REVIEW: A Flight of Arrows by Lori Benton

About the Book

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 Review

A Flight of Arrows was a top notch sequel! I have to give credit where credit is due. A Flight of Arrows is probably one of the best sequels I have ever read. It is set at the beginning of the Revolutionary War and the historical accuracy is meticulous. Lori obviously went out of her way to fully research and dive into Revolutionary history. A Flight of Arrows is history, it is a love story, it is a story of forgiveness, and also a story chronicling Native American history which I very much appreciate. As someone of Native American descent I am so glad to have a book with Native American characters. I highly recommend A Flight of Arrows, but you will want to read the first book, A Wood's Edge first.
