Review by Eve on 8th February, 2012
5 stars "The best I read for a long time."

It's been awhile that a book has ‘grabbed’ me right from the first page. This one did just that. Looking forward to read the second and third.

The work of first-time author, Sara Donati, so impressed bestselling author Diana Gabaldon that she paid Donati the ultimate tribute in allowing her to borrow two of her most beloved characters Jamie and Claire from her bestselling 'Voyager' series. 

INTO THE WILDERNESS is the story of Elizabeth Middleton, an independent, strong-willed English woman who travels to America in 1792 to set up a school in 'Paradise', a primitive settlement on the edges of a wilderness the white settlers share grudgingly with the Mohawk Wolf clan. There she finds her father has plans to marry her off to a wealthy settler and solve his financial problems into the bargain. But Elizabeth is just as determined to realise her dream in the hostile new land and finds an unlikely supporter in Nathaniel Bonner, a rugged Scottish trapper who is also an honorary member of the Mohawk Wolf clan.


Interweaving the fate of the Mohawk nation with these two outsiders torn between different worlds, INTO THE WILDERNESS is an epic love story. "My favorite kind of book is the sort that you live in, rather than read...this is one of those rare stories that lets you breathe the air of another time and leave your footprints on the snow of a wild, strange place. " DIANA GABALDON

'A rich, involving, fully textured tale. Each time you open a book, you hope to discover a story that will make your spirit of adventure and romance sing, This book delivers on that promise.' - Amanda Quick

'The author builds a powerful adventure story animating everyone - German villagers, slaves, and Scottish trappers alike - in a gorgeous, vividly described American landscape.'
- US People magazine

'Donati, a skillful storyteller, easily weaves historical fact with romantic ambiance to create a dense, complex design. Exemplary historical fiction boasting a heroine with a real and tangible presence.' - Kirkus Reviews
