    A Rewarding Read

    I think Sara Donati is a wonderful author, capable of very interesting story lines; she mixes romance and love of family. I thought at the beginning this might be just a book about "fluff" but not so. I highly recommend the Wilderness Series and have enjoyed every book immensely. Want to get lost in a wonderful story? Read Sara Donati's Wilderness Series. You won't be sorry. And, yes, men might enjoy this series, too. Might give your man some well-needed ideas, ladies!

    Enjoyed! Good read.

    Enjoyed Dawn on a Distant Shore. It was nice to take a break from Lake in the Clouds. But by the end I was ready to go back as I was really missing the town! Almost like I live there and had been away on a journey. Great book and I plan to continue the series.

    Thoroughly enjoyed

    Loved the story. Could have stood better editing...it seemed that they went on and on at sea, and sure found other ships easily. But despite that I enjoyed the story.

    I Also Recommend:

    Wilderness Series #2

    This is a good follow up to "Into the Wilderness" The same characters are here, and new adventures begin. About halfway through the book, I knew what the outcome was going to be. I wouldn't say it's predictable, because Donati was able to weave an intricate tale to reach that outcome, and there are a few surprises along the way. If you enjoy historical fiction, with a dose of romance, adventure, intrigue and betrayel, I think you would enjoy this book (this entire series for that matter).

    Exciting historical fiction

    In 1794 at the edge of the wilderness in Upstate New York, Elizabeth and Nathaniel Bonner live in marital bliss. Their idyllic life turns even more blissful when Elizabeth gives birth to twins. However, Nathaniel soon learns that the British government in Canada has arrested his father, Hawkeye. <P>Nathaniel travels to Canada to help his father, but instead finds himself incarcerated as an American spy. When Elizabeth discovers that her spouse could be hung for espionage, she takes her two children and Nathaniel¿s pre-teenage daughter from another marriage in order to intercede on his behalf. Her efforts go astray when someone kidnaps the twins. Elizabeth and Nathaniel follow the trail to his ancestral home in Scotland where they hope to once again become the loving family they were before Hawkeye was imprisoned. <P>The sequel to the exciting INTO THE WILDERNESS, DAWN ON A DISTANT SHORE continues the post Revolutionary War adventures of the Bonner family. The lead couple is an invigorating duo who will charm readers even though at times their discussions seem so emoted that they feel comical. The support cast provides humor and depth as they help bring the late eighteenth century to life. The story line is impressive as the plot fully entertains the audience. Sara Donati creates an Americana epic that will receive much acclaim from fans and critics. <P>Harriet Klausner
