INTO THE WILDERNESS (The Wilderness Series Book 1)
About this deal
Thank you for supporting my small business and allowing me to continue providing you a reliable resource for clean book ratings. Robbie, Bears, Hannah and all of the characters that made this journey come to fruition has been amazingly captured by Donati, she is special and I'm sorry this has been a first for me from her but I can assure you all, won't be my last.
Tammy spends her days playing working in IT, crossing paths occasionally with her husband and being the “cool mom” (at least in her mind) to her teen and tween girls. To save the Mountain and preserve the heritage of the Mohawks, Nathaniel and Elizabeth devise their own scheme to get control of the land. A lushly written novel…Donati, a skillful storyteller, easily weaves historical fact with romantic ambience to create a dense, complex design…Exemplary historical fiction, boasting a heroine with a real and tangible presence. The romance kicks off from the get-go, with Nathaniel and Elizabeth meeting within the first 10 pages and an obvious attraction kindling.But a pretty woman who stands up to a room full of strange men and defends herself -- that's something else. I loved how compelling their complex connection was; how they were drawn to each other despite all the odds, and everything they endured, fought against, and fought for. The book goes beyond an analysis of sin by opening the path from sin to redemption, from unhappiness to joy, finally laying out a path from the despair of sin to the joy of spiritual renewal and freedom. Diana is one of the most supportive and generous people I have ever known, but still I was taken by surprise.
Donati’s acknowledgements come before the story, in which she showers thanks upon Gabaldon for helping her with it. Listen, when you are a mom of teenage and tween girls, escaping reality is a mode of survival and a hot book boyfriend is key to achieving that. Interweaving the fate of the Mohawk Nation with the destiny of two lovers, Sara Donati's compelling novel creates a complex, profound, passionate portrait of an emerging America. Trying to control her own destiny with a determined nature and a deep desire for equality, the village of Paradise seems to be designed to drive Elizabeth crazy. Personally it didn’t quite sweep me up as I’d hoped, but maybe that’s because I’ve had enough of these flawless (sometimes self-righteous) men and their “wolfish grins” forever cast on the women they love.This novel reads like really, really bad fan fiction, one that impoverishes rather than enriches the originals. Todo es perfecto, la narrativa, las descripciones, los diálogos, los personajes, la trama, la acción, el arduo trabajo de documentación de la cultura nativa y costumbres de los colonos, los momentos de Elizabeth y Nathaniel que son para atesorar. Part of successful fiction is that you don't jar a reader out of their willing suspension of disbelief; and the appeal of historical fiction is the sense you're entering into another time and place, not reading about modern people in costumes. To my utter delight, Into the Wilderness proved itself a most enjoyable read, containing all of the necessary ingredients required for a good historical fiction with romantic elements.
