A Flight of Arrows by Lori Benton

About A Flight of Arrows

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.

My Thoughts

I have been  watching for this book as it is the second book in the series and it begins right where book one, The Wood’s Edge ended. This series pulled me right in  when one of the newborn twins is taken at birth from it’s sleeping  mother and then raised in secret as their own, I wanted this second book to take me on into how this family  secret is dealt with and it did not disappoint.  I found this book to bring out how the Indian and the white man struggled with their relationships with God. I liked how this story  brought out how  faith can become stronger through strife and making amends for wrongs can be forgiven and worked through. How this family dealt with the war and the life problems that it brought with it made for a wonderful family drama. I enjoyed reading A Flight of Arrows. If you  enjoy reading Historical fiction about the Native American Indian  or the Revolutionary war  you should enjoy Lori Benton’s writing.   I received this book from Blogging for Books in return for my honest opinion.
