Review: A Flight of Arrows by Lori Benton


My rating: 5 of 5 stars



ABOUT THE BOOK

Hearts are Divided
Loyalties Will Be Tested
The Fates of Two Families Hang in the Balance

Twenty years past, in 1757, a young Redcoat, Reginald Aubrey stole a newborn boy—the lighter-skinned of Oneida twins— during the devastating fall of Fort William Henry and raised him as his own.

No one connected to Reginald escaped unscathed from this crime. Not his adopted daughter Anna. Not Stone Thrower, the Native American father determined to get his son back. Not Two Hawks, William’s twin brother separated since birth, living in the shadow of his absence and hoping to build a future with Anna. Nor Lydia, who longs for Reginald to be free from his self-imposed emotional prison and embrace God’s forgiveness— and her love.

Now William, whose identity has been shattered after discovering the truth of his birth, hides in the ranks of an increasingly aggressive British army. The Redcoats prepare to attack frontier New York and the Continentals, aided by Oneida warriors including Two Hawks, rally to defend it. As the Revolutionary War penetrates the Mohawk Valley, two families separated by culture, united by love and faith, must find a way to reclaim the son marching toward them in the ranks of their enemies.

Book 2 in the Pathfinder Series


MY REVIEW

Such an intense follow up to the first book in the series, The Woods Edge!  With the danger of the Revolutionary War in the background and the drama of two families separated by culture but united by love, faith, and forgiveness, you'll be glued to the pages of this book!

Although not a big fan of stories that include war, Lori Benton is such an awesome writer that I got pulled into the lives of the characters and felt their hopes, dreams, sorrows, struggles, sacrifices, faith, and the drama that surrounds them.  You are also taught, with great depth, the fact that learning to trust and lean on God will help you in life's struggles.  Your path may not be easy or smooth but He can give you the strength to endure and come out triumphant!
