Before "The Wild, Wild West," there was a "Wild, Wild East." In honor of our First President, I'm sharing a book about a love story set during America's revolutionary war as it happened in upstate New York, a place which was then full of Indians and many different settler traditions.
GENESEE by Juliet Waldron is an extraordinary book about love, hardship and prejudice. It's well written and full of wonderful characters. Even though they have many differences, Genesee and Alexander are true kindred spirits. Ms. Waldron keeps you enthralled by, a little at a time, giving tantalizing tidbits of their origins. This story isn't sugarcoated, which is really refreshing. There are some instances of violence, but they're brief and handled well. Anyone who enjoys an honest, realistic story will love this one. Renee Burnette, Amazon Reviewer

"Genesee is a fascinating look into the early life of upstate New York during the [American Revolution]. Juliet Waldron makes you feel as if you're experiencing Genesee's trials and tribulations right alongside her…elements that meld very effectively to make this outstanding story one well worth reading over and over."

`. . . The story of confidence in one's self, faith in love and the resilience of the human spirit, "Genesee" is an entertaining romantic adventure set in a young America, but its lessons are timeless.'
