Flight Of Arrows written by Lori Benton’s book is the second in the Pathfinder series. In book one of the series, The Woods Edge, we are told the story of Reginald Aubrey, a grieving father whose love for his wife, causes him to exchange his dead newborn son for a baby boy born to a white mother and Indian father. In this book, A Flight of Arrows, the story continues.
Twenty years have passed since Reginald Aubrey made the choice that forever changed his life and the lives of Stone Thrower, Good Voice, and their sons. When William Aubrey, finds out his true heritage he runs away to join forces with the British, leaving behind his grieving family. Reginald and Stone Thrower must put aside any ill feelings so they can find William and bring him back home.
Two Hawks, the twin raised with their Oneida people has a reason of his own for wanting to be the one to bring his brother home; he wishes to gain trust and respect from Reginald so he can ask for his daughter, Anna’s hand in marriage. Will they be able to find William before the war snatches him away from them permanently?
The book is filled with details and will transport you to a historical time period. There are times where the story gets a little slow, but all in all the book is a great read, and you won’t regret picking it up!

From This Day Forward by Lauraine Snelling is the final book in the Song of Blessing series. Let me state that I have only read one other book in this series. So some of the characters and happenings were confusing for me because I had not read the entire series. Some of the plot got a little boring for me, but when I figured out what was going on and connected the dots so to say, I enjoyed it a little more. Continue reading →
This Road We Traveled written by Jane Kirkpatrick is about a woman named Tabitha Brown and her family. Tabitha travels with her family as they head to Oregon from Missouri. The sacrifices they made for the trip and the goodbyes to friends and family are hard on Tabitha and her family, but the Oregon Trail proves to be even harder.
I personally tried to really like this book but it seemed to be so slow! I really couldn’t get connected with the characters or the story line. The subject of the Oregon Trail has always been intriguing to me and i thought this book would be a great read, but I couldn’t seem to connect at all with the book or even enjoy it. I really tried, but the writing style and the long drawn out details just weren’t for me.
On the upper hand, there is tons of history woven into the book. I did like that part. With historic figures, places, and the time period itself. I wished I had enjoyed this more so I could recommend it.
*I was given this book in exchange for my honest review
I hear people say “oh I could never give up (insert food of choice)”. When I tell people I have given up dairy, grains or sugar I get this blank stare. Like they just found out I’m from krypton and find my food choices odd. Continue reading →
A Love Transformed is the third book in the Sapphire Brides series written by Traci Peterson. I personally have loved the series so far, and love each story. The characters really seem to jump out of the book and almost become real with the writing style of Traci Peterson. The stories are written well, and will keep you turning the pages until the end.

A Heart Most Certain written by Melissa Jagears is a fascinating book. My first thoughts after reading this book were “WOW”. This book wasn’t your typical fluffy novel. It was a book that made you think and look at your own heart at the end. Continue reading →
