Elizabeth of Saginaw BayElizabeth of Saginaw Bay by Donna Winters

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Elizabeth doesn't find what she expects when she steps off the boat into Michigan's wilderness.  Tricked by her husband's uncle, they've invested all they own to purchase a lot in town - only to find it's still forest and the town doesn't exist yet.  Forced to be pioneers, Elizabeth and her husband struggle to adapt and carve out a life in the wilderness. 

Tension keeps the reader turning each page.  Elizabeth is a likeable and realistic character, an intriguing mixture of spunky and loyal. The characters she meets in her new home are diverse and interesting as well, pioneers and Indians alike.  Another intriguing read from Michigan's past by Donna Winters. 

A wonderful story for adults, but also very suitable for 'tweens and teens.

Pegg, thanks so much for letting people know about this story! I recently reread it, first time since revising it in the early 1990's, and was surprised at how well I had paced it. Blessings to you in your work!
