Wow! Thanks to Lauren Willig (The Pink Carnation series) for recommending this book! It has a mention of Claire, Jamie, and Ian from Diana G's Outlander series, which was such a treat!Picking up on some of the characters from "The Last of the Mohicans", this book furthers the tale of Dan'l Bonner and family. It centers on Dan'l's son, Nathaniel, the town of Paradise, and Judge Middleton's son, Julian, and daughter, Elizabeth.For me, this book was incredibly difficult to put down! I was captivated by the characters and the story. It reminded me of how I felt/still feel when I read/re-read the Outlander novels -- so caught up, I feel as if I've stepped through the pages and into the story as one of its characters.Can't wait to begin the next of the series!
