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.

Book 2 in the Pathfinder Series

As I read A Flight of Arrows: A Novel, I thought about The Woodâ??s Edge, the previous book in The Pathfinders series, and was once again reminded of the quiet yet strong faith and the conviction that bursts forth from the tone of the omniscient narrator in both books. Both books are imbued with the same strong air of comfort that comes of knowing that our fates are held in the hands of a loving, forgiving God.The style that is followed is...

A Flight of Arrows is no less emotional and no less heartbreaking than the first book The Woodâ??s Edge. Told in a troubling time period of Americans vs the British and the Native Peoples between the struggle, the saga of a lost son, a longing brother, and two fathers wanting to make things right continues. Bonds will be formed and others will be tested.  The fight for a country is nothing like the fight for a family.I enjoyed The Woodâ??s...
