Waiting On:
Title: The Wood's Edge
Author: Lori Benton
Publisher: WaterBrooke
Publication Date: April 21st, 2015

Synopsis:
From GoodReads
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?
Why I'm Waiting:
From her debut novel, Lori Benton has hooked me with her writing and story telling. Goodness, her stories end far too quickly. I love her books and I can't wait for her newest story. It is the perfect mix of history and romance.

What are you waiting on this week?

Oh, this sounds so INCREDIBLY AWESOME!! I love historical fiction, and this one includes a Christian angle, as well. Sounds like a truly memorable story! God is always able to bring blessings out of misfortune, so I'm very interested to see how He works that out n this novel. I'm adding this one to my Goodreads shelves and Amazon wish list.

Hope you can check out my WOW at A Night's Dream of Books.

Thanks for sharing the book love!! :)
