Beyond the Blue by Andrea MacPherson

Today on January Magazine, my review of Beyond the Blue by Andrea MacPherson. I mostly like it.

MacPherson shepherds her careful creations through the eventful times in which they live. All the while, she pushes them through the hopelessness and, in a way -- and in each character’s own way -- finally past it. At the end of Beyond the Blue and upon reflection, one discovers that MacPherson’s lyrical metaphors have followed us home. Though we thought all along that the journey she was guiding us on was a historical one, after a while one sees that aspects of this journey aren't so very different from our own.

The review is here.
