Blu Rose and the Land of Saunt, Blu Rose and the Land of Saunt, written by Robert Pew, presents to the readers two stories. The first is thematic “by learning to know yourself you will learn to know others”; the second story thread is “people mature to make the dreams of their minds the dreams in their hearts.” A thought-provoking poem about a library’s knowledge completes the third part of this book. The author presents to reader three stories in three different forms – a novelette, long-short story, and poetry.

Blu Rose tells the story of a slender, 26-year-old woman who left her homeland and traveled to America to discover herself –it was her father’s last wish. In America, by chance, she acquires a magic wand while in Cairo, Illinois where the Mississippi and Ohio rivers join. This venture sets her thoughts to a pyramid believed to be a mere myth in the southern hills of Illinois. When she discovered the pyramid, she removed the magic wand from her skirt pocket and waved it while speaking words as its previous owner would. Suddenly, to her amazement, a blue light form of the pyramid is shaped. While Blu Rose is dancing about within it, her deceased father appears out of nowhere. Her father tells Blu Rose that she will become a visionary and alchemist and will learn of many new worlds in her travels. She will learn these grand works of alchemy and vision with the powers of her new found wand. However, she needs to preserve in this chosen field to serve the people. She must conquer to master her work and alight with the true wisdom of her world. Blu Rose must proceed as instructed on a journey to the point of the three rivers, and acquire from the alchemist a proper supply of his finest chemicals. Will she be able to do it and how will it help her in understanding her reasons for living?

The Land of Saunt tells of the story of Ginger who is trying to find a way out of a humdrum life as a farmer’s daughter. She makes a wish to her grandmother’s bequeathed crystal ball for a future of adventure and successes. She is fortunate enough to gain opportunity toward such a future, but things are not at all as they should be when they start to unfold –first as a dream. Ginger has hazed her world of dream –through no fault of her own– with her crystal ball. The Geometric people of Saunt tell her she has only the dream time she is in to solve everyone’s problems. The clock of time has no shadow, there is no clear water to drink, and the Christians want to Christianize the ancient Geometric people, before the Fighting Brennons follow their demigods and cannibalize them. Ginger finds the solution out of her dream with the help of five royal crystals, a water drop, and the fairies. Her new dream becomes the desires of her heart. This lesson learned proves much more valuable to her future then wishing on crystal balls. Lastly, the lengthy poem: Walking in Confidence talks about a life filled with attained knowledge people often seek out from the library and how it shapes thinking and understanding life –walking with confidence among others.

Blu Rose and the Land of Saunt comes together in a singular harmonious logic –complexity made simple. Readers will find realism, romance, wonder, sarcasm, and humor in this literary masterpiece. Together or separate, they try to entertain without effort, and offer to lend a hand in getting on with learning to understand yourself and others.
