The Blue Geography continues the story
of the characters in the critically acclaimed short novel, Wintershine.
A mercurial book about the quest for freedom and the pursuit of
happiness, it interweaves four stories which span the 20th century;
those of Beatrice, her mother, Louise, her Uncle Robin (all of whom
narrate) and that of Beatrice's uncle, Lyman Roy...
An American myth, a chase after a dream that spans
continents and oceans, a long rainbow - in this case, Scotland to
Maui, this is a book that explores the concept of boundlessness
and a quest for freedom of the spirit.

"So real, so rich -- and poignant. Beautifully
written. Fabulous!! I love this book!" by someone who

"The Blue Geography is marked by lyrical passages
of memory reminiscent (to me) of the writing of Louise Erdrich and
by sharply etched dialogue. While the book's subtitle, "A Romance,"
may encourage some readers to think of the popular romance genre,
the book is in fact a serious, well-wrought work of literature."
George Uba, poet, Chair, Dept. of English, Cal State, Northridge
"This is the story of a family told in multiple voices. It
is more than that, however. The prose shimmers with the details
of the landscape in all seasons, and the characters' voices present
life as they see it and know it in unusual clarity for each persona...I
love this book!" Eileen Granfors, fiction writer Amazon Review
"The Blue Geography is a beautiful book. Eve La Salle
Caram takes us with her to revel in the details of life that bring
us into he beauty and clarity of memory and emotion..."Arnold
I Miller, Amazon Review.
