Publisher Description

A rich, passionate, multilayered portrayal of family strength and endurance from bestselling author Sara Donati
 
In the spring of 1824, in the remote village of Paradise on the New York frontier, Nathaniel and Elizabeth Bonner celebrate a glorious reunion as their children return from far-off places: Lily and her husband from Italy, and Martha Kirby, the Bonners’ ward, from Manhattan. In the peace that follows a devastating flood, childhood friends Martha and Daniel, Lily’s twin brother, suddenly begin to see each other in a new light. But their growing bond is threatened when Martha’s estranged mother arrives back in Paradise. Jemima Southern is a dangerous schemer who has destroyed more than one family, and her anger touches everyone, as do her secrets. Has Jemima come to claim her daughter—or does she have other, darker motives? Whatever transpires, Martha, Daniel, and all the Bonners must stand united against the threats to both heart and home.

Addictive!

I fell in love with this series. Didn't think I could find anything that compared to Dianna Gabaldon's historical fiction. "Sara" had perfect description of Louisiana during the war of 1812 and I can't wait to find more authors like her.
Enjoy,

Endless

This last book in the series made me cry. I love series that let me get close to the characters and keep letting me in. This last book brought everyone home in some way. There was closure but also the thread of a family continuing on. I will miss them

Into the wilderness series

Must read. They become family and friends. Time well spent. Will miss spending time in Paradise.
