Into the Wilderness

Into the Wilderness - Sara Donati

Into the Wilderness

After Elizabeth Middleton leaves England to join her father and brother in the remote mountain village of Paradise, New York, she does so with a strong will and an unwavering purpose: to teach school.
Weaving a tapestry of fact and fiction, Sara Donati's epic novel sweeps us into another time and place . . . and into a breathtaking story of love and survival in a land of savage beauty.

It is December of 1792. Elizabeth Middleton leaves her comfortable English estate to join her family in a remote New York mountain village. It is a place unlike any she has ever experienced. And she meets a man unlike any she has ever encountered--a white man dressed like a Native American: Nathaniel Bonner, known to the Mohawk people as Between-Two-Lives. Determined to provide schooling for all the children of the village, Elizabeth soon finds herself locked in conflict with the local slave owners as well as with her own family. Interweaving the fate of the Mohawk Nation with the destiny of two lovers, Sara Donati's compelling novel creates a complex, profound, passionate portait of an emerging America.

Praise for Into the Wilderness

"My favorite kind of book is the sort you live in, rather than read. Into the Wilderness is one of those rare stories that let you breathe the air of another time, and leave your footprints on the snow of a wild, strange place. I can think of no better adventure than to explore the wilderness in the company of such engaging and independent lovers as Elizabeth and her Nathaniel."--Diana Gabaldon

"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

"A beautiful tale of both romance and survival...Here is the beauty as well as the savagery of the wilderness and, at the core of it all, the compelling story of the love of a man and a woman, both for the untamed land and for one another."--Allan W. Eckert

"Lushly written . . . Exemplary historical fiction."--Kirkus Reviews

"Epic in scope, emotionally intense."--BookPage
