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. 

Lori Benton never fails to deliver a captivating historical novel, and A Flight of Arrows offers an excellent example of such a novel. With moving emotional and spiritual depth, this newest novel from Benton takes its readers on an adventure of war, family, and love not to be soon forgotten. Fans of historical fiction, don’t miss it.

A Flight of Arrows continues the story that began in The Wood’s Edge. The cast of characters now deals with the challenges presented by years-old choices and secrets against the vividly portrayed backdrop of the Revolutionary War. It’s a beautifully told story that captured both my imagination and heart, and I loved it. Ever since I finished reading The Wood’s Edge, I eagerly waited to read this second Pathfinders novel, and I’m so glad it did not disappoint. I highly recommend A Flight of Arrows (though do be sure to read The Wood’s Edge first). 

Thanks to Blogging for Books, I received a copy of A Flight of Arrows and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
