Product Description

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?

Editorial Reviews

"Meticulously researched. Alive and engaging. The Wood’s Edge is a journey through the footsteps of America’s formative years, with characters so wonderfully complex and a story of redemption so deep, only Lori Benton could tell it. I was transfixed from the first absorbing page to the last."
—Kristy Cambron, author of The Butterfly and the Violin and A Sparrow in Terezin

"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, best-selling author of Love Without End and Whenever You Come Around

"Open The Wood’s Edge and see the secret. Then, hold it—page after page—breathless. Rich in history and lush in story, Lori Benton’s novel brings to life a cast of characters in a tale that spans two generations, two cultures, two worlds. In an era underrepresented in Christian historical fiction, Benton takes on the challenge of presenting the message of faith in its purest form. Love, grace, rebirth."
—Allison Pittman, author of On Shifting Sand

    I am a critical reader (former editor). Lori Benton is one of the most thorough researchers for her historical romance writings. I am not bored in reading her work and get excited when she has a new book out! Her books are for fun reading which easily translates into fun learning. (No. Am not related to Lori Benton. Have never met the author).

    From the first page, this story takes you on an adventure of trust, love, and forgiveness. I originally picked this novel because it was part of a sale. I was not disappointed. Highly recommended-can't wait to read the next one!

    What a story! The characters have such depth; the reader cannot help to become reluctant for the book to end. This story is set in the 1700s in New York. A baby, a twin, is taken from his mother shortly after birth and replaced with a baby who has just passed. The lives of the twins, one living as a Native American and one as the son of Welsh immigrants, are the focus of this historical adventure. Family relationships, a romance to rival Rhett and Scarlett, and lessons in faith prevail. There is a sequel, A Flight of Arrows, that I will definitely be reading!

    This review was written for The Wood's Edge: A Novel - eBook.
    The Wood's Edge took me by surprise. I'm not a huge fan of historical fiction, but then, neither am I opposed to it. Now and then, I read a historical novel that blows me away. Such was the case with The Wood's Edge. I loved it! From the action-packed first scene to the surprising culmination, I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. She had me at babies, hooked me with what befell them, and kept me squirming on that hook with the events that followed one devastating action carried out by an otherwise good man. The characters were all well-developed, the writing stellar, the story line captivating. Definitely a winner!
