    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.

    Nancy says: "GREAT READ!"
    "Fascinating: what a great narrator, too"
    Overall

    I'm about halfway through this book and can't sing its praises enough. The character and plot development pull one in, and the narrator is a delight! I agree that Ms. Reading is equally convincing as male or female with Mohawk, English, American or Scots accents.

    Story
    (239)

    With her disarming, intimate, completely accessible voice, and dry sense of humor, Nora Ephron shares with us her ups and downs in I Feel Bad About My Neck, a candid, hilarious look at women who are getting older and dealing with the tribulations of maintenance, menopause, empty nests, and life itself.

    Kestrel says: "Don't make me get out of the car..."
    "I wrote this book.....Or I could have written it"
    Overall

    If I had the wit and gift with words of Nora Ephron! I hesitated to buy it after many of the reviews below but I'M SO GLAD I DID! Ms. Ephron's voice, both written and narrative, is perfect. Of course, I'm 54. She's about 10 years older than I. I think women under 45 should put this on the shelf to be re-addressed in a decade or so. I've recommended it to all my dear women friends. Now I'm going to start it over from the beginning and enjoy it again.
