This is the second book in the Uncharted series - an amazing blend of historical romance and science fiction. The story is set about ten years in the future during what seems like World War 3. It is set on 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 1700's.
This book focuses on Levi and Mandy's story. Levi is busy building himself a house on the hill across from Mandy's family home. Mandy spend her time handcrafting violins. Levi has cared for Mandy for years, but she rejected him and now sees herself as unworthy.
When Mandy is abducted by the same rebel family who killed Levi's mother, Levi comes to her rescue. Though Levi and Mandy both care for each other, fear of rejection keep them both from telling the other how they feel.
I loved the concept of the grey leaf tree, whose leaves had amazing healing properties and wood far superior to other timber. This story ended with a similar teaser to book 1, and now I can't wait to read book 3!
I listened to the audiobook edition, which I received free in exchange for an honest review. The narrator of book 2 spoke clearly and at a good pace.

Would you listen to Uncharted Redemption again? Why?
I definitely would. The story is captivating and the characters have now become part of my village.
What other book might you compare Uncharted Redemption to and why?
I'm not sure I can compare this to any specific book. The concept of a forgotten land is not new, but this story is taking on an epic quality with ties to Suspense, Romance, and SciFi.
What about Misty of Echoing Praise’s performance did you like?
She has done an excellent job of distinguishing the various characters through voice. Her gentle demeanor with the torment Mandy is forced to endure and the delightful countenance of the elderly Colburn aunt have endeared those characters to me.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The simple and caring culture of a land yet undiscovered is brutally torn apart by a new evil that threatens to destroy the idyllic lifestyle of the gentle and caring inhabitants.
Any additional comments?
This is the second book in the Uncharted series. I was provided with a Review copy of the audio adaptation by the author in exchange for an honest review.I had also listened to the audio of the first book in the series which centered on the outsider Connor who parachutes out of his disabled plane and is blown onto this uncharted island in the very near future. The lifestyle of the inhabitants is minimalist and Connor fell in love with Lydia, the healer of the Village of Good Spring in "The Land."Book two is filled with suspense, danger and romance as we begin to learn more about the Colburn family's eldest son Levi and his torn past with his father. Levi Colburn is a carpenter, building the house every man dreams of giving his new bride. Levi's problems include his father's apparent cowardice which resulted in his mother's death and his inability to secure the affections of Mandy Foster, the only girl on the island he has ever had any interest in.When author Keely Brooke Keith threw in the new elements of missing sheep and the evil Felix and his son Harvey, the action begins to heat up with an evil this culture has only encountered once before. Like book 1, objects from the outside world and reminders of The War again appear on the beach, threatening the very foundation of the idyllic lives of this minimalist society. Book two brings you closer to Levi Colburn and Mandy Foster, while we continue to learn more about Connor and Lydia.I listened to the audio over a two-day period, and hated to put it down the first evening. You won't regret picking up this audio book.
