I’m not sure why, but just recently I’ve had a big bump in email and on-line notes about the Wilderness series, some really heartfelt and very kind responses. This is a general thank you to everybody for your support. Writing is a very solitary and often lonely way to make a living. Positive feedback from readers goes a long way to balance that out.
good words from readers

You are an excellent writer, Rosina!!
Thank you, everyone.
I make a point to re-read the entire series every year and I gain as much – if not more- pleasure from every single word as I did the first time around. I’m anxiously awaiting your next book.
Needless to say, I loved the Wilderness series and although I didn’t want it to end, I do appreciate your epilogue to “wrap it up”. I found it interesting that you chose that particular period of history for a setting. It was the perfect background, but I would think that it required an enormous amount of research, since that particular period is somewhat skipped over in our educational system. Was there anything in particular that made you want to write about that time?
Thank you Carol. It’s very good to hear from readers about the historical end of things. I set the stories in the time period specifically because it isn’t very well known (mostly because of the way history is taught, or isn’t taught). It always struck me as unfortunate, given all the interesting things going on. And a lot of research was involved, but that’s my favorite part.
Your Wilderness Series was a joy to read. Thank you! Thank you!
Do you have any other historical novels that I can read.
Gail — thank you, I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed the series. I have one other historical, but it’s very different from the Wilderness series. It’s under my real name, Rosina Lippi. But really, nothing like the Wilderness series, just so you know.
The Wilderness series is one of the best out there. Truly. I wish you will write more of the same since it sets them apart from many of the books published. I’m sorry I tried to read hour other books but they have no appeal. I don’t understand why you would switch gears like that. Too bad. When it’s something that good people love more of it. Hope you get inspired to write more like Sara Donati. Love her.
