Book Spotlight-Litfuse Tour-Many Sparrows by Lori Benton

A tour hosted by Litfuse.  I didn't receive my copy in time for my scheduled slot.  Today I am sharing a spotlight.  I have not read the book. 

Many Sparrows
About the book 
Many Sparrows (WaterBrook, August 2017)
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?
And I thought
I expected a simply Historical Christian Romance. 
Many Sparrows by Lori Benton is much more.   This truly is a story of bravery, passion and forgiveness.  

And it's a story of waiting on God.  Leaving the reader with an example of how even in trying times God is at work.

Many Sparrows was not a simple fast read.  It was a sink your teeth into the twists and turns and hang on through the challenges, struggles and emotions that Clare faces.   

This was my first chance to read a book by Lori Benton. (I know your thinking what wrong have I been under)  I appreciated the opportunity Litfuse has given me and introduced my to Lori. 

Many Sparrows is a beautifully written story that women that enjoy historical romances would love!  

I look forward to reading more!

I received a complimentary copy from Litfuse.
