Praise for Beyond the Wild River - :'Maine writes beautifully about the wilderness' - The TimesMaine's beautifully detailed descriptions of the American hinterlands provide a stunning setting for this historical tale of intrigue and suspense - BooklistDescriptive passages of lush, beautiful landscapes frame Maine's riveting portrait of a thoughtful young woman who yearns for more than is offered by her station and her gender, and the rough-and-tumble young man who is inexorably drawn to her. - Publishers Weekly'Maine's gift of setting the mood shines in her latest novel... Fans of Kate Morton's rich-with-atmosphere novels will feel right at home.' - RT ReviewsPraise for The House Between TidesThere is an echo of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca in Sarah Maine's appealing debut novel - IndependentA tremendous accomplishment. So assured, so well-judged, and with such an involving story to tell, this might be the author's fifth or sixth novel, not her first. A literary star is born! - Ronald Frame
