    Kate Svenson is attractive, successful, a brilliant businesswoman - and miserable. After three failed engagements, she realizes it's time for a PLAN...an organized, detailed agenda with a clear goal: finding Mr. Right.

    I love all of Jennifer Crusie's books, but this one has to be my favorite. The way the characters interact with one another is so cute. I have listened to the book several times now. I thought the narrator was perfect. I cannot imagine reading the book and enjoying it as much as the audio version because of the narrator. A MUST BUY !!!

    I have been standing on the side of life, watching it float by. I want to swim in the river. I want to feel the current. So writes Mamah Borthwick Cheney in her diary as she struggles to justify her clandestine love affair with Frank Lloyd Wright. Four years earlier, in 1903, Mamah and her husband, Edwin, had commissioned the renowned architect to design a new home for them.

    Overall

    Having many relatives in the Richland Center area, I have spent much time there in my lifetime. I drive thru Spring Green to get there and have visited Taliesin (The House on The Rock). I wish I had read this book before ever going there the first time. The history of the house is amazing. The fact "why" it was built is a great story. This book shocks a person in so many ways. FLW does not come across as a very nice fellow, but if he had not been such an eccentric and a free-thinking man, he would not have become the great architect he was. Mamah was a feminist of her time, but how she "handled" Frank boggles the mind. She truly must have loved him deeply to tolerate his eccentricities. I intend to go back to Taliesin this summer, just to experience what Mamah and Frank felt while in that house. It has an all new meaning to me now. I LOVED this book! What a life they both had!

    Weaving a vibrant tapestry of fact and fiction, Into the Wilderness sweeps us into another time and place...and into the heart of a forbidden, incandescent affair between a spinster Englishwoman and an American frontiersman. Here is an epic of romance and history that will captivate readers from the very first page.

    I LOVED THIS BOOK ! As one review stated, it reminds me of the Outlander series. I wonder how many noticed that Claire and James Fraser (from the Outlander series) were mentioned in "Into the Wilderness" story. I loved that little sneaky item. The story drags you into the story and you feel like you know each person personally. I vowed never to spend 2 credits on a book, but I am so glad that I did for this one......it was well worth it. I can't wait to continue on with the series. Thank you Sara Donati.........keep 'em coming !
