Many Sparrows When settler Clare Inglesby is widowed on a mountain crossing and her young son, Jacob, captured by Shawnees, she'll do everything in her power to get him back, including cross the Ohio River and march straight into the presence of her enemies deep in Indian country. Frontiersman and adopted Shawnee, Jeremiah Ring, promises to guide Clare through the wilderness and help her recover Jacob. Once they reach the Shawnees and discover Jeremiah's own Shawnee sister, Rain Crow, has taken custody of Jacob--renaming him Many Sparrows--keeping his promise becomes far more complicated, the consequences more wrenching, than Jeremiah could have foreseen.
Oh my!!! The best Lori Benton book yet!!! I'm going to put this on in my list as my fave books.
Lori has put her heart and soul into this beautiful novel. I love how she takes her time to do research for this book and brings it to life.
In the battle scene I could actually picture the scene happening.
I hate it that that Clare has went thru so much and I learned some things along with her.
I think this story is very emotional, and definitely very powerful.
I could hear the Indian drums a drumming and I very vividly could see the dancers
All in all I just loved this book
I received this book for free an no compensations were received. All words expressed are my own
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Lori Benton was born and raised east of the Appalachian Mountains, surrounded by early American and family history going back to the 1600s. Her novels transport readers to the 18th century, where she brings to life the Colonial and early Federal periods of American history, creating a melting pot of characters drawn from both sides of a turbulent and shifting frontier, brought together in the bonds of God's transforming grace.
When she isn’t writing, reading, or researching 18th century history, Lori enjoys exploring the mountains with her husband.
Burning Sky, Lori's debut novel, was a finalist for the ECPA 2014 Christian Book Award, and winner of the 2014 Christy Award for First Novel, Historical, and Book of the Year.
