Teaser Tuesday: Into the Wilderness by Sara Donati

Last week I posted a teaser from The Endless Forest, which is the sixth and final book in the Into the Wilderness series by Sara Donati. It was the perfect ending to the series, and all the way through the book I found myself thinking that I need to go back and reread the whole series, and so over the weekend I did start the first book in the series, Into the Wilderness. I don't tend to reread books often, but I am thoroughly enjoying my reread of this book.

I  have a couple of teasers from the book, both featuring (and about) the main female character Elizabeth Middleton. The first is from page 49:

"You will not sell your property, but you will sell your daughter, have I understood you correctly?"

"You are impertinent!" he sputtered. " I would have expected that my sister might have done a better job with you - "

And from page 123 where she is speaking to Nathaniel Bonner:

Flustered, Elizabeth tried to draw her thoughts together. "I don't know what you want of me."

"You do know," he said calmly. "You know very well what I want of you. What you don't know if what you want of me."

Teaser Tuesday is host by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Head on over to find out all about it, and how to join in!

  3. Great teaser! My TBR is huge, and I'm not certain I can add a series to my pile. But, you did pique my curiosity.

  4. Very interesting teasers. They sound a bit ominous, if I do say so myself. Hope they're good reading!

    Thanks for coming by my blog, by the way!

  6. Hmmm, I think it must be a third world meeting. Then I see the house on the cover and think, can it be America?

    Yes, my teaser is a formal meeting.
    Thanks for stopping by.

    Miel, I know how you feel about an overwhelming TBR pile.

  9. I finished Dawn on a Distant Shore (if that title is right) last year. Now I need to get going on the next one. I like the series -- not quite as much as Outlander, but I do like them.

  10. Beth, Dawn on a Distant Shore was my least favourite book in the series first time around. After that they keep on getting better and better, particularly Queen of Swords and the last book The Endless Forest.

    Amy, I hope you do add them to the list. They are big, but very enjoyable reads.

  14. I hardly ever reread. These must be pretty good if you're starting the whole series all over.

  18. There are some books that I read and reread--that's a good thing. And how lucky you are to have found a series where you enjoy the characters enough to re-visit them. BTW, thanks for checking out my TT in the weeks I've been participating. What a good way to meet new bloggers.
