Publisher's Description

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?

Editorial Reviews

"Stunning. Many Sparrows is everything I want in a book: settings that spring to life, characters I love, rich historical context, heart-wrenching drama, timeless spiritual insights, and prose that reads like poetry. Lori Benton handles the conflicted eighteenth century with sensitivity in this tender tale of hope and fear, faith and doubt, loss and new life. Truly, this is an inspired masterpiece sure to stir the soul."
—Jocelyn Green, award-winning author of The Mark of the King

"Intense. Enlightening. Lustrous. Many Sparrows is a lesson in early American history wrapped up in a beautiful romance, one not only of the human heart but of God’s heart for His creation. I cherished Clare and Jeremiah’s quietly blossoming love and deeply felt their struggle to trust and reach that painful yet unburdening place of surrender. Many sighs. And many thanks to the author."
—Tamara Leigh, USA Today best-selling author of The Vexing and Lady Betrayed

"Lori Benton vividly portrays characters wrestling with a God they can’t explain but desperately need to trust. Many Sparrows is a heart-searching story where love trumps hate, and hard-won forgiveness leads to soaring hope. Held captive to the end by the characters’ inescapable conflicts, I shouted for joy when I read the masterful ending. Truly, this is history made personal and believable."
—Mesu Andrews, author of Miriam

"Lori Benton weaves a beguiling tapestry of prose, pathos, and faith in Many Sparrows, a story as hopeful as it is heartrending. Shedding light on the ferocity of a mother’s love and the beauty and complexity of Shawnee culture and community, Benton’s boundless talent shines ever brighter as a rich and mesmerizing story unfolds. Each character is wonderfully authentic and honestly drawn, but it is Jeremiah’s devotion to God, the tension between his two worlds, and the vow he made to a grieving woman that caught my breath many times over. Exquisitely told, Many Sparrows reaches all the deep spaces of the heart, abiding long after the last page is turned."
—Rel Mollet, RelzReviewz.com

"Many Sparrows is a beautifully threaded tapestry, rich with spiritual imagery and relatable characters, set in the boiling-pot world of the pre–Revolutionary Ohio-Kentucky frontier. With her customarily poetic voice and singular ability to bring eighteenth-century America to sparkling life, Benton weaves a story of fierce loyalty, breathtaking love, and the battles waged when faith is in crisis and survival is unlikely. Another burn-the-midnight-oil piece of literary fiction from one of the finest writers in inspirational fiction."
—Rachel McMillan, author of the Herringford and Watts series

    "Wait on the Lord. Be of good courage." (p 65)

    I love Lori Benton's books but I have to say that Many Sparrows is by far my favourite to date. And that's saying something considering how much I adore her writing. But this story just struck a cord with me. I connected with Clare right from the start. Am in awe of her courage and determination in the face of insurmountable odds. And Jeremiah, a man of solid faith, determined to do what is right. Their breathtaking story is spellbinding. So many twists and turns and the agony of waiting on the Lord plays out in gut-wrenching ways.

    Benton has a heart for this time period and the Native American people. She paints pictures with her words; creates entire scenes with a simple sentence. Rich, vivid, details make me feel like I can smell the smoke of the campfires, picture exactly what the inside of a wegiwa looks like. I'm in awe of the historical details and the care with which the author does her research. It creates a living piece of history that has the power to stir emotions. And I couldn't help but see some unfortunate parallels in past and present. A moving and uplifting historical romance that has also proven to be thought-provoking.

    Lori Benton wrote a fantastic book that is hard to put down. When I first started, I wanted to set it aside because I justcouldn't handle the sadness of what happened. I didn't, though, and it is a book that taught me a lot of history. Even though I completely disagree with what Logan did, I can understand where he was coming from with such a broken heart.

    I felt like I was immersed into the Shawnee tribe as I was reading. I learned a lot about their customs and the way they would take children to help with the loss of one of their own children. I can't imagine what it would have been like to be in either side...the one who lost a child or the one who was using another child to replace their child that died. All I can think of is utter heartbreak.

    The growth in Clare was stunning to read about. Her despair and then her attempt to try to wait on God's timing were not easy things, but watching it all play out was beautiful. She went from a woman wanting to only have her son back, to a woman with a full heart and full hands!

    I absolutely loved many of the Shawnees. Wolf Alone intrigued me, as well as Wildcat. I do with she would have told more of their story, but perhaps they will reappear in a separate novel. I really do hope so! It would be a great story to write, as I know I cannot be the only reader very intrigued by their former lives.

    Jacob's name of "Many Sparrows" was definitely fitting. I did laugh a little as to why they chose this Shawnee name for him! I could see the biblical reference and had never thought about the other reasoning.

    Clare's husband, Philip, was a man that I had mixed feelings about. I felt like he didn't truly love her or listen to her. I'm sure he did love her, but his stubbornness led to a changed life for every single one of them.

    The battle between the army and the Shawnee was hard to read. I know it happened and I understand why, but it was heartbreaking to see how they had been treated. It was hard to see both sides not accepting each other for what each could bring to the table. However, Cornstalk and Nonhelema were bold, courageous, and I absolutely loved these characters. It was interesting to read in the Author's Notes that Lori Benton had gotten to talk to a descendant of Shawnee Chief Cornstalk. How amazing would that have been! Yes, I'm the reader that aboslutely loves to read the author's notes!

    If I have one plea for her next book, pick up where Wolf Alone and Wildcat were left off at!

    This review was written for Many Sparrows - eBook.
    This is the first book by Lori Benton that I have read but it will not be the last. Her historical research shined thru in the clarity of descriptions of battles and landscape. She constructed fascinating pictures of the Shawnee homestead and clothing. Characters revealed just enough of their true selves along the path of struggles to reveal they were realistic and not making choices just to drag out the plot.

    Lori used Scripture quotes throughout the book as characters remembered comforting or encouraging words to share with each other. She even shared when they had a crises of faith and let her characters be honest about where they fell short.

    Ive never been so appreciative of the dictionary function in an ebook. Lori Benton used many rich words that fit the story accurately and kept me learning along the journey.

    I am extremely grateful to WaterBrook & Multnomah Publishers and NetGalley for sharing the ebook of Many Sparrows with me in exchange for an honest review.

    Lori Benton's latest release Many Sparrows, stands out to me as her best novel yet. I quickly fell in love with her characters as she skillfully took me along a journey that brought tears to my eyes and touched my heart to the core.

    Set on the brink of the Revolutionary War, Many Sparrows follows the plight of a young widow striving to rescue her young son kidnapped by Indians. In a swirl of events, brimming with the desperation of a mother fighting a seemingly futile battle for her child, this emotion packed novel brings to life an era and culture so different from our own. In reading this book, my perspectives were challenged and my heart was torn as I so deeply identified with the main character that at times I had to set the book down to process and grieve. Benton delivers a powerful punch with this book, and it hits so close to home that I felt her story with every piece of my heart.

    I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Benton outdid herself with this one, and it deserves recognition.

    I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
