A Flight of Arrows is book 2 in the Path Finders series written by Lori Benton. This story takes place in 1776 during the Revolutionary War.. Twenty years earlier, Reginald Aubrey’s wife gave birth to a baby that died. Meanwhile, Good Voice gave birth to twin boys. Reginald steels the one that has the lightest colored skin,William. Reginald has also adopts a daughter, Anna. As time goes on, Anna becomes friends with the darker skinned baby, Two Hawks. Two Hawks and his parents, Stone Thrower and Good Voice are Christians and forgive Reginald for steeling their other son.
Anna and Two Hawks love each other but Reginald will not give them his blessings as Two Hawks is part Native American and for them to marry it would make Anna’s life difficult. Even though Reginald raise William as his son, and William is the biological brother of Two Hawks, Reginald cannot accept Two Hawks as Anna’s husband.
War breaks out between the Native Americans and the British. William is in the British army. Two Hawks and his father are searching for William. The two brothers are caught in the fighting against each other.
This is a very intense book. There is a lot of action and a lot of characters within the story. Having not read the first book, I had trouble getting to know who the characters were and where they were. And not being familiar with the area where the book takes place, I found it very hard to follow along with it. The book is a good story, I appreciate the respect Two Hawks has for Anna. The story repeatedly mentions that should Two Hawks and Anna marry, Two Hawks, the man would leave his family and joins Anna’s, the woman’s, family. The story has a good story within it, if you can get past all the other stuff going on. It is a story of forgiveness, the parents of the twin boys forgive Reginald for stealing William.. For this reason I will give this book a 4. I do not feel it is a stand alone book. I feel that the series need to be read in order to fully understand what is happening. There also is a lot of details within the story.
I received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books for an honest review.
