Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After years of being kept in the dark, Ariel Rankin learns that her birth father is a man named Kip Calder who went to Vietnam and then disappeared before she was born. The discovery shakes her world to the core. Realizing she can no longer elude her past if she is to have a future, Ariel leaves behind her life in New York City and heads west to New Mexico to find the mysterious Calder-and the truth of who she is. Audaciously weaving social and magic realism, award-winning author Bradford Morrow delivers a moving exploration of the search for identity and reconciliation with the past.

Synopsis:

From the author of "Trinity Fields" comes a dramatic, beautifully written story of the search for home and a place in the world. "A panoramic view of postwar American obsessions, paranoias, and moral problems."--"The New York Times Book Review."

Charlotte, January 24, 2007 (view all comments by Charlotte)
I just finished reading Ariels Crossing and highly recommend it.
The story takes place in Santa Fe New Mexico and is largely centered around the little chapel there Chimayo, which was a sacred Indian ground.
Ariels search for her past and how to come to terms with it is one all of us have probably experienced at some point in one way or another. It is about the strength of the human spirit, family love and love that extends beyond ones own family and the joy and heartbreak of being in love.
The book takes us to the place we all must come to at some point - the crossroads where we have to make a life changing decision and go with it for better or worse. Wonderful characters, beautiful description of the areas of New Mexico and the horrors nuclear testing brings to our world.
