A Flight of Arrows: Note to Readers

I posted this recently on Goodreads, but I know not all my readers hang out there, and I wanted to share these few words from my heart about this upcoming release:

A Flight of Arrows (The Pathfinders, #2)A Flight of Arrows by Lori Benton




Dear Readers,

The Pathfinders series is really one story told across two books. A Flight of Arrows tells the second half—the life-altering consequences of choices the characters made in the first book, The Wood’s Edge—played out against the turmoil of an 18th century frontier war. As usual with my characters, those you met in The Wood's Edge (Anna, William, Two Hawks, Reginald, Lydia, Good Voice and Stone Thrower, etc.) are wrestling with and working through issues that have been stirring in my own heart in recent days. Areas where God wants to grow me up a little more. Into His image. Into Christ-likeness.

As I explored these issues and told this story of adventure, love, war, family, sacrifice, and triumph, it became clear to me that it went deeper than words on the page, deep as an intimate conversation between me and a sovereign, loving God. It is a statement of trust that He is working all things in my life together for good. Even the hard, heartbreaking things. At its essence it is me telling Him how I see Him, declaring, "I believe you. I trust you. No matter what."

My hope is that by the last page of this book you will have experienced a stirring of renewed trust in a good (and good-doing) Heavenly Father standing ready to light your path. To give you a future and a hope.

My anticipation for this book's release is off the charts! Can't wait for you to dive into "the rest of the story," as Paul Harvey (for those of you old enough to remember him!) would say. :)

Blessings!
Lori
