Sara Donati has delighted readers and critics alike with her bestselling novels of the 19th-century New York frontier. Now she brings us The Endless Forest, set in the remote village of Paradise, where the Bonner family makes their home. The spring of 1824 is a challenging one for the inhabitants of Paradise 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, Martha and her childhood friend, Daniel, Lily's twin brother, suddenly begin to see each other in a new light. But their growing bond is jeopardized when Martha's mother, Jemima, a dangerous schemer who has destroyed more than one family, arrives back in Paradise a decade after abandoning her daughter. Jemima's 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. Painful truths and hidden sorrows, joy and heartbreak 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. This 2009 Bantam Paperback is in Good condition.
