wyoming ranch of taciturn James Tucker, she fell in love and they married. Daisy gave birth to fraternal twins, Sage and Jake and everyone knew the foursome would live happily ever after. However, three-year-old Jake disappears while on a round up with his dad. The marriage disintegrated and Daisy accompanied by Sage returned to her home state of Connecticut.
For the next thirteen years James fails even to see his daughter once as he keeps his vow to his son to never forsake him dead or alive. Sage feels the pull of her birth state and when she becomes pregnant, journeys to her father's ranch where her parents greet her. The adventures of the Tucker crew have just begun.
Luanne Rice always tells a strong story about what happens in life when bad things happen to good people. This novel is character driven with heroes and villains that feel as if they come from the real world. Ms. Rice has a talent for hiding her heroes and villains from her audience. The poignant plot requires a handy tissue box as Ms. Rice leaves the reader needing tissues.
