An enjoyable and absorbing historical fiction series. If you're a fan of Diana Gabaldon's work, you'll probably enjoy Donati's characters and settings, too. Nice overlap with the later books in Gabaldon's series, in fact.

A beautiful tale of both romance and survival set in the 1700's in the Adirondack region of NYS. Here is the beauty as well as the savagery of the wildnerness and, at the core of it all, the compelling story of the love of a man and woman, both for the utamed land and for one another.

This is a great book for those who appreciate Diana Gabaldon's "Outlander" series; in fact Claire Fraser and Ian Murray are actually mentioned in passing. Set in the wilds of western NY after the Revolutionary War, Donati is a capable heir to Gabaldon's fans. Her style is different, but her historical sense, even extending to seemingly trivial things, is not. And her books are THICK, too!

EXCELLENT read. The author makes you feel as if you are "in the wilderness" with the characters. Emotionally intense but very satisfying.

This is a wonderful novel. Sara Donati really picks up where James F. Cooper left off. I give this book five stars because you can really relate to the characters in this book and see who they are and what they are like.

I read this based on a recommendation from Outlander Series fans. I've finished that series and needed something to help me wait for the next book. I had trouble getting into the story in the beginning but along the way I got swept up by the many interesting characters and their interwoven story lines. It was a very enjoyable read. I too would recommend this series to any Outlander fans or fans of historical fiction. I'll be reading the rest of the Wilderness Series as soon as I can.
