"If May is a brave, stubborn fighter, the short, free-verse lines are one-two punches in this Laura Ingalls Wilder-inspired ode to the human spirit." — Kirkus Reviews, Starred I've known it since last night: It's been too long to expect them to return. Something's happened. May is helping out on a neighbor's Kansas prairie homestead—just until Christmas, says Pa. She wants to contribute, but it's hard to be separated from her family by 15 long, unfamiliar miles. Then the unthinkable happens: May is abandoned. Trapped in a tiny snow-covered sod house, isolated from family and neighbors, May must prepare for the oncoming winter. While fighting to survive, May's memories of her struggles with reading at school come back to haunt her. But she's determined to find her way home again. Caroline Starr Rose's fast-paced novel, written in beautiful and riveting verse, gives readers a strong new heroine to love. From the Hardcover edition.

Before my husband died, everybody called me Kate. Kate was who I was. Kate was who I had been for a long time. I had an identity with Kate. The name Kate always made me feel strong, resilient, able to overcome anything. When he died, I started introducing myself as Katie. Katie... because he broke me. Katie because I was no longer that woman that he married. There was an innocence about Katie. My family called me Katie when I was a child. Katie was sweet. Katie was loved. I wanted to be Katie. So I became Katie. If people ask me my last name, I make up something. Katie May. Katie Beth. Katie Kat. I can't say my married name. It doesn't exist anymore. It was burned with him. If you ask about Kate prior to my husband's death, I will refer to her in a third person, because she is not me and I am not her. Kate died with him. I'm jealous of Kate. I wish I could be her. This is a book of short stories about Kate and Katie and their trauma.

Found in the Wilderness (sequel to Lost in the Wilderness of The Forest of Evergreen Series) follows the adventures of the lonely teenager Sophia and her beautiful journey from embittered child to a person reunited with an unexpected beloved and kin. Along the way, she had to learn in the most painful manner that deep love is not always shown upfront and it does not always come in an obvious, glittering, and handsomely-wrapped up package. Sometimes, it comes in the form of a tucked-away, long-lost song, a forlorn poem, and a little-known, self-sacrificing effort... Has she come full circle? Check out the story as Sophia continues to learn and relearn what love, life, and HOPE are truly all about. ***** Praise for THE FOREST OF EVERGREEN: Found in the Wilderness Bandiola returns with a sequel guaranteed to wrench reader's emotional heartstrings. Sophia's story continues to steer readers' minds and hearts as the second book reveals the answers to the mysteries surrounding the first book. Secrets after shocking secrets came haunting the already chaotic lives of the characters. As the book progresses, each character reveals far more layers, questioning everything you thought you knew about them. As lies and secrets began to be uncovered, more questions and more speculations are being raised. Emotional and intense! The Forest of Evergreen: Found in the Wilderness is an emotionally-charged novel filled with shocking revelations, appealing multi-dimensional characters, and suspenseful plot. Bandiola's exploration of family relationships, forbidden love, and self-introspection is compelling and complex, leaving readers craving for more of Bandiola's touch. If you loved the first book, you will surely be captivated by Bandiola's evocative and highly-engaging sequel. Prepare to be swept off your feet and get lost once again to the magic of the Forest of Evergreen. -Jeslen Tesoro, author and winner of AsianFanfics 2014 ***** Praise for THE FOREST OF EVERGREEN: Found in the Wilderness Book 2 is as surprising as Book 1. Love for the story creeps up on you, until you feel you can not let go. At first, it seems like just another fantasy story between a man and a woman, but when the reader comes to the main theme of the book, which is "Love does not demand its own way," the reader realizes she/he is not just holding another self-centered, selfish little piece about juvenile love and all the modern millennial trappings of so-called bratty, and twisted romance. I urge the readers to find out a little about themselves in this new book, and to know, like Sophia, what it feels like to be 'Found' and to truly belong. The fulfilling way. -Renee Grace Amour V.
