About the book:

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?

My Thoughts:

Sitting here staring at my blinking cursor I am trying to put my emotions into thoughts after reading such a powerful book. 

Ms. Benton weaves characters in and around the time period creating a seamless beautiful blanket that wraps around you like an old friend.

From the beginning of the novel I knew my heart was going to be put through the emotional wringer. As a mama of six kids I could feel every emotion that Clare endured in the fight for her son, Jacob. 

This really isn't a story, it is an experience of your heart, mind, and soul. Seeing sorrow turn to joy, fear turn to trust, hate turn to love, and most importantly forgiveness turn to hope. 

Highly recommended!
