Publisher's Summary

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.

Wow!

What a story! Hope, redemption, forgiveness, sacrifice, salvation, true love, pain, sorrow, healing, new life... This moved me to tears more than once; tears of sorrow, tears of joy. It's not a "light" read, but if you want a book that will leave an impression on you and make you better for it, take a listen to this one. It's a long journey, but worth every mile!

A wonderful conclusion to the story.

This book picks up where "The Wood's Edge" left off, completing the story in a heart wrenching manner. "Creator has a plan".....

Intense and penetrating

As always. Benton's story creates an emotional connection with all the main characters. The story is fascinatingly told. Even the battle details create mental understanding rather than chaotic excitement. However, unlike "the Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn", I will not be reading this one again. In spite of the need to resolve the story as it is read, it was disturbing to me, personally. The characters were a means of personalizing a horror in history.
