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.

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.

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.

I just finished all three books in this series. This is remarkable to me because I had never read a fiction book in my entire adult life! It has to be true or I simply won't read it. However, I gave these books a shot and was very pleasantly surprised! There are so many accurate details and true historical accounts and customs wound into the storyline to create a realistic, authentic, and truly enjoyable reading experience. This author is truly gifted.

This book had me pondering and thinking about it long after I read the last page and put it down. It's the kind of book that makes you want to go back and reread parts. Now that is a great book in my estimation, and The Green Veil by Naomi Musch, is just that. It is the first in a series of historical romances set in mid-nineteenth century Wisconsin. I don't claim to be a history buff, but I am definitely going to seek out the other two books in the `Empire in Pine' Series.
The book follows the life of a young lumberman's daughter named Colette Palmer as her family move into the Wisconsin territory. She must leave her best friends behind, among them a special boy she calls Nase. We watch Colette grow and mature, finding new friends and purpose in her new home and even contemplating courtship and marriage. All the while, though, she still secretly clings to her first love. Then disaster strikes and she must make a choice.
The book takes place over the span of at least eleven or twelve years; the story line is complex and involves many intriguing characters. I can't go into much more detail without spoiling it, but let me assure you it is well worth each and every page. It also seemed very well researched, but was never dry. I highly recommend this book to all readers who like historical romance - and even to those that aren't sure they like it. They just might become fans.
