    The Carolinas, 1699: The citizens of Fount Royal believe a witch has cursed their town with inexplicable tragedies -- and they demand that beautiful widow Rachel Howarth be tried and executed for witchcraft. Presiding over the trial is traveling magistrate Issac Woodward, aided by his astute young clerk, Matthew Corbett. Believing in Rachel's innocence, Matthew will soon confront the true evil at work in Fount Royal....

    I haven't finished listening to the whole book, but so far both the performance and the story are quite entertaining. HOWEVER, it seems there's a piece missing about 4 hours 20 minutes into Part 3. Just after Matthew leaves Bidwell at Pain's house, it seems he has a conversation with Winston that's been almost completely cut out. The narrator is saying"...[Bidwell] stood with the handkerchief pressed against his mouth..." and then abruptly Matthew is outside and Winston is saying "that's when I went to see Danforth..". I don't feel that I've wasted a credit because it seems a minor omission at this point in the story, but I am pretty disappointed with Audible's quality control. Hopefully, the rest of the story is intact.

    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.

    A bit better than the average romance novel, mostly because of the more involved plot. Still, it's not half as clever nor as entertaining as Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series.
