author weblog: notes on writing, process, research & craft.
My name is Rosina Lippi. I'm a former academic and tenured university professor, writing full time since 2000. Under the pen name Sara Donati I am the author of the Wilderness series, six historical novels that follow the fortunes of a group of families living in upstate New York from about 1792-1825. A new series based on later generations of the same families was launched September 1, 2015 with The Gilded Hour. The next volume in the new series, Where the Light Enters, was released in 2019.

If you are in difficulties with a book, try the element of surprise: attack it at an hour when it isn’t expecting it.
I thought The Gilded Hour was great and I realized halfway through it that it was book one with at least one more book to follow. And I am so looking forward to the next book!!
The only thing that confused me for a little while was the relationship of the two main characters. I had to keep going back to the genealogy until it straightened itself out in my head……..and it finally did!!
I’ve read your Into The Wilderness series twice so far and loved it both times. I’m sure I’ll be doing the same thing with your new series.
The hec with what the nay sayers write in their reviews. I think you and your writing are both fabulous!! Keep those books coming!
Thank you so much for your support. I hope you’ll find the sequel worth the wait.
