    Sara Donati(Author)
With a master storyteller’s skill and a historian’s precision, Sara Donati has delighted readers and critics alike with her bestselling novels of the nineteenth-century New York frontier. Now she brings us The Endless Forest, set in the remote village of Paradise, where the Bonner family that readers first met in Into the Wilderness make their home.

The spring of 1824 is a challenging one for the inhabitants of Paradise N.Y. when a flood devastates the village. But for Nathaniel and Elizabeth Bonner, it’s also a time of reunion as their children return from far-off places: Lily and her husband from Italy, and Martha Kirby, the Bonners’ ward, from Manhattan. Although Lily is nursing her own grief, it is Martha, fleeing a crushing humiliation, who brings with her trouble that will reverberate in all their lives.

In the sudden peace that follows the storm, as families struggle to rebuild, 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 mother arrives back in Paradise a decade after abandoning her daughter. 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 something else in mind? Whatever happens, Martha and Daniel and all the Bonners must stand united against the threats to both heart and home.

Painful secrets and hidden sorrows, joy, heartbreak, and passion follow the Bonners through a season of change and renewal. A rich, passionate, multilayered portrayal of family strength and endurance in a fascinating place and time, The Endless Forest will be remembered long after the last page is turned.

    good read

  • By Cookie on 26 June 2017

    Love this whole series. Full of adventure and discrete romance.

    Being an avid fan of the Jamie and Claire "Outlander" saga by Diana Gabaldon, I was thrilled to find Sara Donati's books about(The Last of the Mohicans) Hawkeye's son, Nathaniel Bonner, and his family. The historical background of the late 18th century in the United States was well researched, the characters fascinating - especially the American Indians - and the story skilfully draws the reader into every book.This last book was equally interesting, and I was sorry to come to the end, knowing that it is the last one in the saga. I must admit I did not think it was quite as good as the first four volumes, but it must have been quite difficult to wind up the story in a believable way.I shall be re-reading the whole saga very soon; this for me is high praise!

    At last! The concluding book in the Bonner family story. I was really looking forward to the next episode and this didn't let me down. A terrific read from start to finish, I didn't want to put this book down. Sara Donati also tied up all the loose ends in the epilogue and you weren't left with plots half finished or up in the air. I loved the whole series and if the author fancies writing more I for one would definitely buy them.

    Oh how lovely to be back in Paradise, I have read and re-read the other books in the series so many times and was so pleased to have a new instalment. I must admit I found the first few pages a bit confusing, although I had read the other books so many times it's been about a year since my last re-read and I got a little muddled with all the characters but that soon all fell into place. As I am writing this review I am only about half way through the book as I am pacing myself so as to not finish it too soon so I can't really comment on the storyline but as the other reviewer has said I can already see whats coming (I think!) but I don't mind that, for me the joy of this book is revisiting old friends and finding out whats happened to them since I last saw them.I love Sara Donati's writing !

    I appreciate the world and the characters created by Sara Donati, and that it was a pleasure to spend some time in their world. I came to love these fine people. Their joys were mine, and their heartbreaks inspired my tears. Technically speaking, I think the author has a great talent for pacing, for fine detail without being burdensome to the story, and for creating anticipation in her love stories. This serious was a joy to read, and it is one I'm sure that I will read again and again.
