Review: Many Sparrows by Lori Benton

Blurb (from Amazon):

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?


Many Sparrows is the latest release by Lori Benton. If a reader has not read anything by this author, they don’t know what they are missing. She is one of my favorite authors and Many Sparrows did not disappoint. It is set during my favorite time periods to read- Colonial America. I just love Clare. She is such a great character in this book. Such a strong willed and determined woman. Jeremiah is the perfect hero that she really needed to help her through the tragedies she experiences. I did not find the story to be predictable at all. I never knew what would happen next and could not help but to keep turning the pages. This book is so hard to put down. It is full of adventure and action, heartache and redemption, faith and inspiration. I would give 100 stars if I could. It is so so good. One of the best I have read this year.
Highly recommended.
