First Line Fridays: A Flight of Arrows

Happy Friday!

First Line Fridays is hosted by Hoarding Books and participants share the first line from a nearby
book.

Today I'm sharing the first lines from A Flight of Arrows by Lori Benton:

"Satahuhsiyost -- Listen! Open your ears to a story I will tell you."

Last weekend I started its predecessor, The Wood's Edge, and as I write this, I am currently invested in the characters of that story. They have captured my imagination and I'm thankful for the kind of my book club leader in lending both of these novels to me.

What are you reading this weekend? Share your first line in the comments below.

Have a great weekend! Happy reading!


About the Book:

Twenty years past, in 1757, a young Redcoat, Reginald Aubrey stole a newborn boy—the lighter-skinned of Oneida twins— during the devastating fall of Fort William Henry and raised him as his own. 
 
No one connected to Reginald escaped unscathed from this crime. Not his adopted daughter Anna. Not Stone Thrower, the Native American father determined to get his son back. Not Two Hawks, William’s twin brother separated since birth, living in the shadow of his absence and hoping to build a future with Anna. Nor Lydia, who longs for Reginald to be free from his self-imposed emotional prison and embrace God’s forgiveness— and her love. 
 
Now William, whose identity has been shattered after discovering the truth of his birth, hides in the ranks of an increasingly aggressive British army. The Redcoats prepare to attack frontier New York and the Continentals, aided by Oneida warriors including Two Hawks, rally to defend it. As the Revolutionary War penetrates the Mohawk Valley, two families separated by culture, united by love and faith, must find a way to reclaim the son marching toward them in the ranks of their enemies. 

Book 2 in The Pathfinders Series.

  1. I'm a big fan of Lori Benton's books! I am eagerly anticipating her new release this year! Loved this story also. Great choice!
    I'm currently reading Sarah Sundin's latest book "The Sky Above Us" I'll share here the first line from Chapter 30 (because that's where I am at this moment).
    "At 250 yards, Adler squeezed the trigger. Texas Eagle's bullets erupted the length of the Messerschmitt 110's right wing, and smoke plumed out of the right engine. Flames."

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend and get to enjoy some time reading!

  5. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first line from Brunch at Bittersweet Cafe by Carla Laureano. I am loving this book so much. I’m currently just starting chapter 19, so I will share the first line from that chapter here.

    “‘A bookstore?’ Justin didn’t mean for his dismay to show in his voice when he pulled up in front of the address Melody had given him, but it escaped all the same.”

    Hope you have a really excellent weekend filled with relaxing reading time. πŸ™‚πŸ’œπŸ“š
