The Green Veil is an epic saga of people living and loving in the rugged forests of 18th century Wisconsin. With multiple points of view, It weaves throughout the lives of many different characters and takes place of the course of a decade or more.

The author crafted a rich setting filled it with a diverse cast of characters. The one constant in this novel is Colette. This is her story, and when we glimpse her future in the prologue, we know her life is going to be painful- we just don't know which path she travels to get there. The twist and turns her story takes before she hits rock bottom kept me guessing throughout the book.

While this book is about relationships, it is not your typical romance. The man who ultimately turns out to Colette's hero is separated from her for about 90% of the story. That was a little tough to take for a romance nut like myself.

However, if you like long, rich, historical books with a romance thread running through but not driving the story (think Gone with the Wind, only not so long), this is the perfect book for you.

Empire in Pine Book One: The Green Veil by Naomi Musch is forty chapters of a layered Christian Fiction novel published January 1, 2011, by Desert Breeze Publishing, Inc. and all I can say to begin with is--what a book! I absolutely loved it.
Colette Palmer and Manason Kade grew up together as childhood friends in Michigan, and Colette always hoped he'd be the one. He's her first true love, but when her family relocates to Wisconsin they lose track of one another. She waits years in hopes he'll became a lumber cruiser in Wisconsin, so they'll be reunited. Year after year unravels, and she has to build a new life. She meets Joseph, and he gives her a yellow dog she names Dandy, a beautiful, fancy blue shawl, and proposes, but she holds him at arm's length and says he's her best friend.

She finds herself proposed to by two different men and finally says yes to the second proposal out of compassion. When this man makes a difficult husband and tells her she can't keep her dog, she turns to Joseph for help. Her first love reappears, and she's faced with a difficult decision when he offers refuge. Will she honor her marriage vows? Her heart is torn. Problems surmount and obstacles larger than the woods of Wisconsin rear their ugly heads.

This Christian Fiction novel is layered with rich details realistic to life, and the author provides rich description of beautiful wood scenes, but in a way that enrich the story without detracting from it. I find the plot original, the theme worthy, and I didn't want to put this novel down until I found out what happened to Colette and Manason in the end. Boggs, a lumberman hired by Collette's husband, is a mean man who'll stop at nothing to get what he wants, and Collette has a face-off with him as well. I loved the part the dog played in it.

The Green Veil is one of those books where you have absolutely no idea how the book is going to end, but you MUST know. Naomi did a fantastic job of keeping things moving and twisting and keeping ME wondering. On top of that, the setting is as fresh as newly cut pine (pun intended). The author set me right down in the middle of the big, wilds woods of 1800s Wisconsin and I didn't want to read.
If you're a fan of historical romance with an emphasis on historical, you'll love The Green Veil as much as I did.
The prologue was so intriguing that if none of the other reasons had existed for me to love the book, I would have kept reading just to find out how poor Collette got herself in such a predicament--not to mention how she was going to get herself out. A good writer knows just how to hook a reader, and Naomi did it with her prologue. Well done, Naomi! I'll be buying anything else you write.
Highly recommended.

The Green Veil satisfied my Wisconsin home historical, romantic suspense and thrill-seeking reader needs all in one beautifully written novel. Her characters were so captivating right from the opening scene, which is a preview from the middle of the story, that I couldn't stop reading. Thank goodness I was reading on my computer and could turn pages faster, although I have a blister on my thumb.

Musch's historical fiction is straight from early Wisconsin settlement times, with all the grit, romance, hardship and lore of the Great North Woods. Lumber barons took land and timber by right, by force and by theft. Colette "Lettie" Palmer is a young girl when her father follows Harris Eastman from Michigan to Wisconsin Territory in 1841.

When the Palmers and the Harrises settle in Grand Rapids, Colette becomes a companion to young Mrs. Harris, helping at her home and impressing Mr. Harris with her quick grasp of business. Colette has left behind dear friends in Michigan, including her childhood love, Manason Kade. Colette makes a new friend as soon as she and her family move in. Joe Gilbert will never be more than a dear friend to Colette, not that he doesn't wish more. A few years later, Colette's father suffers a terrible accident which causes him and Colette's mother to move to Milwaukee for medical care, leaving Colette with the Eastmans. Meantime, Manason follows his dream to the lumbering trade in Wisconsin and discovers underhanded practices in the timbering industry. When Mrs. Harris eventually carries a pregnancy almost to term, it's not hard to figure out what's going to happen. Through a series of miscommunication and missed connections, Colette makes life choices out of pity and the goodness of her heart, while never forgetting her longing for Manason.
