Grace asked Sara Donati:

Sara, Into the Wilderness is my favorite series of all time. I'm so excited for your newest book! Can you summarize some of the similarities and differences between The Gilded Hour and the Wilderness series?

Sara Donati Grace -- thank you so much for your kind words about the series. The differences between TGH and the Wilderness series are many. The novel takes place in Manhattan in 1883, about as far as you can get from upstate NY in 1800. The themes are different, too. But you should recognize the connection between Anna and Sophie and their mothers, grandmothers and great grandmothers -- Birdie, Elizabeth, Curiosity, Hannah (to name a few). And one of the early Wilderness characters plays a central role, though she is almost 90 in this novel.
