Dramatic and realistic bittersweet tale Oct 7, 2006
Underwater Dreams: A Modern Greek Tragedy by physician James Rouman is the serious-minded saga of woman in Greece given in marriage to a virtual stranger in Wisconsin. Traveling the seas to reach her new home, she bears a son, watches him grow, live, earn a career as a medical doctor, and settle down with a partner unable to give him children. Themes of adoption, single parenthood, drug addiction and elder care appear in this dramatic and realistic bittersweet tale, which paints thoroughly believable characters to the very end.
