Reviews Another Country (Emigrants Trilogy #2)
- This is excellent historical fiction. It's the sequel to Far Horizons and the conclusion to the immigrant series. The plot involves Scottish immigrants settling in Canada's Prince Edward Island and in Boston, Ma. I enjoy reading the history of PEI because of my love of Lucy Maud Montgomery's writing. It was the setting for many of her stories including the Anne of Green Gables series. I have now read 3 of Katherine Swartz books and I find her wri...

- Easy to read romance but a bit predictable.
- Though not steeped in the factual tea, as was the first in this series, this was an entertaining read and follow-up to the previous story. I felt it was a conclusion, but find there is a third installment. I'm curious to see where else this author can take us.
- Book 2 of the Emigrants Trilogy - Not quite as good as the first one but fun to pick up with the characters 10 years later and see how their lives have changed. I enjoyed it very much!
- This book is the second in a trilogy. It deals with a close knit Scottish family, who travel to Canada, and the USA in search of a better life. It needs a bit more editing. There are words left out. It told of conditions as this country was forming. There are romances between the families. The younger generations struggles to make their own ways in their new countries.
- Continuation of book 1 Far Horizon. I really liked the book,however i was dissapointed at the ending of the book, felt like it was wrapped up to quickly.Too many events happening in the last chapter .
- Review of first 2 books in trilogy: The first book tells of why they had to or wanted to leave their country. The next book,(which is better), tells what happen after they got to the new world. Hardships, love, romance & devotion. A leisurely read. Not really slow, but not a fast page-turner.
- After enjoying book 1 of the Emigrants Trilogy, Far Horizons, I found this second book, Another Country, a huge disappointment. This second books has very little historical content and the characters are flat and unrealistic. In addition, the ebook contains numerous errors.
- Good story. Looking forward to reading the next one "A Distant Shore" - can't seem to locate it!
- loved it (and not just because her name is spelt the right way :p)
- It was difficult to get into this book, too many characters to keep track of and switching back and froth to different locations. But the ending was satisfying and the good guys get the girls.
- Second Kate Hewlett historical novel that I have read. It was a good mix of historical information with the story of the intertwined families and their lives and struggles.
- I would give this 2nd book in the trilogy 3.5 stars. Enjoyed seeing the story develop and the interactions between the characters. I found it to be an easy read. Looking forward to reading 3rd book.
