The 'Into The Wilderness' series is an exciting, romantic, and heartfelt story of the Bonner family whose adventures keep you reading book after book. The last of the series 'The Endless Forest' brings the story full circle. It is wonderfully written and narrated.
reviews for fun
I loved this book by Sara Donati. The entire series is excellent. A well done historical novel series. Early America, is trials, it's tribulations, it's successes, it's people. A heart warming story of one extended family.
This was a brilliant series. well written and magnificently read. The ending especially moved me as I got very melancholy and teary eyed. I definitely recommend this entire series.
I have been a fan of this series for years, it is one of my favorite of all time. I think Sara Donati did a wonderful job ending this series, it was perfect. Ms. Donati is so talented, I hope she will do an new series sometime. Kate Reading is by far my favorite narrator, so the combination is the best. If you have never read this series I highly recommend it, you will not be dissappointed.
I must say I am a huge fan of Sara Donati's Into the Wilderness series and this final book did not disappoint. She has an amazing way of incorporating multiple charachters with their varying stories, and not losing the close weave of the story. I feel a little hearbroken that the story has come to an end. I appreciate the epilogue as I was not left hungering for information about these characters that I feel close to, although it brought tears to my eyes. Kate Reading is a master. You don't feel as though someone is reading a story. A different, disctinct and realistic voice for each charachter whether male, female, young or old. A true delight. I will gladly listen to the entire series again and know I will not grow tired of it.
I LOVED THIS SERIES! However, this last book seemed like a desperate attempt to finish all the stories began and left me feeling disappointed in the story telling. I probably still wouldn't pass up the chance to listen, as I was so in love with the characters from previous books and I enjoy the narrator. To be honest though, it was a let down.
Thank you for bringing the Saga of the Bonner family to this point. Living in Central NY, The Rich history of this area has always fascinated me. I appreciate the way Ms.Donati weaves History and Fiction into such a beautiful story of Life and Struggles and Triumphs. I'm Sure James Fenimore Cooper would approve.
This Book, as the whole series, left me wanting more. I look forward to more books by Ms. Donati.
You get lost in the characters' lives and each character's reactions and complexities are believable. You become part of their lives seamlessly.
She is spot on with the voices. She moves from one character to the next making them distinct voices without distracting the reader.
Listen to it. Then listen to the rest of the series. You will cry at the end.
I love to listen to books while I live my life. It makes mundane things interesting. I love a great series. I welcome recommendations!
A wonderful conclusion to a series of books I really enjoyed. I re-read the entire series before reading the last book. I am sorry to see it end.
This sixth novel of Sara Donati comes as something of a reward to those who have enjoyed the first five novels in the "wilderness" series. This doesn't mean that it isn't a stand alone novel, because it is. But readers of the first five will be rewarded by this story that ties up so many loose ends. It doesn't have the high drama of the earlier novels. That has no place in this novel which contains the expectations and hopes and fears of those who have come to like the series. Highly recommended, although I would recommend the other five be read in order first. And make no mistake. This is the last novel in the series.
