Dream Countryby Luanne Rice
Synopses & Reviews
The ties that bind a broken family can be the strongest of all....
Bestselling novelist Luanne Rice writes of the abiding love within families — and how it can save us even in the most difficult of times. The truth and beauty in her stories will break your heart and mend it again, stronger and more full of hope than ever before.
Years ago, just out of college, jewelry maker Daisy Tucker traveled to the wilderness of Wyoming’s Wind River Mountains in search of inspiration for her art. What she found was rancher James Tucker, a man with the wilderness inside him.
Their life together was as close to paradise as a family could get — until the day their three-year-old son, Jake, disappeared without a trace. Her heart broken, her marriage in tatters, Daisy returned to Connecticut with Jake’s twin sister, Sage.
Now, thirteen years later, Sage is on a dangerous cross-country pilgrimage to the father she longs for. As Daisy returns to the Tucker ranch to wait and pray for Sage’s safe arrival, she learns that you cannot close the door on the past, but sometimes, if you step through it, it can lead you home....
Filled with a wild and unpredictable beauty, Dream Country is a novel you’ll never want to end — even as you can’t wait to finish it.
It was just an argument, one of hundreds Daisy Tucker must have had with her teenage daughter, Sage, over the years. But this one had ended differently, with Sage gone from their Connecticut home the next morning, leaving behind only a brief note: “I have to go.” Daisy tried not to overreact, tried to remind herself this was different from what had happened thirteen years earlier to Sages twin brother, Jake. This was different from a three-year-old boy disappearing in the canyons of Wyoming, never to be found. Sage was sixteen and resourceful. She would be found.

Now, as their daughter makes a dangerous cross-country pilgrimage to the father she longs for, Daisy will return to the place that took everything she had....
Filled with a wild and unpredictable beauty, Dream Country is a novel youll never want to end—even as you cant wait to finish it.
