In her extraordinary novels Into the Wilderness and Dawn on a Distant Shore, award-winning writer Sara Donati deftly captured the vast, untamed wilderness of late-18th-century New York and the trials and triumphs of the Bonner family. Now Donati takes on a new and often overlooked chapter in our nation's past - and in the life of the spirited Bonners - as their oldest daughter, the brave and beautiful Hannah, comes of age with a challenge that will change her forever. Masterfully told, this passionate story is a moving tribute to a resilient, adventurous family and a people poised at the brink of a new century. It is the spring of 1802, and the village of Paradise is still reeling from the typhoid epidemic of the previous summer. Elizabeth and Nathaniel Bonner have lost their two-year-old son, Hannah's half brother Robbie, but they struggle on as always: the men in the forests, the twins Lily and Daniel in Elizabeth's school, and Hannah as a doctor in training, apprenticed to Richard Todd. Hannah is descended from healers on both sides - one Scots grandmother and one Mohawk - and her reputation as a skilled healer in her own right is growing.
After a long night spent attending to a birth, Elizabeth and Hannah encounter an escaped slave hiding on the mountain. She calls herself Selah Voyager, and she is looking for Curiosity Freeman - a former slave herself, one of the village's wisest women and Elizabeth's closest friend. The Bonners take Selah, desperately ill, to Lake in the Clouds to care for her, and with that simple act they are drawn into the secret life that Curiosity and Galileo Freeman and their grown children have been leading for almost 10 years. The Bonners will do what they must to protect the Freemans, just as Hannah will protect her patient, who presents more than one kind of challenge. For a bounty hunter is afoot - Hannah's childhood friend and first love, Liam Kirby.

Unbedingt empfehlenswert!

Man sollte darauf achten, dass dies Teil 3 zu zwei fantastischen Vorgängern ist. Abenteuer, Romanze und Historisches werden gekonnt verwoben in einer fesselnden Saga der Familie Bonner aus Paradise, New York State.
Die Sprecherin schafft es, jeden einzelnen Charakter treffend durch verschiedene Tonlagen, Akzente und individuelle Sprachmelodien darzustellen. Sie liest nicht nur, sie lebt die Geschichte und verleiht ihr dadurch große Lebendigkeit. Ich habe jede Minute genossen und mich nicht ein einziges Mal während aller drei Bücher gelangweilt!
