A FLIGHT OF ARROWS
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.
An epic family saga that will sweep you back in time to the Revolutionary War. Benton is dedicated to getting her history right but it goes even deeper than just the facts. Her talent lies in bringing it all to life through the power of her words. I'm still wrangling my emotions under control.
Such complicated characters! Realistically flawed and all the more captivating because of it. I wept. I cheered. I fumed. And spent a good deal of my reading time with my heart in my throat barely daring to breathe. I had to pace myself, taking time to pause and absorb different aspects of the story. Reading is too mundane for A Flight of Arrows. This is the kind of book you live and breathe your way through.
Powerful inspirational threads of grace and redemption transform an already incredible read into a truly profound one. It inspires me to renew my trust in a faithful God -- even in the most difficult times. I love when a novel reaches out and touches my life in a personal way like that. Alleluia! This is why I read Christian fiction!
