Rosina (Sara Donati), Thank You

I have three packages I need to get sent out in the mail sometime this week, if I can find the time to get away from work and get to the post office. That last part may be the most difficult part, as classes for all of my online students started today, and there are many issues, details, and problems which need to be addressed.

One of the packages I need to get sent out is a care package to my dad. We send each other care packages every now and then, and stuff them full of things that we know will mean something to the other. Well, knowing that I had a care package to get ready for Dad meant that it wouldn't make much sense to send the package without THE book.

You see, my dad and I both love a series called The Wilderness Series by Sara Donati. Yes, I know I've mentioned this series here before, but it's worth mentioning again, because it's THAT good! Yesterday, after finishing my own online college homework, I decided to spend the rest of the day reading the book so I could send it to Dad. He tries to nonchalantly ask me about the book, but I can see right through it, and I know that he's as eager to read it as I was.

I have now finished the book, and I cried at the end. I cried because this is the last book of the series, and I felt like I was losing part of my family. Sara Donati writes about her characters so well that you feel you know them. You come to love them, hate them, worry about them, and cheer for them.

This series is my favorite series of all time, and I'm truly going to miss it. I guess that now this series has ended, I will start the second book of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander Series, but I'm sure going to miss reading about the Bonner family.

Rosina (that's the author's real name), THANK YOU! Thank you for creating characters so real that I actually feel genuine emotions for them. Thank you for creating a forum which brought me together with so many wonderful people, who quickly became wonderful friends at a time I truly needed the support. Thank you for sharing your talent so that we could all benefit from the pleasure, excitement, and joy of truly wonderful stories which take us to another place. I hope you realize how wonderful what you created and shared with us is. Your talent is truly beyond words.

Wow...Sara herself commented 8v) I know what you mean about missing the books. I've read many books which I wished continued, but didn't.

That was so sweet of you Misty. I know what you mean by the way, whenever you've been used to read a book especially if its a series, it would be very hard when the book already end its story.
