    Outlander [2008 film] af Howard McCain (fueledbycoffee)
    fueledbycoffee: While Donati's stories do not have the paranormal/time travel elements, these two both have historical ties, a strong female lead, romance, and sweeping family saga. Jamie and Claire do make cameos in this first book (with D.G.'s blessing)

If you are a friend of saga"s then you will enjoy this well written adventure of the Bonner family and their friends and enemies. Much like the Outlander series, which I never thought I would enjoy, but did, and this is why I looked for another writer with the same genre. Sara Donti has not disappointed me, i am starting the third book in there series, and happy that are more after this one. ( )

This book has my favorite first line of all time and fulfills that promise with a beautifully told story filled with finely detailed characters and a rich sense of place and history.

The central character, Elizabeth Middleton, is an engaging heroine whose mixture of strengths and weaknesses is entirely believable. Her relationship with Nathaniel Bonner is also believable as a blossoming romance between grown-ups.

Donati has written four or five volumes in this series, but in my opinion none of them live up to the power of this first story. ( )

An epic of post-revolutionary upstate New York, I found this book absolutely delectable and immediately moved on to its sequel. I'll admit to a bit of initial disbelief at the modern sentiments of the main character -- though these become increasingly believable with time, and it's clear the author put substantial effort into avoiding anachronisms -- and final disbelief at the subtle implication that fraternal twins run on the male line.

Overall, Into the Wilderness is perfect historical fiction, laying out the flavor of the place, human characters, and believable and pressing plot arcs rooted in the small tragedies and triumphs of the era. The narrator Kate Reading is phenomenal at making it all breathe. ( )

This epic tale tells the story of a twenty-nine-year-old Englishwoman, Elizabeth Middleton, who travels to a remote area of New York State in 1792 to live with her father and brother. Elizabeth was raised by her aunt in England and is very serious about her independence. She wants to set up a school in New York for children of all races and has no intention of ever marrying. She soon meets and falls in love with Nathaniel Bonner, a white man who was raised among Native Americans. He and his family act as protectors for the last of the Mohawk tribes still living in the area. The novel follows the adventures of Elizabeth and Nathaniel, who are forced to flee into the Mohawk lands, and try to stay one step ahead of Richard Todd, a man determined to marry Elizabeth for the land she owns.

The book I read had 898 pages so the plot is too long and interwoven to describe. Additionally, there are five other volumes in the continuing series. Several characters narrate the story but Elizabeth and Nathaniel are the primary storytellers. The book includes a list of characters and a map at the beginning which might prove helpful. I never felt the need to refer to it because I felt like the individual characters were written so well I could always remember who they were. There were several times when I was rapidly turning the pages to see what would happen next.

I thought the details of early American culture along with the details about the Mohawk way of life were fascinating. This is also a love story and the combination of history and romance was just right. I don't know when I'll get to them, but I'm definitely planning to continue the series. I recommend it and hope the others are just as compelling.
