Into the Wilderness by Sara Donati

Favourite Quote: 'And Nathaniel saw something he had forgotten about women: that words can do the same work as hands and mouths and a man’s body, that she was as undone by his admission of desire as she had been by his kiss.'

You will fall in love with Nathaniel, who is living as an Indian Mohawk in America’s “Brave New World. Elizabeth Middleton arrives in the small town of Paradise, her father has induced her to come with a promise of her fulfilling her life-long dream of being a teacher. However her father has other plans for her, a plan to marry her off in order to pay off some debts. Dr Todd is willing to do anything to get this land. But she isn't attracted to Dr Todd, she's attracted to Nathaniel.

Don't be fooled into thinking this is just a love story, it is so much more and Lake in the Clouds became as real to me as any place I've ever visited IRL. This is a wonderful story of American history, that is told in the most sensual way.

This is a long book being 876 pages, I started reading it in August just before my Dad passed away and I was unable to read on. I finally picked it up again today and finished it, I was about 2/3 of the way through it. I had forgotten some little details but had no problem following the story. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
