A Flight of Arrows
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.

About the Author:
Lori Benton was born and raised east of the Appalachian Mountains, surrounded by early American and family history going back to the 1600s. Her novels transport readers to the 18th century, where she brings to life the Colonial and early Federal periods of American history, creating a melting pot of characters drawn from both sides of a turbulent and shifting frontier, brought together in the bonds of God’s transforming grace.
Lori’s debut novel, Burning Sky, earned the 2014 Christy Award for First Novel, Historical, and Book of the Year.
A Flight of Arrows is Book two in the Pathfinder Series written by Lori Benton. Taking place in 1757, continuing the story from the Wood’s Edge, A Flight of Arrows tells us the story of William Aubrey, the baby stolen by Reginald Aubrey. William finds out the truth about his birth and runs away, hides in the ranks of the British Army. Reginald, along with Stone Thrower must put aside the differences they have to search and save William before its too late. William’s brother, Two Hawks, wants to be the one to bring his brother back to win over favor with Reginald so he can marry Anna.
Ms. Benton has written another fabulous story! One you will not be able to put down until its finished. I do highly recommend reading The Woods Edge before you read A Flight of Arrows to understand the full story of this family. If you have a heart for Historical Christian Fiction then you will want to add this one to your collection.
