Many Sparrows by Lori Benton from Litfuse Publicity

Many Sparrows (WaterBrook, August 2017)
Either she and her children would emerge from that wilderness together, or none of them would. . . .
In 1774, the Ohio-Kentucky frontier pulses with rising tension and brutal conflicts as Colonists push westward and encroach upon Native American territories. The young Inglesby family is making the perilous journey west when an accident sends Philip back to Redstone Fort for help, forcing him to leave his pregnant wife Clare and their four-year old son Jacob on a remote mountain trail.
When Philip does not return and Jacob disappears from the wagon under the cover of darkness, Clare awakens the next morning to find herself utterly alone, in labor and wondering how she can to recover her son . . . especially when her second child is moments away from being born.
Clare will face the greatest fight of her life, as she struggles to reclaim her son from the Shawnee Indians now holding him captive. But with the battle lines sharply drawn, Jacob’s life might not be the only one at stake. When frontiersman Jeremiah Ring comes to her aid, can the stranger convince Clare that recovering her son will require the very thing her anguished heart is unwilling to do—be still, wait and let God fight this battle for them?

Lori Benton leaves her Readers in awe once again with this compelling Native American story. Many Sparrows is a wonderfully written story full of emotions, both difficult and happy. Many sorrows, heartaches and difficult decisions were felt by these very hardworking and loyal people. And yet there was much love and happiness. Clare comes to know these people through very horrific circumstances, with the help of Jeremiah Ring. Their way is not easy, Especially since Clare isn’t trained to live in the conditions she is having to face. But for Jeremiah, what would she do.

Clare may be very pregnant and alone but she very well shows she can take care of herself. I love her feisty spunk and determination. And Jeremiah, wow, he’s just that every woman’s man. His patients with Clare was much more than most men would ever be! And he knows how to survive in any situation, whether it be the white man or Indian.

Lori Benton does such an amazing job of detail in this book. From the historical white mans ways to those of the Native Americans, each scene was described so vividly. The people, the land, the Indian community, every scene was historic and amazingly and wonderfully described. It was so realistic. I was so glued to the pages I felt like I was inside that book, living the story. I just can’t say enough good things about ‘Many Sparrows.’ So much happening in this book, that you just have to read it. And if you are a fan of Native American stories, this one is a must.

And I can’t leave out the way Ms. Benton weaves the Christian lifestyle throughout he lives of the character. No matter how difficult the situation, how long prayers are being said, Ms. Benton clearly shows that God is faithful and He is in control no matter what. I love it when authors speak out about Jesus in their characters.

This is definitely one of my favorite reads. It will stay with me for a long time. I received this book from Litfuse Publicity Blog Tours to read and review.
