Lori Benton's The Wood's Edge - Guest Review

The Wood's Edge by Lori Benton
Regina Fujitani's Guest Review of The Wood's Edge by Lori Benton (Waterbrook, May, 2015)

Lori Benton has written a riveting tale of two families, the Oneida and the British. Two families-two cultures that will be impacted by a decision that will change their lives. A young woman is caught between two worlds. A young man is destined to help both families, and to be reunited with his twin brother.

A British colonel loses his baby in childbirth. A young mother with twins that are different in color, one white and one brown. The baby that died has been switched with the white twin. A father that loves his wife, is desperate to save her from another loss.

As the story begins, the Indians and French are fighting an English fort. Two women give birth, one baby dies, the other gives birth to twins.. As the father is evacuating the fort with his wife and the baby she believes is hers. As they are retreating they are attacked by Indians. A fight for their survival becomes imminent.

Colonel Aubrey's adopted daughter, Anna, finds herself friends with Two Hawks. Two Hawks is William's brother. As the story unfolds and the truth comes out, will the two fathers find forgiveness? Or, will there be a war?

I loved how Lori told this story. I felt like I was there during the Indian raid, with Anna, Two Hawks, and William. I felt like I was right there in The Wood's Edge. From the first page to the very last, Lori will keep you drawn into the pages. This beautiful story is worth your time!

I give this book five stars! I cannot wait to read the next book!

Regina Fujitani is a reader, reviewer, and Beta reader for Christian authors. She lives in the Dakotas with her family and is about to become mother-of-the-bride!

  18. Regina Fujitani congratulations on the upcoming wedding of your daughter. This is such a special time in life. Make many happy memories. You did a beautiful review Regina. I am so excited about this book. This is one special book and I first heard about it on Carrie's blog. I had never heard of this author but this book sounded so great and had me so intrigued that I looked up other books by the author and checked the other 2 out of the library. I love the rich historical detail of this and hope to be reading it soon. Deanne Cnnamongirl(at)aol(dot)com
