This is an excellant series; second only to Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. This is book two of four in the series; #5 comes out "mid 2006 - tentatively titled Queen of Swords" - that is from her web site. Elizabeth and Nathaniel will remain in your hearts.

In the winter of 1794, on the edge of the New York wilderness, Elizabeth and Nathaniel Bonner have settled into the comforts of domestic bliss. Typically, however, adventure seeks these two out. Alone but for her stepdaughter Hannah, Elizabeth gives birth to twins, while Nathaniel and his father Hawkeye are imprisoned in Montreal. Determined to help her men, Elizabeth packs up the children and sets off to free them. Liberty does not bring relief to the Bonner clan, however, as sinister forces conspire to pirate them to Scotland and embroil them in a complex family feud.

This is the second novel of Donati's series about colonial Paradise/Lake in the Clouds, NY. Nathaniel, Elizabeth, Hannah (Squirrel), Curiosity and Robbie find themselves on an adventure that takes them far from home at considerable peril. The story is original, engrossing and rich in gritty historical detail, even as the characters Donati introduced develop depth. A fine sequel that surprises and leaves you ready for more.

Second book in the Wilderness Series Saga. Make sure to read "Into the Wilderness" (book 1) first. Sara Donati is a very talented author who is able to spin a tale with well developed characters and details. You will feel like you are there, on a wonderful journey with Elizabeth Middleton Bonner and her family. Love this series!
