"The Land Uncharted" by Keely Brooke Keith

**Not for teens!

About this book:

  “Lydia Colburn is a young physician dedicated to serving her village in the Land. Day and night, she rushes by horseback to treat the ill and injured, establishing a heroic reputation as the village’s new doctor.
  Naval Aviator Connor Bradshaw is flying over the South Atlantic Ocean on a mission to secure any remaining sources of fresh water in a 2025 world torn apart by war. A malfunction activates his aircraft’s ejection system, parachuting his unconscious body to the shore of a hidden land.
  Lydia risks her safety to help the injured outsider despite the shock of his mysterious arrival and the disastrous implications his presence could have for her peaceful society, which has gone undetected for seven generations.
  Connor searches for a way to return to his squadron, but his fascination with life in the Land makes him protective of Lydia and her peaceful homeland. And while Lydia’s attraction to Connor stirs desires she never anticipated, it also pushes an unwanted admirer to stage a dangerous attempt to win her affection.
  As Connor tries to keep the Land off the radar, he learns the biggest threat to Lydia lurks in her village. But when Lydia’s greatest passion and darkest fear collide, will she look to the past or the future to find the strength to survive?

My personal Rating-

This was a unique plot that I could have enjoyed. But I didn’t. I can’t over look the fact the main character has a pervert stalking her and that we see inside his head. No teen girl needs to read that! No one! Only because he died did my rating go to Two Stars. Also, I was disappointed that there wasn’t really much Spiritual Content since Lydia’s father is a preacher.

See y’all on Monday with a new review! :)
