In an icy, untamed world of pristine beauty, a husband and wife are torn apart by fate but reunited forever by a love that can't be broken... An unforgettable love comes alive in this masterful epic of passion, treachery, and adventure... Award-winning author Sara Donati's debut novel, Into the Wilderness, was hailed as "one of those rare stories that let you breathe the air of another time" (Diana Gabaldon). Now, in an eloquent blend of fact and fiction, Donati re-creates her beloved characters from Into the Wilderness in an enthralling new tale of romance and adventure. Elizabeth and Nathaniel Bonner have settled into their life together at the edge of the New-York wilderness in the winter of 1794. But soon after Elizabeth gives birth to healthy twins, Nathaniel learns that his father has been arrested in British Canada. Forced to leave Hidden Wolf Mountain to help his father in Montreal, Nathaniel himself is imprisoned and in danger of being hanged as a spy. In a desperate bid to save her husband, Elizabeth bundles her infants and sets out through the snowy wilderness and across treacherous waterways on the dangerous trek to Canada. But she soon discovers that freeing her husband will take every ounce of her courage and inventiveness - and will threaten her with the loss of what she loves most: her children. Torn apart, the Bonners must embark on yet another perilous voyage, this time all the way across the ocean to the heart of Scotland, where a destiny they could never have imagined awaits them...

"Elizabeth and Nathaniel Bonner don't want to leave their home deep in the Adirondack mountains, but a distant cousin of Nathaniel's will stop at nothing to lure them to the Scottish home of their ancestors. The adventure includes interracial families, piracy on the high seas, murder and civil unrest. Kate Reading draws us into the story without our having been aware of her performance at all. Her thoughtful and consistent characterizations include dialects of Native American, British and Scottish characters, and the last of these is especially thorough and convincing. Her performance of the very elderly and cantankerous pirate Anne Bonnie brings the historical figure to vivid and colorful life. Reading maintains her involvement in the story right through the last tape, making the listener sorry to see it end. R.P.L. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
