Review & Giveaway: Many Sparrows by Lori Benton

Many SparrowsMany Sparrows is definitely one of the best books that I have read this year! These characters just pulled me in. I felt heartache, frustration, desperation, hope, peace, love, and much more. The author elicited so many emotions from me while I read this novel.

I loved the two main characters in this story. I was amazed as I watched Clare’s growth throughout the novel. There were times, early on in the story, when Clare really struggled with controlling her reactions. She had to go through a lot and I was so impressed with what the author taught her on this journey. Many of the things that Clare had to learn were taught to her by Jeremiah. He had his own struggles, as well. I loved learning about him and seeing how he grew. The main characters and many of the side characters captured my attention and made this book one that I could hardly set down.

Finally, the author made me feel like I was really back in time while reading Many Sparrows. I was absolutely immersed in the time period, the customs, and the wildness of the setting. I highly recommend this wonderful novel!

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Many SparrowsEither 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?

  32. Bree NarnianWarHorse says:

    I’ve read The Woods Edge and it’s sequel and was amazed by how much they pulled me back into an era very little is written fairly or realistically about. Not to mention how enjoyable it is to just read Lori’s writing for the pure pleasure of seeing how richly and masterfully she’s woven her words together. I know of very few other authors I’ve enjoyed that way, and none of them write historical fiction. I’m so looking forward to reading more of Lori’s books!!
