If you’re a fan of Diane Gabaldon, and like big historical novels for the summer, here’s a great series for you. Okay it’s not as well written as the Outlander series, but it’s for the beach! The whole series is available as e-books. “Into the Wilderness" (the first of five books in this series) is the story of Elizabeth Middleton, an independent, strong-willed English woman who travels to America in 1792 to set up a school in 'Paradise', a primitive settlement in New York state. Her father has plans to marry her off to a wealthy settler and solve his financial problems. But Elizabeth is just as determined to realize her dream in the hostile new land and finds an unlikely supporter in a rugged Scottish trapper who is also an honorary member of the Mohawk Wolf clan. Interweaving the fate of the Mohawk nation with these two outsiders torn between different worlds, this is an epic love story. A strong female character, an adventurous, handsome male love interest, backwoods survival, and some American history as background are what make this a fun read while you’re waiting to get Gabaldon’s newest book. Check Our Catalog
