A mental escape.

I really enjoyed Into The Wilderness. Every time I had to put the book down I couldn't wait till I was about to pick it back up. I know it's a good book when after I put the book down I keep thinking about the characters and reliving the scenes I have just read, and wondering what could possibly happen next. I like that there was a little real history involved, but not so much that it over shadowed the love story. I was so happy to find out that Into The Wilderness is the first in a series of book involving Nathaniel, Elizabeth, and the rest of residents of Paradise.

Good Read but no originality!

As I am reading this book, I keep thinking of Outlander! Then I see that so many other readers have compared it to Outlander! THEN...the Outlander characters appear in the novel! Well I wasn't impressed. If I already thought Nathaniel Bonner was an American version of Jamie Fraser, this sured it up for me. Elizabeth (the main female character) is basically another Claire Fraser. She is even given the name (Bone in her Back). So I guess it is a mild version of Oulander but to be honest, it's more like Sara Donati picked up the Frasers, dusted them off, and plopped them in Nathaniel and Elizabeth Bonners clothes...no origality! Plus...if you are an avid Jane Austen fan...be prepared, this author has also stole several of her scenes from Pride and Prejudice as well. When Richard Todd first asks Elizabeth to marry him I had to look at the front of the book again to be sure I was still reading Into the Wilderness...come on! This author has a wonderful writing style. She can pull you into the book, and the characters SHE created and didn't borrow from other authors are very good. My suggestion to Ms. Donati is keep writing BUT trust yourself! You don't need someone elses characters! I would recommend the book, truthfully I loved both Outlander and Pride and Prejudice so I liked the book, but I would like to see more of this authors work, her original work. In the end a good book and I think I will read the next one. Hope this helps other readers.

    Nice Try

    Well...I was very hopeful with this book since I'm a big fan of Gabaldon's Outlander. But...It wasn't as I expected. The characters seem promising at first, but then it all gets too predictable. Yes, it has the touch of romance and adventure, but it stays short, and sometimes I found myself trying to skip on pages (something that never ever happened with Outlander). Not a good review...sorry.
