Waiting on Wednesday #156: The Wood's Edge

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're
eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Wood's Edge by Lori Benton
WaterBrook Press-April 21, 2015

About the Book
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 Want It
I was very impressed with Lori's last novel and I am hoping this one is just as good! It is a very interesting premise that should make this a fascinating read! Also one of my favorite authors said it was amazing so I am sure I will love it!

LS Murphy-She's a bit of a newer author (I think this is only her third book) but she's rather talented!

Stina-Thanks!
