Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

A Land Apart by Ian Roberts #Review #HistoricalFiction #Canada

Title:  A Land Apart
Author: Ian Roberts
Publisher: Atelier Saint-Luc Press
Published: January 1st, 2019
Pages: 224
Rating: 4/5
This is very different to novels that I normally choose to read but it proved both entertaining and educational, based on historical events and characters crafted into an intriguing adventure story. The author has also included lovely images illustrating events from the story which has Etienne Brulé as the central character, someone who really existed and involved in the battles involving the French, English, Wendat and Iroquois which occurred in what is now known as Canada and the US during the 17th Century.
The time is brought vividly to life, portraying just what it may have been like to live there during that time. There are also historical notes, discussion stimuli and more in this book. This is a great way to learn more about what happened then and some of the people involved – it certainly had me enthralled. It is definitely a book for adults and I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who enjoys history presented in novel form.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley. This is my honest opinion of it after choosing to read it.

    This sounds intriguing. Over the past few years, I’ve grown increasingly interested in history, but especially so in Native American history. I’m adding this to my TBR now! Wonderful review!!

    I love when I find a book totally outside my normal interests that I like. I do enjoy history, so this is one that might be right up my alley. Bravo Elaine.
