Review by Library Journal (2001-09-01)

In this engaging family saga, narrator Laural Merlington is outstanding as the voice of three generations of the Tucker clan. It seems that true love magically materializes for those who purchase Daisy Tucker's Native American-inspired jewelry designs. Daisy, however, has not been that lucky in love, and, after nursing a broken heart for years, she seems to be on the brink of another tragedy. Her 16-year-old pregnant daughter, Sage, has taken off on a cross-country pilgrimage to her father's Wyoming cattle ranch.

Because Sage's twin brother, Jake, disappeared into the ranch's canyons at age three, Daisy can't bear the thought of Sage returning there. When Daisy arrives at the ranch, she must confront the tragic past, as well as her still powerful feelings for her ex-husband. Vivid descriptions of the Wyoming landscape, quality character development, and just the right amount of suspense combine to make this an excellent choice for all popular fiction collections.

Review by Library Journal (2000-12-01)

Daisy finds happiness in Wyoming until her three-year-old son disappears near the family's ranch. Now, after 13 years, she is chasing his errant twin sister back to the land and the husband she deserted in her despair.

Book description

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 Sage’s 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.

Years ago Daisy had traveled to Wyoming’s Wind River Mountains in search of inspiration for her art and had found a man with the wilderness inside him. James Tucker was a rancher, bound to the wild land he loved, and together he and Daisy created a small paradise for their family—until the day their little boy vanished without a trace. 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 you’ll never want to end—even as you can’t wait to finish it.
