About the Book:

Lydia Colburn is a young physician dedicated to serving her village in the Land, a landmass in the South Atlantic Ocean undetectable to the outside world. 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.

About the Author

Keely Brooke Keith, author of the Uncharted series, is a bass guitarist and frequently performs and tours with her husband, singer/songwriter John Martin Keith. When she isn’t writing stories or playing bass, Keely enjoys dancing, having coffee with friends, and sifting through vintage books at antique stores. Keely resides on a hilltop south of Nashville with her husband and their daughter, Rachel.

My Thoughts
I wasn't sure of this book initially and how to describe it. Keely describes it best (of course it is her book):
"The Land Uncharted is written with the feel of historical fiction, set like science fiction, and of course there is romance."
I generally don't read science fiction, but this definitely felt more like historical fiction, so I did, in fact, enjoy reading it.
The story ticked so many boxes - good characters and character development, a bit of mystery, romance (but not over the top), and an ending that gets you hanging out for the next book in the series.

Keep up the good work Keely!
