A Flight of Arrows
October 1776--August 1777
It is said that what a man sows he will reap--and for such a harvest there is no set season. No one connected to Reginald Aubrey is untouched by the crime he committed twenty years ago.
Not William, the Oneida child Reginald stole and raised as his own. Identity shattered, enlisted in the British army, William trains with Loyalist refugees eager to annihilate the rebels who forced them into exile. Coming to terms with who and what he is proves impossible, but if he breaks his Loyalist oath, he'll be no better than the man who constructed his life of lies.
Not Anna, Reginald's adopted daughter, nor Two Hawks, William's twin, both who long for Reginald to accept their love despite the challenges they will face, building a marriage that bridges two cultures.
Not Good Voice and Stone Thrower, freed of bitterness by a courageous act of forgiveness, but still yearning for their firstborn son and fearful for the future of their Oneida people.
As the British prepare to attack frontier New York and Patriot regiments rally to defend it, two families separated by culture, united by love, will do all in their power to reclaim the son marching toward them in the ranks of their enemies.
My thoughts: Lori has done it again! Her stories are masterpieces, as she blends history, suspense, and fantastic characters! I love that she writes about early American history and the relationship that the colonist/early American settlers had with the Native Americans. She doesn't shy away from difficult subjects, but handles them in an excellent way. This is one of those stories that will stick with you long after you finish the final page! It was well worth the wait.:)
I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
