The Wilderness Novels

 

wilderness series covers
When Elizabeth Middleton, twenty-nine years old and unmarried, leaves her Aunt Merriweather’s comfortable English estate to join her father and brother in the remote mountain village of Paradise on the edge of the New York wilderness, she does so with a strong will and an unwavering purpose: to teach school. It is December of 1792 when she arrives in a cold climate unlike any she has ever experienced. And she meets a man different from any she has ever encountered — a white man dressed like a Native American, tall and lean and unsettling in his blunt honesty. He is Nathaniel Bonner, also know to the Mohawk people as Between-Two-Lives.

 Queen of Swords

Queen of Swords] is both a smoothly written, engrossing adventure about an early American family and a vivid depiction of the little-explored War of 1812, […] delves into much deeper realities, such as race and prejudice in one of America’s famously multicultural cities, the complex patterns of revenge, the price of loyalty during wartime, and the transformative power of love.

 The Endless Forest

Say good-bye to Elizabeth Bonner and her brood with this graceful, sweeping conclusion to Donati’s frontier-era Wilderness series …Donati will satisfy and, in some cases, delight her longtime readers by wrapping up nearly every story line, confidently tracking a huge cast and their individual conflicts. Those new to Donati’s work would be better served starting at the beginning of the series with Into theWilderness…—but any reader will be won over, sooner or later, by Donati’s affection for her tough, complex characters.
