Lydia Colburn is a young physician dedicated to serving her village in the Land. When injured fighter pilot Connor Bradshaw’s parachute carries him from the war engulfing the 2025 world to her hidden land, his presence threatens her plans, her family, and the survival of her preindustrial society. As Connor searches for a way to return to his squadron, his fascination with life in the Land makes him protective of Lydia and her peaceful homeland, and Lydia’s attraction to Connor stirs desires she never anticipated. Written like a historical, set like a scifi, and filled with romance, The Land Uncharted weaves adventure and love in this suspenseful story of a hidden land.


Hey! Here's my review.

Wow, I never would have thought mixing science fiction and historical romance would work, but I think the author did a great job of blending them. 

The story is set about ten years in the future during what seems like World War 3. A man is ejected from an exploding aircraft and parachutes down to an inhabited island that is unknown to the modern world, hidden in a place like the Bermuda Triangle. The people have the technology of the late 1800's. The village's female doctor rescues him then romance and adventure follow. 

I really liked Lydia's innocent and trusting nature. She also had a bit of spunk and would stand up for herself. Connor was a modern gentleman, and I was glad that he wanted to protect the people of The Land. I liked how the story played out and was satisfied with the end, until I read the epilogue, now I want to read the next book!

I listened to the audiobook, which I received free in exchange for an honest review. I found the narrator unbearably slow for my taste, but once I sped it up to 1.5, it was perfect.
