Into the Wild

The Wood's Edge (The Pathfinders, #1) Read Online Free - At the wood's edge cultures collide. Can two families survive the impact?

The 1757 New York frontier is home to the Oneida tribe and to British colonists, yet their feet rarely walk the same paths.

On the day Fort William Henry falls, Major Reginald Aubrey is beside himself with grief. His son, born that day, has died in the arms of his sleeping wife. When Reginald comes across an Oneida mother with newborn twins, one white, one brown, he makes a choice that will haunt the lives of all involved. He steals the white baby and leaves his own child behind. Reginald's wife and foundling daughter, Anna, never suspect the truth about the boy they call William, but Reginald is wracked by regret that only intensifies with time, as his secret spreads its devastating ripples.

When the long buried truth comes to light, can an unlikely friendship forged at the wood's edge provide a way forward? For a father tormented by fear of judgment, another by lust for vengeance. For a mother still grieving her lost child. For a brother who feels his twin's absence, another unaware of his twin's existence. And for Anna, who loves them both--Two Hawks, the mysterious Oneida boy she meets in secret, and William, her brother. As paths long divided collide, how will God direct the feet of those who follow Him?

Can I have ten stars, please? Five is not sufficient for a story this deep and detailed! In fact, I've been putting off this review for way too long because I don't rightly know how to express how enjoyable this book was for me. It's the type of story that draws you in and doesn't let you go. It'...

AMAZING!! Absolutely, unequivocally, beyond adequate words of praise - rich, authentic, captivating - amazing! And that's just the story. Isn't the cover amazingly gorgeous, too?? The Wood's Edge is by far, the best book I've read this year. One of the most satisfying and richly drawn historical s...

{3.5 stars} I had barely begun Many Sparrows by this same author, when I knew I would have to snatch up the rest of her books. I've always longed for books that would whirl me into a descriptive world, and hold my attention on every page. Lori Benton does just that for me. This book was a whirlwind...

From the opening scene to the last line of the book, I was captivated by The Wood’s Edge. Rich in history, with characters to weep for and to cheer for, this is a novel that will linger in my heart for a long time to come. ~ Robin Lee Hatcher, bestselling author of Love Without End and Whenever Yo...

What an amazing saga, and I'm so glad I'm only halfway through it since this is the first in a two-book series! Lori Benton's ability really shines in this novel (as it does with all her others). I was so impressed with how she was able to span from the end of the French and Indian War to the beg...

A beautiful story of faith, forgiveness, and God’s redeeming grace, The Wood’s Edge blurs the lines between history and fiction in a beautiful way. Set in 1700s New York, this historical novel is one you will not want to miss. You’ll be swept up from the very first page, and will not want to be...

(4.5) I don’t recall giving this book permission to end. Yet, it went against all of my bookish wishes and did. How terribly rude. I’m here to prepare you Internet, so you’re welcome! I don’t read much historical fiction from this era, but when it comes to Lori Benton’s novels, I can’t help myself....

Beautiful Writing - Check Compelling Storyline - Check Historical Detail - Check I could not ask for more. This was a phenomenal novel and as good or perhaps better than Burning Sky, Lori's debut release. I anxiously await the continuation of this story in The Flight of Arrows.

MY REVIEW: It took me several tries to persuade myself to start reading this book just because it looked long and I wasn't sure if it would hold my interest with the expanse of years it covers. Was I ever wrong! It was an awesome read! This story follows the lives of those impacted by one terrible...
