This is truly one of those books that I enjoyed so much that it’s hard to review because the picture painted overall is so organically portrayed, but I’ll do my best.
First, the setting and the historical detail – the history here is so rich and textured. One thing that really enhances my reading experience is when the setting is vivid and thoroughly portrayed. Lori takes time to describe and set up scenes to where I felt fully immersed within each moment of the story. Sure, there were places, names, and timing to keep up with, but for me, nothing was overdone or hard to follow. I gobbled up the details and feel that they made the reading experience that much better.
The characters are some of my favorite that I have ever met. Usually when there are several characters in a story, I have a preference for one over another. In this story, I sincerely loved all of the character equally and thought they all contributed to the story in a realistic way. Through these characters, Lori shows how the choices one makes in a split second can be life-altering, not only to the one who made the choice, but to everyone connected to them. The choice Reginald Aubrey made in the beginning of the first book has been revealed and its consequences are being played out in dramatic, realistic fashion here. These flawed, wholly-human characters won my heart as they fought for love and family, redemption and forgiveness.
I can’t say much about the heartrending climax of the story without giving something away, but the feeling and sacrifice shown by these characters brought tears to my eyes. The effects of this decision were also far reaching, but in a way that showed a beautiful, redemptive contrast with Reginald’s decision all those years ago. The epilogue gave me a feeling of satisfaction and joy, without feeling like the road to this point no longer mattered or that there would no longer be struggles and hurdles for them to overcome. I love when stories don’t truly feel wrapped up, but rather you can see the characters as they continue on in their lives. It was superbly done.
A Flight of Arrows is an honest, uplifting story of faith. Both of the Pathfinder books are on my keeper shelf, and I am already looking forward to reading them again.

A Flight of Arrows is the second book in The Path Finder series. You will wan’t to read the first book in the series , The Wood’s Edge , before you read this one, so you can better understand the story and the characters .Lori Benton pens us a fantastic story in these two books. You can tell that a lot of research was done . There was times when i caught myself was crying . The story and the characters both were great. The end of Wood’s Edge left me wanting more. This story is told in these two books. I felt so sorry for William, Anna, and Two Hawks. Love the spiritual message Benton sends us. God can take something evil and turn in around into something good. These two families have been through a lot. Can they ever become friends?
I was given an ARC of this book for my honest review.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review and I have done that.
Benton immerses readers in the story’s historical place and time through writing that’s elegant and organic. She vividly recreates the British campaign through the Mohawk Valley in 1777, portraying its effect on those caught up in it: American, British, and Native American. Against this larger backdrop the very personal struggles of Stone Thrower and Good Voice, Reginald and Lydia, Anna and Two Hawks, William and the Oneida Nation play out in a haunting and heart-wrenchingly beautiful story of grief and joy, sin and sacrifice, love lost and regained.
Anna and Two Hawks ache to marry but cannot for Reginald’s refusal to grant permission. Reginald and Lydia hover on the cusp of a long-delayed love, but between them stands Reginald’s inability to accept forgiveness for the desperate act that tore another family apart and ultimately estranged William and Anna from him. Even though Stone Thrower and Good Voice chose through great heartache to clothe themselves in God’s grace toward Reginald, they fear they may never embrace their lost son after all. For William, shattered at discovering that the identity he believed his was a sham, has fled to join the British Army to oppose the man who stole him.
Now both Reginald and Stone Thrower join in a desperate journey to find William and bring him back. If he can be persuaded. If he can embrace his true identity. If they can save him from the ravages of war, an act that will require one man’s unthinkable sacrifice.
I love this historical setting. I love how Benton’s characters are rendered so believably that I ached for and rejoiced with each one. How Benton portrays God working through the lives of each of these frail, flawed, broken human beings to accomplish His perfect purpose is indeed a wonder to behold. She offers the strength, hope, and grace all of us need for our own journey.
