INTO THE WILDERNESS (The Wilderness Series Book 1)
About this deal
Then once in a while she’d show me something she was working on and I’d show her something I was working on. The idea was simply a bit of an inside joke — characters wandering from one novel to another — and was never meant to be anything else. Comencé el libro sin saber ese dato, pero era inevitable que la ambientación y la caracterización de los personajes no me recordaran a esa maravillosa película, hasta que Elsa me abrió los ojos (gracias! Nathaniel wants Judge Middleton's land, too, for his adoptive people--but, unlike Todd, he also wants Lizzie for herself.
Well, to be precise, she asked me about the two-paragraph bit in which she refers to Jamie, Claire, and Young Ian as though they were real historical characters (she doesn't "use" them _as_ characters in her book), and I said sure, I thought that would be funny; let's see if anybody notices. Into the Wilderness follows the adventures of Elizabeth Middleton as she makes the shift from a spinster’s life in England to life on the American frontier, circa 1792. In the spring she had given birth to Luke’s son, and in the summer Jennet had found herself compelled to surrender the infant to a stranger in the hope of keeping him safe.Of course, meeting Nathaniel means she has to forsake any oaths of eternal spinsterhood, for she falls in love with the widowed backwoodsman after encountering him in the most unfortunate of circumstances: an accidental shooting. As autumn approaches, news of the latest conflict with Britain finds the young men of Paradise—including eighteen-year-old Daniel Bonner—eager to take up arms.
Elizabeth is a 29 year old spinster who wants nothing more than her independence and to teach young children. Now, I can see why it'd have been marketed as such, but out there are many people who'll also be pushed away by this, as I was. It was a case of people talking too directly and succinctly, getting their complicated messages across with little misunderstanding.I wish there had been an epilogue, I fee like there is so much more to see and read and I'm struggling with how long I have to wait until I find out what Nathaniel and Elizabeth get up to next. So similar to the post “Finding My Next Shura” where Beth enlisted several friends to find a new book boyfriend, I needed to replace Jamie and Claire’s place at our holiday dinner table conversations (I said don’t judge! We’ve compiled a list of listens for fans of the Outlander series bringing you time travel romance, Scottish historical fiction and more.
after another adventure, and I found some of the storylines not exactly plausible (but apparently time travel is? One day the subject of the Battle of Saratoga came up and Diana mentioned that she had used the battle as a setting for a scene, and this happened just as I was writing a similar scene. I enjoyed the story overall, but I didn't have intense feelings about any of the characters, as I have for the people in Diana's books. Then there is the fact that I know any slow scenes of domesticated bliss will be short-lived for Jamie and Claire, and when they are idle at Lallybroch I am constantly on-edge for the next disaster. 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.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. By book two we are off and seeing the world, traveling fascinating locales such as Scotland, New Orleans and Boston. I went ahead and read all the plot summaries of the other books so now I know, but I just don’t feel I have it in me to make that sort of investment, at least not right now (they are all 600-plus pages). Yet as Hannah resumes her duties as a gifted healer among the sick and needy, she finds that she is also slowly healing herself.
We are an independent publisher and home of the Malcolm Down Publishing, Sarah Grace Publishing, and Grace and Down publishing imprints. I'm perplexed as to why this series, and this book in particular, are compared to Diana Gabaldon's Outlander. She joins her father at his holdings in Paradise and quickly discovers that plans have already been made for her.With Ben Savard’s guidance, allies are drawn from every segment of New Orleans’s population and from Andrew Jackson’s army, now pouring into the city in preparation for what will be the last major battle of the War of 1812.
