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!
