"Sacred Country" by Rose Tremain

No comments
This was my introduction to Rose Tremain, and she captures in "The Sacred Country" a full and unorthodox dream. This dream features people ill-suited to their bodies, people ill-suited to nurturing their families, people ill-suited to the dreams of others. Talk about unorthodox - consider a transgender woman-turned-man leaving London for Tennessee, and her brother pursuing a country singing career in Nashville. These principal characters yearn for the grand Someplace Else, and finally do find it.
This lacks the soaring construct of Ms. Tremain's brilliant, transcendent "The Colour," but it's well worth your time in its own right.
