Flight of Arrows

Twenty Years ago, during the devastating fall of Fort William Henry in 1757, a young Redcoat named Reginald Aubrey stole a newborn boy, the lighter-skinned of Oneida twins, 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, Williams 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 attach frontier New York, and the Continentals, aided by Two Hawks and the Oneida warriors, rally to defend it.  As the Revolutionary war penetrates the Mohawk Valley, two families separated by culture but united by love and faith must find a way to reclaim the son marching toward them in the ranks of their enemies.

When I first received this book I was not quite sure how much I would like it, and it turns out I didn't like it...I loved it!  This is the second book in The Path Finder series.  I have not read the first book in the series, but after reading this one I definitely will go back and start from the beginning!

Flight of Arrows is a beautifully written story that is rich in faith and forgiveness.  Once you start you will not want to put it down.  I love historically based fiction that is rich in history.  Lori Benton did some amazing research for this book and it shines through in her story telling.  This is one of the best books I have read this year and it will definitely be going on my shelf of favorites!

***Thanks to for providing me with this book in exchange for my honest review.
